Paper Bag Popcorn has totally changed my life! That may sound a bit dramatic, but when I think back to how much money I’ve spent over the years on microwave popcorn that comes only 3 packs to a box I’m sure it would be a hefty number.

I grew up with a mother who had a big bowl of popcorn waiting for my brother and I after school every day as our snack while we did homework and watch TV. To this day popcorn is one of my favorite snack foods no matter the time of day. While I love popcorn made in a pot over the stove, there are days I don’t have the time and resist cleaning yet another pot, so I reach for the pre-packaged variety in the box.

My husband, who I lovingly refer to as the food police came across an article pointing out the fact that microwave popcorn bags have BPA in the lining of the microwave bags, so I started making this version. This paper bag popcorn recipe couldn’t be any easier to make and is really fun too. Watch this paper bag popcorn video to learn my quick tips for popcorn perfection.

Every bag you pop costs just pennies, you can use organic popcorn kernels to make it GMO free and it takes no extra hydrogenated oils. The best part for me, though, is that there’s no clean up. Just pop it up, serve your fluffy popcorn in a paper bag, shake in any topping you love like nutritional yeast, butter or honey and cinnamon and you’re ready to go!

    This recipe has changed my life, also!! My youngest daughter loves popcorn, but we don’t do microwave popcorn, so we always have to get out the Whirley Pop to make it on the stove. No more!!! Now she can have it whenever she wants! Great for after school snack!! Thank you!!!!

    Hi! I’ve used this idea tons of time, for exactly the reasons you mentioned, then came across some article somewhere that standard lunch bags (what I’ve used) are not food safe and/or the glue isn’t. I felt defeated. What kinds of paper sacks do you use? Thanks!
