Stovetop Popcorn with Coconut Oil and Sea Salt

Stovetop Popcorn with Coconut Oil and Sea Salt is a great afternoon snack or great for movie night. Easy to make and made with real food.


What kind of oil is best for stovetop popcorn? 

While you can use just can use any oil with a high smoke point for making popcorn on the stove, I prefer coconut oil because of the health benefits. 

What are the health benefits of coconut oil?

Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal properties. It may promoted healthy weight loss. It’s also a great source of antioxidants.

What are the health benefits of seas salt?

Sea salt helps keep you hydrated, is great for your skin, prevents muscle cramps, improves digestion, balances electrolytes, and helps balance blood pressure.

Why is sea salt better for you than table salt?

Sea salt retains more nutrients than table salt. It has minerals like magnesium, potassium, and calcium. These minerals add flavor and color.

Stovetop Popcorn with Coconut Oil and Sea Salt
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 3 quart pot with lid
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, refined
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • sea salt


  1. Add coconut oil to pot, turn on medium and allow to melt. Add two kernels of popcorn to the pot. 
  2. Once both pop, add the rest of the popcorn to pot with some sea salt and cover. (I didn't measure, just what I thought looked good. You can always add more afterward.) 
  3. Once the popping slows down (2-3 pop per second), remove from heat. Enjoy

That looks good! I haven't tried my hand at stovetop popcorn, but my mother used to do this as a treat when we were small. I'll have to try it!
