Everybody turn around while I do my little poptart victory dance……. Okay, now that that is out of the way I can tell you about them. Sorry, it’s just that I actually made poptarts without having them split open and spill their guts while baking (which is what usually happens to me).
And guess what? They are gluten-free and have no artificial colors. I used beets to color my homemade sugar sprinkles. Okay, so maybe I am getting a little obsessed with using beets as food coloring. But really, how cool is it that you can achieve almost any shade of pink or red and not worry about how unhealthy it is for your kids. I’m hooked on the beet thing. The next thing I want to try is beet root powder. I have heard that it is good for a darker shade of red. Maybe I can get some while I am in the States.
So, I finally jumped on the Black Forest wagon. Is it just me or is it becoming a new fad? It’s probably just me because I think it’s awesome.
Making these gluten-free was not the original plan. I actually started to make them and then realized that we were out of all-purpose flour so I went to plan b, oatmeal flour. Can you really make something just as good without wheat? Of course you can. You would never even know that these were gluten-free if no one told you. These are way better than real poptarts ever thought about being.
I’m going to be honest with you. I rarely measure anything. If it weren’t for the fact that I make most of my recipes for my blog I would never measure. Also, I hate writing recipes out. My family makes fun of me because I hate being watched too much while I am doing things. Not really just having people around, but when someone starts analyzing what I am doing it drives me crazy. So why do I do what I do? Because I love the other parts of it. Yes, I dread having to write out and explain everything and I am sure that you can tell I am not a good writer. The part I enjoy is creating. I love creating yummy food, making it look as good as it tastes, trying to take good pictures of it, and then sharing it with people who I love and seeing their reactions.
That is why I make myself get through all of the boring stuff, so I can get to the good stuff. Like making and sharing poptarts!
