Delicious raspberry jam-filled, gluten-free, vegan pastries with a hidden source of protein ....
Being able to quickly make breakfast is essential most mornings of the week. So when the students asked to make "Pop Tarts" when we cooked together, I gladly accepted the challenge. This recipe is low in sugars, high in fiber, and has a little bit of protein.
These can easily be made in advance and heated up in the morning for a tasty breakfast on the go. You might just want to make a double batch while you are at it.....
