I actually hate pop tarts. Is that un American? I just can't handle them - and usually sweet sugary things, breakfast and me don't go together.
I'm not sure what about this recipe caught my eye - but I suspect it was simply the challenge of a) making homemade pop tarts and b) making a healthy version of one. I'm glad I did - this recipe did not disappoint. I bet one of these is better for you than a bowl of Wheaties! ;)
This is another of my "clean eating" recipes - I know, I know but don't stop reading! If you're going to make a delicious pastry for breakfast why not make one that's about as nutritious as they come? The pastry crust is so flaky, you'll wonder who snuck the butter in when you weren't looking.
Head on over to The Gracious Pantry for more information and her recipe. I adapted mine ever, ever, ever so slightly.
Clean Eating Pop Tarts
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup safflower oil
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 lb. frozen strawberries, defrosted and chopped
Roll out dough to approximately 1/8” thickness. Cut rectangles in dough – either with a knife or a cookie cutter. Add 2-3 tsp of filling to one rectangle, cover with another rectangle of dough and press the ends together with a fork.
Eat plain, warm out of the oven or drizzle honey on top.
