Gluten Free Dairy Free Homemade Strawberry Poptarts

GFDF Homemade Strawberry Poptarts


Lisa @ Onceamonthmeals.com


  • 1.5 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 0.5 teaspoons salt
  • 0.5 teaspoons xantham gum
  • 0.5 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 8 Tablespoons dairy free butter
  • 0.5 teaspoons vanilla (ensure gluten free)
  • 3 Tablespoons applesauce
  • 4 Tablespoons ice water
  • 0.5 cups strawberry jam
  • 2 Tablespoons almond milk
  • 0.5 cups powdered sugar


In a large bowl combine flour, salt, xantham gum, cinnamon, and sugar. Using your hands, cut in the dairy free butter, then add vanilla and applesauce until dough is crumbly. Gradually add the ice water and combine until it is absorbed, being careful not to over work the dough. Form dough into a ball and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. After refrigerated, roll dough out to 1/4″ thickness onto a lightly floured surface. Using a pizza cutter, roll out sixteen equal sized rectangles. You may need to re-roll to cut additional rectangles (using a ruler will help you to get precise, straight lines). Place a single layer of rectangle shaped dough pieces on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Place 2 teaspoons strawberry jam in the center of the each piece, then top with the remaining rectangles of dough. Using a fork, seal the edges of the pop tarts. Bake 350 for 20 minutes or just until tops start to turn golden brown. Allow pop tarts to cool completely. Meanwhile, combine almond milk and powdered sugar in a small bowl. Evenly spread glaze over the top of cooled pop tarts.

Freezing Directions:

Prepare per above directions then flash freeze. Divide among freezer bags, label and freeze. TO SERVE: Thaw. Reheat in microwave 30 seconds. Filling will be hot.

Servings:  4 (2 per serving)

    If I used regular flour in this recipe would I need the xantham gum, or is that only if I use gluten free flour?

    Can i use coconut oil instead of dairy free butter?

    • Lisa says:

      Melinda – If you do try this – please let us know how it turns out! You can always use butter or margarine as well.

    • Krista says:

      Melinda, did you try using coconut oil instead of DF butter? I’m curious about your results.

      • Meredith says:

        I tried this with coconut oil today with good results. The dough was very hard upon removal from the refrigerator and the dough was a little crumbly, but if you don’t mind a rustic look to your pastries, they turned out nicely!

        • Lisa says:

          Meredith – Thanks so much for sharing your adjustments. Coconut oil would be a great sub for the dairy free butter! I have made these quite a few time for my family, and I did find that I had to let the dough sit for a few minutes after removing from refrigerator to be able to roll out.
