Healthy Pop Tarts with Strawberry Chia Filling!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c almond flour, finely ground
  • 1/4 c tapioca flour
  • 32g vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla 30% OFF code PBHCOCO)
  • 2 tbsp. light butter or coconut oil, melted for vegan/paleo
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
    Filling
  • 3/4 c fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup or agave
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
    Frosting
  • 16g vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/8 tsp. beet root powder

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, stir together almond flour, tapioca flour and protein. Melt butter or coconut oil and stir into dry ingredients. Add almond milk and stir until a dough forms. Set dough a side while you make your filling.
  3. If using fresh strawberries, wash thoroughly before cutting off stems and chopping into small pieces. Add strawberries, syrup, water and lemon juice to a small frying pan and turn on medium heat. Once bubbles form, turn down heat to just a simmer. Cover and let simmer for 3-5 minutes or until strawberries are soft enough to smash with a spatula.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in chia seeds. Let sit while you prepare your pop tarts.
  5. Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough into 2x2 inch squares and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough until all dough has been used. Recipe will make 10 squares. Add 1 tablespoon of filling into the center of 5 of the squares. Place the remaining squares on top of the filling. Use a fork to crimp the edges together and poke holes in the top so the heat can escape. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  6. Once cooled, mix frosting ingredients together and glaze pop tarts. Decorate with sprinkles and enjoy!

Notes

You can reduce calories by using Sugar-Free Maple Syrup instead of 100% pure maple syrup.

Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Puppy Chow

Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Puppy Chow

Please tell me that I’m not the only one that’s addicted to 7-11 coffee. It’s a problem, I know–I’m dealing with it the best I know how (AKA, drinking it every single day of my life). But being an Exclusive Blend addict isn’t my only problem. Every time I walk into a 7-11 and head for their coffee bar ( yes, coffee bar, I needed to class it up a little) I am forced to walk past the snacks, which is impossible to avoid because they are EVERYWHERE. Every single day my eye is caught by one thing in particular, Muddy Buddies.

I decided today is the day that I make those delicious Muddy Buddies my own using my favorite peanut butter, a little chocolate and lots of protein powder!
