If you’ve not tried our Keto Hot Pockets yet, you’re in for a treat. These spicy beef hot pockets are packed full of flavour, not too hot but if you’re a chilli lover you can totally up the anti and go chilli mad.

I served these low-carb spicy beef hot pockets to Mr B (my food critic and chief taste tester) and I couldn’t help but chuckle at the big thumbs up, you’re through to the next round wave. He thinks he’s John Torode off Masterchef! LOL!

These keto-friendly hot pockets make a great low carb lunch idea or comfort food dinner, served with a simple side salad.

This was an excellent recipe, my partner said it was the best thing i have ever made him! Instead of the oven i put it on parchment paper and then in the airfryer at 400 degrees for about 6-8 minutes and it was golden brown and delicious! Thanks for the recipe, will definitely be making this again!

Thank you Michelle, I'm glad you enjoyed - I really need to get an air-frier! 😊

Is one serving half of a pocket or a whole?  Thanks!

Hi Kirsten, the whole recipe makes one large pocket and one serving is half of a pocket.

What about using coconut wraps

I have never used these but maybe someone else can comment?

Hi Martina,
Mozzarella and almond flour, what an interesting combination! Can't wait to try it.
I don't have a microwave, can I melt the mozzarella in the oven?

I think you can but keep in mind you only want to melt it, not  bake/crisp it up, so low temperature and/or covering it with a lid should help. You'll need to keep an eye on it. Alternatively, you can melt it on the stove (low heat) while stirring.

Thank you for answering the question.
Sorry, I didn't realize, this recipe was from Jo.
Thank you Jo for this great idea. I am going to try it!!

No problem at all! We discuss all recipes anyway so I should generally be able to answer 😊

Superb, just had it for lunch from the leftover bolognese sauce.
Thanks for the recipe, the dough was perfect.

Thank you for your feedback Ilija!

Why is it that my dough doesn't yield as much as the recipe says?

I'm not sure - are you using the right type of mozzarella? This is the same recipe (the dough): Keto Morning Hot Pockets
