These keto pop tarts or low-carb strawberry pastry are delicious buttery, flaky pastries filled with strawberry chia seed jam. Plus, these homemade strawberry pop tarts are vegan, gluten-free, and paleo.

Tell me, do you also crave breakfast pastries on the weekend? As a French girl, French crepes and pastries are Sunday morning favorites. Here I am sharing with you how you can make delicious low-carb strawberry pastries on a keto diet.

What are keto pop tarts?

A keto pop tart is a single-serve low-carb pastry with a buttery, flaky dough filled with sugar-free jam or cream cheese. They are delicious for breakfast or dessert with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Low-carb pastry dough that won’t break!

Let’s face it, most low-carb pastry doughs are very fragile and break up easily when rolling. I am sharing with you a NO-FAIL keto pastry dough that rolls perfectly and won’t break!

The key is to use xanthan gum and NOT eggs! Keep reading to see all the ingredients you need to make this perfect keto pie dough.

  • Almond flour – you absolutely need to use fine blanched almond flour. Learn how to choose your keto flours.
  • Coconut flour – fresh with no lumps. Coconut flour contains a huge amount of fiber that is highly moisture-absorbent. It means that if you are using an old bag of coconut flour, it may have lumps, and it would make it difficult to measure precisely. Break any lump, pack, and level your cup to measure this precisely.
  • Butter – or dairy-free vegan butter, melted. Learn why butter is a keto-friendly dairy product.
  • Xanthan gum
  • Apple cider vinegar – or lemon juice
  • Unsweetened almond milk – or unsweetened coconut milk.
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – erythritol, monk fruit stevia blend, or allulose – learn why I’m recommending these keto-friendly sweeteners. The recipe works unsweetened too!

Gluten-free pop tart recipe

How to roll keto dough?

The dough is stickier than wheat-based pastry dough. Therefore, you must roll the dough between two pieces of parchment paper or silicone mats. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin.

Best keto pop tarts fillings

There are infinite possible fillings. I recommend my keto berry chia seed jam recipe using any keto fruits you like in the recipe. My favorite flavor is keto strawberry pop tarts, but raspberry and blueberry taste amazing too. Other ideas are:

  • Cream cheese – warm cream cheese with sugar-free crystal sweetener. Spread in the pastry with some fresh berries on top. Cream cheese is perfectly keto-friendly!
  • Fresh berries – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries. They will cook in the oven and naturally create a fruit compote in the pastry.
  • Curd or custard

  • Before you start, make sure you measure all the ingredients precisely in grams/oz or cups. If you use cups, firmly pack the flour in the cup and level it.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, sugar-free crystal sweetener, and xanthan gum.
  • Add in unsweetened almond milk, melted butter, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Combine with a spoon at first, knead the dough with your hands until you can shape a ball.
  • Wrap the pastry dough ball into a piece of parchment paper or cling film wrap.
  • Freeze for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the freezer and divide the dough ball in half. Roll each half between two pieces of parchment paper into 1/4-inch thick rectangles of about 1.5 x 2.3 inches ( 4cm x 6 cm). You will get around 16 small rectangles in total, 8 from each half dough ball. For larger tarts, double the size of each rectangle and make only 6 pop tarts (net carbs per serving will therefore double).
  • Transfer rectangles of dough onto the prepared baking tray, leaving a 1-thumb space between each rectangle. The dough won't expand while baking, but the jam may run out of the pastry, so it's better to leave some space between each pop tart.
  • Spread 1/2 tablespoon of cream cheese (or vegan coconut yogurt) in the center of each rectangle of dough, leaving a half-inch (1 cm) edge around the edges. Layer 1/2 tablespoon of chia seed jam on each rectangle over the cream cheese and add a few slices of fresh strawberries (optional). Make sure you don't cover the borders of the rectangle with the filling, or you won't be able to close the tart. Use less filling if needed (this can happen if you roll your dough thicker and didn't manage to cut out enough rectangles).
  • Lay the other rectangles over the filling and seal the edges by pressing with your fingertips. If desired, cut the top dough with a knife to form gills.
  • Brush the top of each pop tart with beaten eggs or unsweetened almond milk if vegan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes in the center rack of your until the crust is golden brown. You can add a piece of foil on top of the pop tarts if the crust browns too dark/too fast and bring the tray to a level lower in the oven.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine sugar-free powdered sweetener with almond milk. Add more almond milk to make the glazing more liquid or add more powdered sweetener to thicken.
  • Cool the pop tarts down on a rack for 2 hours. Drizzle the glazing onto the cold pop tarts.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze individually and defrost the day before at room temperature.
Net carb per pop tart, the recipe makes 8 pop tarts, including jam: 6.6 g (or 5 g without jam, only cream cheese).

  1. Thinking about making these for thanksgiving appetizers and filling with Brie walnuts and maybe a sugar free raspberry jam. What to drizzle on top maybe honey? Any suggestions

  2. 5 stars
    Keto breakfast pastries!!! These will be made tomorrow morning. I understand packed coconut flour, but what does leveled up mean?

  3. Very keen to do this recipe! I was wondering, more from interest really and what you might think, do you think the coconut flour could be replaced with lupin flour? I’d think they are similar (somewhat), I’ve heard it produces a nicer texture for things like pastries

  4. I have made a few of your recipes here lately. Thank you for creating them! I have never heard of chia seed jam…where does one buy that? And how are these strawberry if there are no strawberries in them?

  5. I didn’t see salt as an ingredient in the recipe, but I saw it was added in the video. So you might want to correct that and also give an amount. I also just realized, now that I’ve put mine in the oven, that I didn’t add the strawberries. Maybe you could list them in the ingredients with an “optional” comment, instead of just waiting for the instructions. I glossed over them. Thank you. I’m excited to try these. My dough was hard to work with, but maybe that’s because I had to sub out some of the coconut flour for trim healthy mama baking blend, and I probably didn’t get the amounts quite right.

    • Salt is optional, it won’t impact the recipe like strawberries, filling is very up to you, sugar-free jam works too. If the texture was different it’s because you swap flours, keto baking recipes are very sensitive to fiber and protein amount, swapping flours highly change their liquid absorbency. Enjoy

  6. I’ve been looking for a pastry dough with which to make a long roll, with blueberries, i.e. a blueberry roll. I’m thinking your recipe might work. Do you recommend that I prebake a big rectangle and prebake (and for how long) before rolling up and baking?

  7. Hi! I’m new to your blog but excited to discover more than just this recipe. I want to use this recipe as a cannoli shell recipe. What are your thoughts? I do plan on baking these but what do you think about deep frying. Would it work? Do you think it would work all together as a cannoli shell? Thanks for all you do! Gabriel

  8. Could I substitute Bob’s a Red Mill brand 1:1 gluten free flour instead of making the blend? It has xanthan gum in it.

    • I didn’t try this option since gluten free all purpose flour is not keto approved. I am not sure it will work well as all-purpose GF flour blend contains lots of starch and already have xantham gum added so the ration will be very different to achieve the same texture. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  9. 4 stars
    I made these today and I do have to say they were tasty. I just don’t get the color. Yours are so light in color, where mine were very dark from the almond flour. How is that? Is there a way to make them with more coconut flour rather than almond flour? Thank you!

    • You can’t replace almond flour by coconut flour in keto recipes, simply because coconut flour contains 4 times more fiber and it will dry out the pastry and won’t roll at all. Is your almond flour contains dark spots before using ? If so, you may be using almond meal I am using ultra fine blanched almond flour, it is pure white gold in color and doesn’t darker in the oven. Maybe try a different almond flour brand, or bake with a piece of foil on top of the tart to avoid them to brown too fast. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  10. Excited to try these, I am guessing you would have mentioned if you could but do you need the butter or could you sub in melted coconut oil?

    • It will work well with butter too, I prefer the crispiness of the dough using coconut oil. The dough is a bit softer with butter. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

  11. I have been looking for a good pie crust. Will this work for a pie crust? If so, what size pie plate….8″ or 9″? Would you recommend pre-baking it before filling it?
    Thanks for your help.

  12. 5 stars
    Fantastic recipe, and regular sugar can be subbed in 1:1 for those who don’t want/need alternative sweeteners. I am so excited because having made these once, I think the dough is stretchy enough to be used for hamentashen, and the lightly sweet dough has just the perfect flavor profile! Can’t wait to try.
