If you’ve been around here for a while, you know I absolutely love 2 Ingredient Dough. I use it all. the. time. It’s most known for savory recipes, but you can use it for sweet recipes too, like these Homemade Pop Tarts from 2 Ingredient Dough.
These are really easy to make because 2 Ingredient Dough is so simple. There’s no yeast involved, so you don’t have to worry about things like proofing the dough or letting it rise.
That also means you can make the dough and then immediately use it.
Drugstore Divas has no association with Kellogg’s Pop Tarts and has no ownership of the name.

How To Make Homemade Pop Tarts:
Pre-heat your oven to 350.
Start by making your 2 Ingredient Dough.
Quick lesson, since this post isn’t an actual two ingredient dough recipe: Mix together the self-rising flour and vanilla Greek yogurt until combined.
Put the dough on a floured surface, and kneed it for about two minutes, folding one end over, then making a quarter turn. Then, roll the dough into a ball.
Set the ball on a floured piece of parchment paper.
Use a floured rolling pin to roll the dough into a very thin rectangle. Shoot for 1/8 of an inch. Thinner is better.
Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 16 rectangles.
If you have any leftover dough, you can reroll it and cut it into rectangles.
Scoop strawberry jelly in the center of each rectangle, leaving about a 1/4-inch around each side.
Put another dough rectangle on top.
Use a fork to push down the edges to attach them.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the dough is a light, golden brown.
Remove the Homemade Pop Tarts from the oven and immediately start making your icing.
Put 1/2 teaspoon of icing on each Pop Tart. Quickly spread it using an icing spreader.
Immediately sprinkle the rainbow sprinkles on top.
The icing will harden very quickly, so if you don’t immediately add the sprinkles, you won’t be able to add them. Because of that, you can only ice one Pop Tart at a time.
This recipe makes the classic strawberry Pop Tart. But, you can change it slightly to make some of the other popular varieties.
Blueberry: To make a Blueberry Pop Tart, simply swap the strawberry jelly for blueberry jam. This would work for any fruit-filled homemade Pop Tart.
Brown Sugar Cinnamon: Melt 1 tablespoons butter. Use a pastry brush to brush the butter on eight of the rectangles. Mix together 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the butter.
When you’re making your icing, you’re going to want to sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon into it before glazing the Pop Tarts.
Tips for making 2 Ingredient Dough Pop Tarts:
The dough will rise while it bakes, just like a regular dough. Because of that, you want to roll the dough thinner than you really expect. If you don’t, your Homemade Pop Tarts will be really doughy.
Don’t overfill your 2 Ingredient Dough Pop Tarts. It will ooze out the sides if you fill them too much.
If your fork is sticking, stick your fork in flour before using it to seal the sides of the Homemade Pop Tarts.
Let your Homemade Pop Tarts sit for a couple minutes after you ice them. The icing will go on clear, but when it cools and hardens, it will be the white color you’re expecting.
How can you store leftover Homemade Pop Tarts?
This batch ends up making eight Pop Tarts, which is a lot to eat at once. So you definitely will need to save them.
Once Homemade Pop Tarts have cooled completely, you can store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Can you freeze 2 Ingredient Dough Pop Tarts?
We often freeze bread products, and 2 Ingredient Dough products are no different.
If you want, you can freeze 2 Ingredient Dough Pop Tarts. After they have cooled completely, wrap them in plastic wrap, then store them in a freezer safe ziptop bag for up to six months.
Just be careful of where you place them in the freezer. Keep them closer to the front of the freezer and don’t pile anything heavy on top of them.
How do you reheat Homemade Pop Tarts?
Pop Tarts are usually heated by putting them in the toaster, but I wouldn’t do that with these Homemade Pop Tarts. The icing on them will melt and make a big mess in your toaster.
Instead, you can reheat refrigerated Homemade Pop Tarts in the air fryer at 350 for three minutes. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can reheat them in an oven at 350 for about 10 minutes.
You can microwave it too, but it definitely won’t be as good. The dough will be really soft instead of crisp.
If you need to reheat a frozen Pop Tart, you want to take it out of the freezer and defrost it in the fridge overnight. Then, reheat it as above.
Can you make sugar-free Homemade Pop Tarts?
These aren’t sugar-free, but it’s pretty easy to make them sugar free if you wanted.
Instead of using vanilla Greek yogurt, use a non-fat Greek yogurt. Use a pure vanilla extract to flavor the dough instead.
Make sure to use a sugar-free jelly to fill the Homemade Pop Tarts.
And finally, for the icing, use a baking sugar alternative, which is a sugar-free powdered sugar.
Are these Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Pop Tarts?
Two ingredient dough is a really popular recipe for people following Weight Watchers.
But, I wouldn’t call this a Weight Watchers Pop Tarts recipe.
The difference is that the Weight Watchers version of 2 Ingredient Dough uses non-fat Greek yogurt because it’s a ZeroPoint food. This recipe uses vanilla Greek yogurt, which is not a ZeroPoint food.
The jelly and sugar also have points.
Regular Pop Tarts are 8 or 9 points. So, even though these do have points, they are less points than a traditional Pop Tart.
