Mike Wazowski’s Eye Poppin’ Popcorn Recipes

I was at the thrift store and found this adorable Disney Recipe book called The Magic Kitchen Cookbook– Good Food that’s Fun to Make! I paid just $1 for the book. Here is one of the recipes in the book.  The book is really great for kids because it gives healthy tips, cooking basics, fitness, food, and recipe logs. Each page is beautifully illustrated with the characters we all love. You can find the book on Amazon.

My husband and I made all 3 flavors listed. We liked the Parmesan Ranch and Chocolate Cinnamon the best. The book uses the 100 calorie microwave popcorn bags. I personally air pop my popcorn. Basically for every 5-6 cups of popcorn use 2 TBL of seasoning.

    If I was able to eat sugar…. the Cinnamon Chocolate is the one I would go for.

      Plus, cinnamon is great for lowering blood sugar. My husband and MIL both have diabetes, and I have PCOS, so cinnamon is used a lot in my home.
