Looking for a vegan pop tart recipe to bring back those childhood memories? Look no further! This recipe is easy and nostalgic.
A fun snack
Pop tarts have long been a favorite treat of kids (and adults) everywhere! Whether you eat them straight from the package or warm them up in the toaster, pop tarts are a great snack. They’re even more enjoyable when they’re vegan pop tarts!
Which Pop Tarts are vegan?
Fun fact: unfrosted pop tarts are vegan as-is, so you totally don’t have to give them up! But if you’re looking for something a bit more gourmet (or if your snack of choice is a frosted pop tart) you’ll definitely want to give this recipe for Nostalgic Homemade Vegan Pop Tarts a try.
Try experimenting with different fruit fillings! Maybe blueberry vegan pop tarts for breakfast and strawberry vegan pop tarts for a snack? It’s up to you! You could even experiment with using the frosting from this recipe to frost your store-bought pop tarts if you’re looking to simplify things.
I’ve also been known to love different colored frostings on my vegan pop tarts! Add a few drops of food coloring (or a vegetable/fruit-based coloring) to your mixture for a fun twist.
