Apple Pie Popcorn Snack Mix

We recently purchased our very first popcorn popper!  We’d been using the “brown bag in the microwave” method (or a dish) for so many years, my kids didn’t even know there was any other way to make popcorn.  The problem was that we would only make popcorn when friends were over, so we’d end up making 4-5 bags worth, and it took so long! Our new popper is such a novelty. Whenever kids have friends over, I can hear them say, “Want to see our popcorn popper!” apple pie snack mix

Popcorn is a healthy snack for kids!  It’s 100% whole grain. It’s high in antioxidants, high in fiber, and low in calories.

Anyway, we’ve been eating a lot of it, and so we decided to try different toppings and seasonings.  This one is a keeper! We call it Apple Pie Popcorn.

LOVE popcorn! I’m usually a purist when it comes to popcorn and just a little butter and salt is perfect for me, but, when I want something a little different, some freshly grated Parmesan on top gives it a great flavor hit. A little goes a long way too.


I have gone through your whole site. Tremendous recipes are presented which I love to make at home. Thank you so much for sharing such nice recipes here.

Love to add whey protein isolate to my morning breakfast.


Maybe I’ll have to invest in a popper. I do the microwave paper bag thing, but the yield isn’t great! We end up re-popping after the first round since there are so many unpopped kernels.
