This popcorn recipe with coconut oil is not just a good-for-you snack, it’s also filling and nutritious…
Many of you may not realize what a simple, yummy and healthy snack popcorn is, especially my popcorn recipe with coconut oil! Kids love it, too, and of course it’s great for movie night. 🙂
If you’re trying to get more coconut into your diet for these health benefits, but you’re like me and don’t like the flavor in certain recipes, here’s a recipe for people like us. Everyone loves this and it reminds me of how old-fashioned movie popcorn used to taste before they stopped using coconut oil (because it was more expensive than the cheap heart-killer fake oils they use now), and don’t worry, the flavor isn’t overpowering. It also keeps very well in freezer baggies for many days without becoming stale. (I don’t know exactly how long because it doesn’t last long around here.) I’ve even sent it to our friend, Nick, in Iraq and it travels quite well! By the way, some have trouble digesting popcorn, or they can only have a little, so keep that in mind just in case it doesn’t set right with you.
First, don’t miss these posts:
- Wonder how in the world popcorn can be good for us? Or if it’s gmo-free? Shouldn’t popcorn be soaked since it’s a whole grain? Click here to find out all of that and more.
- Have you tried coconut oil topically? I love this Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Moisturizing Cream.
- Try this kettle corn recipe if you want a little something sweet and salty.
- Click here for the popper we use: Stainless Steel Popcorn Popper. I’ve been through many popcorn poppers since we began eating healthier and finally found one I love! This one has no nasty Teflon, no dangerous aluminum next to your food (make sure you get the one with stainless steel throughout), and it tastes much better than when it is cooked in an air popper – those made the popcorn taste dry and blah.

KELLY’S POPCORN RECIPE WITH COCONUT OIL:
- Scoop 2 Tablespoons organic virgin coconut oil into your heated stove-top popper.
- Add 1/2 cup popcorn and cook. I buy organic popcorn.
- After popping, add plenty of real, melted butter and toss to coat. Find pastured butter here — butter from pastured cows has more nutrients! About 4 Tablespoons per batch or so (it’s difficult to have too much butter, right?), use more or less to your taste preference, then add sea salt and toss around again. Be careful adding the salt, you’ll want to add some, test, and add more ’til it’s dreamy.
