Apple Pie Popcorn Snack Mix Recipe

Apple Pie Popcorn Snack Mix. Regular popcorn is so yesterday! Spice it up a bit with our sweet version!

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 no doubt a novelty. Whenever kids have friends over, I can hear them say, “Want to see our popcorn popper!” Apple Pie Popcorn Snack Mix Recipe. Regular popcorn is so yesterday! Spice it up a bit with our sweet version!

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

Consequently, we’ve been eating a lot of it, and so we decided to try different toppings and seasonings.  Of course this one is a keeper! We call it Apple Pie Popcorn, and we usually serve it in round dish.

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.

Good idea to go with a machine if you like to make a lot of popcorn. It’s the healthiest way to go. Your recipe sounds really delicious.

How unique and delicious this looks. I have been trying to eat healthier and provide my family with healthier options and found this healthy way to prepare chips and oh how I love chips. I add herbs and some sea salt and they are tasty.

Cara says:

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.
