Day Nineteen. Gluten Free Pop Tarts.

Day Nineteen.

My son has been asking me for weeks to find him a gluten free pop tart. We searched all over for organic, gluten free pop tarts and could not find them! At one point he looked at me and said, “Mommy, you can make a recipe!”. So that is just what I did! I made him organic, gluten free pop tarts. I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty they were! I hope your gluten free taste buds are happy.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c. organic gluten free pancake/ baking mix (Plus a little extra for dusting)
2 T. raw sugar
2 organic eggs
1/2 c. organic all natural shortening or butter
pinch of salt
organic strawberry jam

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all the ingredients except the jam together in a medium bowl. Mix until just incorporated. Spread out on a floured surface and roll out to 1/2 inch. It will be very sticky! Use flour to keep it from sticking.

You want it to be thicker than a pie crust, gluten free dough does not rise like gluten dough.

Cut out your rectangles and transfer to greased cookie sheet. Spread 1 T. of jam in center.

TIP: Put jam into a plastic bag and cut the tip off. Pipe it around the edges and then do a generous glob in the center.

Once all jam is piped, place the tops on the pop tarts. Use a fork and gently press around the edges. Put a few holes on the top for venting.

Bake for 15-17 minutes until lightly browned. Let them cool completely. I stored them in the refrigerator to keep them firm. Gluten free dough is so crumbly! They are great toasted or plain.

It made 7 pop tarts.

  1. Remember his GF baking tip: for every 1 c. of gluten flour used, add 1/2t. xanthan gum! You’ll find your baked goods far less crumbly. xoxo, NanaK
