These gluten free vegan brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts taste so much better than store-bought! Buttery pastry, with a cinnamon sugar filling and covered in a sweet cinnamon glaze. 

Did you have a favorite pop tart flavor growing up? Mine was always the brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts. After being toasted up in the toaster, they were all sorts of breakfast pastry perfection {in my child eyes}. My mom didn’t buy them very often, but when she did, it was such a treat!

Gluten Free Vegan Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts. Homemade buttery pastry, with a cinnamon sugar filling and covered in a sweet cinnamon glaze. I’ve wanted to make gluten fee brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts for YEARS. I’ve made the classic strawberry pop tarts, which are super tasty and so fun to make. They are also nostalgic for me, but I’ve still been craving these grown sugar cinnamon pop tarts for far too long. It was time to create a recipe to share with all of my gluten free friends. 

Don’t be intimidated by the steps it takes to make these homemade pop tarts. If you’ve made a pie crust, you’ve got this! Once the dough is rolled out, you slice it into rectangles {I like to use a pizza cutter}, fill it with the cinnamon sugar filling and top with another dough rectangle. Crimp those edges, bake to golden perfection and then cover in a simple cinnamon glaze.

These gluten free vegan brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts are buttery, heavy on the cinnamon and a total upgrade from the store-bought version. I’m certain you’ll think so too!
