whole grain strawberry pop tart scones

I got the idea to make these yesterday, after a particularly drool-worthy tweet from Beth that said she had just eaten a scone that tasted just like a strawberry pop tart.

I wanted a strawberry pop tart! Wah Wah Wah

But, alas, there were none to be found.

So what did I do? I pulled on my hot pink rain boots and got into action.

These scones are light and fluffy with a sweet white frosting drizzle, much like strawberry pop tarts.

However unlike pop tarts, these scones actually contain natural ingredients that you can pronounce (butter and vanilla bean, anyone?). When I was done baking, I brought the plate over to Adam’s house where he wolfed one down alongside a plate of lasagna.

Looks like someone’s feeling a little better.

Next time I make these I’ll most likely add some chocolate chips just because. I mean, they’re perfectly wonderful without, but what isn’t made better by the addition of chocolate chips?

Because these only take half an hour to make, start to finish, they’d be the perfect thing to pop into the oven early on Saturday or Sunday morning for a weekend breakfast treat. They freeze well, too! Just defrost in the oven and then once cool drizzle the frosting over the tops.

Whole Grain Strawberry Pop Tart Scones

(new recipe modified on 2/26 after a couple people told me the dough was too wet to handle)

makes 8 scones

Print this recipe!


1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 cup all purpose flour

1 T baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup sugar

6 T cold butter, sliced into small pieces

1/2 cup cream

1/4 cup milk

1 vanilla bean, scraped (or two teaspoons vanilla extract)

1 cup chopped fresh strawberries

for icing:

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp milk


Preheat oven to 425.

Mix together the vanilla bean seeds, strawberries and milk in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter and work mixture together with your fingertips until it reaches the consistency of sand.

Add the strawberries, milk and cream to the dry ingredients and mix together until a shaggy, wet dough forms.

Pat dough into a large circle on a lined baking sheet and cut into eight pieces (like cutting a pie). Separate the pieces about an inch apart and bake for 16 minutes or until golden.

Let scones cool completely while you combine the powdered sugar and milk to make the icing.

Drizzle icing over scones and serve.

  • Stacey (The Home-Cooked Vegan)

    These kind of remind me of those frozen things that are filled with (fake!) fruit that you put in the toaster to heat, and then drizzle icing over. For the life of me, I can’t think of the name of them. I spent my high school years inhaling them though!

    Hmmm, I’m wondering how this recipe would turn out if I used Earth Balance and soy milk? I think I’m gonna give it a shot this weekend!

      Toaster strudles!!!! I remember those too … so good, but I haven’t had one in YEARS. I can still remember the commercials — a kid’s mom would give him a poptart for breakfast and he’d meet a friend who gave him a toaster strudle instead, and then he’d open his locker to a waterfall of old poptarts … Ah, the ’90s! Haha!

        Strawberry picking was one of my fave parts of summer when I was growing up in rural Ohio. We’d rinse them, lay them out on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with sugar, and freeze. AMAZING! I still think about it every June. You’ll love it.

  • Lexi
    February 26, 2011 at 7:58 am

    I made these this morning and, although absolutely delicious, instead of being fluffy like yours, they are completely flat. I followed your recipe exactly (including the whole wheat pastry flour). Any ideas about where I might have gone wrong?

    • jenna
      February 26, 2011 at 8:11 am

      oh no!!! That’s awful! I honestly don’t know what happened if you followed all the instructions. My only idea was that maybe you used 1 tsp baking powder instead of 1 TBL baking powder?

  • Kara
    February 26, 2011 at 10:42 am

    quick question.. I just made these and used google reader on my phone to read your recipe. I just realized, when I got back onto my computer, that the recipe on the reader says 1 cup ww pastry flour & 1 cup all purpose flour, while the recipe on the site says 2 cups ww pastry flour. why is that??

    • jenna
      February 26, 2011 at 11:39 am

      Because I just now updated the recipe to be half and half since a person was having issues with the scones not being “fluffy” enough. I guess google reader didn’t update but the recipe version on my site is correct!

      Do let me know how they turn out for you–I’m sure they will be delicious! πŸ™‚

      • Kara
        February 26, 2011 at 9:23 pm

        welllllll.. they ARE delicious. but they are definitely not “scone-y.” I think below someone commented about them being a sticky, wet mess and mine sort of were too.. couldn’t cut them at all. I ended up baking them in a square-ish shape on the cookie sheet and then cut them into bars afterward. I did half pastry flour and half all purpose. they are fluffy and very tasty, so I think I’ll try again soon for a thicker, less runny batter. can’t pass up trying to perfect these as scones, since they taste so good!

  • Kris
    February 26, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Hey – have you tried vanilla bean paste? It’s my new favorite thing to bake with. I got mine at Sur la Table in Corte Madera. It’s awesome. ($10.95)

  • Laura
    February 26, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    I made these, and they taste great! They came out a bit soggy on the bottoms, though, even though they were golden brown on top and seemed otherwise cooked-through! Any idea why this might have happened? I was afraid to leave them in longer because my oven has a great tendency to burn things left in for even the tiniest bit too long.

    Great recipe though!

  • Sharon
    February 26, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Hey Jenna-I was just getting ready to make these when I too noticed that you call for ww pastry flour and all purpose…can I just use two cups ww pastry flour if that’s all I currently have? Also what thickness should the scones be? one inch? three quarters of an inch? Thanks!

    • Sharon
      February 26, 2011 at 5:14 pm

      Well, not quite sure what happened but my dough turned out to be a sloppy wet mess…there was no chance of cutting it or separating it whatsoever…so I am just baking it on the baking sheet as is and will cut it after the fact? problem is I have no idea how to compensate time-wise for baking it as a solid mass…

      • jenna
        February 26, 2011 at 7:14 pm

        This is weird…indeed. You are the second person who has had this problem but five other people had the scones turn out perfectly! I’m not sure what to think since I tested the recipe exactly and that didn’t happen for me…

        Mine were wet, but I could still cut them. If you truly cannot cut, I would bake as is for 20 minutes and then slice afterward..they really should not be that wet though.

      I changed it because a couple people were having issues with using the pastry flour. You can still use all pastry flour (I did and they came out perfectly), but add extra flour if they seem to wet to you, as they did to two others.

      Your dough circle should be about 1/2 inch think. πŸ™‚

        Yeah, I think too much pastry flour and milk…what I wound up with had the texture of corn bread! I see now that you’ve changed the liquids from 1 cup milk to 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup cream…that should fix it! I will be trying this again…

          no idea what happened since they worked out (twice!) for me with the original recipe as well as about five others. I just tried the modified recipe though yesterday afternoon though, and they worked out great!

            No worries, it is of course entirely possible that there was some user error involved…I will be trying again though with your updated recipe-I’ll let you know how they turn out! Oh, one other question for you…when you measure your flour, do you scoop it, or spoon it into your measuring cups?

    I baked these today! The dough was too wet to handle, but I eventually just patted it into a circle on the baking sheet and put it in the oven, hoping for the best. I cut it afterwards and it was fine. They turned out delicious! Also, I used frozen strawberries so that may have contributed to the wet dough too.

    Can we talk about how I’m literally dying to make these? I haven’t had a poptart in at least 10 years, but I still dream of finding a gluten-free, refined sugar free toaster strudel – the love of my youth. I’m not too skilled at altering recipes and wish I could try these just the way they are. But I think I’ll definitely have to give it a whirl! They look too good to pass up!

    I made these tonight using the new recipe. The mixture was still very wet so I added about 1/4c. more whole wheat pastry flour and 1/4c. more all purpose flour (to the the 2 cups already stated in the recipe), this seemed to help. I let them bake for about 15 minutes, then cut them, then put then back in for 5.

    I made these 2 times today…I am in the “dough is too wet” camp.
    First time I just did as AJ mentioned re: adding more flour, but still a big gloppy mess. Struggled to get it cut without breaking the whole thing apart as it was too hot and tender.

    Second time, I reduced the cream by a 1/4 cup and it was a little better–sooo frustrating. I ended up baking them the second time in a tart pan with a removable base. After the first 20 minutes, pulled the base off, added parchment to my baking stone and slide it onto that for the last 10 minutes. Turned off heat and let it cool off a bit and then onto a cooling rack. I think I dirtied a record number of knives, off set spatulas, cake lifter and tools. Crossing my fingers it’ll be good at work tomorrow.

    I just made these and they were really good! I left the milk out at first to make sure they weren’t going to be too wet, but they weren’t so I just added the milk in.
    I wonder if the people that had trouble are using frozen strawberries or butter that’s not cold enough? Just a thought?

  • anonymous
    March 26, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    made these today—they came out PERFECTLY. i think i used the original recipe, but i had no problem at all. the dough was definitely really wet but i just floured my hands and knife and there was no issue. i think i may have sprinkled a bit more flour in and folded it in with my hands, but i can’t remember. either way they’re delish! i did thin out the icing a bit, but that’s all. thanks for the recipe, i love them!

    These are in the oven right now! The dough…batter…whatever…was SOOO good!! Im afraid the final product is already much reduced! I thought it was funny because I ended up adding MORE liquid…after all those that needed less, I needed more…haha.

    We’ve been doing a decent job steering clear of processed foods, but I’ve been missing the trashy joy of the Strawberry Pop Tart, and have been googling around for homemade alternatives. I admit to half-expecting to find some bean curd paste on a rice cake with a strawberry or two on top. But this. Oh, this. You’re on to something wonderful. Big bonus: it’s strawberry season, so we can go out and harvest our own, and get our dairy from the farm just down the road. Which is so fresh it should be illegal to call it a Poppish Tart. But I’m going to do it anyway. THANKS!

    I made these this morning and i am in the wow, the dough is soooo wet and hard to manage…had to fold in some extra flour and flour up the hands and knife to cut. and the glaze was off as well….but they were very yummy nonetheless…i did use vanilla extract instead of the bean, so, i don’t know…

    I agree that the dough is very hard to handle. After reading all the comments, I was nervous to try this, but they look so good. I used fresh strawberries and drained them in a colander for a few hours to make sure they were dry. I bought vanilla beans, used very cold butter and heavy cream and the dough was still wet. It stuck to everything. I added extra flour several times and finally was able to manage it. They taste okay though.

  • Junk Free Zone: Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts | Foodie Fox
    July 29, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    […] When you need something quick and you just can’t look at another bowl of cereal, oatmeal or a granola bar, what could be better than a pop tart. While I am sorry to be the burster of bubbles, these often festively designed “fruit-filled” treats produced by Kellogg’s are horribly bad for you. The blog Workout Mommy breaks down the nutrition information and the fat, sugar and sodium content are truly appalling – each tart has 200 calories, 45 of which are from fat! While the immediate sugar rush may seem appealing, this “junk,” as the blog refers to it as, is simply not worth it. That doesn’t mean, however, that the hankering for pop tarts has gone away and as we suggest with most of our most beloved “junk” classics – if it’s bad for you, make a healthy version for yourself! This recipe for homemade strawberry pop tarts has sugar, flour and butter (it’s still a pastry, so it’s kind of unavoidable), but the amount in each of the eight that the recipe makes is considerably less and there is definitely no high-fructose corn syrup, nor any other type of oil to be found. This recipe from the blog Eat, Live, Run is actually designed for pop tart scones, but in our minds it’s just not a pop tart if it’s not in a semi-rectangular shape. While the recipe called for an icing to drizzle on top, we chose not to make it and cut a few more calories that way (they’re so sweet and delicious they don’t need it!) We would suggest cutting down the amount of cream and milk as the dough was too wet to handle and required adding additional flour to make workable. We would also suggest working your dough into as much of a rectangle as possible before cutting, as the dough will naturally form a circle and the “traditional” pop tart look requires something of the rectangular complexion. You will find these tarts are much puffier than normal pop tarts if you make them into eight as the recipe calls for. It may be worth trying to roll the dough thinner and cutting into 10-12 instead (though there may not be enough strawberries to go around). Start your day with an on-the-go snack you don’t have to cringe about later! This recipe can be found at the following link:Β […]
