Servings: This recipe makes approximately 4 Keto Hot Pockets.
For the dough:
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 1 ½ cups almond flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
For the filling (suggested):
- 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
- 1 cup cooked chicken breast, shredded
- ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup diced bell peppers
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the cheeses are melted and well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt.
- Add the dry ingredients to the melted cheese mixture, followed by the eggs. Stir well until a dough forms. If the dough becomes too stiff, you can heat it briefly in the microwave to make it more pliable.
- Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Place one portion on a sheet of parchment paper and cover it with another sheet. Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape, approximately ¼ inch thick.
- Remove the top parchment paper sheet and layer the filling ingredients on one half of the dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Carefully fold the other half of the dough over the filling. Press the edges firmly to seal the pocket. Use a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.
- Repeat steps 5-7 for the remaining dough portions and filling ingredients.
- Transfer the Keto Hot Pockets to the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
- Allow the hot pockets to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy them warm or pack them for a convenient on-the-go meal.
