Gluten Free + Dairy Free Poptarts

Gluten Free + Dairy Free Poptarts

I went to brunch with a friend at a local healthy café and they had these delicious looking poptarts! I bought one for my son + I took a bite and it was SO good. In the back of  my head, I’ve always wanted to create a “healthier” version of a poptart because I LOVE taking conventional “food” items and turning them into something healthier + more nutrient dense.

It always seemed intimidating, so I crossed it off my list until the other day. When I looked at the poptart, I was thinking “I could totally do this!”

Voilá! Here I share with you my homemade gluten free + dairy free poptart that is DELISH. I wasn’t a huge fan of the icing, since it didn’t harden up. I will be back with an icing that works OR you can leave it off – which is what we prefer, since it’s less sugar. 🙂

The filling can be a homemade jelly or just a premade organic jelly that you choose {the one I use here is Costco’s organic strawberry jelly!}.

I’ll put it on my to-do to create a yummy homemade jelly. 😉 Until then, enjoy these gluten free + dairy free poptarts!

Gluten Free + Dairy Free Poptarts

Prep Time25 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time6 hrs 45 mins
Servings: 3 Poptarts

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Palm Shortening
  • 1 Egg Pasture-rasied*

Filling

  • 1 Spoonful Strawberry Jelly Organic pre-made or make your own*

Instructions

  • Put all the ingredients for the crust into a bowl and mix well until combined to form a dough. Put in fridge for 4-6 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and you'll want to leave it at room temperature for a couple minutes as this will make it easier to work with.
  • Put the ball of dough in-between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a roller to flatten out the dough. The thinner you make the dough, the more it will break. I like to keep it a little thick, so it doesn't fall apart. This might be trial and error for you in the first batch.
  • Once flattened out, use a ruler to measure the sides to create perfect rectangles. I went with 5x4 inches. Use a knife to cut those measurements.
  • Place the first rectangle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Take a spoonful of jelly and put on top of that rectangle. Go back to your dough and cut another rectangle and place it on top of the jelly.
  • Take a fork and slightly smash the sides together. You'll have that little imprint from the fork around the sides.
  • Repeat until all poptarts are done. You will have to ball up the dough, re-flatten, measure and cut.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and enjoy! 🙂
