Breakfast on the Fly!

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® Toaster Pastries




My teens are not big breakfast eaters. They would never eat eggs, bacon, cereal, toast, or the like before noon. Not that I'd ever get up and cook that for them before noon either. I'm not much of a morning person myself. Oftentimes they grab a quick, convenient breakfast to eat on the way to school. Here's a recipe I tried with my kids. Don't worry, it's nothing fancy or Alton Brownish. Anyone can make this. All you need is a box of Pop-Tarts (I used the unfrosted strawberry ones), a knife, and either a jar of peanut butter or a brick of cream cheese.



Spread peanut butter on one Pop-Tarts toaster pastry.


Top with a second Pop-Tart and cut in half. Now you have two peanut butter and strawberry jam Pop-Tart sandwiches.


Brooklyn, my child who only eats macaroni & cheese, and chocolate milk tried them.


They get a thumb's up from her! It's a miracle! She likes them!


The other way I tried making a Pop-Tart sandwich was with cream cheese.


Mmmm, strawberry cream cheese Pop-Tart sandwich!

When we're really in a rush, it's dry cereal in a ziplock. My daughter gets all excited picking at the different kinds of cereal. Throw in a chocolate chip or a mini marshmallow and she's in heaven.

Tammy said...

Wish I could feed my kids like that! My diabetic son couldn't handle that, and my little girl the bird wouldn't be able to finish one. @@ Unless she was eating at my in-laws' house, where she would be sure to eat the whole box just to make me look bad.

Bree said...

I would love to make the Peanut butter one but my daughter is alergic to peanuts. I how ever crave them and cant have them.

cbhoff said...

Breakfast on the fly is yogurt and granola. I'll pack a little container of granola and the cup of yogurt, and eat it on the way to church or doctors appointment. Yum.

Mami2jcn said...

If we're in a big hurry, we'll grab granola bars.

LOVE your pop-tart sandwich idea!! My go-to breakfast items are granola bars, cereal bars and Fiber bars. My kids really like the Trader Joe's line of cereal bars. I could almost live on Fiber One Bars....love them and they are so filling too!!

Susan said...

I usually grab breakfast to go and eat it at the office. I eat the same thing everyday...instant oatmeal (in maple), a hard boiled egg, and a banana.

kellyH said...

I like to try to cook a batch of muffins/pancakes/bread to have on hand for a breakfast. thankfully my family will eat those things. :) but my husband would probably eat pop-tarts every day if he could!

Carol said...

In the evening, when I'm awake, I scramble a bunch of eggs with ham or bacon, green pepper, and cheese and wrap them up in tortillas. Store them covered in the frig. In the morning, we can just grab one, microwave it for a minute, and take it on the run. I make enough to last for several days. Might even be able to freeze them, but I've never tried that.

Linda V said...

My girls go for heat and eat breakfast sandwiches or peanut butter toast.

rankin1997 said...

we do poptarts and granola bars

Lynn J said...

Oh man where was this post BEFORE I started my diet??? Hmmm maybe a treat someday, thanks for the great ideas I'll have to save them for the future. My usual to go breakfast is HB eggs and strawberries.

Erin from Long Island said...

On the fly we grab a couple hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, and a BPA bottle filled with juice or milk or water

Anne J said...

Breakfast on the run for us is usually instant oatmeal. My daughter can heat the water, pour it and eat it in 2 minutes when she is running late for the bus. If we don't even have that much time we will grab granola bars.

I do love those blueberry Pop Tarts with my morning coffee.

Jeanette Huston said...

I like wheat toast with bannanas spread over it. I put a pinch of salt on it. It is yummy and healthy.

archer farms fruit strips and/or nature valley peanut butter granola bars! mmmm :)

kari jasus said...

breakfast to go? a granola bar or bagel

Tina said...

I'd be embarrassed to admit, but since this is a pop tart post...

My husband and I have pop tarts for breakfast almost daily. It's definitely our go-to. Have you ever seen Brian Regan's pop tart segment? Pretty funny. YouTube it, if not :-)

Amy said...

I try to get my daughter to scarf down some yogurt before we leave. I go for coffee and a bagel.

I suppose you don't want to know that oatmeal in the microwave is our quick go to breakfast, do you? :)

I also do waffles with honey on them for Mister Man when we're running late and I don't have any granola made....

Shel said...

We're always in a rush...breakfast on the go is either a Rice Krispie bar, granola bar, or a PopTart..all things she can gobble in the car.

Guilt takes over on the weekends and I do waffles, eggs or Pancakes. Personally, I think she enjoys the weekday breakfasts more.

Mostly we just eat cereal, but if we're really in a rush it's granola bars.

js22 said...

We bake muffins and throw them in the freezer. on those days we need to rush, we take them out, microwave them to thaw them, and eat them as we leave the house!

Betty N said...

It is just my husband and I now so I eat cold cereal and he grabs a piece of fruit if we are in a hurry. When the kids were growing up, a Pop Tart and piece of fruit was their go to when things were too busy for anything else.

coriwestphal said...

Breakfast on the go at our house usually mean granola bars or pop tarts!

Betsy said...

If I'm on the run, I just cram a ton of dry Cheerios in a 3 ziplock bags. 1 for each of my 2 toddler to eat on the way and 1 is saved to eat whenever we get to whatever appointment we're undoubtedly late too. The added bonus is that the food entertains them while we wait and they'll end up wanting to feed me so I get breakfast too.

Wendi P said...

Breakfast on the go for us means NutraGrain bars or a Jimmy Dean sausage/pancake on a stick (only takes 60 seconds in the micro).

Cristen said...

Fiber bars and apples.... Or peanut butter and Nutella sandwich. I have not bought pop tarts in a VERY long time because of all the sugar in them.

Meegan said...

I'm not saying this just to win, but I really do keep at least one box of pop-tarts in my mini-van at all times. I'm really good about making sure the kids eat breakfast, but I'm really bad about it myself! So I usually eat a pop tart in the morning when I'm driving my kids to preschool or off to a MOMS Club event. Totally my go to morning meal!

Michigan Mama to 2 said...

Wow, nobody had an real unique ideas. I drop my kids off at Grandma's to wait for the school bus while I go to work, she feeds them breakfast. On Monday's they have cereal but the rest of the week they get eggs, pancakes, waffles, muffins, crepes etc. etc. They are TOO lucky.

Tara said...

Unfortunately, breakfast-on-the-run usually means a trip through the drive-thru for us, as my kids seem to think Pop-tarts should be eaten an entire box at a time (and thus we only have them on hand for a few hours after I buy them).

Anonymous said...

Pop-Tarts are a dessert in my family, or a treat, not breakfast. Breakfast is usually oatmeal & oj or peanut butter toast & milk. Yummy!!!

My kids prefer Pop Tarts for breakfast - they eat them fast so they can get out the door for school.

Erin T. said...

Both of my daughters have sports practices after school everyday. I would LOVE for them to sit down and eat a breakfast that will help them start their day right, but being teenage girls unfortunately their appearance is more important. I try to make sure that we have Pop Tarts, Granola Bars, Cereal Bars and the like so they can grab and go. I wonder if your Pop Tart sandwiches freeze, or can be put in the fridge overnight...

My fav fast breakfast are toaster strudels...but eggs and fruit are healthier

I, myself drink coffee for breakfast but for my 4 yr old it's a quick fruit cup, go-gurt or anything in a wrapper that claims to be good for him!

LaNae said...

You would not believe the amount of Pop Tarts that our consumed at my house. All the kids, all the time.

Anissa said...

My 4 yr old son is a huge breakfast eater, so he'll eat as much as we'll allow. He liked a toasted PB&J if we go somewhere though and since it's a sandwich w/ the messy stuff inside he's usually pretty go about not making a mess.

this one too please sasha_bc-tx

Melisa said...

Oh my.. never thought about making a sandwich out of pop-tarts, especially with cream cheese... oh YUMMMM.... Great idea. Thank you!

Breakfast on the go is dry cereal or pop-tarts. If I have and extra minute (HA!) I will make a toaster strudel. Yum!

royaldixie said...

We're huge fans of English muffins, eggs and sausage fir breakfast!! I love yogurt too :)

Erin said...

My kids love bagels with cream cheese or cereal for breakfast. I'm just happy to get a coffee down!

Christy P said...

Lots of good ideas! We like Cinnabon bread in the mornings, but if we are in a hurry, Fiber One bars do the trick too.

Kristine said...

A banana and cereal in a ziploc bag.

The Vrabecs said...

Dry cereal and/or freeze dried fruit!

kckarla said...

You know what is really good with this....ice cream. Just Kidding ;-)

Jaime said...

When I need breakfast on the run, I grab a granola bar. Not the healthy ones, the yummy ones. :-) The kids usually get cereal in a ziploc bag.

I love your idea of cream cheese and two strawberry poptarts! The peanut butter one didn't appeal to me, but never say never before trying it, right?

Shannon said...

You know what is really good.... the Popsters in strawberry blast. The are in 100 calorie packs, and i picked them up to try. I think they were limited time thing. I am just finishing my last box, and I don't think I can find them again=(

djw209 said...

Go to breakfast is a toasted bagel with peanut butter on a paper plate to eat while driving to work. Some day I'll remember to buy cream cheese so I can enjoy it on my bagels.

Brandi said...

Our go to breakfast when we are in a rush is granola bars or granola nut clusters.

Laura said...

Granola bars! Cheap, healthy, and yummy!

My kids eat cold cereal or frozen waffles for breakfast. My husband takes a pop tart and o.j. with him in the car on his way to work. He like the strawberry ones without frosting. Maybe I'll suggest the peanut butter.

I love these ideas!!

We usually just grab cereal bars b/c my girls love them or sometimes dry cereal in a ziplock.

Kristen said...

Pop tarts bring back great memories! We do dry cereal in the car on the way to preschool if we are really running late, but my little guy would LOVE it if I handed him a pop tart!

Mary said...

I love poptarts, my family does too, never tried a sandwich version, maybe I will have to pick up a box and try it.

Amy said...

Those are great idea's. We always have poptarts in the house and that would be a quick thing for the boys.

julie said...

Great ideas for pop-tarts! I like granola bars, dry cereal, or even a bagel for a quick on the go breakfast!

I work nights and am sooooo not a morning person (even when I'm off) but I love Pop Tarts anytime of day! I'm definitely going to try the peanut butter idea!

Leanna said...

Like the strawberries and cream cheese idea. I usually do a tart or two of Cinnamon pop tarts with a banana for my on-the-run breakfast.

Betsy said...

We always have mini muffins, dried fruit, light mini Babybel cheese (the individually wrapped kind), and fresh fruit (bananas, grapes, apples or oranges) in the house, so we'll grab some combo of the above if we're in a rush!

Denise said...

every day - carnation instant breakfast with soy milk - my daughter is lactose intolerant and soy has all the calcium of regular milk - the straw really makes her drink it up - we'll be trying your poptart sandwiches soon!!!

Amber said...

I really love that idea, i will have to try that. :) Your voice in your blog is really nice, and pleasant to read. Your daughter is ridiculously cute too.

Jodee said...

My kids love Pop-tarts. We do a lot of parfaits for breakfast - vanilla yogurt, mixed berries (i keep a big bag of berries in the freezer) and granola. They're easy to take in a plastic cup with a plastic spoon, too.

Kristy O. said...

no kids just yet - but my husband and i are both in school - and we love pop tarts, jimmy dean de-lights breakfast sandwiches, bagel-fuls, and special k bars (all with a piece of fruit to keep it as healthy as possible :)) this sounds yummy - will definitely have to try it with our pop-tar stash!

Scott said...

No kids here, but when I am short on time I will grab a smoothie (pre-bottled) out of the fridge or an apple/banana and eat it during my commute.

I don’t have any children, but I do have a husband and I try to take care of him in the morning. If he is in a rush, I will just throw a granola bar or yogurt cup in his lunch bag for him to eat at his desk for breakfast.

guettel78 said...

Our go-to plan for breakfast is usually to lay out all the cereal, oatmeal, fruit, and juice on the counter to let everyone pretty much fend for themselves before we sit down to eat breakfast together. If we’re in a big rush, we’ll usually make fruit, yogurt, and granola parfaits to go. Thanks!

When we're in a major rush, my daughter usually has Instant Breakfast, which she can drink in the car. I like the idea of the peanut-butter and strawberry Poptart. Why didn't I ever think of that?

Granola bars if we're that late. Cereal if we're late, but not THAT late. LOL

bagels are kind of a go-to around here. we're not cream cheese fans, so its just butter on them with no mess. besides that, its pop-tarts for sure! my kids are big fans of brown sugar & cinnamon(as am i) but i'm excited to try the PB strawberry ones!

Mari said...

Go To breakfast for the kids is pop tarts, go gurt or eggos. When I'm on the run I grab a yogurt and a granola bar.

Breakfast on the go is an everyday thing around here. Poptarts are a favorite... PBJ sandwich is a good one too (gets that protein in).

betsey said...

We use these as an after school snack. Breakfast is usually yogurt. I know exciting.

kirine said...

Instant oatmeal and cereal is the "to go" breakfast during the week when everyone is rushing out the door and off to school.

Reader Melly said...

Peanut butter on a waffle

Donna said...

I truthfully never thought about buying my grandkids 'Pop Tarts'
I need to get some and try your recipes too. I usually always make them breakfast on the weekends but I must admit I snapped at one of them last weekend and told them they know how to make toast. Later tho, I came in the house and apologized.
I think they were in shock as I never complain to them so Pop Tarts might be a nice surprise for them when I snap. LOL

Mrs White said...

My son is still pretty young so typically it is a banana and some cheerios. My husband is a pop tart man!

Tricia said...

We do peanut butter crackers in a pinch.

My kids love poptarts, toaster strudel, and cereal bars. I try to make them eggs, biscuits, etc, but only 2 of the 5 will eat it. When we are in a hurry, they get baggies of cereal in the van.

If we're in a rush, it's a total cereal in a bag routine. And, if you're lucky, we may even grab you a bottle water to wash it down with. :)

We make toasted PB&J waffle sandwiches.

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

Ooooh...my kiddos (and my hubby) would LOVE these!!!

My to-go breakfast is Cheerios mixed with Goldfish in a container or ziploc.

JustAGirl said...

We do the pop tarts, or dry cereal, Granola bars.. but wow what a great Idea.. instant pbj!

My boys aren't really into breakfast much either. Usually if they want anything, it is just a quick bowl of cereal

Michelle said...

I either give out dry cereal or a nutrigrain bar!

We usually do things like ritz crackers and peanut butter.. or club crackers and cheese slices. This sounds really good! Thanks for the ideas!

My go to breakfast for my kids in a morning rush are trail mix granola bars. A little sweetness, hiding other stuff that's good for them - gotta love them!

Cropaddict said...

Trying to get my daughter to eat breakfast is an ongoing battle. I am grateful if she will eat anything. I usually eat a granola bar and drink apple juice in the car taking her to school.

The A Team Mom said...

I've trained my kids to know that they need to eat cereal on their own every morning quick as they can. This is really an expensive plan though. I'm truly aweful though and do not let the kids eat in the car- so they either eat before we leave or they are toast! I might let them eat a granola bar... maybe.

Kim said...

a banana and a granola bar always work on the run!

Laura G said...

You made those poptarts look so good I want one! Bagel w/ peanut butter or butter w/ cinn. sugar, dry cereal, fruit are our fast food favs. Granolas too. Loved all your readers ideas!

The Minears said...

My kid is still too young for pop tarts, so right now breakfast on the fly is yogurt-covered raisins. Actually that's our every meal on the fly because they're her favorite thing to eat!

ajminear at gmail dot com

Vicki said...

So for a quick b/fast around here it's granola bars and juice, or bagels with cream cheese. Sometimes it's bag of dry cereal. Life happens and ya have to go with it!

Annie H said...

mmmm...poptarts!

JoDee said...

Breakfast on the go for my one that eats breakfst is a single size serving of cinnamon applesause that she will 'drink' no need to take a spoon with us

Steph said...

My girls used to grab either dry cereal or fruit.

Bekah said...

Typical breakfast is cold cereal. My kids live and breathe that stuff in the morning. If in a hurry they get a cereal bar, or some form of yogurt that doesn't require a spoon. Last resort, bananas, oranges, or an apple! I guess we aren't very creative breakfast people, but it fills the belly!

Teresa Currey said...

Breakfast on the go is usually a stick of string cheese and a little cup or bowl of dry cereal like Mini Wheats Little Bites.

Rachel said...

We like to do those Trader Joe's cereal bars or Pop Tarts. The mess factor is low with those. For some reason it takes my daughter an eternity to eat half a bagel.

zap1605 said...

It's usually dry cereal in a ziplock bag or a special k bar for my daughters

It is what ever we can eat on the fly, and its usually not good for you either.

We're yogurt, fruit and cereal breakfast eaters here. My kids don't do eggs, bacon, toast, etc. They like the sugary stuff!

Pop-tarts are always the go to breakfast for my son.

You can never go wrong with fruit on the go. I'm also a fan of granola bars. I'll have to try those ideas to spice up my pop tarts. I don't eat them for breakfast, but they make a good snack. angelou22 at gmail dot com

Amy K. said...

Yogurt tubes, dry cereal, and peanut butter toast are always on our breakfast menu :) but I also do frozen waffles and sausage biscuits as well.

tommygirl said...

My kids are on their own for breakfast. Only on an occasional saturday will I cook breakfast. They usually make a bowl of cereal or some Eggo Waffles.

5ennie said...

This is so sad, but when we are in a hurry, they just get a bagel each - with nothing on them. And sadder still: we have never tried Poptarts. Gasp!

Lesley said...

OMG those look delicious! Must. Buy. Pop. Tarts.

Janna said...

Awesome pbj idea! I'm going to try it! I like making pbjs with cinnamon raisin bread and use the Pampered Chef sandwich maker to make them crust-less. The boys love them!

Tara said...

I love your ideas! On the go I normally grab dry cereal in a baggie and/or a granola bar. But I used to love pop tarts. I just may have to buy some now.

Allenfamilyadventure said...

Nutragrain bars are a staplea around her, but I guess I could five something else a try!

Shannon said...

Go-to breakfast ideas. HAHAHA!!! Umm...how about a ziplock baggie with some dry cheerios. Or if they're lucky a few graham crackers. Pathetic!!!

Amanda said...

I love them on the go. We can ALMOST get to places on time when we grab and go.

Melissa said...

Breakfast on the run usually consists of......more run and not so much breakfast :(

Linda N said...

baggie of dry cereal, banana, apple slices for us.

Augusta German said...

Well, since Eggo has had some kind of issues lately....we've been buying the smuckers waffles. Of course there's the pop tarts, (my 4 year old would eat nothing else if I let him) and cereal, but to be honest the older one eats breakfast at school for free, so that's pretty much as easy as it gets. :-)

CarolArlington said...

We go for blueberry granola bars if we are in a hurry.

Simply Lovely Gifts said...

My go-to breakfast for years has been a Pop-Tart. I do brown sugar cinnamon & my oldest son does either that, hot fudge sundae, chocolate fudge or smores. He also has muffins & yogurt (he's a big breakfast eater :-))

sandyn said...

oatmeal for me - Cholesterol and such. my 15 year old son? fruit loops..only fitting for his hormonal personality!

Jessica said...

What a great idea! My kids love Pop Tarts - they are going to love these

Jessica said...

What a great idea - my boys will love Pop Tart sandwiches!

Frugal Finds said...

I have tried to cut sugar out of my son's breakfast. His quick morning breakfast is grapes, string cheese and kids yogurt (i know that has sugar!). hhe is anxious for sumemr to start so he can go back to poptarts for breakfast!

Stephanie R said...

Usually granola bars and YoBaby smoothies. Pour the smoothies in a sippy cup and we're ready to hit the road.

Lisa said...

We are all about dry cereal in a baggie with a little bottle of milk (like you get at school) over here. Perfect to eat in the car on our way out.

Laura @ Practical Homeschooling said...

I like buying treats in bulk and making a massive batch of trail mix. Another option is I occasionally grab granola bars. Pop tarts are a good idea...especially with your technique of inserting cheese or pb...must try!

How about an apple or a banana for breakfast to-go?? (yes, my kids are laughing too)

Jen in AZ said...

Our go-tos are PB&J, granola bars, Pop Tarts, (this one is really bad-and it's mostly me that eats them)graham cracker with icing/frosting in between. I think my kids will like the Pop Tart sandwhiches- will try it tomorrow.

Great ideas! I will be trying these soon.

Sara said...

we love pop tarts in my house. just brought the choc chip cookie dough ones for the first time the other day and they are a big hit!

Sherry said...

For me it would be a chocolate covered chocolate chip granola bar and a glass of milk. And a giant cup of coffee! I am going to have to try the poptart with cream cheese... yum yum.

Heather said...

Is there any other type of breakfast when you have kids?
Bagels are what gets grabbed most often. Second up is some instant oatmeal in a thermos (it came with a folding spoon).

Bailey's Leaf said...

Our go-to breakfast on the run is Cheerios in the Goldfish flip tail container.

Jennifer Higgins said...

Granola bars. Not my favorite thing, but, you know.

We keep home made trail mix on hand for all times. We can customize the nuts and dried fruit with a little bit of chocolate too!

Chobani yogurt is our MOST favorite with some ground flax seeds on top for good health!
