Homemade Air Fryer Pop Tarts

I had been eyeing an air fryer for a few years, but last year, I noticed the prices were dropping so, on a whim, I bought one at Best Buy, of all places.  At first, I stayed safe and only made frozen chicken tenders and french fries.  It is SO convenient, and they come out crispy every time.  And it’s fast!  I can stick the fries in the air fryer and cook the rest of the meal and it is just amazingly simple.  Last year, I started branching out and trying new things.  I cut my own potatoes and had delicious red potatoes with breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  Some suggest using oil, but I have found that it’s rarely necessary!

Yesterday I had received some Honey Fruit Spread from Nature Nate’s (check out the video of my  hubs trying it on toast on FB Live below!) and wanted to try making one of my childhood favorites, Pop Tarts, so I felt like this was the perfect time!

The recipe is super simple, and you can customize it however you like.  I have many ideas for different flavors!  This was my second attempt at a breakfast food in the air fryer.  The first being a savory breakfast pocket!

Air Fryer Pop Tarts

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

Make these adorable air fryer pop tarts for breakfast or a fun snack!


  • 1 refrigerated or homemade pie crust
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • cooking spray, optional
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt, for icing, optional


  1. Lay out refrigerated pie crust or roll out homemade pie crust.
  2. Using a cookie cutter, cut out two shapes for every pop tart you want to make (because they have to match up!)
  3. Spoon out about a TBSP of a jam (more or less depending on the size of your cutout) and spread it within 1/2″ of your edge.
  4. Carefully place the other cutout on top of your jam and gently press edges together using a fork.
  5. Place pop tarts in the air fryer, careful that they are not touching. Spray the top of the pop tarts if you want them to crisp a little more, but it’s totally not necessarily.
  6. Cook 7-10 minutes on 370 degrees, checking every minute after 6 minutes for desired doneness.
  7. They are ready and delicious at that point, but if you want some healthier “icing,” mix a dollop of fruit spread and a dollop of greek yogurt and drizzle over the top!

Worked out perfect, how do you store them? Fridge or freezer or countertop?

I've never actually had any to store :) but I would probably feel comfortable leaving them on the countertop for a day or two. Fridge or freezer would work, too, if you're keeping them any longer.

I would love to get an air fryer so I could make my own poptarts. My favorite flavor is raspberry.
