Low FODMAP strawberry pop tarts

I wanted to alter this recipe as a weekend treat.

Low FODMAP strawberry pop tarts
Makes 6 bars (smaller than bought pop tarts, but much more filling as it's a whole food). 160 calories each, 8g sugar

The finished product 


 Ready to be baked


Homemade oat flour



Ingredients

Dough

  • 1.5 cups oats blended on food processor til fine
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tablespoons coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 1 egg, divided
  • 3 teaspoons or so strawberry jam
Icing 
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon strawberry jam
  • Splash of hot water

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius (330 degrees farenheit). Line a tray with baking paper. 
  2. Mix all dough ingredients except egg yolk and jam into a dough. 
  3. Spread half of dough onto the baking sheet. The dough will be quite sticky, but that's ok. Just spread it into a square. 
  4. Top with a layer of jam. Spread the remaining layer on top carefully. Add a splash of water to egg yolk and brush it over the top. 
  5. Bake 12-15 min til golden. 
  6. Wait til cool-ish, mix icing ingredients together and ice. 

Notes
It isn't necessary to add strawberry jam into the icing, I just wanted to make it look pretty and increase the strawberry taste. To make crispier, ensure the dough is thin. Icing is quite sticky. Add more icing sugar if you want it less sticky. Less sugar was more of a priority for me as each bar already has 2 tsp of total sugar (8g)
