If you’re like me and you often go to the movies just for the popcorn, you’ll be happy to know that popcorn can be a healthy snack. Crunchy, salty, sweet, and buttery, popcorn in all its forms is the classic happy food. You may also be delighted to know that popcorn has a robust nutritional profile, with numerous vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols, as well as tons of fiber.

However, popcorn is often made unhealthy, with tons of salt and butter (or buttery flavored oil) poured on. Try reading the labels of one of those giant bags of popcorn sold in stores, or the warnings about the linings of microwave popcorn.

I’m here to say that there is a better way. I’ve gathered a list of healthy popcorn recipes that create the popcorn flavors we love without the bad stuff we don’t want. So, add these healthy recipes to your stash of fast-food craving hacks and no-bake healthy dessert recipes.

1. Caramel Apple Popcorn

The best snacks are salty and sweet at the same time, and this Caramel Apple Popcorn recipe doesn’t disappoint in either department. Dried apples and cinnamon give you a burst of comfort all year long.

2. Vanilla Almond Popcorn

You can’t go wrong when you combine three of the best flavors all in one snack. This Vanilla Almond Popcorn recipe uses dates as a sweetener and almonds for protein, making it a great travel snack for people on the go. And, who isn’t on the go these days.

3. Nacho Cheese Popcorn

Instead of reaching for a bag of nacho-flavored chips, try this delicious Nacho Cheese Popcorn recipe. Crunchy, cheesy, salty – what more could you ask for in popcorn? Did you say vegan and dairy-free? Yep, we got you on that one, too.

4. Skinny Buttered Popcorn

Fancy popcorn recipes aside, sometimes nothing will do except old-fashioned buttered popcorn. This Skinny Buttered Popcorn recipe has the buttery flavor you crave without the calories you are trying to avoid. And it’s easy, just three ingredients. By using a spray bottle to spritz the popcorn with butter, you get all of the flavors without the fat.

5. Dark Chocolate Popcorn with Sea Salt

If you are in the mood for something dark and chocolatey, with a touch of sea salt, this is your recipe. Almonds, pumpkin seeds, and popcorn are enrobed in chocolate and seasoned with sea salt and rosemary.

6. Chili-Lime Popcorn

Instead of drenching popcorn in butter, if you want a savory take on this nutritious snack, try this Chili-Lime Popcorn recipe. Chili, cumin, and lime zest combine to make the perfect taste sensation. It’s great for dipping in salsa or queso. If you’ve never dipped popcorn before, give it a go, I think you’ll be surprised at the deliciousness.

So, the next time you want a healthier snack, popup a big batch and see what’s in your fridge. You’ll be creating yummy movie night snacks with all of the flavor and less of the fat in no time.
