Healthy Microwave Popcorn

Hi Friends!

Just popping in with another quick tip Tuesday for you! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed one of my favorite snacks has resurfaced lately- POPCORN! I love it. A couple years ago I stopped buying the prepackaged popcorn and started making my own on the stovetop in my dutch oven. That was fine, but it was a lot of work! You have to constantly shake the pan around to keep it from burning and that thing gets heavy! So, last year I started making my own healthy microwave popcorn using a brown paper lunch sack!

You guys, this is so easy! Here’s what you do:

1. Measure out about 1/4 c popcorn kernals
2. Pour them into a paper lunch bag
3. Fold the top over several times and place in the microwave. Use the popcorn button and listen closely. When you hear the pops slow down to a couple seconds between pops, take it out.
4. Enjoy your popcorn! Season it if you wish…just don’t go overboard! I like mine just plain icon smile Healthy Microwave Popcorn

If you want to add a TINY bit of oil to the bag and shake the kernals around in it before popping, you can. I’m talking like an 1/8th of a tsp. But I don’t think it’s necessary.
