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.

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
