Who doesn’t love snacking on popcorn? A surprisingly healthy and addicting snack, popcorn is much better for you then chips, doritos or any other kind of convenience snack available. The best part of all this? Making instant pot popcorn is probably the easiest ‘from scratch snack’ you’ll ever make at home, and you can make as much, (or as little) as you want.
Most folks may not know it, but homemade popcorn is a surprisingly cheap snack to make. It’s even cheaper then buying those microwave popcorn bags, (which are horrible for your health by the way) and you can flavor the popcorn however you like! In the recipe below, I’ll walk you through making your own popcorn in an Instant Pot, and six popular seasonings to keep things interesting! If you don’t have an Instant Pot i’ll be including instructions for stove top popping in the recipe card at the bottom.
