Healthy Cheesy Popcorn Recipe

Healthy Cheesy Popcorn Recipe

Who doesn’t LOVE good ‘ol popcorn?!

Try this savoury, and crunch-satisfying snack recipe!

But… this cheesy popcorn doesn’t actually have any cheese in it. Instead the nutritional yeast will give you loads of nutrients and the flavor of cheese. Plus, the avocado or coconut oil will be the boost of healthy fats you need.

I can’t wait for you to give this recipe a try.


  • 1 Tbsp avocado or coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup organic, non-GMO popping corn

  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (nooch!)

  • pinch of sea salt or Himalayan pink salt


  1. Add healthy oil to large saucepan and let sit over medium heat until just bubbling, but do not let smoke!

  2. Add popcorn kernels, shake pan gently, then cover with a lid.

  3. When the kernels begin to pop, shake pan every 10 seconds until the popping slows. When there are 3 seconds between pops, remove from heat.

  4. Transfer popcorn to serving bowl, toss with nutritional yeast and sea salt, and enjoy immediately.


 - Recipe can be doubled

- Popcorn does not keep well so it’s best enjoyed all at once ;)
