Popcorn is absolutely my snack addiction. I can basically finish an entire bag of any kind of popcorn in one sitting… who am I?! I’m talking sweet and salty popcorn, plain salted popcorn and my all time favorite cheesy popcorn. Ya feel me?
Anyways, I wanted to make my own little popcorn snack mix that’s perfect for snacking on when I pay attention to the serving size. Chia seeds and peptias add some healthy fats and remember popcorn is a whole grain! Try this out for your next road trip or Netflix binge.
P.S. SkinnyPop is looking to share some new, healthy recipes, so be sure to keep an eye out in case this recipe gets featured on one of their summer recipe cards. Fingers crossed!
