Everything you love about the famous American breakfast, without everything you don’t. These homemade blueberry pop tarts provide the perfect sweet filling and flaky crust without refined sugar, gluten, or harmful additives. Finally a pop tart you can feel good about serving!
For some reason I really didn’t want to call these pop tarts. I am not sure why but I guess I didn’t want to be the zillionth person to make a homemade pop tart. I thought about calling them a million other things, but nothing really described them as well and I figured it was time to call it what it is- so I present to you my version of a healthy pop tart! And whatever you want to call them, they are absolutely delicious!
However, they truly are nothing like a pop tart. Because these are made with REAL fruit, are gluten free, vegan, don’t contain any of the weird chemicals or additives that I am sure store bought pop tarts are ridden with, AND they have zero refined sugar! (minus the glaze on top – but that is optional!)
The filling of these pop tarts is made with only three ingredients. Blueberries that provide antioxidants and phyonutrients, chia seeds that provide protein and omega 3s and then maple syrup that adds a low glycemic sweetener (you can also use agave or honey (not vegan) if you don’t have maple syrup!)
I will warn you, the crust is somewhat delicate. Once you have it rolled out it is going to be thin and you need to be careful with it so you don’t break it. So just be careful when moving it onto the cookie sheet. You could even assemble it there to be extra safe!
And I’ll be real honest, I forgot to pay too much attention to the proportions when I was making the glaze. But the ingredients listed below are all you need! So start with those proportions and just add more milk if you want it thinner and more powdered sugar if you want it thicker. It will be easy to adjust I promise!
This is a small batch recipe, it only makes about 3 or 4 pop tarts depending on how big you make them. So it is great for you and your hubby to enjoy Sunday brunch, prepping for some weekday meals, or just double or triple the recipe to have more to serve to family and friends! You could also pair them with my everything cauliflower bagels or egg muffins to have that sweet and savory combo.
