Easy Pop Tarts – GF non-GMO

Personally, I dread cooking. But I love pop tarts, and I don’t love store-bought products’ added soy, sugars, corn, etc… that’s how this post happened. I’m so delighted about how this experiment worked out.

If you are like me, and you like to eat gluten-free but don’t like the rice fillers, I hope you will enjoy this recipe.

Easy Pop Tarts / Folded Pastries

Makes 4-6 pastries.

1/4 cup organic sorghum flour
1/8 cup gluten-free oat flour
1/8 cup organic buckwheat flour
1/8 cup potato starch or green bean starch
1/8 cup tapioca starch
1/8 cup arrowroot flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder ( I make my own without cornstarch)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthan gum or 1 egg or 1 Tbsp ground flax seed
1 Tbsp sweetener (ex: coconut sugar or jaggery or brown sugar) – omit for more savory pastries
1/2 cup frozen butter-flavored shortening (I use Nutiva’s version)
4oz organic apple sauce

Also, have your flavoring/filling* on hand, 1/2 – 1 Tbsp for each pop tart.

Preheat oven to  400°F.

In a bowl, blend all dry ingredients together well.

Cut in shortening with pastry cutter until well blended.

With a large fork, mix in applesauce and dribbles of water (a tablespoon or so at a time as needed) to form dough. Try not to handle the dough too much.

Between sheets of plastic wrap, roll out dough to a rectangular sheet a little less than a quarter inch thick.

Remove top plastic wrap. With a fork, carve lines in the pastry to make long rectangles (ex: 3″x7″).

Spread 1/2-1 Tbsp of filling*  on the bottom half of each rectangle, leaving a quarter inch bare margin around the edges. Fold the top half of the long rectangles down over the flavored half to form a small pastry. Press the open edges together with fingers or with a fork. (Seal the edges with water if you want. I didn’t and the pastries were fine.)

Lay each pastry on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Poke each pastry with a fork three or four times to make vent holes in the tops.

Bake at 400-425°F for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool on the counter for 10 minutes before eating.

*My favorite filling is raspberry jam, but other options include brown sugar and cinnamon, or chocolate, or other flavored jams.  You could also use sliced ham and cheese in the middle if you wanted, or other fillings.  These can also be glazed, but I prefer them without glaze.

Please tell me if you make modifications to the recipe that you like. I love new delicious ideas.

Enjoy!
