Gourmet popcorn



If you want to avoid unnecessary fat and grease, try popping popcorn at home. It is very easy and delicious, and there are so many ways to get creative with it. Kokopelli's has gourmet popcorn available to buy online.

1/4 cup or 2 tbsp gourmet popcorn
1/2 tbsp coconut oil to toss after popping
salt optional

Put 1/4 cup popcorn in a brown bag, fold it on the top (just like a popcorn bag, but without sealing with pins or tape). Microwave for 2 minutes. When popping slows remove bag. The time depends on the microwave.
Toss with healthy coconut oil and salt, if using and serve.

If you like sweet popcorn sprinkle chocolate, coconut and nuts.

  18. One can never say No to popcorn...especially if its a guilt free option- no fat no grease..They are coming out with studies that coconut oil is in fact good for you. So healthy and delicious popcorn.

  22. I usually buy a big bag of the least expensive popcorn and love to cook it in butter and then salt it.
