A Healthier Pop Tart


This recipe was really fun and had us feeling super nostalgic. After all, who didn’t love Poptarts as a kid???

Full disclosure, this is not the healthiest recipe we’ve ever posted but when you consider the ingredients in a store bought Poptart (see below), this recipe takes it from an ultra-processed food to a gluten free, lower carb treat made with all real ingredients. Enjoy in moderation!

Wild Berry Poptart Ingredients…Yikes

Ingredients For the Pastry:

  • 2 cups almond flour

  • 2 cups coconut flour

  • 1 tbs sea salt

  • 2 tbs sugar

  • 1 ½ cup grass fed butter ( cold, cut into pieces )

Ingredients For the Filling:

  • 2 cup sliced mixed berries (can use frozen berries)

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

****(OR just use quality store bought jam)

Ingredients for the Icing:

  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar

  • 1 tbs almond milk

  • Optional sprinkles :)

Instructions for pastry:

  1. Pre- heat oven to 350 degrees

  2. In a Kitchen Aid mixer or food processor, pulse all pastry ingredients except eggs to create crumbs. Once crumbs form, add in eggs and continue mixing so that dough like consistency forms.

  3. Divide the dough in half to make two equal parts. Wrap each one in plastic wrap and flatten discs, then chill in the fridge for a minimum of 15 minutes.

  4. Rollout one disc of dough by placing it between two sheets of parchment paper on a large cutting board. Starting from the center and moving outward, into a 9 x 12 “ rectangle (approximately), 1/8-1/4” thick. Place rolled out dough back in the fridge to keep chilled.

  5. Repeat step 3 with the second batch of dough (rolling out into a rectangle).

Instructions for filling (if not using high quality store bought jam):

  1. Place berries and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Allow to boil and then lower heat to med and allow to boil/strong simmer over heat for 20 minutes. Stir and smash berries as they cook.

Instructions for Icing: ( do this step while pop tart is cooling)

  1. Whisk together icing ingredients

Putting it All Together :

  1. Spoon thick layer of jam over one set of dough, leaving a 1/2” border dough.

  2. Place second rectangle dough on top of jam cover dough. Gently seal the edges with a fork, as dough will be crumbly. Prick the top of the pastry with fork to allow steam to release while baking.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. Wait for it to cool, then ice pop tart and garnish with sprinkles. Allow icing to cool prior to eating! Cut into serving size pieces ( anywhere from 9 to 12 squares).
