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!

Key Ingredients

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

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 the oven to 350°F (180°C). 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, and 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 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 on 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.

    57 Thoughts On Keto Pop Tarts – Strawberry Low-carb Pastry

  1. 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.

  2. Does this recipe result in a „cookie“-like texture or rather in a texture like in a fruit turnover pastry?
    Love your recipes and your work!! Any recipe of you I tried was amazing!!

  3. This recipe looks amazing I really want to give it a try but missing the Xanthan gum. Do you think I can substitute with glucomannan?

    • Unfortunately the dough won’t roll without it. I have never used glucomannan in baking so I am unsure how it works sorry.

    • The dough should not be dry, it is easy to roll and buttery like a real pastry dough. If too dry, it might be because you used either coarse almondflour or slightly too much xantham gum. You can add a bit more melted butter 1 tablespoon to the dough. Let me dough how it come out. XOXO Carine

  4. 5 stars
    These look so delicious! I love your blog. I appreciate the opportunity to have a “sweet” treat without worrying about my glucose levels. Your French-English is adorable! My daughter has a minor in French and we love French pastries. Thank you for allowing me the chance to recall our time in Paris enjoying
    French pastries while taking in the view of the Eiffel Tower. I was ready to give up on pastries!

    • I am so glad you found my blog! I am a sweet tooth too but also can’t have sugar so I guess we have that in common and all my recipes should makes you happy 🙂 Merci/thank you again for being here with me, XOXO Carine.

  5. This looks so delicious! Is there any replacement for the almond flour/ almond milk as I am allergic to tree nuts. Thank you!

    • It will probably work with sunflower seed flour and coconut milk but I didnt try. Hope it goes well, Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

  6. Just want to clarify if this recipe makes 6 pop tarts or 12 pop tarts. I’m thinking just 6 but you say under recipe title 12, filling for 12 pop tarts, but then you say that you get 6 pieces of rectangular dough from each ball, 6 for the top and 6 for the bottom. Making them today, they looked so good. Thanks.

      Hey Carine! Thabks fornthe recepie, looks amazing!.
      I have one question, if I only want to do 4 pop tarts, I just use half of every ingredient?? I ask particularly for the Xanthan Gum and the Apple cider vinegar.

      • Yes half every ingredients but note that sometimes keto baking doesn’t work well when you half them your missing precision and it could not work. You can do a whole batch and freeze the dough for later. The dough works for tart or pie too. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

    • Oups sorry for the mistake 😀 The recipe actually makes 8 regular size pop tarts (or 6 large pop tarts, very epend how thick you roll the dough too!). Nutrition panel is for one regular size pop tarts (so you will cut out 16 rectangles from the whole dough, 8 for the bottom and 8 for the top). I hope it make sense, Enjoy the tarts! XOXO Carine.
