Calories 82kcal


  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil extra virgin


  • salt
  • butter
  • seasoning


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once preheated, cover the basket of the air fryer with a layer of foil. Do not cover the sides of the basket.
  • Add the olive oil and the popcorn to the foil. Spread the kernels into an even layer, and coat with the oil.
  • Cook the popcorn for 5-7 minutes. Listen for the kernels popping and remove the basket once the kernels have all popped.


  1. Make sure to keep the kernels in a single layer over the foil. If you add too many kernels they will not pop evenly and the popcorn can brown or burn. 
  2. Preheat the air fryer before cooking the popcorn. 
  3. Listen for the kernels to stop popping. Remove the cooked popcorn if needed and cook the remaining kernels in 1-minute increments or until popcorn is cooked.
  4. Season the cooked popcorn with salt, butter, and your favorite seasonings.
