Healthy Homemade Pop Tarts

Try freezing after baking for a sweet treat later on! Makes 5 servings,
or 16 mini pop tarts (2 1/4 x 3 inch rectangles).


1/2 cup vanilla egg white or whey protein
3/4 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
3 Tbsp Swerve (or a few drops of stevia)
2 to Tbsp water (just enough to hold dough together)


9 Tbsp Homemade Nutella
9 Tbsp Homemade Nut Butter
9 Tbsp jelly


1 tsp cherry/vanilla/almond extract or other like apple extract
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup confectioners Swerve (or powdered erythritol and 1/2 tsp stevia

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (200 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, almond flour, baking soda and
salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the
butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the almond milk (or water)
and sweetener to form a stiff dough.

On parchment paper, place 10 balls of dough a few inches apart. Shape
with hands into rectangle shapes (size of a PopTart).

Beat the egg and brush it over the entire surface of the rectangles.
Even the "insides" of the tart; the egg is to help glue the lid on.
Place a heaping tablespoon of filling into the center of each rectangle,
keeping a bare 1/2 inch perimeter around it. Place a second rectangle of
dough atop the first, using your fingertips to press firmly around the
pocket of filling, sealing the dough well on all sides. Press the tines
of a fork all around the edge of the rectangle. Repeat with remaining tarts.

Gently place the tarts on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking
sheet. Prick the top of each tart multiple times with a fork; you want
to make sure steam can escape, or the tarts will become fluffy pillows
instead of flat toaster pastries.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly
browned. Cool in oven to crisp up. While it bakes, prepare the glaze. In
a medium sized bowl, place the 1/2 cup coconut oil (it will melt in the
hot tea), and confectioners Swerve and mix well. Set aside to cool a
bit. Spread over Pop Tarts.
