Air Fryer Pop Tarts

If you have been around me or follow me on social media, then you know I have been wanting an air fryer. We use the oven a lot to bake our veggies. During the hot months of Summer we really hate to use the oven, so this is a perfect alternative.

My daughters boyfriend met up with us last weekend for dinner. He handed me flowers and an early birthday present. Hes a sweetheart, right?
The gift was an air fryer. I was so excited and told him I could not wait to get home and play with it. I was serious. I have used it every night so far. Last night, I made these delicious Pop Tarts. 

These pop tarts are made using only two ingredience, three if you count the jelly in the center. The original recipe calls for Greek yogurt and self rising flour but I chose to use Nutrisystem’s vanilla protein shake instead. It worked up nice and the vanilla flavoring gave the dough just enough sweetness. Needless to say, they are healthier than regular pop tarts. 

Air Fryer Pop Tarts.
2 cups- self rising flour
1/2 cup - Nutrisystem Shake. ( I used the pre made shakes but you can mix the powder too).
Roll dough thin and cut into triangles.
Layer jelly between to layers and seal the edges with a fork.
Place two or three at a time in air frier.
Cook 400 degrees for 8 minutes, flipping half way through. 
(Makes about 6 at approx 140 calories each.)
Icing is optional.

They tasted great but I will warn you not expect them to taste like Kellogg's. The husband gave them a thumbs up so thats a win.

For dinner each night I have had fun cooking my veggies crispy. We normally do this in the oven but the air fryer is easier and quicker.
I call it my “easy bake oven” which I never had growing up by the way

I plan to use my air fryer for a more healthy way of cooking without oil. Since being on a diet, I rarely eat any fried foods any more. Now I can have the taste and texture of deep fried or oven fried foods with out the guilt. 

If you are looking to loose weight the right way, join Nutrisystem like me.

  4. I had an easy bake oven and believe me, I never created anything that looked this great! I have been wanting an air fryer (in addition to the instant pot) to keep from using my oven so much...what brand did you receive? There are so many to choose from...I prefer getting a reference when it comes to brands. :-) These really do look wonderful and I like crispy veggies also! Hugs!
