I think our Tuesday could use a sweet, buttery pop-tart.
Who’s with me?
Pretty sure it’s no secret that here on Half Baked Harvest we love a good homemade pop-tart. Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we? First up was the most perfect (literally) homemade chocolate fudge pop-tarts (I think I need to reshoot these photos…mainly because I want an excuse to bake these up again). Then I made these fun cinnamon sugar nutella swirled pumpkin pie pop-tarts. Then, I mean, as if those two were not enough, I made these chocolate peanut butter fudge pop-tarts. So yes, I like my homemade pop-tarts, and apparently I like them really chocolately…understandably so.
Today’s pop-tart has nothing to do with chocolate and everything to do with strawberries!! Ahhh oops, shoot, I guess I did use a little white chocolate, huh?
Hmmmm…does that count as chocolate? Not in my book, but I guess it is chocolate. Oh well, I think you guys get what I am saying. These are mainly fruit filled pop-tarts and I love them.
Spring is quickly approaching and I am really starting to crave bright spring colors, flavors…and flowers. Anyone else love spring flowers? I have always loved a beautiful floral arrangement, but around here the best we get are roses, tulips and hydrangea. I’m longing for those gorgeous peonies I see all over Pinterest. If you guys follow my FLOWERS board, you can get a pretty good idea of what I love. Sadly I can’t find any of those flowers up here in the mountains. Maybe I can get my brother Kai, who lives in LA, to bring some back? Right…that’s never going to happen.
Question: what’s your favorite spring flower?
Anyway! Pop-tarts! I know it’s not quite strawberry season yet, but I got a little too excited the other day when I saw some deep red strawberries in the grocery store. I have been wanting to make homemade strawberries pop-tarts for the longest time, so I decided to just go for it.
Only me being me, I had to throw in another fun flavor…i.e white chocolate!
Originally, I wanted these to be super healthy pop-tarts that we could eat every morning and not feel a sugar high off of…but after rounds and rounds of testing, I decided I would go for a healthy…ish pop-tart instead. Meaning I might not eat these every single day, but more as a fun every so often breakfast!
Balance and moderation, right? Yup, yup.
The crust is a hearty mix of white whole wheat flour, oats and butter, got to have the butter! I love that this crust is so simple, yet so perfect. It’s soft, buttery, and flakey. All the things I love.
As for the filling? I decided to do a combo of strawberries, raspberries, and honey. The honey paired with the strawberries is my favorite. I will never, ever tire of that combo. Add a squeeze of lemon, a splash of vanilla and pinch of salt to bring out all the flavors. <–FYI, this jam would be amazing for a PB & J. Just sayin’.
Then comes the white chocolate part. If you’d like, you can add some white chocolate chips to the middle of each pop-tart. I did this for half of mine, and yes, it’s as good as it sounds. AND then, I also stirred a little melted white chocolate into the frosting. It’s the indulgent part of these pop-tarts, but it’s worth it because it is delish.
So do you see now? The perfect Tuesday treat, right. Pretty easy to make, full of whole grain oats and healthy berries and topped with just a little sweetness.

ps. Happy pie day! Pop-tarts count as personal pies, right? Thinking so. 🙂
When do you add the egg in the dough? ☺️
The egg is used to brush the crust in step 5. Please let me know if you have any other questions:) xTieghan
