    pumpkin spice pop tarts

    On one hand,we love an inventive healthy re-make of classic junk food. On the other hand, this kind of recipe can perturb junk food purists to no end. Sounds like the perfect thing to bring to a family gathering?

    Meet The Source is a plant-based raw dessert company in Southern California that’s caught our eye with their gorgeous and good-for-you vegan and gluten-free desserts. We recently asked them for a fun recipe and they shared this stunner. It’s a take on their classic strawberry rose pop tart (shown), which is, of course, a tightly held secret recipe!

    Healthy Pumpkin Spice Pop-Tarts

    Ingredients:

    Filling:
    3/4 cup pumpkin puree
    10 medjool dates (you want the soft ones, otherwise soak dates)
    ½ tsp vanilla powder
    1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice

    Dough:

    ½ cup almond flour
    ½ cup raw brazil nuts (or any nut of your choice)
    1 cup GF oats (finely processed)
    ½ cup flax seeds
    ½ tsp vanilla extract
    ¼ cup cashew butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
    ½ cup maple syrup
    ¼ tsp sea salt

    Directions:

    Blend all filling ingredients in a blender until smooth.

    In a food processor, pulse brazil nuts, flax seeds and oats together until you get a flour. Add in all other dough ingredients until a dough forms. Refrigerate for 15 min.

    Roll out dough between two sheets of parchment paper to about a ¼-in thickness. Cut into rectangles and add filling. Do not spread filling too close to the edge of pop-tart as it will make it harder to assemble. Place another rectangle over the top and use a fork to press down edges. Dehydrate at 118 degrees for 2 hours.
