Things just taste better when they are made with love. If you buy pop tarts at the store, sure, they taste like pure sugar, but you sure don’t taste any love in them. So even though it would take less time and energy to simply buy pop tarts at the store, there is much more joy in creating them with your own hands.
I found the recipe for homemade pop tarts here. I made ours with whole wheat flour, and with fillings of jam, cinnamon sugar, or chocolate.
