Keto Hot Pocket Dough Recipe

Last night I whipped up a brand new dough recipe and didn’t know what to call it.  Thankfully the people in the Low Carb Inspirations group helped me out because most people decided this should be called a Keto Hot Pockets!  Why didn’t I think of that?!  Brilliant!  Luckily, this recipe is a win or else I wouldn’t be sharing it.  They don’t all end up being winners when I am experimenting.

This recipe is not the same dough we use for Pigs in a Blanket in this Fat Head Dough recipe.  It’s also a bit different from our Low Carb Keto Friendly Pizza Recipe too.  It’s different!  I would say it’s a bit lighter.

Stay tuned because I have plans to use this exact dough recipe and make a Keto Pot Pie Recipe with it!

I always take notes when making recipes.  This time I am translating this recipe from a greasy sheet of paper.   Some of the ink is smeared but all of the measurements are easy to read thankfully!

You know what’s funny?  I use my Amazon Echo for lots of things but I never considered using it to take notes for me!  I need a voice recorded assistant!  I just googled searched and asked if Alexa can record notes and it can!  You have to download an App for it but there are many To-Do Lists or Notes Apps on Amazon!  How stinkin’ cool is that?!  Every day, I am learning new, and helpful things about my Amazon Echo!  I was painting the other day while listening to Alexa read my a book I purchased.  Technology amazes me!  I know, I know…  I’m a nerd.

UPDATE!!  We now have a coconut flour only conversion of this recipe with special thanks to Kerry and Emily Jackson!!  You will find this version at the very bottom of this post also.  OH! And, head over and request access to our Low Carb Inspirations group on Facebook.  We provide some amazing information and support for the Low Carb and Keto lifestyles.  We have over 18,000 active members who love to talk about this way of life!

UPDATE #2!

Just look at how yummy this Philly Cheesesteak ring is!  This was made by my friend Jan!  She said it was super simple to make and here’s what’s in it:  shaved beef, sautéed onions and peppers, and provolone. Baked at 350 for 30 min. Served with ranch dressing.   Holy smokes that Keto Philly Cheesesteak Ring looks amazing!  Great for parties too!  Everyone loved it!

Keto Hot Pocket Dough Recipe Ingredients

1 3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese
5 tbs Butter (I love me some Kerrygold butter!)
1 egg
1/2 cup Almond Flour
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
1 1/2 Tsp baking powder
1/2 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Note: You will need parchment paper or a silicone mat or both! These are extremely helpful!

 


 

 

Keto Hot Pocket Dough Recipe Instructions

I started off by preheating my oven to 350 degrees.

You will need a small saucepan and a medium size bowl.

In the medium size bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients first: Almond flour, Coconut flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder and onion powder.

In a small saucepan, start to melt the mozzarella cheese over low heat.
Once the cheese has melted, add the butter and egg to this mixture. You want all the butter to be melted at the end of this step. It will be liquid cheese until you add the dry ingredients.

Note: You can heat up the cheese in the microwave but you will need to work fast. It’s important to have the cheese warm when you roll out the dough. If not, it won’t roll out easily. This is the reason I prefer to use a saucepan to heat the cheese. It tends to keep it somewhat warm until I am ready to combine all the ingredients together.

Now add all of your dry ingredients into the saucepan mixture. It will seem as though the ingredients don’t come together right away. You will see the separation of flours and cheese but, don’t worry, these ingredients will eventually come together when you knead the dough.

The dough mixture will be warm at this point but not hot (be careful to check it before touching the dough).

Pour the dough mixture on to a non-stick silicone mat or parchment paper (I prefer the silicone mat because it sticks to the counter top and don’t budge when you are rolling out the dough)

Split the dough into two different portions. Place one of the portions back in the warm saucepan until you are ready to roll it.

Gently roll the warm dough out into a rectangle shape. Then set it aside.

Grab the other warm dough portion and roll it out into a rectangle shape. This dough rolls nicely but seems to be a bit sticky at times. If that happens, you can sprinkle a very small amount of coconut flour onto the dough to prevent sticking.

Now that you have two large rectangles shaped dough spreads, you can add whatever filling you want into these hot pockets. I tend to use leftover meat portions in mine. I added hamburger meat, mozzarella cheese, and a few jalapenos to one of them. I added hamburger meat, mozzarella cheese and a small amount of spaghetti sauce to the other. Both turned out amazing! Get creative with the filling! Next time I think I will add pepperoni, sausage, and cheese with a small amount of spaghetti sauce. Please come back and tell me what you create because I am always up for a bit of variety and new ideas too.

 

Here’s the nutrition label for the Keto Hot Pocket Dough only.

UPDATE:  There was some confusion on the servings.  I made two large hot pockets and then I cut them into individual sizes by cutting each of them into six servings each.  I wished I grabbed a photo to show this but the family devoured them about as quickly as I cut them.

I wanted to show you what the dough looks like before you start kneading it.  It doesn’t look like it will come together but it does.Keto Hot Pocket Dough Recipe

I used a silicone mat to roll the dough out.  Then I flip the mat over onto a parchment sheet of paper to bake it.  I would have used my other silicone mat to bake it on but I was using it for something else at the time.

I added a layer of Mozzarella cheese first.

Then I layer some seasoned hamburger on top with a few jalapenos!  YUM!!!

I topped it with another small layer of Mozzarella cheese before folding it up.

I fold it by flipping over the long side first and the the other long side.  Then fold over the ends.

This is the second Keto Hot Pocket where I added a small amount of spaghetti sauce to the top of it.  Don’t add too much because you don’t want the sauce coming out of the hot pocket when you bake it.

Coconut Flour ONLY Keto Hot Pocket Recipe Conversion:

No almond flour was used, instead, I used a total of 6 tbsp coconut flour, 1/8 Tsp of xanthan gum, and added an additional egg for a total of 2 eggs.

I added spices (Italian blend, pepper) to the dough but that is just my preference.

I stuffed it with scrambled egg, ham, breakfast sausage, black olive, green onion, mushroom, and salsa. I forgot the cheese but I’m glad I did. I eat too much cheese.

Here’s the photo of this coconut only keto hot pocket recipe:

    Oh my goodness! I tried this tonight with leftover ham, swiss cheese, mushrooms and onions. Soo good!! This will become a regular!

  2. The filling possibilities are endless for breakfast, lunch or dinner! This would also make an amazing crust for a quiche. Thank you! *Total*Game*Changer!

    Jennifer I made this tonight, it was so delicious I was wondering if I could use just almond flour because I wanted to eat the whole thing and I was afraid because the coconut flour has so many carbs in it. Do you think it would change the texture of the recipe totally. thanks this is definitely a game changer.

  4. 5 stars
    This is a fantastic recipe! I made this tonight using leftover roast beef, tomatoes, little bit of cheddar cheese, little bit of pizza sauce. My husband said, “please make this again!”

  5. 5 stars
    I am SO excited to try this recipe, as I’m not a huge fan of the fathead dough recipe. It just seems to heavy to me. This, though, seems like it will be very light and flaky! So I was thinking…I wonder how this crust would work for cinnamon rolls? Any thoughts on that?

  6. I’m thinking of taking out the onion and garlic powders and putting in cinnamon and nutmeg and then doing a berry pocket or even a cheese cake version. What a versatile pastry.

  7. 5 stars
    This was fantastic! Thank you for sharing. The dough was so flaky! One thing, can you explain the serving size exactly? Mine made two big pockets and the nutritional facts say 12 servings so we can assume we should get 6 pieces out of one. Too bad I ate the whole thing! I am stuffed! Lol!

    Hi Jennifer…thanks for a GREAT recipe! I noticed you mentioned the dough ingredients will come together when you knead the dough…but missed the part about actually kneading….can you advise please? I’m guessing its after pouring it onto the Silpat? How long do we need to knead it? Thank you 🙂

    1. Oh yes, sorry. Once you pour the ingredients on to the mat you will start to knead it. It won’t take long though. You will know what I mean when you start to make it yourself. Welcome!!

    Made these tonight with leftover turkey, veggies, and a keto bechamel sauce. Delicious! However, no way each half of the recipe makes 4-6 servings. I’d say half of that. We cut each one in half, and my husband and kids could have had more. Still, incredible dough! My son thought it was regular crust!

  10. How noticeable is the coconut flavor? We are not fans at all unfortunately. :/ Can you make this without the coconut flour? What would the adjustment be? Thanks for posting this!

    1. Wondering the same thing myself! I am thinking of just using more almond flour for the coconut flour. Fathead dough is petty much just that. Anyone try it without the coconut yet????

      1. Just made this I made half into a flat bread. Added some italian seasoning. You can’t taste the 2 diff flours used

    What to say?? Incredible delishisness! Made mine as a kind of Philly steak and cheese version using leftover pot roast. Can’t wait to try some other fillings! Thank you!

  12. I just made these with garlic and Italian seasoned ground meat, carmalized onions, Italian seasoned diced tomatoes form the can, and topped all that with 6 cheese Italian blend. Yummy

  13. 5 stars
    Wow! This is an amazing recipe! I used leftover pot roast with grilled onions and peppers. I can’t wait to experiment with this dough! It is buttery and delicious! Perhaps some apple turnovers are in the future?

  14. I’m so excited!! We used to make homemade calzones at least once a month, but have stopped since some of our family have gone keto. Now I can make them again!!! I’m not even going to tell anyone…. I’m just going to surprise them.
    Thank you, again, for another wonderful creation!!

  15. This recipe is the perfect amount to make a turkey pot pie, which I made today and it was FAB! I did par-bake the bottom crust first for about 13 min, then added my pre-made, still warm filling and had the top piece prepped and ready to go. Baked @ 350′ for 25 min. Already planning on making the next ones with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I wonder how well they’ll freeze? ps I have a great photo of it.

  16. Since Hot Pockets is the name brand of an unhealthy snack/sandwich alternative, you could call it Keto stromboli recipe, which is more of a gourmet meal type sandwich. ?? My family used to love sromboli, but I quit making it because of the carbs. I’ve got to try this recipe! Thanks!

      1. At the same time, “hot pocket” in the title is what is made me interested to watch the video, come here and read comments, and print out the recipe. I miss real (unhealthy) hot pockets (thanks, celiac disease) and I look forward to trying your recipe.

    1. Or hand pie because hot pockets are a hand pie, which lots of cultures have a version of and can be either sweet or savory. Piroshkies are a hand pie I’ve been “hungry” to make and empanadas are also a hand pie that look really tasty! This dough seems perfect for any hand pie you can think of!! Also as you can see hand pies are fun that’s why I typed it so many times! I think a calzone is a hand pie…. Pies on the go! Lol

    I would use lean seasoned ground beef, cabbage, and onion for a Runza. For my ground meat I buy roasts or cheap cut steaks when they are on sale and grind them into chopped meat after trimming most fat. More meaty. My family loves this for chili, homemade spaghetti sauce, anything using hamburger. Also much cheaper.

    1. I’m going to do this tonight. I also add a little bit of grated carrot for additional flavor. I have always used crescent rolls for my runs as as I found bread dough too heavy. This recipe looks like it will be great for them.

    Yum. I tried it with ham and swiss cheese, then made a dijon mustard cream sauce (bechamel and dijon to taste) for dipping. Incredible.

  19. I cannot wait to try this recipe!!!
    Thank you!
    I’m also thinking CALZONES! ???
    And, would this work for something with a cinnamon flavor? I miss crispy pastries!!!

  20. Made these today! They were perfect! So delicious!!! I cut mine in two four pieces and made smaller portions. I put some leftover corned beef and onions that I had sautéed the other day and mixed some scrambled in eggs in there to make a breakfast pocket. And the other two I did ham cheese and grape tomatoes. Took 20mins at 350. LOVE it. Thanks for sharing, I’m going to make bigger batches for work breakfasts!
