This Vegan Oreo Pop Tarts recipe will remind you of your favourite toaster pastries, but BETTER because they’re entirely homemade!
They’re a delicious chocolate pastry with a soft cream cheese, Oreo filling, topped with vanilla glaze and cookie crumbs. This is definitely a recipe which you can go back for seconds, even thirds….they’re THAT good! Vegan, no-egg, no-dairy and easy.
Vegan Oreo Pop Tarts
Leave the store bought pop tarts on the shelf and make your own homemade, gourmet version (I say gourmet as they taste like they’ve come out of a delicious high-end bakery). They may look somewhat technical, but let me tell you… they can be prepped, made and baking in the oven within 30 minutes. The chocolate ‘pie dough’ produces such a flaky and buttery pastry that melts in your mouth. It compliments the rich, Oreo cream cheese filling. To decorate the pop tart, they’re finished off with a thin vanilla glaze and cookie crumbles. Perfection in each bite. Keep reading to learn how to make them!
Ingredients you’ll need:
You’ll be very happy to hear, you only need 10 simple ingredients to make the best EVER homemade pop tarts. Make sure to jot these ingredients down for your next grocery shop! Remember, find the full recipe including quantities, method in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- All purpose / plain flour – As you don’t need the pastry to rise like cake batter, use plain flour. Sift it to make it clump free.
- Cocoa powder – The higher % cocoa powder you use, the richer the pop tarts will be.
- Caster sugar
- Dairy-free butter – My favourite vegan / dairy-free butter is Naturli Vegan Block and Flora Plant Butter.
- Ice-water – Basically water with some ice-cubes inside.
- Dairy-free cream cheese – You can use your favourite vegan / dairy-free cream cheese. My favourite is Violife.
- Icing sugar
- Vanilla extract – optional but makes the icing taste scrumptious.
- Oreo’s – You’ll want to blitz the Oreo’s in a mini food processor or blender so they’re in crumbs.
- Corn starch / corn flour
- Dairy-free milk – Milk is used to help stick the pasty halfs together. You can use any dairy-free milk, for example: soya, oat, almond or cashew.
How to make vegan Oreo pop tarts
Trust me, these homemade Oreo pop tarts are much easier to make than they may look! You essentially start off making 4 ingredient chocolate pie dough. You chill it until it’s firm, roll it out and cut it into rectangles. Don’t worry if the rectangles are perfect, they will still taste delicious none the less.
You will lay the rectangles out on a grease proof paper lined baking tray, spread the filling onto half of them and place the other halves on top, making a little pop tart sandwich. Crimp the edges with a fork and bake! It’s as easy as that. Make sure the pastry and filling is kept chilled at all time, this will make the pastry easier to cut out and the filling to pipe.
I like to freeze the pop tarts for 5-10 minutes before baking, this will keep the filling in and make for perfect pop tarts each and every time.
Oreo pop tart filling
You are going to crave the scrumptious cookies and cream pop tart filling. The filling contains only 4 simple ingredients – Oreos, dairy-free cream cheese, icing sugar and cornstarch. You want the filling to pack a punch in flavour, so the more Oreo’s the better, but the amount you decide to use is truly up to you. The cream cheese gives the filling a smooth, creamy texture while the icing sugar helps to sweeten. You can’t forget the cornstarch / cornflour. This essentially bulks up the filling and helps prevent it melting, resulting in a practically empty pop tart. No-one ever wants that!!
It’s such a simple filling but is delicious, and the perfect combination for the pastry. It doesn’t get much better than that.
How to ice a pop tart:
Personally, homemade pop tarts are my favourite dessert to make. Not only are they delicious, but they’re so much fun to make. Decorating the pop tarts requires little ingredients and no technical skills. Simple drizzle a simple vanilla icing over the top of each pastry and while it’s still wet, crumble over some crushed Oreo’s. That’s it!
If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you could even add some crushed Oreo’s into the icing before drizzling over the pop tarts or even add some cocoa powder to make the treats even more rich and moreish.
