Garlic Ranch Popcorn

This homemade Garlic Ranch Popcorn is a refreshing spin on a classic snack. Popcorn with coconut oil and sea salt is one of my favorite things to munch on. If I close my eyes and use my imagination it’s almost like I’m eating Cool Ranch Doritos. Okay, not quite, but it’s yummy!

This is a perfect recipe to make for all the popcorn lovers out there. It’s such a simple and healthy spin on such a beloved snack. I’m always looking for interesting ways to spice up the “ordinary” snack and this is a way I did.

I love gathering around with the kiddos on the weekends to watch movies. Popcorn with a delicious smoothie is always on the menu. The possibilities are endless on ways to dress up your popcorn. I was experimenting with different ways to “spice” up my popcorn and came up with this.

Garlic Ranch Popcorn

Print Recipe


  • 2 tsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tsp Minced Onion
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Parsley
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup Non-GMO Popcorn
  • 1/2 cup Coconut oil melted


  • 1. Add nutritional yeast, minced onion, garlic powder, parsley and salt to a mortar, spice grinder, food processor, or blender and process. I like to use my mortar and pestle for this.
  • 2. Pop popcorn kernels in an air popper.
  • 3. Coat popcorn with melted coconut oil and sprinkle with seasoning.
Servings: 4


  1. Curious why you did not use the Instant Pot? I have never used it for popping corn but I am told that it can be done.

  2. What brand of nutritional yeast do you use if you have the MTHFR gene ? I found out 2 weeks ago that I do have it and didn’t realize that folic acid was in the bragg’s brand. I’m just learning about.

  3. 5 stars
    So, this was amazing! I’m a ranch lover and was saving this recipe in my phone tabs for when a salty crunchy craving hit, it did not disappoint. I shared with my sister in law and she, a ranch hater(I know, bizarre), loved it too! It’s just ranchy enough and pairs great with the coconut oil. Total winner!
