Simple, Homemade Popcorn (the old-fashioned way)

This recipe is SO easy that it practically makes itself! It is definitely one of my go to snacks, and a much healthier alternative to the microwave stuff! (Ick, I don't even want to think about what is in the microwave stuff.) Try making it next time you are craving something delicious!


1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
salt, to taste


Heat coconut oil in a medium sized pot on the stove. Once it's melted, add popcorn kernels and give the pot a quick shake. Cover with a lid, leaving it slightly ajar (so the steam can escape). In a couple of minutes, the kernels should start to pop. Shake the pot once or twice (in a circular motion) during the popping. Once the popping has stopped (for about 5 seconds), remove from heat and place in a large serving bowl. Season with your favourite spices or a little salt. 

* I always add the spices after it's popped, otherwise they will burn. My favourite is a little garlic powder sprinkled on top. Or another good one is seasoning salt. There are endless options though! Just try a few different combinations, to find out what you might like the best. And enjoy your healthy, guilt free snack! - Alex
