Salty, Savory, and a Guaranteed Family-Favorite!
When you have a case of the munchies, hitting the drive-through or diving into a bag of chips can seem incredibly tempting. But unfortunately, these solutions merely add empty calories to your daily intake. Lucky for you, you can satisfy your late-night cravings with something just as delicious, and healthy as well.
Our lightly salted skillet popcorn delivers that crunchy, craveable character you simply can’t resist. Conventional butter-laden popcorn you’d get at the ballpark or movie theater carries a less than desirable amount of fat and sodium. With our skillet popcorn, we’ve given the classic treat a skinny makeover your waistline will certainly appreciate.
Our Skillet Popcorn Beats the Rest
Here, our recipe ditches the butter and hydrogenated oils, calling for just a tablespoon of olive oil instead. This superfood draws out incredible flavor from the kernels, and makes a much healthier alternative. And with just 70 calories a serving, you can munch away on this tasty snack, without the guilt!
Along with its low-calorie content, air-popped popcorn carries fiber, which can ward off cravings. Not to mention, air popped popcorn ditches the harmful chemicals and flavorings that usually make an appearance in microwave popcorn.
How to Make Skillet Popcorn
Anyone can make this foolproof snack! First, add olive oil to your skillet and cook on medium heat. Once hot, add the kernels and place the lid on the skillet. Keep the lid on the skillet as kernels begin to pop, and shake the skillet periodically. Once popping slows down, remove the lid and sprinkle sea salt on top. Bon appétit!
As a bonus, this 3-ingredient savory snack makes a budget-friendly option as well. Popcorn kernels, olive oil, and sea salt are all you need to whip up this delicious popcorn recipe on a moment’s notice. So when it comes to guilt-free snacks, this one certainly tops the charts. We hope you enjoy!
