From Sweet to Savory to Kinda Spunky … Popcorn Toppings and Seasoning Recipes for Any Mood or Occasion!
If you’re a regular THKer (you totally rock!!), then you remember we just shared a fantastic and absolutely simple method for popping 100% butter-free and oil-free popcorn, right in your microwave.
Steaming hot, it’s perfect in its own all-natural way – so fresh and nutty, and literally the easiest thing you’ve ever made in your whole life. Like, the entirety of your life.
But, while that incredibly simple microwave popcorn really is scrumptious in all its whole-grain glory, sometimes you might want to kick it up a notch. It could start with a little sprinkle of salt … but then maybe you want to kick it up another notch! Mmmmmmm … we get it!
We’d actually started brainstorming some really great recipes for popcorn seasonings …
But then, sadly, three of our four kiddos got braces. (You see the problem already, don’t you?) Yeah – orthodontics kinda take all the fun out of family popcorn night! Makes testing deeee-licious popcorn toppings in front of kids who can’t have any feel like a cruel, cruel joke. So, we put our own ideas on hold (for now) …
And what did we do instead???
Well, we turned to some of the most amazing bloggers out there in the ‘sphere, and are giddy-excited to share the very best popcorn seasonings, toppings, flavor combos and mix-ins we could find!
Oh … and … these are all healthy, too! You saw that coming, right?
There are thousands (millions! billions!) of popcorn recipes on the web … but most (while they may sound yummy) are just not very healthy things to add to a beautifully, perfectly popped bowl of fluffy, whole-grain goodness (aka popcorn!).
We were searching for delicious AND healthy!
Something a little better for you than movie theater popcorn. (Which, in case you were wondering, is not good for you. A small bag will not only set you back $6, but can also contain more than 600 calories and 40 grams of fat. Yeeeesh.)
We’ve got something way better! Actually, 25 somethings! Our list of healthy popcorn recipes will have you poppin’ every day to the tune of a new flavor!
We were literally cheering on the phone as we discussed these! Oh yes, friends … they’re that good. Cheer worthy.
No matter what you’re craving, we’ve got a flavor combo you’ll love! From recipes that’ll satisfy your sweet-tooth to ideas for when you need something a little salty. And if you just can’t decide between those, we’ve got spunky flavors that are the perfect blend … a little sweet, with a kick!
So, mix away! And hey … happy snacking!!
