Healthy Homemade Pop Tarts
Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod OHMYGOD. Homemade Pop Tarts. HEALTHY Homemade Pop Tarts!
I saw a quite some time ago and finally decided to try it out. I used a blend of buckwheat flour, oat flour and brown rice flour, but the gluten free tart dough broke apart easily and was extremely delicate. After baking, it only got worse… it was impossible to pick up pop tarts without them breaking. Here’s a picture:
Oh, and they didn’t taste very good either. The dough was too salty and too dry. I started over and made a new recipe. I omitted the buckwheat and used more oat flour, reduced the salt, shortening and agave, and incorporated flax to help bind the dough.
Amazing. These taste very authentic. I used to eat the real Pop Tarts almost every day in high school, so I know what I’m talking about! I remember always breaking off the crusts because it was dry and crumbly and indulging in the filling. I was alllll about the filling 😉
The crust on these homemade Pop Tarts are almost exactly the same, however I must admit they are a bit more crumbly, but that didn’t stop all my taste-testers from gobbling these up! We just learned to hold a hand under our mouth while simultaneously shoving a Pop Tart into our face 😉
You can find the full recipe and instructions in the Naughty or Nice Cookbook!
I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice. But, I understand not having a recipe here can be frustrating. So, I'll meet you halfway... how does that sound? I'll show you all the ingredients I use in the recipe. That way, you can determine on your own whether or not the cookbook is for you!
With love and good eats,
