grain free pop tarts.


i’ve tried to make grain free pop tarts many times with little success. they had either fallen apart or tasted like crap. it’s clearly about the dough (since the filling is a no-brainer), and successful dough I have finally achieved. i fed these to a housefull of rockers who happily ate them for breakfast. more pictures here.


Bangin’ Pop Tarts


CRUST

2 cups almond meal
1/2 cup coconut flour
dash of salt
2 tbsp. grade A maple syrup
2 eggs
1/4 cup spectrum naturals organic all vegetable shortening
1 egg white for a wash

FILLING

lemon curd (i like this one)
any jam of your choice
chocolate hazelnut butter



PREHEAT OVEN TO 350˚ F. 

METHOD:

In a large bowl combine almond flour, coconut flour and salt. Work out the lumps with your hands and combine until smooth. Make a well in in the center of the dry flour, and add the maple syrup, eggs, and shortening. Mix until you have a ball of dough that sticks together, but is still a bit crumbly. Place your dough between two large sheets of plastic wrap and roll out. When dough is rolled to your desired thickness, use a pizza cutter cut out squares. You will have to repeat the rolling and cutting step a few times to utilize all of your dough.  Place your filling in the center of one square and top with another. I use a spatula at this point to move the dough around. Seal your tart with a fork around the sides, so your filling doesn't leak out, and brush with the egg wash.  Place your tarts on a jelly roll pan and bake for about 17/20 minutes, turning your pan half way through. Enjoy!

pumpkin pie and butt whaaaat?




hi. i started a little tumblr collection of my recipes and other peoples recipes i've tried and liked. so far i have 3 followers, 2 of which have blogs about butt sex and sluts. ummm sweet! as usual my love/ hate relationship with the internet rages on. (i took a huge break from technology this summer, while in the mountains, and it was great.) i've been cooking a lot lately, and painting, so life feels right. i'm really excited for december, (and this afternoon for that matter) and a plethora of visitors coming my way... cheers!!!
