I searched for this info because I knew I'd seen it here but didn't want to respond because everyone except the op has since died. Kim (Annabelle41415) posted in 2009......
Kim Posted: If you can't eat popcorn because of an ileostomy/colostomy, diverticulitis, or for whatever reason, the following is a good substitution. My son mentioned it yesterday and I had forgotten all about it. You put some butter in the bottom of a pan (or margarine - I use the spray "I can't believe it's not butter" because it has no calories, or anything else). Put some Cheerios in pan so they are lightly coated with the butter/margarine, but not soggy. It take more Cheerios than you think. Fry them until they become crispy and add a little salt to taste (they will become really small when they are done). Yummy they are so good. I could eat the whole box.
If anyone tries it let me know what you think.
With some diverticular pouches, my gastro has not allowed me to eat Popcorn for the last few years. It's sooooooo hard because I love popcorn and used to eat it almost every night. Thanks Kim!
