Apple and Maple Butter Pop Tarts

Apple and Maple Butter Pop Tarts

Let’s talk pop tarts. Oh goodness, why are they so delicious?! There must be a little bit of magic packaged in that sliver wrapper. We didn’t have pop tarts that often growing up, but when we did buy them as a special treat, I didn’t mind eating them straight out of the package or warmed up in the toaster. Now there are flavors I didn’t even know existed like chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate vanilla creme, my favorite were the s’mores ones. Unfortunately, pop tarts get a low nutrition score in my book. There might be magic in those silver wrappers, but there is also lots of sugar and processed ingredients, and not to mention that each pop tart is 200 calories!
