Brown Bag Popcorn is a much tastier and healthier alternative to store bought microwave popcorn. Perfect when topped with coconut oil, butter, or parmesan cheese!
I wanted to share a delicious, and easy, snack that I’ve started making recently. Brown bag microwave popcorn. Basically, it’s a healthier version of store bought, microwave popcorn. I always loved store bought microwave popcorn until I read that it was bad for you, and it scared me away. Stove top is always going to be best, but if you only have two minutes, this easy microwave brown bag popcorn is great!
I always like to put about 1-2 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil on my popcorn, parmesan cheese, and chili powder…however, you can top it however you want. I even like it straight out of the microwave. I think it tastes far better than the store bought kind, it’s a low calorie snack (as long as you aren’t slathering it in butter!)
