Ingredients

Strawberry Chia Jam:

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dark cherries
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or to taste
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or to taste
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

Pop-tarts:

Lemon Glaze:

Instructions

Chia Jam:

  • In a saucepot, heat the cherries and strawberries until they start to bubble and get syrupy. Once super soft, mash them with a potato masher until the mixture is jammy, loose, and with some visible little bits of fruit in it.
  • Add in the lemon juice and maple syrup, and taste. Adjust the lemon and maple syrup depending on the sweetness of your fruit.
  • Take the mixture off of the heat, transfer it to a container and add in the chia seeds. Allow the mixture to set for at least 20 minutes, or until it thickens up. You’ll have lots of extra jam so you can use it on toast or on oatmeal throughout the week.

Pop-tarts:

  • In a large bowl, mix flours, salt and sugar. Cut in the cold coconut oil with a pastry cutter or fork until you see tiny pea-shaped pieces in the dough.
  • Drizzle in the vanilla and one tablespoon at a table, add in the ice cold water. It should be moist enough that you can form it into a ball without it flaking away, but not sticky.
  • Cut the dough in half and lightly flour your surface and rolling pin. Roll out the dough to just a few millimeters thick then cut into 5 cm by 7 cm rectangles. Place the rectangles on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper.
  • Place one heaping teaspoon of jam onto half of the dough rectangles in the centre. Then wet your finger and moisten all around the perimeter (around the jam). Top with another rectangle, and using your fork, crimp the edges to seal. Poke three sets of three holes into the top of the pop tart with your fork. Continue with remaining pop-tarts. Place the baking sheet in the fridge to set for 20 minutes.
  • Heat the Philips Airfryer to 400 F. Add four pop-tarts to the fryer basket and set the timer for 10 minutes. Remove and repeat with the remaining pop-tarts until they’re all cooked. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes.

Lemon Glaze:

  • In a bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  • Spread about a teaspoon of the icing on each of the pop-tarts and decorate with your favourite sprinkles and sugars. Allow the icing to set and enjoy!
