Homemade Popcorn

Hi All,

This gluten free/vegan homemade popcorn just melts in your mouth! It’s so easy and quick to make the old fashioned way!  I’ve been having my 5 year old help me make it and we enjoy doing a little popping dance;)

Making it yourself gives you so many flavor options to choose from. It’s such a blank slate to get creative!

Popcorn and a movie just go together. We have been enjoying a lot of kid movies lately and my favorite is and always will be Winnie the Pooh! Although my son is outgrowing them a little, I can still persuade him into watching it from time to time.

Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…

Homemade Popcorn

  • PLACE 2 tbsp. coconut oil into a pot on high heat.
  • ADD 1 tsp. chili powder and 1/3 cup popcorn.
  • PLACE a lid on the pot and shake the pan a little to mix everything together.
  • AFTER you hear the first few pops turn heat to medium-low heat; shaking the pot occasionally.
  • ADD some Himalayan salt cracked black pepper, 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast, and mix well.

I like my homemade popcorn more savory than sweet. However, this is your creation so create what makes you happy!

Here is a photo of our family’s favorite…


I do the same method, but just add nutritional yeast and Himalayan salt when the kernels are completely done popping.

I have added organic/non-gmo corn in moderation back into my life and I seem to be doing alright with it. It’s hard to tell, but until further notice it’s what works for me now. I didn’t touch it for about 7 years.

Grateful Day – I am grateful for spring and all the pretty buds coming through on the trees.

Have you re-introduced a food back into your diet that seems to work alright for you?

Thank you for listening!

  1. I love home popped popcorn! It is tasty and so much less money (and fewer chemicals) than the bagged stuff! The last time I made popcorn on the stovetop I took the lid off before it was done popping and popcorn few everywhere! I won’t make that mistake again!
