Yes you read right…pop tarts it is!  I often think about the childhood foods I loved as a little one and have been wanting to create these sweet toaster-ready desserts for my daughter.

My pop tart tribute was a devouring victory {my taste testers raved}; using all clean ingredients makes this deliciously edible for breakfast too! All my vegan and paleo friends will be all over this post!

This recipe could be sugar free for those following a candida free diet but honestly, it is a pop tart people so I had to use just a little!

Of course I use unrefined sugar, and no flour or eggs!!  For those calorie counting kind of peeps, this is low in calories, carbs and I should mention it has added protein using the almond flour and ground flax?!

As you roll out the dough about an 1/8 inch thick and cut your tops and bottoms for the pop tart; add back the pieces you cut off to tidy your rectangles as seen in the first picture. There are no scraps; you will use all the dough to make the 6 pop tarts. The smell is mouth watering as they bake and even when you heat them back up the next day in the toaster! Enjoy!

  3. In a separate bowl mix sugar {if using} with water, vanilla and melted coconut oil.
  4. Pour into flour mixture and blend until a ball forms.
  5. Sprinkle 2 tbsp. tapioca over dough to handle without it being too sticky. Break the dough into 2 halves.
  6. Flatten ½ the dough between 2 pieces of wax paper with a rolling pin about ⅛” thick.
  7. Roll dough so you get a large strip to cut 3- 4×3 inch rectangles for tart bottoms.
  8. Peel away extra dough and with a pizza cutter cut the edges to get bottoms tidy.
  9. Place 3 bottoms on lightly oiled cookie sheet. Spread 1 tbsp of filling on bottoms.
  10. Roll and flatten out 3 tops {still using dough from first half}. Place top over bottoms.
  11. Using a wet fork press the edges to close off pop tart.
  12. Follow step 6 thru11 for last 3 pop tarts using the other ½ of the dough.
  13. Bake for 20 minutes or so in a 350 oven until they have a slight golden color.
  14. If using frosting let pop tarts cool a tad but truthfully these are amazing without it.

Notes
This frosting will last up to a week or you can freeze it for another time. Spread it on your warm pop tart after toasting when you are ready to eat it! If you would like more information on how to soak nuts you can read my post on it by typing in “Benefits of Soaking Nuts” in the search at the right top of my blog.

If you use only stevia to sweeten this frosting be graceful with your dashes just a few at a time. Remember stevia is 300x stronger than sugar so taste as you go. Notice the few dashes I used in the picture; than I blended and added a tad more. I toasted the pop tart than added the frosting or you can dip as you go!
