Yield 4


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 
  • ½ cup popcorn kernels 
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • ½ cup cheese powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Heat a saucepan over medium/high heat and add coconut oil. 
  2. When the coconut oil is melted, add popcorn kernels to the saucepan and cover. Shake the kernels a few times every minute so that they don’t burn.
  3. The popcorn will begin to pop after 3-5 minutes. Continue to shake the kernels every so often.
  4. Once there is more than 3 seconds in between pops, you know the popcorn is done popping. Transfer the popcorn into a paper bag.
  5. Drizzle melted butter over the popcorn and roll the top of the bag so that no popcorn can escape and shake the bag. 
  6. Open the bag and sprinkle the cheese powder and salt over the popcorn. Roll the top of the bag and shake again. Continue to shake until all the popcorn is covered in cheese powder. 
  7. Enjoy!
