  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 c popcorn kernels
  • salt


  • Set Instant Pot to saute, more (or high) setting. 
  • Add coconut oil and butter and allow to melt completely and start to sizzle (important step - watch video in this post for an example). 
  • Add popcorn kernels and stir so all kernels are coated with oil. 
  • Place glass lid on top and hold, popcorn will begin popping in about 2-3 minutes, turn off when 2/3 of kernels have popped and they will continue to pop but not burn. 
  • Carefully remove lid. Pour out of pot when done so they don't continue to cook. Salt and you're done!
