The outer crust is made with oats and it gave a nice crunchy effect to the popcorn, kids will love it for sure..You can make a big batch of them and just before frying you can freeze them in a tray, once they are frozen, collect them in a container and stick in the freezer. This way you can fry them whenever you need them..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
