Homemade Cereal Apricot Pop-Tarts!
It's apricot season!! I mean, it's almost over so I need to share these treats with you before it's too late: Apricot Pop-Tarts!! My homemade Pop-Tarts contain cereal both in the dough (oat) and in the glaze (Orange Sour Patch Kids cereal crumbles) and I think they taste even better than the original ones. If you want to make them too you can check out the recipe below. Also here the other homemade Pop-Tarts I've already shared: Blue Blueberry Pop-Tarts Pink Berry Pop-Tarts INGREDIENTS: 104g coconut oil 161g maple syrup or agave nectar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 egg 256g all purpose flour 90g rolled or quick oats 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder --- FILLING --- Apricot jam --- BLUE CEREAL GLAZE --- 42g confectioners' sugar 1.25 teaspoon milk Orange Sour Patch Kids cereal crumbles Dried apricots* DIRECTIONS: Cream the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and egg, with an electric mixer. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to your creamed ingredients, a little at a time, with an electric mixer, until it is well incorporated. Wrap dough in plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Once chilled, roll out on wax paper, using flour where necessary so it doesn’t stick to your rolling pin, or the counter. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Cut out the dough into 9 x 6 cm rectangles. Spread apricot jam on 6 rectangles leaving dough edge free and cover them with a plain rectangle. Seal the edges with a fork and make small holes on the surface. Bake for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool on the baking sheet. Make the glaze combining sugar and milk in a small bowl until you get a dense consistency. Pour the glaze on top of the tarts with a spoon, garnish with dried apricots (I cut out small stars using a star-shaped cookie cutter) and sprinkle with Orange Sour Patch Kids cereal crumbles. Enjoy :) RECIPE NOTES: I used dried apricots because they are easier to handle but fresh apricots are great too, just make sure they are not too ripe or watery. If the dough starts to fall apart put it back in the fridge to chill and then it will be easier to work. You can freeze the dough for a month or so. RECIPE CARD: If you make it let me know! :)
