Homemade Poptarts – Easy, Fast, and Healthier

At first, I thought making Homemade Poptarts would be a daunting task.  Between making the fillings, rolling out the dough, and getting them in the oven without breaking them apart, I was leary that it would be an easy task.  But then I had a thought: what about simple fillings of fruit, starch, and sugar, and a crust out of the dairy case?  The resulting Homemade Poptarts were a success!

Fresh Fruits for Homemade Poptarts

I made my Homemade Poptarts with peaches and raspberries, but you can make any fruit that you enjoy, that has a lower water content.  Things like melons will just become a soggy mess.  Blueberries, apples, pears, and apricots all make wonderful fillings.  Peel and chop them fine for the best Homemade Poptarts, and mix fruits if you like for a great combination.  Or, if you aren’t the fruity Homemade Poptart type, try marshmallows and chocolate, or brown sugar and cinnamon.  Yum!

  1. Thanks, have to try very soon

  2. Those look delicious and I love that they involve premade crust! Why the rice flour? Could you use regular flour? Or cornstarch? And have you experimented with freezing these? Would you cook them and then freeze and reheat or freeze raw and then cook?

    • jackie cady says

      I was wondering about the flour also, I don’t like rice flour….. they would probably freeze good if you did them individual or with wax/parchment paper inbetween…. and use FREEZER bags……

  3. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening.

    I appreciate you finding the time and energy
    to put this informative article together. I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
