For a longer amount of time than I would like to admit, I lived on pop tarts. I’m not just talking for a convenient snack, I mean breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a bowl of crushed pop tarts topped with whipped cream and sprinkles for dessert. My diet has definitely changed a bit since those days, but every now and then I still get a craving for a classic strawberry pop tart. If that happens, I usually just buy a pop tart, throw it in the toaster, stuff it in my mouth, and move on with my day. But, if you do want to have a pop tart for every meal and not explode from a sugar high, try making these high protein, no refined sugar pop tarts. Unlike most store brand pop tarts, these do not contain gelatin and are easily made vegan, so everyone can enjoy them.

This recipe also doesn’t involve hours making pastry dough. To simplify the process and add some extra protein, fiber, and nutrients, I used whole grain lavash wraps. Each wrap has about 100 calories and 6 grams of protein. They’re a great option for wraps, burritos, and even pop tarts.

These pop tarts also get a protein boost from the Greek yogurt and chia seeds in the filling. If you’re vegan, you can easily substitute the Greek yogurt with a vegan alternative like coconut or soy yogurt.
