My kids LOVE Poptarts. The only problem is that they are not the healthiest snack item. In addition, there are so many ingredients and things inside my kids can't even pronounce. This is when I went on a hunt for toaster pastry recipes.
Granted they are not very pretty, but they sure were good. There is certainly lots of room for improvement, but it is certainly a good starting point.
Here's what is inside the Kellogg's Pop-Tarts:
Now, here's what's in mine:
- 2 ¼ cup whole-wheat flour, plus extra for rolling out the dough
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup cold, unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- ½ cup water plus ice
- 1 egg beaten with a splash of water
- 7 – 8 tablespoons jam or jelly (I used all fruit spread)
That's it and nothing more!
