This was really easy to put together and made for a nice snack. Actually, I made this for a movie I was watchinh last night, and it was like being in a movie theater.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pop the popcorn on the stove or skillet. DO NOT air pop.
  2. Pour into a large bowl that you can seal and let the popcorn cool.
  3. Add pineapple, raisins, almonds, and sunflower seeds to popcorn. Stir thoroughly.
  4. While popcorn is cooling, melt butter and mix in brown sugar and cinnamon to taste.
  5. Boil for 1 minute only.
  6. Remove from heat and add flax seed and vanilla; mix well.
  7. Pour over the popcorn mixture and use a rubber spatula to mix from the bottom up, like folding in ingredients. The seeds tend to fall to the bottom.
  8. Let dry and enjoy. Makes a big bowl.
