In this post, I’m bringing you not one but two childhood classics wrapped up in an irresistible, single-serving recipe with PB&J Pop-Tarts!
In all honesty, I never had pop-tarts growing up. I have since been introduced, and I totally get the obsession. They’re freaking delicious! Plus, they’re so easy to snack on on-the-go (a lifesaver if you’re a busy mom like me).
However, I don’t love the long list of processed ingredients and high sugar content that comes with them. I knew I could do better, and – not to sound cocky – I did! This recipe is packed full of ooey, gooey filling with a flaky crust you actually won’t want to break the corners off of!
Plus, unlike the packaged varieties, these PB&J Pop-Tarts are made with vanilla protein powder, avocado oil, lower sugar raspberry chia jam, and peanut butter for a healthy, well-rounded breakfast, snack, or dessert that will keep you and your kiddos satisfied throughout the day.
Personally, I’m obsessed with Nuzest USA protein powders. Use code: thekellykathleen to save money and start your addiction, too. Orrr ( I guess) you can use any protein powder you prefer!
To get started, preheat your oven and line a baking sheet. Then, mix your dough ingredietns, and roll it out into a rectangle. Next, spoon your jam onto half of the rectangle, and flip the bare side on top to form your pop-tart.
Crimp the edges using a fork, and bake for 18-22 minutes. Once cooked, let your pop-tart cool completely and top with glaze.

PB&J Pop Tart
A healthier version of two childhood favorites, these gluten-free PB&J Pop-Tarts will be your new breakfast staple!
- 4 tbsp cup all-purpose flour use gluten-free equivalent for gluten-free
- 1 tbsp of smooth vanilla protein by Nuzest USA code: thekellykathleen
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 1/2 tbsp jam of choice I used my raspberry chia seed jam
- 1 tbsp organic peanut butter such as Georgia grinders
- 1 tbsp vegan butter melted
- 1-2 tbsp powdered sugar I used Lakanto
Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the dough ingredients together before rolling the dough out on the parchment paper until a rectangle forms. Mine was about 4 X 8 inches.
Spoon your jam of choice on one half of your rectangle making sure to leave a small rim around the edges.
Flip the bare side of your rectangle onto the jam side to form your pop tart.
Crimp the edges by using a fork.
Bake for 18-22 minutes.
Let cool completely before topping with the glaze. Or don’t wait. I never have been able to.
