Clean & Healthy Home Made Pop Tarts

I adventured to find a healthy clean breakfast option for my son! I pay $2.99 for a package of 6 pop tarts which is wildly expensive but I do it because having a clean healthy option for a quick breakfast food for my son/children is so worth it!
I googled lots of recipes to get a general idea of how to go about making a pastry crust. I did create my own recipe and let me just say "We ALL love them!" The kids were like "Wow, Mommy nice job these are SO Good!"
Pop Tart Crust Recipe & Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup of Unbleached Flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 5 tbsp Coconut spread ** It's milder and richer than butter with less saturated fat. Plus it has a natural sweetness that's perfect for baking**
  • 1 tbsp Agave
  • 3 tbsp Milk (almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup of plain Greek Yogurt
Blend Ingredients and then refrigerate if desired.  Roll out onto floured surface. Use a knife to cute into rectangles or for child fun you can use a large shaped cookie cutter (as you can see I chose a heart shape ♥)  
Fill with your favorite filling  (recipes below)
