Healthified Pop Tart-Inspired Toaster Pastries
For my Abbie-girl’s 6th birthday she wanted me to make her homemade Pop Tarts. I was excited to do so since I haven’t made them in months, although I only enjoyed the aesthetics of them this time. This is definitely a recipe I don’t keep on hand, but bake only periodically or save for special occasions.
It is funny to think, dare I admit this, that when Jonathan and I first got married in 1999, I started eating Pop Tarts as a part of my lunch when I was teaching high school choir. One package has two Pop Tarts in it. I ate one package of Pop Tarts or Sam’s Choice Toaster Pastries a day for a couple of years, too. The thought now makes me cringe, all the sugar, processed ingredients, empty calories, etc…. So for those of you who are transitioning from processed food to whole food eating, this is a much healthier alternative for you as you move to nourishing foods. I don’t recommend eating them everyday like I did, either:).
