  • 2 tbsp. tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

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!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6
  • Dough:
  • 2¼ cups almond flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp. tapioca flour
  • ¼ cup ground flax
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil {melted}
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. coconut sugar {omit for sugar free}
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp fine Himalayan sea salt
  • Filling:
  • 8 pitted dried dates
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  1. To make filling: First add all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy, about 2 min. Set aside.
  2. For dough: In a mixer blend almond flour, tapioca {reserve 2 tbsp.}, flax, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  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- 4x3 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.

Frosting (vegan, dairy, grain, gluten free}
Prep time
Total time
  • For Frosting:
  • ½ cup soaked cashews
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp. coconut cream {full "good" fat}
  • 2 tbsp. Ghee {clarified butter}
  • 2 tbsp. coconut manna/butter
  • 1-2 tbsp. raw honey {sugar free use few dashes of stevia}
  1. In a food processor add all ingredients except honey or stevia.
  2. Blend at least 5 minutes until creamy.
  3. Add honey or stevia to taste and blend.
  4. Place in refrigerator until ready to spread on pop tart.
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!


With a Spoonful of Health,

    Quick question….Do I have to use a food processor or can I use my blendtec? Aaaand if I use my blendtec, how long should I blend and what setting. Yep, totally new to this. Thanks!

      Good question Katie, you most certainly can use your blend tec. I have one too, vita mix and food processor lol! Such a kitchen gal I am {wink wink}! Anyway, you can use the smoothie/pudding button however, you may need to stop and push it down sides so the blades catch it to mix since it is not a lot of ingredients to make the frosting. As for the dough a hand mixer would work if you do not have counter mixer. By hand will work of coarse too it just will be a little elbow grease to get the job done. You will defiantly need a rolling pin. Let me know if you need anything else!

    A MILLION times better than an ordinary poptart! My favorite has always been brown sugar and cinnamon so when I found this recipe that fit my new healthy lifestyle I was happier than a bird with a french fry. At a first glance at the ingredients and directions I was super intimidated, as a single working mom to an 18 month old I’m a bit pressed for time and I’m totally a newbie at a healthy lifestyle lol. So I was like ya know what it will be so worth it to make my own, i’ll know what’s in it, it is safe and healthy for myself and my daughter(who loves sweets). When i get home i start putting everything together, get the oven on, the filling made, and then the dough made, only to realize i have no rolling pin!! so when it came time to roll it out, i put the tapioca flour on the ball of dough on a piece of wax paper and then placed another sheet of wax paper over top to roll it out with??? dun dun dun a hairspray can haha, hey when your in a pinch and have everything ready to go anything will suffice as long as it doesn’t touch your actual food of course 🙂 so after baking them and waiting for them to cool i debated on making the frosting, first i wanted to try it before i added to it, and OH-EM-GEE it was the best poptart ever! the consistency of the poptart and the filling were a million times better than regular poptarts which if any of you have eaten they are pretty dry and always need a glass of milk, these healthy poptarts however are moist and crisp at the same time! I can’t believe how delicious they were on top of being healthy!
    anyone looking to try these totally should! they are amazing and not even difficult to make.
    Thanks for helping me out Dawn on my new healthy lifestyle, which also helps my daughter! You really have a gift for healthy YUMMY recipes.

      Julie, I am so glad you made the beloved pop tart!!!! I love how you ingeniously used your hairspray can for a rolling pin!! You are an inspiration to me and your daughter is blessed to call you mom for all your healthy efforts in raising her! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us and I hope you and your daughter get to eat many more pop tarts together!
