Gozlemes are one of our family treasures, filled with many fond memories as they have been passed down through several generations. This recipe reminds me of family, laughter and love, through not only its rich history but the reminiscent flavours of my childhood.

This was one meal I wasn’t prepared to give up when changing to a ketogenic diet, I just knew I had to come up with a way to make these into a keto compliant meal and you better believe it when I say these are incredibly easy to make and are definitely drool-worthy! Not only are these keto and low-carb but also nut-free!

How to Swap Coconut Flour for Almond Flour

To swap coconut flour for almond flour, simply use 1 1/2 cups (150 g/ 5.3 oz) of almond flour for every 1/3 cup (40 g/ 1.4 oz) coconut flour.

  6. To assemble the Gozlemes, roll each ball in between 2 sheets of parchment paper, into a rectangle shape.

  9. Heat oil over medium heat in a non-stick skillet, lightly fry each gozleme until golden, turn and cook on the remaining side. Alternatively, you can place gozlemes on a baking tray, lined with baking paper, and cook in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional) or until lightly golden.

  10. Slice and optionally serve with full-fat yogurt or sour cream. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Eat warm by gently warming up in the oven or microwave or cold. Keto Turkish Beef Gozleme

These look so amazing! I don't have a food processor. It's on my wish list. Can these be made without the processor?

Absolutely! You can use this way to make them: Spicy Beef Keto Hot Pockets

Made this dish today. Was utterly fantastic! (I wish I could post a picture here) The wife couldn't believe that the outer covering was not old fashioned bread!
Going to make the chicken seekh kebabs tomorrow!!
Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

I'm glad you enjoyed! We don't have a way for uploading photos but I'd love to see your creations! You could post and tag me on Instagram at instagram.com/ketodiet_app/

For the first time I didn't have lucky with a receipe on this blog 😢 Even following all instructions, the pastry stuck on the parchment paper and I wasn't able to mold as it should be

Oh no I'm sorry to hear that Elaine! I think this may be down to the mozzarella cheese. I had the same issue here - you can see it on the video as the dough is stickier but it was still ok for the pizza: Fat Head Pizza with Pepperoni & Jalapeños
What I used is a mozzarella block for pizza. I can imagine that if I used the same cheese for these, the dough would be too sticky to form into pockets.
What you need is the shredded low-moisture mozzarella that's already grated. I hope this helps!

Can this be made with almond flour instead of coconut flour?

You can! I added instructions for that at the top of the recipe post 😊

Oh awesome, I got it! Sorry I missed that. Thank you!!!! This sounds so delicious. I can't wait to make this tonight! 😊

Excellent! Can it be done with chicken 😜 I don't like beef or I'm not allowed to.

I'm sure any ground meat will work 😊

Any way to make this dairy free??

Excellent recipe, and then the keto diet, while it is not the magic cure-all for every  disease on the planet, does a pretty good job......

It's in the oven and the smell is incredible, I can't wait 😊
