Low Cal-No Oil Microwave Popcorn (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Updated on March 10, 2015

Eco, Quick, Easy & Healthy Home-Made Popcorn

I always thought it was the oil or butter inside the microwave popcorn bags that made it pop.

I was surprised to find that it's actually the heat inside the closed bag that turns kernels into fluffy, crunchy goodness.

Many medical reports have stated that the chemicals coated onto the inside of microwave popcorn bags are not the healthiest choice for anyone who is looking to enjoy a crunchy treat.

Now you can make your own microwave popcorn without all of the fat, salt and possible carcinogens that could be lurking in your store bought microwave popcorn bags.

It's so easy you'll be popping all year long with 52 Weekends in a year to enjoy it. You can have it ready in a flash for a party and make it fancy with colored popping corn kernels!

Gifting is also an option if you want to make that fancy popcorn and just tie a ribbon around the top of the paper lunch bag and place a home-made label on it as a gift tag. You can make it spicy, savory or sweet depending on what your loved ones like.

This popular healthy snack can be your go to treat for those last minute movie nights. "Children of The Corn" anyone? ;)
