For the Dough:

  • 2 3/4 cups gluten-free pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoon pure organic vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pure agave
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

For the Filling:

  • 3 tablespoon pure agave
  • 2 tablespoon ground gluten-free oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon pure organic vanilla extract
  • 1 pound frozen strawberries thawed and chopped

For the Glaze:

  • Organic honey to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Combine all the dough ingredients in a large mixing bowl and knead, using your hands, until the dough is firm but pliable. If the mixture is too dry or crumbly, add a teaspoon of almond milk at a time and knead the dough really well before deciding if you need to add another teaspoon. Otherwise, you’ll need to add more flour if the mixture got too sticky.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the filling ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk them nicely. Set aside.
  • Get the dough and divide it into three parts, working on one part at a time, while the remaining parts are covered in plastic. Alternatively, you may choose to refrigerate or freeze the remaining ⅔ of dough for later use.
  • Roll out ⅓ of the dough using a rolling pin, until it reaches ⅛ inch thick. Any countertops will do but feel free to roll them on parchment paper for easy clean-up.
  • Then, using a paring knife, cut the dough into 2x4-inch rectangles. For ⅓ of the dough, you’re most likely to have 8 rectangles.
  • Using a teaspoon, scoop some filling into the center of dough rectangles. Don’t fill all the way to the edges and only fill 4 rectangles out of 8.
  • Use the 4 empty rectangles to cover the filled ones. Press down and crimp the edges using a fork to seal the pop tarts. If they leak, just try to seal them the best that you can. After all, that’s what our parchment paper is for.
  • Transfer them into a greased sheet pan without parchment paper and cover with plastic wrap while you’re working on the remaining ⅔ of the dough if you’re cooking all of them. Otherwise, don’t cover it with plastic wrap and bake the 4 pop-tarts in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until the dough is cooked and golden brown.
  • Once done, take it out of the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Using an offset spatula, remove the pop-tarts from the sheet pan and transfer to a serving plate. Drizzle some honey on top and serve.


  • This recipe calls for frozen strawberries since it provides a higher water content than the fresh ones.
  • This recipe is refrigerator and freezer-friendly too. However, when it’s time to reheat them, don’t use a toaster and instead, microwave them for roughly 10 seconds to warm up.
