Vegan Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts

Vegan Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts

Made with Let's Do Organic Cornstarch by @feastingonfruit

Get ready to mind blown over these pop tart bars! They're everyone’s favorite cozy spiced pop tart flavor but with no pastry crimping required!

Picture gooey sweet brown sugar (or coconut sugar!) filing baked inside two layers of buttery crust and topped with a drizzly cinnamon glaze!

This recipe is completely vegan and gluten-free made with almond flour, coconut flour, and Let’s Do Organic Cornstarch for the perfect dough.

We're going to start by whisking together almond flour, cornstarch, coconut, flour, and salt. Then we'll add in maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla until a dough forms.

Then we'll use a fork to mix together the brown sugar filling ingredients until its wet sand consistency and we'll sprinkle a generous layer of the filling on top of the bottom shortbread layer.

The final step is carefully placing the rolled out dough on top of the filling and baking until golden brown.

We'll finish these nostalgic bites by spreading a cinnamon glaze on top of the bars.

Finally, refrigerate until glaze is set, then slice and enjoy!
