Fun-Sized Mini Poptart Cookies

IMG_9984

These are like 2 x 3 inch sized poptart cookies. You can always make them bigger if you like.

I made these on Monday, when I didn’t have school :’) I love mondays.

Why are these poptarts better than the storebought ones? 
THESE poptarts do not include the preservatives, food dyes, trans fat. NO hydrogenated oils = trans fat. These poptarts include real ingredients, real fruit, whatever fillings you like. Delicious, healthy and whole ingredients.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup plus 3 tbsp spelt flour (You can use all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour too. For whole wheat pastry flour, it’ll be more soft & requires a bit more oil)
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp honey/agave/pure maple syrup
3/4 packet of organic stevia (or you can add an extra tbsp of the liquid sweetener)
2 tbsp coconut oil/vegetable oil
1 tbsp milk or 1 tbsp more oil (I used almond milk. If you used an extra tbsp of the liquid sweeter, don’t add this option)

Directions:
1. Gather your ingredients & get ready!

2. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, stevia) and stir together. Then combine the wet ingredients (vanilla extract, your syrup/agave/honey, oil, extra oil/milk) in another bowl & stir together.

3. Put wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl & mix together

4. It should look like… brown sugar after it’s completely mixed, haha!

5. Scoop it into 1 large gallon bag, or 2 quart sized bags. Roll it into a big thin layer of dough. Let it chill for at least 20 minutes (or else poptarts will be crispy).

6. When dough is chilling, gather the fillings together & preheat oven to 350 F. I’m going to make peanut butter w/ blueberry jam, apple cinnamon sugar & chocolate poptarts.

This is diced apples, 1 tbsp dark brown cane sugar & 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

7. After it is done chilling, cut the ziploc bag open with scissors.

8. Put it onto a plate and cut into small squares. Oops, I failed at the ends. If this happens to you, get the end pieces and smush it all into a ball. Then put it in another ziploc bag to be rolled out into a thin layer again. You should have around 28 squares, making 14 poptart cookies.

9. Put it on your baking tray. Put your desired fillings in the middle of each rectangle. Make sure you don’t completely fill up the whole rectangle.

10. Close it up with another layer of dough on top.

11. Put it in your heated 350 F oven for 14-18 minutes.

Enjoy 🙂 You can make a strawberry frosting to put on top by microwaving a strawberry for 20 seconds & then mixing it with 1/2 cup powdered sugar. If you keep mixing, it will turn into icing. It should be light pink.

Here is the apple cinnamon sugar poptart cookie.

Peanut butter & blueberry jam poptart cookie.

Stacks on stacks. I just spread some raspberry chia jam, chocolate or peanut butter on top.

When cooled, place in a plastic container for soft poptarts or in a glass container for crispy poptarts. Or you could always just eat it all and not put it in any container….. JK eat in moderation heheh 🙂 They taste better than they look btw.. 😛

This is not my recipe, but Chocolate Covered Katie’s recipe! I saw her recipe & I HAD to make this. I have such a long list of things I want to make… I need to stop looking up recipes & bookmarking them. I’m a college student so I got things to study for & got places to be 😛
