  • Air Fryer
  • Popcorn Kernels


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or any oil you prefer
  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels white or yellow
  • optional toppings see post above for suggestions


  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
  • Line air fryer basket or try with foil.
  • Place popcorn kernels onto foil. Drizzle with oil. Toss to coat.
  • Place into preheated air fryer and air fry for 8 minutes or until most kernels have popped.
  • Remove from the air fryer (so it's not overdone!), and top as you would like. We like to drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with a touch of salt. See the post above for more topping suggestions. Enjoy!
