Cooking With Kids Thursday: Homemade Poptarts!

I love Poptarts.  I grew up eating them for breakfast almost every morning, but I just can’t bring myself to feed them to my children.  They are just so high in sugar, among other things, and I like to send my kids out the door in the morning with something a bit more substantial.  I came across these homemade poptarts on pinterest and I can’t wait to try them out.  I’m thinking we could make a bunch over the weekend and then they would be good to go all week long.  My kids will love getting to pick/make their own fillings.  I also might not use the glaze on top.  Thanks Undressed Skeleton!

Here’s what you need to make these:

Pastry Dough:

  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup White Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Baking Stevia
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

  • 2 Cups Powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Meringue Powder
  • 4 Tbsp Water
  • Sprinkles of course!


  • Whatever you wish.  Follow the tutorial link for 12 filling suggestions.
