Healthy coconut oil popcorn makes the perfect snack! Full of buttery flavor without any of the butter. Made with just two ingredients and then topped with your favorite seasonings.
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve heard me whining about not having power. It’s been out since Friday and our new restoration estimate is tonight at 11:30. We’ll see.
Besides it being dark, which is the obvious inconvenience, we’re going to have to throw away everything in our fridge and freezer. I hate that. A food blogger with an empty fridge and no computer access is pretty useless.
I’m currently at my parents house borrowing some WiFi and electricity to get a few things done. Luckily the weather has cooled down a little so not having AC hasn’t been a huge deal.
In honor of my simpler, power-free, lifestyle, I give you Amish Country Coconut Oil Popcorn. Total coincidence that that’s the brand I used since I actually made this last week, but apparently it was foreshadowing my current condition.
I haven’t made microwave popcorn in years. Like probably over 10 years. I like it better on the stove and really, I think it’s just as easy. This was my first time making it with coconut oil and it was really good.
If it’s the right season, it’s perfect to turn into Monster Munch Halloween Popcorn Mix.
More coconut oil treats: Coconut Oil Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies or Coconut Oil Brownies.

“A food blogger with an empty fridge and no computer access is pretty useless.” – So sorry to hear that all your food had to be thrown out! I REALLY hope your power comes back on soon! Praying for you!
Girl, I’d be going craaaazy with out electricity. Can you believe I’ve never made my own popcorn. As we kid we had a popcorn popper but I’ve never done on the stove thing. I gotta try this! I love the coconut oil!!
I made coconut oil popcorn for the first time on Friday and loved it! I don’t think I will ever switch back

Great idea to use coconut oil! I have a popcorn popper AND coconut oil on hand, so I’m going to try this.

I have come visiting from Sweet 2 Eat Baking as part of the blog hop! I’ve been reading through your posts with interest and actually salivating! Your photography is so fantastic it’s like there is a bowl of popcorn right in front of me! (I wish…)
I blog over at Slummy single mummy if you want to say hi any time.
