GF Blueberry Toaster Pastry

These Toaster Pastries are designed after Pop Tarts, but these ones are Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Healthier, and Homemade!
What could be better then homemade delicious breakfast pastries that you can feel good about eating giving to your kids! ;)
Of course you can make any flavor toaster pastry you would like, and you can frost them and add sprinkles on top as well, but I made unfrosted (because I didn't want to add sugar) Blueberry Toaster Pastries because it is still July, and July is Blueberry Month! :)

I got the basic recipe from the blog Learning How to Cook...Gluten Free but if you know me, you know that I can not stick to a recipe, and I just have to change it... In this case I only changed it a little bit, but I am going to post my recipe anyway.

Gluten Free, Sugar Free Blueberry Toaster Pastries
Makes about 6

For Pastry Dough
  • 1 1/2 Cups (Bob's Red Mill) All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup (I Can't Believe It's Not Butter) Olive Oil Spread/Margarine 
  • 3 Tbsp Cold Water
For Filling
  • 1/2 Cup Frozen Wild Blueberries (Unsweetened)
  • 3 Tbsp (Polander) Blueberry All Fruit Spreadable Fruit with Fiber 
  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch mixed with 1 Tbsp Cold Water
  1. Mix Flour and Salt Together in a bowl.
  2. Cut Butter Spread into the flour until it's all mixed and crumbly.
  3. Add cold water and form into a dough.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In the mean time start making the filling!
  1. In a saucepan combine the frozen blueberries and the blueberry fruit spread.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat and mash the blueberries with a fork.
  3. After the sauce thickens, add the cornstarch/water mixture and stir well. Let the sauce thicken even more before pouring it into a bowl and setting it aside to cool.

I wish I made more of the filling because it is sooo tasty, and it would be great on top of waffles or pancakes!
Next you should prepare the serface you will roll the dough on. I used parchment paper so it would be easy clean up!
  1. Preheat your oven to 450 Degrees F
  2. (GF) Flour the surface and the rolling pin you will be working on.
  3. Place Dough on top of the floured surface and flour the top so it doesn't stick.
 4. Roll it out into a large even rectangle.
 I was not able to make it a large even rectangle in my tiny workspace...
 5. Take a pizza cutter or a knife and cut it into even rectangles about the size of pop tarts.
6. Place half of the rectangles onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and spoon about 1 Tbsp of the filling into the center, being careful not to get too close to the edges of the dough.
7. Cover the filling with the other half of the dough rectangles and crimp the edges closed with a fork.
8. Bake for about 10 minutes or until slightly browned on the edges and the dough is firm and cooked through.
9. Let cool slightly before enjoying. If there are any leftover you can reheat them in a toaster oven (or even try a toaster) for about 10-20 seconds. They reheat quickly, so be careful not to burn yourself.
