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!

Ingredients: 
  • 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)

Directions: 
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a mixing bowl combine your flours, coconut crystals, salt, and baking powder.

  3. Add in your wet ingredients and mix well. This includes the eggs, whites, coconut oil, honey, applesauce, and vanilla.

  4. Combine your mixture well.

  5. 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!***

  6. Spoon about 1 tbs. of preserves onto each rectangle.

  7. Gently cover the preserves with a thin layer of batter.

  8. Bake in your oven for 18-22 minutes or until the corners start to brown.

  9. 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!)

  10. Enjoy!!!

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!
