Popcorn Recipes

We love popcorn at our house! Maddie thinks it's awesome to watch it pop and even better to eat. We have tried coconut oil and sea salt which we really like. Here are some more recipes for popcorn that I found on the welltellme website. Thought I would pass these along. I am definately going to try them! Mark LOVES cracker jacks and if I can make him a healthier version I'm all for it! Enjoy!

  1. Ohh, neat. I have to try some of those. I'd like us to consume more popcorn around here, but it just needs variety!
