I grew up never being allowed to eat pop tarts because they were full of sugar, dairy and gluten, so I decided to create my own version of the classic cinnamon and sugar pop tart… and man did they turn out good!!
I love coming up with recipes that are nutrient rich and made with only real foods. I decided to add in Lion’s Mane for an extra boost. These pop tarts are a perfect afternoon snack alongside your favorite cup of coffee, as an after dinner sweet treat, or just because.
Hope you enjoy!!
(makes six tarts)
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1 cup oat flour
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. Lion's Mane
2 eggs (to make vegan, sub 2 flax eggs)
cinnamon + sugar filling
1/2 tsp. coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbs. almond butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheet with parchment paper
Add all pastry ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine until a dough forms, then set the dough in the fridge to chill for 15 minutes or until you can roll out without it being sticky
While the dough chills, add the filling ingredients into a small bowl and combine
Remove dough from the fridge and roll out in between two sheets of parchment paper, until its about 1/4 inch and can slice into twelve rectangles total
Add one teaspoon of the filling mixture onto six of the rectangles, then lay the remaining dough on top and seal lightly with a fork
Poke a few holes in the top of each, bake for 15 minutes or until golden
Let cool for a few minutes, then top with Prash or a drizzle of coconut butter (recommended for sweeter pop tarts)
A note from Sun Potion on our Prash
Inspired by Chyawanprash made in the Ayurvedic tradition, this blend of tonic herbs, extracts and adaptogens is held together by honey and ghee, acting as a carrier for the herbs so that they can be absorbed more easily in the body. Almost like a jam of sorts, but with way more nutrients and benefits, this sticky rich tonic ambrosia boasts minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, and Selenium, and is rich in amino acids. Loaded with organic and wild-harvested herbs sourced by Sun Potion, the Prash contains Mucuna Pruriens, Ashwagandha Pine Pollen, He Shou Wu, Astragalus and more. For more information on these individual herbs, you can click on any listed above and read more. Though recipes may differ as there are now a variety of prash blends, the core benefits of Prash are what unites them all. Some of the benefits may include tissue rejuvenation, supporting a healthy immune response, youthfulness, promoting overall strength and energy, and helping to tonify (increase the available energy of) the reproductive system.
