Easy Microwave Popcorn

With the booming popularity of Pinterest I find myself, more than ever, questioning, “Why didn’t I think of that?”. Some ideas are so clever it leaves me in awe.

Brown paper lunch sac + popcorn kernels = air popped popcorn…with no dishes. Or oil.

This idea…it’s ingenious. But I wouldn’t have ever come up with it because I’d have considered a fire a more likely result than perfectly popped popcorn.

Alas, I was wrong.

SEVERAL month (years?) ago, I bought a bag of popcorn kernels with every intention of making stove-top popcorn. (In case you’ve been living under a rock, microwave popcorn has become another food under question).

And that stove-top popcorn…it never happened.

First, there’s the issue of dishes. Who would want to clean a big’ol pot when you can throw out a paper lunch sac?

Then there’s there’s the oil in the bottom of that big’ol pot, and I don’t know about you, but I just don’t need or want those added calories.

With my always in-progress weight loss efforts, healthy snacks can quickly becoming boring, tedious, or just not good.

This popcorn can be be made just about anywhere with a microwave, including work. This is a cheaper and healthier option when compared to microwave popcorn and is pretty much fool-proof. Feel free to add seasonings to taste – stevia & cinnamon, garlic salt, seasoning salt…whatever is your pleasure!

    How silly I never thought about this. I buy bagged popcorn because it’s cheaper and a healthy snack for the kids and of course we enjoy it on our Family Fun Nights. I usually make it on the stove with a tad bit of oil but this way is so much healthier.
