Healthy Movie Snack - Non-mircowave microwaved Popcorn

Another "Pin it and Did it" kind of moment!

On the weekend we had movie night and wanted popcorn with it. We're trying to get away from microwave popcorn which is far from being a healthy snack. But on the other hand we didn't want to buy an air popper an have yet another kitchen appliance to find a spot for. Fortunately Pinterest presented us with a solution - microwaved popcorn that you do in a paper bag and season yourself.

Here is the link here to the blog we read on how to do it. Excellent instructions! We just have one suggestion to make the experience a bit better ...

Use 1/3 of a cup of popcorn rather than 1/2! There was some very exciting moments as we raced over to the microwave.

We seasoned it with some microwaved Becel and sea salt. Delicious! It tasted just like air popped without the air popper and very affordable with the cost mostly being the paper bags (dollarstore) and big container of popcorn kernels.

Try it out yourself next movie night!
