I grew up on poptarts. I always hated them. If I had to pick a flavor I would be incredibly boring and choose plain old strawberry. There is a huge poptart craze going on in the fitness world right now. People doing #iifym (flexible dieting) are all about them if the numbers fit. And all the clean eaters are making healthy versions of poptarts. I have no desire for a healthy poptart because I never really cared for them in the first place! But what I do like, is pancakes. Hence these “poptart” pancakes! (There was also a pancake challenge going on last week on Instagram which explains the overload of pancake recipes exploding on my blog hahahaha).
