Ok, I’ve tried to come up with a doughnut recipe and well, I am NOT having any luck. I think it’s a sign from the universe that I need to take a break from sweets and start sharing some entrees and side dishes instead.

Anyhow, back to my failed doughnut attempt that lead to my sticky rice recipe and this kick-butt amazing Gluten-free Pop Tart recipe.

One of absolute favorite things about living in Portland is the proximity to so many berries. They are also cheap which is even better. I went a little berry crazy at my local farm stand and bought two flats of raspberries to freeze and make into jam. These were a little more tart than my last flat so I did end up adding some maple syrup to the recipe to account for this.

Now if you don’t want to make your own filling, simply replace it with your favorite jam. However, I like to control how much sugar is going into our treats and you can make these a low sugar pop tart if you choose to.

I’m pretty sure that I always had a pop tart in my lunch box as a kid, and when this baby came out of the oven and I took my first bite, I knew that this would be a future treat in the Little’s lunch box.

Are these pop tart vegan?

Yes! They are and will work for those also following and AIP diet.

  1. For the dough: In a medium sauce pan, add the water, ghee, maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt and bring to a boil. Remove from the stove top.
  2. Add in the tapioca flour and mix with a spoon until combined.
  3. Then add in the mashed banana and coconut flour and mix until you have a dough.
  4. Set aside.
  5. For the raspberry filling: In a medium sauce pan add the raspberries, water, vanilla, sea salt and maple syrup and cook on medium heat for 35 - 40 minutes. It should reduce by half.
  6. Take the dough and roll it out between two sheets of parchment paper until the dough is 1/4". Cut into rectangles and spoon 2 tbsps of raspberry filling onto one rectangle and cover with another rectangle. You should have 12 rectangles - roughly 2" - 3". You might have extra dough which works great for thumbprints.
  7. Bake on a piece of parchment paper in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Enjoy!

I was not able to get the dough to be a thick enough consistency to roll our even after adding extra tapioca and coconut flours. It was like a thick paste. Does it thicken up if you leave it to cool?

I would let it rest a minute. Sometimes it take a minute for coconut flour to thicken up.

So glad to find this fun recipe! There are so many things I can think of to fill these with, one being no’mato sauce, nutritional yeast, and sausage for AIP compliant “pizza pockets”. Another would be to fill it with meat for bierocks. Thank you so much!

These are so delicious! There were none left to freeze. I enjoyed the hint of banana flavor in the dough. I doubled the recipe and added an egg. I used strawberry jam & I'm excited to try blueberry next. Thank you so much for this low carb gluten free pop tart❤️

Thanks for the reply! If I would like to sub applesauce for mashed bananas, how many apples do i need to make how many cups worth?

Altogether, there should be 12 finished bars or 12 separate rectangles prior? I ask because I wanna know whether to double the quantity or not if it ends up being very little.
