Autumn Days and 3 Healthy Popcorn Recipes

Healthy Popcorn Recipes. Autumn Days and Popcorn 3 Ways by Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.com

Dear Autumn, every year you subdue me into a false sense of contentment with your perfectly pretty red and golden leaves and that rich blue sunshine as your backdrop. And every year I find myself stealing any chance I can to walk amidst your colourful crunchy leaves and be seduced into planning picnics and daydreaming as I watch your falling leaves flutter their way to earth on a gentle breeze.

For more years than I care to admit I have gone to picnics over the Anzac Day long weekend here in my hometown Canberra, only to find winter had made its cold and windy entrance, and our outdoor plans quickly turn into movies at home where we all share our food on rugs on the lounge room floor.

So this year, dear Autumn, you were not going to ruin another fun get together with the gang. No, No, NO!!! This year, we organised an indoor movie marathon just to show you, and while the chilly wind blew the last of the leaves off the trees outside, we’d be happy as clams savouring on our movie food and lazing on lounges in the warmth.

You can’t have a movie without Popcorn right? So, if you’re like me, it’s your go to snack and ultimate companion for movie marathons. In fact, studies on this delicious, gluten free whole grain have shown that the serotonin produced from eating popcorn makes us relaxed and boosts our mood too. But as healthy as popcorn can be on it’s own, many of the pre packaged varieties are often drenched in salt and butter, or worse, artificially flavoured goop masquerading as butter.

Healthy Popcorn Recipes: Canberra in Autumn. Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.com

So, I give to you 3 healthy popcorn recipes that will definitely be making an encore appearance at future movie marathons.

Coriander, Lime & Black Pepper Popcorn

A squeeze of vitamin C-rich lime, a handful of cholesterol reducing coriander and just two tablespoons of Nuttelex (vegan butter) with flecks of green peeking out among the kernels, it’s healthy, tasty, and pretty!

Healthy Popcorn Recipes: Coriander - Lime Popcorn: Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.com

  • ½ cup unpopped organic popcorn kernels 
  • 2 -3 tbsp vegetable oil / Nuttelex butter for popping 
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp lime juice 
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Step 1: Place a large pot on medium high heat with enough oil/butter to cover the bottom, be sure to keep the lid on the pot (you can tilt it slightly to let the moisture out). Drop a couple of kernels in, once they pop, you’re ready to add the rest and lower the heat to medium low. Add just enough to barely cover the bottom of the pot, put the lid on and wait until they begin to pop. You’ll be able to tell when it’s done when there are about 5 seconds between each pop.

Step 2: Put the popcorn into a bowl, sprinkle with lime juice, fresh coriander and salt and pepper seasoning. Toss to coat.

Dorito Popcorn

Have you ever had a look at the nutrition label on a bag of Doritos? Spoiler alert: It’s fricken terrifying with a lineup of dietary offenses from high sodium levels to indecipherable chemicals. You can get your nacho cheese chip fix with this popcorn instead. It’s vegan and you can identify every item in the ingredient list. And don’t worry, the best part about the original remains intact: yummy, cheesy orange residue to slurp off your fingers at the end.

Healthy Popcorn Recipes: Homemade Dorito Popcorn Recipe (Down). Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.com

  • ½ cup unpopped organic popcorn kernels 
  • 2 -3 tbsp vegetable oil / Nuttelex butter for popping
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or granules 
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder or granules
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder 
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt 

Step 1: Place a large pot on medium high heat with enough oil/butter to cover the bottom, be sure to keep the lid on the pot (you can tilt it slightly to let the moisture out). Drop a couple of kernels in, once they pop, you’re ready to add the rest and lower the heat to medium low. Add just enough to barely cover the bottom of the pot, put the lid on and wait until they begin to pop. You’ll be able to tell when it’s done when there are about 5 seconds between each pop.

Step 2: Combine all spices, and salt in a small bowl.

(Optional ) Step 3: Blend seasonings in a spice grinder to make a fine powder. I prefer the unground spice mix.

Step 4: Sprinkle seasoning over popcorn and toss to coat.

Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Popcorn

I know you’re thinking I must be crazy, but trust me, this food combo is a match  made in heaven. Opposites really do attract. Think bacon and maple syrup on pancakes. Think breakfast for dinner. Think leather and lace. Think Edward and Bella from Twilight. Opposites I’m telling you. Sometimes, they just work!

Healthy Popcorn Recipes: Seasalt & Dark Chocolate Popcorn Recipe. Anna Johnston - www.shenannagans.com

  • ½ cup unpopped organic popcorn kernels
  • 2 -3 tbsp vegetable oil / Nuttelex butter for popping
  • 100g dark chocolate (80%)
  • sea salt to taste

Step 1: Place a large pot on medium high heat with enough oil/butter to cover the bottom, be sure to keep the lid on the pot (you can tilt it slightly to let the moisture out). Drop a couple of kernels in, once they pop, you’re ready to add the rest and lower the heat to medium low. Add just enough to barely cover the bottom of the pot, put the lid on and wait until they begin to pop. You’ll be able to tell when it’s done when there are about 5 seconds between each pop.

Step 2: Using a bar made of 80 percent cocoa, the more cocoa, the more cholesterol-lowering oleic acid.  Roughly chop up the bar.

Step 3: Place the popcorn in a large bowl and immediately scatter the chopped dark chocolate over the warm popcorn and sprinkle with sea salt. Stir to combine. Ready to serve. The end product is the culinary equivalent of “opposites attract,” both in its black-and-white appearance and in its sweet-and-salty taste.

One last thing dear Autumn…. While we didn’t much appreciate the glorious sunshine you turned on for my movie marathon afternoon or that you dialed down the breeze tempting the leaves to dance outside our windows, our movie room came equipped with black out curtains so we had loads of fun anyway.

I’d love to know, what TV series or movie do you recommend I watch at my next movie marathon? And which of the popcorn recipes do you like best?

Oh My Giddy Aunt!!! these look amazing… you will have to excuse me from using nutalex cause this babe, only eats butter preferable cultured of course 🙂
You had me at lime and coriander though…
I did have a thought that the salt and dark chocolate could do with a hint of chilli powder… YUM OH!
Here’s to me and MR N sitting around his fireplace (it doesn’t get cold enough for a fire here on the coast) eating deliciously devious Shenannagans popcorn! Thanks for adding to the romance, that is my life at the moment! 🙂

    Anna - May 20, 2016 Reply

    Haha! You crack me up woman! Love ‘oh my giddy aunt!’ so much. 🙂
    I understand the butter, although I am actually a massive fan of nutalex, it tastes good.
    The lime and coriander won for the readers, but my fave was the salted chocolate, so much tastiness!
    My heart is happy knowing you have found love with Mr N, and I am touched I can assist with adding to your already lovely romance. 🙂

Liz - May 13, 2016 Reply

Popcorn is my crack! I’d go for the Dorito version first, but would be happy to eat a bowl of each 🙂

    Anna - May 16, 2016 Reply

    LOL! You are hilarious Liz. But I kinda agree. 🙂 The Dorito is delicious, especially if you have a bowl of the chocolate one going at the same time. YARM!

mjskitchen - May 12, 2016 Reply

First of all, the pictures of your home town are gorgeous! Beautiful views and colors! Secondly, I’m really conflicted right now – which one do I choose first? The Doritos looks fun, the chocolate is dessert, and the coriander lime is outrageous. What combinations! We eat popcorn at least once a week, so I can’t wait to get home and try one of these. Probably the coriander lime first. 🙂

    Anna - May 12, 2016 Reply

    Why thank you lovely one! Canberra really is a gorgeous city, especially at this time of year when the leaves are turning from green to gold.
    Haha, I say you make a 3 course meal out of it, coriander and lime for entree, dorito for main and chocolate for dessert. 🙂
    Please do let me know what ya think when you try them, I say chocolate is the BEST!

Liz Posmyk - May 11, 2016 Reply

Yummy. Sea salt and chocolate please.

Denise Browning - May 10, 2016 Reply

With these 3 amazing flavors, you made hard to choose only one. Next time I have a family movie day at home, I’ll have to try all 3 to see which one is our favorite. 😉

    Anna - May 11, 2016 Reply

    Seems we had a popcorn kinda week in our households this week huh Denise?! Cant wait to try your Churros flavour.
    Please let me know what you think when you try them. 🙂

Hannah - May 10, 2016 Reply

I can never go past the popcorn and chocolate combo!
Hands down the best movie snack EVER!!!

However the other two recipes sound delicious and I will be trying them out using the popcorn machine a certain somebody gifted my for Christmas 😉

I strongly recommend House of Cards on the Netflix.
I think even a non political junky would love it!

    Anna - May 11, 2016 Reply

    I TOTALLY agree, salt and sweet is one of lifes most wonderful tastes. It was my favourite and inspired by you!
    Let me know what you think of the other 2 flavours when you get to popping all the corn in your fancy machine, glad you like it. 🙂
    Ohhh, excellent suggestion my friend, I got right into season 1, but havent gone back.
    PS: Political nerd alert!!!

Serina aka Ms Frugal Ears - May 9, 2016 Reply

Wow, what a lovely array of recipes. I love popcorn. They are the ultimate frugal party food, much cheaper than chips, and much better for you. I really loved your pepper, lime and coriander recipe.

    Anna - May 10, 2016 Reply

    Meeeee too Serina! Its so dang delicious, especially when you add extra toppings. The coriander lime combo seemed to be the most popular, please let me know what you think if you give it a go. 🙂

Paola - May 6, 2016 Reply

The first option sounds so different and I would so try it out!

Samantha - PlanetBakeLife - May 5, 2016 Reply

I am loving the idea of the dark chocolate and popcorn combo! Sounds heavenly. I do like a mix of sweet and savoury and this looks like it’ll hit the spot nicely.

    Anna - May 5, 2016 Reply

    That was my favourite of the 3 too Samantha! 🙂 Like you, I think the sweet and savory is a great combo. 🙂

Evelyne CulturEatz - May 5, 2016 Reply

Wow these popcorns look awesome. I am not a huge popcorn fan, definitely not the ones in movie theaters, but these recipes I would be happy to try and am sure I would enjoy. one and three are my faves!

    Anna - May 5, 2016 Reply

    When it comes to the movie theatre popcorn, you buy a giant bag of Maltesers and drop them into the bucket too, it then becomes a semi fancy feast, with a hint of surprise too. 🙂
    Please do let me know what you think if you make them Evelyne.

Jean | Holy Smithereens - May 4, 2016 Reply

OMG, I can imagine myself going through bowls of the Doritos popcorn! Such creative flavours! 🙂

    Anna - May 5, 2016 Reply

    So much deliciousness Jean, if you make the dorito one, be sure to make the chocolate one too, it is the ultimate feast of flavours. 🙂

Agnes - May 4, 2016 Reply

That popcorn looks absolutely delish!

Krista Bjorn - May 4, 2016 Reply

The Autumn pics make me so happy, Anna. Such gorgeous colors and cozy feeling. Popcorn is my favorite snack food ever, and your toppings are fantastic! 🙂

    Anna - May 5, 2016 Reply

    They really are beautiful colours, this city is absolutely stunning this time of year, I wish it were warmer is all. 🙂
    Oh lovely, I do hope you make these delicious popcorn recipes next time you get your snack on.

Hotly Spiced - May 3, 2016 Reply

Your autumn photos are gorgeous – you’ve captured the colours really well. I love all your popcorn flavours but I’m quite sure the chocolate would be my favourite. I will NEVER eat another Dorito! xx

    Anna - May 4, 2016 Reply

    You were in Canberra recently, I am sure you saw how easy it is to capture the prettiness of this city?! 🙂
    The popcorn is so dang delicious, and agreed, the chocolate one was a fave this end too.
    Haha. Good woman, dorito is the devil!

Ala - May 3, 2016 Reply

OHHHH, I’m sitting here in the office starving right now and these all look SO good. Good on you to do the movie marathon idea! You can never tell with that tricky weather. That reminds me that I need to host one again next month, if at all possible 🙂

    Anna - May 3, 2016 Reply

    I just started a new job so wowed the bajinkas outta my new colleagues with the seasalt and choc poppy. Seriously quick and tasty too. 🙂 FUN to your movie night, I bet that’s a tasty affair!

Sarah - May 3, 2016 Reply

The coriander lime popcorn is my favorite…… although chocolate come in as a close second. This looks freaking awesome. And hopefully you can enjoy the fall a little bit without it raining too much!

    Anna - May 3, 2016 Reply

    Please do let me know if you make some of the fancy popcorn. 🙂 And yes, all the yes to a rain free Autumn.

Pamela @ BFG - May 3, 2016 Reply

I am loving everything about Coriander, Lime & Black Pepper Popcorn! I’m a big lime fan so I love seeing unique recipes with it! Thanks for the happy snacking ahead!

Jen Sotolongo - May 2, 2016 Reply

This looks like so much fun! I knew that you could dress up popcorn, but I never thought to add these combinations, especially coriander or chocolate!

Amanda - May 2, 2016 Reply

I really love the coriander, lime, and black pepper variation, especially for Cinco de Mayo this week. Though, the sea salt and dark chocolate sounds perfectly divine, too! What great ways to dress up popcorn.

    Anna - May 3, 2016 Reply

    PERFECT for Cinco de Mayo, although one doesn’t really need an excuse to eat popcorn. 🙂 Happy week ahead.

Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs - May 2, 2016 Reply

What stunning photos. Autumn is my favourite season and you’ve captured why perfectly. I’m a huge popcorn fan but I always just plump for salty! I’ve have to give some of yours a try.

    Anna - May 3, 2016 Reply

    Canberra is stunning this time of year, seriously beautiful with all the orange, gold and red. If you love the salty version, the Dorito is delicious.

Elissa - May 2, 2016 Reply

I haven’t made popcorn for years but used to make it all the time when my kids were younger. Now they are old enough they would appreciate these grown up flavours! I’ve had success with cooking the popcorn in a paper bag in the microwave, so I might do that then add the seasonings.

    Anna - May 2, 2016 Reply

    Popcorn is the go to snack in my household, especially when loaded with these yummy flavours. 🙂 I bet your kids will love the ‘adult’ flavours a whole bunch too.
    Ooooh, your paper bag microwave cook sounds interesting, fun too. Will contact you for more details.

Eileen | The Food Avenue - May 2, 2016 Reply

Oh wow, who knew you could eat popcorn more than one way, haha. I’m definitely trying one or more of these next movie night 🙂

    Anna - May 2, 2016 Reply

    LOL! I know right? Was fun making so much popcorn, and zero guilt too because its practically health food. 🙂 Please do let me know which flavour you like best.

Jem @ Lost in Utensils - May 2, 2016 Reply

Fantastic healthy snack choices Anna. Reminded me of making popcorn again, I often forget about how good it can be (especially with flavours like this). The weather is tricking all of us this year….who knows what we’re going to get. 30 degrees in Brissie today 🙁

    Anna - May 2, 2016 Reply

    Oh yeah, these popcorn flavours are crazy delicious, so many excellent tastes, especially when you have all 3 flavours going at the same time. 🙂
    WHAT…. 30 degrees, that is crazy. It was about 9 degrees when I left for work this morning. Not fair.

Cooooooome on, are you serious? WoWWWWWWWWWW.
Amazing. You are amazing & I appreciate you, Anna! xxx

    Sea salt and dark chocolate popcorn is my absolute favourite too. Im talking hide the bowl kinda good. 🙂
    Teehee, totes let me know what you think when you try it?
    You are pretty darn amazing too my beautiful friend, and I appreciate you right back.
    Big hugs and loves. xo

popcorn is such a healthy snack, nice to have these creative ways to enjoy it!

Brenda Tolentino - May 1, 2016 Reply

I would definitely try all three recipes but if I had to choose one favorite, it would have to be with the coriander, this is genius. I adore coriander and it must be so tasty with hot popcorn!

    Anna - May 2, 2016 Reply

    The coriander, lime and pepper popcorn seems to be winning the poppy race in population, it really is delicious, leaves a refreshing after taste, and feels totally healthy too. Hope you enjoy if you make them. 🙂

Elizabeth @ Compass & Fork - May 1, 2016 Reply

I love your creativity with popcorn. I like mine straight with just butter, but I could use the coriander lime one on some homemade potato chips- I think it would be a great combo.

    Anna - May 2, 2016 Reply

    Thanks Elizabeth, and sometimes I totally agree re popcorn doused in butter and lightly salted. Its a classic!
    Oooooh… excellent idea to try the flavours on potato chips, sounds yumbo!

Elizabeth - May 1, 2016 Reply

Such beautiful scenery photographs and those popcorn recipes are AMAZING! Yum!

    Anna - May 2, 2016 Reply

    Yes, Canberra at this time of year is incredible, the colours are so pretty, so I am pleased you enjoyed. And thanks heaps, the popcorn was so dang good, especially having all 3 flavours available at the same time. It was like having entree, main and dessert all in one. 🙂

Gourmet Getaways - May 1, 2016 Reply

What a great afternoon! Lucky you had block out curtains though. I would love to try the lime popcorn, it sounds fabulous.

The series I’m addicted to at the moment is Banchee! I love it!
Thanks for sharing

    It was absolutely perfect Julie! Love me a movie marathon afternoon, especially when it is loaded with much popcorn tastiness.
    Banchee, will ask the google about this series, thanks for the recommendation. And yes, the lime & coriander popcorn seems to be the most popular.

Sabrina - May 1, 2016 Reply

Love these popcorn flavors!! I could go for some coriander-lime popcorn now!

Prateek - May 1, 2016 Reply

I am guilty of loving Doritos, but you are right they are a nutrition nightmare , this is a much healthier alternative. I haven’t tried sea salt and dark chocolate combo in popcorn, that seems quite unique have had sea salt and caramel but this sounds delicious! Love all three recipes and have bookmarked them for the next movie night!

    Anna - May 1, 2016 Reply

    Nutritional nightmare indeed Prateek, but not the popcorn version… this dorito mix leaves the most yummy after taste too. AND… if you have the salted chocolate mix going at the same time, you can really do the salt and sweet combo. So much yum! Please do let me know what you think of the recipes. 🙂

Bam's Kitchen - April 30, 2016 Reply

Autumn is absolutely my favorite time of the year and your landscape photos are just beautiful. I hope I don’t have to pick one popcorn as I know I would love all 3. However the coriander, lime in black pepper is really calling my name. Dang that sounds awesome and great to curl up with a good movie. Have a super weekend!

    Anna - May 1, 2016 Reply

    Thanks Bobbi, Canberra at this time of year really is very pretty, wish it could be warm and offer the gorgeous colours and beautiful scenery too.
    Hahaha… I say, don’t pick and make all 3 flavours at the same time. My fave was the salt & chocolate combo, but the lime and coriander is lovely and refreshing too.
    Hope your weekend is amazing too. 🙂

Laura Lynch - April 30, 2016 Reply

Alright you caught me. I’m a popcorn addict. I would eat it every day if I thought it was acceptable. I love the idea of trying different combinations of flavor. I’m starting with the coriander and black pepper one tonight.

    Anna - April 30, 2016 Reply

    Brilliant! And from one popcorn addict to another, it is legit acceptable to eat it every day, especially if you are making it yourself. Add different flavours and you have a meal. Well that’s my story and Im sticking to it. 🙂

Glamorous Glutton - April 29, 2016 Reply

These flavours sound great and so much more original than the bought stuff. GG

Tim UrbanDuniya - April 29, 2016 Reply

OMG these look SOOOO good! And those pictures of Canberra… my friend, you really do live in a lovely part of the world 🙂

As for favourite recipe – I really want some of the coriander, lime and pepper popcorn in my mouth RIGHT NOW… but I <3 your reasoning behind why opposites attract. It's true!!

TV series to start watching – Real Housewives of Melbourne. Train wreck TV – and it has me in hysterics (for all the wrong reasons 😛 )

    Anna - April 30, 2016 Reply

    Yeah, Canberra sure does put on a tops show this time of year, I only wish that it was slightly warmer. When ya coming back for a visit?

    The coriander, lime and pepper is ace, so rad, super delicious. Go easy on the lime juice, it took a few trials before getting the amount of juice right, lots of soggy popcorn.

    Hahaha… Um whaaat? Real Housewives of Melbourne. No way, surely not. Mind blown at your suggestion. I guess I have to have a look now, especially if hysterics are induced.

Autumn is my favourite season… and these are such lovely photos of it!

Die Hard. Die Hard is good to marathon during every season (…but only the first three! :P).

    It certainly is a colourful and pretty season, I just wish that it was slightly warmer. 🙂
    Hahaha… thank you for the movie recommendation, although not sure it is a genre I watch. Perhaps if I get desperate. Lol!

Mandy - April 28, 2016 Reply

Oh yeah baby – I am in on all of these popcorn treats! What brilliant ideas you clever girl although doesn’t the lime juice make some of the kernels a wee bit soggy? My Pete pulls the strangest faces when he gets a soggy kernel – haa haa. Seriously though hon, what winners – will definitely be jazzing up my salted poppies ASAP!
Have a beautiful day sweet Anna and love and hugs from what might be our last warm Autumn day here!
🙂 Mandy xoxoxo

    Anna - April 30, 2016 Reply

    Yes, you gotta go light on with the lime juice, I made 3 batches before I got the right ratio, much soggy popcorn in my kitchen last week. And the worst thing is I couldn’t do anything with it. Sigh! Be sure to let me know what you think of the flavours. My fave is a combo of the dorito, followed by the chocolate and back to the dorito. Its the ultimate salt and sweet combo.

    Giant big squishy hugs headed across the oceans, enjoy the last of your warm Autumn days, we are hanging on to them this end too. xoxox

Mabel Kwong - April 28, 2016 Reply

My gosh, Anna big sis. These are three amazing popcorn recipes. When I saw them on your Instagram, my eyes nearly popped out of my head. They simply look so good and you take popcorn making to a whole new level! The Dorito popcorn (minus the chilli) certainly caught my eye here. I love cheese supreme Doritos but yes, they are so bad and it is great that you can come up with a similar tasting substitute 🙂

I’m actually not a huge fan of movies or TV series. Just not into it 😀 But when I was younger I really liked watching Prison Break, Friends, Buffy, Charmed and The Simpsons. I also enjoyed watching Adam Sandler movies. Hope you are enjoying autumn this year (it is still warm here in Melbourne) and lots of hugs your way xxoo

    Anna - April 30, 2016 Reply

    Thanks little sis, you really are so encouraging and supportive. I appreciate you so much! 🙂

    The dorito popcorn is super delicious, although might be a little bit bitey for your chilli sensitive senses, if you put in a quarter of the chilli and cayenne in, I reckon you would be okay. Have the chocolate one on standby just in case. I found the combination of both those flavours really yummy.

    I just finished rewatching Friends, what a fantastic series that is, and Charmed, wow, now that is going back a bit. Glad you are still in warmth down your way, soak up some for me too. Biggest, warmest hugs headed your way. Mwah. xoxo

    HOLY MOLY Tandy! Now that sounds crazy delicious. Although rather then the bacon fat, I have been wanting to try a smoked oil, same flavours, no bacon. Love this combination tho. Sounds amazing. 🙂

I’ve never considered making popcorn snazzy, I love the sound of the chocolate one.

Autumn is my favorite season! And I love rainy days when I can stay indoors and cook. Or make popcorn and watch a movie. Or three. Fun post — thanks.

    I totally agree about the rainy days that mean staying inside and cooking, orrrrr, popping corn and movie watching too. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed John.
