Yes I said Pop Tarts!!!! I would like to lie and tell you I've never had such a horribly sugary food before, tell you that I would never touch them... After all, who would want pure carbs and sugar?....Um me!
I used to love Pop Tarts! They were a special treat for me and my sister back when we were little and the cinnamon was always my favorite! I have not had a Pop Tart in forever - at least 5 years - and I wish I could tell you I wouldn't want one now but actually I would probably love it! I do choose not to eat them because I know how they will make me feel (major sugar crash and fall) but there is no reason why I can't make a healthier version! Prepare yourself - these are a little different and a little healthier than your average Pop Tart! They a little more cakey and dense but they have far less sugar and ingredients!
I'm still working on a cinnamon one but when I make one you'll be the first to know!
- 1.5 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup coconut crystals
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tbs. coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 tbs. vanilla
- 1/2 cup fruit preserves (only ingredients should be fruit)
- 1/4-1/2 cup coconut butter
- Freeze fruit of choice (I used strawberries)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl combine your flours, coconut crystals, salt, and baking powder.
- Add in your wet ingredients and mix well. This includes the eggs, whites, coconut oil, honey, applesauce, and vanilla.
- Combine your mixture well.
- On a greased baking sheet make 6 rectangles of batter about the size of a pop tart and around 1/4-1/2 inch thick. They should be thin!***
- Spoon about 1 tbs. of preserves onto each rectangle.
- Gently cover the preserves with a thin layer of batter.
- Bake in your oven for 18-22 minutes or until the corners start to brown.
- Wait around 5-10 minutes and then while they are still warm spread your coconut butter on top and immediately sprinkle with crushed freeze dried fruit (this is for your sprinkles!)
Makes 6 large pop tarts!
***Little note: I tried to keep this recipe as simple as possible. You are more than welcome to make them a little prettier and more uniform by rolling out your dough and cutting with a cookie cutter! I think they are ten times easier this way and just as delicious, plus far less time consuming to make!
