Homemade Pop Tarts


Homemade Healthy Poptarts

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup melted butter
1 cup plain yogurt
About 5 ounces of 100% fruit jelly or jam – any flavor you like

Knead the dough just a little bit to make it nice and workable. Roll out the dough on a large, well floured surface. Use a knife to cut the dough into the desired poptart size you would like. I tried to cut mine into “normal” poptart sizes. But nothing I ever do is very normal so I came out with a nice variety of sizes.

Place about a 1/2 teaspoon of jelly on 1/2 of the dough rectangles (squares?).
Spread the jelly around, leaving the edges free.

Find a second square or rectangle  that matches closely
with each jellied one. Place it on top and use a fork to seal the edges.

Lay each poptart in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Bake in a 350° oven for about 25 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.

This recipe makes around 15-20 poptarts, depending on how big you make them.

Making them ahead of time and then putting them in our toaster oven to re-heat makes for a very fast and popular breakfast! These CAN be frozen as well. Bake them first, let them cool and the freeze until you’re ready to re-heat and eat!

This recipe here is one I found on a lovely website called Heavenly Homemaker. She has so many awesome recipes. The pictures are from her site too. I tried taking pics but they just didn’t turn out very well.

Hope you enjoy!
