How To Make Keto Pop Tarts
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 as well!
Gluten-free Pop Tart Recipe
This recipe is also gluten-free as it is only using wheat-free low-carb flour.
Bonus, if you are using dairy-free butter, the recipe makes delicious keto vegan pop tarts as well, so everyone can share!
Rolling The 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 Tart Fillings
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
