For the first week of school, I made Grown up Pop-tarts a healthy version of a childhood delight! It’s great for kids and adults! These are a mix of a toaster and gourmet pop-tart, the crust/dough is amazing! This recipe was adapted from a wonderful blogger and you tuber call feasting on fruit her link is below!

Very Berry Pop-tarts
(Gluten and Oil Free)
1 1/2 cup gluten-free flour (I used Bobs Red Mill All purpose, but other kinds should work just fine.) (Want to use oat flour check out the link at the bottom!)
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/4 heaping cup maple, date or coconut sugar or whatever you have use it!
2 ripe bananas (chilled overnight in the fridge)
½ tsp of baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional, I didn’t need any)
1 batch of blueberry jam
My Quick Blueberry Jam! (I mixed this with strawberry jam when I ran low on the video)
Approx 11/2 cups blueberries (I used frozen blended a cup and then add the ½ cup and pulsed it to make the jam chunky.)
1/2 cup of water
2-3 tbsp of orange juice or zest
1 tbsp of tapioca starch
Blend ingredients. Cook add tapioca starch, continue cooking and stirring until thickened, then refrigerate.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the GF flour, tapioca flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and vanilla.
Add in the chilled banana and use your hands to cut it in and knead until you have a ball of slightly sticky dough. You may need to add a few more tablespoons of flour if it is too sticky.
Chill the dough for 2-4 hours if possible.
Roll it out on parchment paper (use the same paper to cook with)
Cut the dough into a rectangle or shape pieces of dough into rough square/rectangles into about 8 total. Place jam on the first rectangle and then place the second piece over it and then seal/pinch the edges closed. Go back over the pop tarts to shape them and then crimp the edges with a fork. Form 4 pop-tarts.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350F.
Frost them if you like, or enjoy them plain!
