Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Healthy Pop Tarts. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

This recipe calls for oat flour which is a naturally gluten free. I have not tested this recipe with any other flours yet.

When yogurt is added to flour it creates a really delicious dough. You can use plant-based yogurt like I did from Forager to keep this recipe vegan, or greek yogurt for an added boost of protein.

A touch of maple syrup sweetens the dough. You may also use honey, agave or date syrup.

Baking powder is going to help these pop-tarts rise to have a soft and fluffy texture.

Salt helps balance out all the flavors.

Plant based or regular milk adds to the texture of the dough.

The icing is made with powdered sugar and your choice of milk.

Finish off these pop-tarts with your favorite sprinkles, I used the ones from Watkins which are non-toxic.

all the ingredients that you need to make these healthy pop tarts in individual ramekins.

How To Make

ONE: Start by making the dough by combining the oat flour, salt and baking powder together in a medium bowl. Add in the yogurt and maple syrup next and mix until a dough is formed.

TWO: Flour a clean working surface with more oat flour and knead the dough for a few minutes. Then, roll it out into a rectangle, about 1/4″ thick, and cut out 6 equal rectangles to make 3 health pop tarts.

THREE: Add three of the dough slices to a prepared baking dish that’s lined with parchment paper, and then add on about 1 tbsp of your favorite jam to the center.

FOUR: Add on the top half of the dough and using a fork, mend the edges together. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.

FIVE: Make the frosting by combining the powdered sugar and milk together. Pour over the pop-tarts and finish off with sprinkles and enjoy!!

Tips And Tricks

Depending on the type of yogurt you use, your dough could look different, so if your dough is too sticky to work with, add in more oat flour, 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency.

Use a pizza cutter to cut out your rectangles for the pop-tarts. This is quick and easy to use.

Feel free to customize your pop-tarts by adding in your favorite jam. I personally love using my homemade chia seed jam.

How To Serve And Store

Serve these healthy pop tarts warm and with a cup of coffee or tea.

Store pop-tarts in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 2-3 days. Reheat in the air fryer for best results.

Taste And Texture

If you are hoping for a breakfast pastry that tastes exactly like traditional pop tarts, you’ll be a little disappointed as these don’t have that traditional flaky, cookie-like texture due to the ingredients that are used.

Texture-wise, these are more sturdy and chewy, but still have that sweet delicious filling and icing glaze on the top.

Taste-wise, they are sweet, loaded with berry flavor (from the filling), and the vanilla icing exterior.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use all purpose flour instead of oat flour?

Yes! The texture will be fluffier and softer too, however, this recipe won’t be gluten free anymore.

Can I use a 1:1 gluten free flour instead?

I have not tested this myself yet so I can’t say for sure, but if it’s a 1:1 swap I don’t see why not. If you give it a go, please let me know in the comments below!

How can I reheat these pop-tarts for the next day?

Healthy pop-tarts are best reheated in the air fryer. Alternatively, you can use the microwave.

I was skeptical at first but these are very tasty! I had to add some milk to the dough and I didn’t have powdered sugar so I had to improvise with the icing. They came out chewy and sweet and delicious!
