Keto Hot Pockets Copycats

Sometimes you are in a rush and need to grab lunch in a hurry. That’s one of the things that makes these dairy-free and gluten-free Keto Hot Pockets Copycats so good. You can make several, freeze them, and then bake them back to life when you are hungry.

The non-dairy Crazy Keto Dough you will be making lasts for 3 or 4 days in the fridge, so you can use it to make other keto-friendly recipes that require a traditional bread replacement (pizza, tortillas, breadsticks, chips).

This recipe yields 3 Hot Pocket copycats, so adjust accordingly. Serving size is considered 1 pocket.


Crazy Keto Dough

•    1 cup almond flour

•    3 tablespoons coconut flour

•    2 teaspoons xanthan gum

•    1 teaspoon baking powder

•    1/4 teaspoon salt

•    2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

•    1 egg, lightly beaten

•    3 teaspoons water, as needed

Fillings (per the macros listed)

•    Dijon mustard to taste

•    Ham

•    Mozzarella cheese or cheese of choice


Combine the almond and coconut flours, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt and whisk well. You may also use a food processor. Pour in apple cider vinegar and make sure it is well distributed as you mix. Add the egg and water and stop mixing or turn off your food processor once the dough forms into a ball.

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and knead it for a minute or two. Pop it into the fridge for at least 20 minutes before using (and up to 3 or 4 days).

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Separate your dough into 6 balls of similar size. Press between two layers of parchment paper with a rolling pin and form into rectangles. Once you take the dough out of the refrigerator you need to use it right away! It starts to dry out after 10 or so minutes at room temp.

Add mustard, ham and cheese to 3 of the dough rectangles and place the remaining dough pieces on top. Press the edges of the pockets together to seal.

Place pockets on your parchment lined tray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. You can brush the tops with butter or an egg wash after 10 minutes for a golden brown color. From here the pockets can be frozen for up to 6 weeks, so make plenty.Enjoy!

Stuffed Keto Pork Chops

Stuffed pork chops sound delicious, don't they?  Just remember when you cook these that you can't cook them like you would regular pork chops.

•    3 ounces bleu cheese

•    3 ounces feta cheese

Portobello Cap Keto Cheeseburgers

Everybody loves a good cheeseburger once in a while (well, most everybody). Unfortunately, the traditional cheeseburger experience means flour-based buns which are crammed with carbs, empty calories and not much nutrition.

These burgers use portobello caps for buns, and that means great taste and plenty nutritional goodness.This recipe makes 2 servings (2 large burgers), so tweak accordingly.


For the portobello buns

•    1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil

•    2 cloves garlic, minced

•    2 teaspoons oregano

•    Salt and pepper

•    4 portobello mushroom caps

For the burger patties

•    12 ounces organic grass-fed beef

•    2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

•    2 teaspoons salt

•    2 teaspoons black pepper

•    1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Get a griddle or grill heating on high while you mix the coconut oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Scrape the gills out of the portobello caps and save for toppings or to mix into a salad. Coat mushrooms with the coconut oil mix.

Mix the ground beef and Dijon mustard, salt, pepper and cheese and form into 2 round patties.

Grill portobello caps for 4 or 5 minutes on each side or until heated throughout. You may alternately bake caps in the oven, broiling for 2 minutes per side and then baking at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Add burger patties to a grill or griddle on high heat. Cook for 5 minutes on each side for medium-well, or cook as you normally would.

Remove and place between portobello caps for a healthy and tasty traditional cheeseburger alternative.

While the fish is cooking, cut broccoli into florets. Boil in salted water for 5 to 10 minutes or until soft. Remove, strain, add oil or butter and mash with a fork. Season with salt and pepper and serve as a side dish with the casserole.

Snacks should be simple, easy and quick to make. This qualifies on all counts, and is good for you as well. The recipe makes 2 servings.


•    4 ounces romaine lettuce or baby gem lettuce

•    1 ounce butter

•    2 ounces edam cheese or other cheese

Easy Jalapeno Poppers

The capsaicin in jalapenos raises your thermogenic heat level. This means these delicious keto snacks can help you lose weight!Also, research tells us that the more capsaicin you consume before a meal, the less food you eat throughout the day.

This means this might be a great pre-meal food or snack to keep you from consuming too many calories each day. By the way, they are delicious as well!


•    8 ounces cream cheese

•    1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

•    1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt

•    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

•    8 jalapenos, halved, de-seeded

•    8 slices of bacon, cut in half


Preheat your oven to 375°F.Line a cookie sheet or baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put your bacon slices out flat on a microwave-safe plate lined with a paper towel. Microwave for 4 or 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Set aside to let them cool down.

Add salt and pepper, cheddar cheese and cream cheese in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Microwave for 15 to 25 seconds. Stir together until mixed well.

Scoop your cream cheese mixture and place it into a plastic baggie. Off the corner of the baggie and squeeze the mix into your jalapenos. Wrap bacon around jalapenos and hold in place with a toothpick.

Place jalapenos on the baking sheet and cook for 15 or 20 minutes.

Turn your oven from bake to broil and broil for 2 to 3 minutes while watching the progress. You don't want them to burn, and at the higher broiling temperature, that can happen if you don't keep an eye on what is going on.

Keto Spicy Chicken Dip

Store-bought rotisserie chicken smells so good when it is hot and fresh. It makes a lunch or dinner simple because you don't have to cook or clean anything. You just take the chicken home, eat it and toss the container. A lot of times you may have leftovers.

That's what this spicy keto snack is going to take advantage of. Shred 1/4 of a rotisserie chicken and you have the makings for a quick and easy dip for your favorite vegetables or keto chips.

•    1/4 rotisserie chicken, shredded

•    1/2 cup mayonnaise

•    2 tablespoons curry powder

•    Salt and pepper to taste

•    1 cup mozzarella shredded/grated


You are going to love this. Just throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. If you would like a little extra spice you can add some hot sauce or more curry powder.

Dip your favorite veggies or the Easy Keto Cheese Dips in the next recipe.

Because the nutritional score of your rotisserie chicken can't be determined, we don't have macros listed. However, make according to the recipe here and your dip will be keto-approved.

Easy Keto Cheese Chips

When recipes are as easy as they are tasty, the world is a beautiful place. These cheesy chips can be eaten by themselves, or you can use them to scoop up the Spicy Chicken Dip in the recipe above. Did we mention there are just 2 ingredients? Awesome. The recipe here makes 3 or 4 servings.


•    8 ounces cheddar or provolone cheese, shredded

•    1/2 teaspoon paprika powder


While the oven is preheating to 400°F, place your shredded cheese in small batches on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Leave room between the cheese batches for them to melt and expand.

Sprinkle with paprika powder and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Watch closely towards the end of the baking cycle to make sure the cheese doesn't burn.

Let cool and enjoy. These chips are definitely the best when eaten fresh, but you can store them for use later. Place in an airtight container or a sealable bag and store in the fridge for two or three days.

Microwave Keto Cheesecake

This keto microwave cheesecake takes just 2 minutes to cook. It's a simple and fast but delicious and sugar-free snack or dessert that can calm your between meal cravings.


•    2 ounces full-fat cream cheese, softened

•    1 tablespoon Natural Mate All Purpose Granular Stevia or sugar substitute of your choice equivalent to 2 tbsp sugar

•    1/4 teaspoon vanilla

•    2 tablespoons heavy cream

•    1 large egg, room temperature


Place cream cheese in a medium microwave-safe bowl, cover with a paper towel and microwave for about 15 seconds.

Mix cream cheese with a whisk until no lumps remain.Add in stevia and vanilla, whisking until smooth.

Add in heavy cream and egg. Again, whisk until batter is smooth. The cream cheese will break into small lumps and you will need to whisk briskly for a few minutes at this step to try to remove as many small lumps as possible. Having a few tiny lumps leftover is okay but you want to whisk most of them, otherwise it will affect the outcome of the cake.

Pour batter into a microwave-safe 8-ounce ramekin. Cook at full power in microwave for 1 minute. Cake should be bubbling at the surface but not completely set in the middle.

Cook for an additional 1 minute, 30 seconds at a time. Cooking the full amount at once can cause the cake to explode in the microwave.

Allow the cake to cool a few minutes at room temperature. Use a spatula to loosen edges of cake. Slide cake out onto a plate.

Place cake in fridge to set for 45 to 60 minutes. Serve chilled with fresh fruit or your favorite keto-approved toppings.

•    2 scallions, finely chopped

•    5 ounces chopped, air-dried chorizo, salami or cooked bacon

•    12 eggs

•    2 tablespoons red pesto or green pesto (optional)

•    Salt and pepper

•    6 ounces shredded cheese


Preheat your oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating, line muffin tins with baking cups or butter.

Mix together eggs and pesto, salt and pepper. Add your favorite cheese and stir well. Drop the chorizo and scallions in the bottom of each tin, pouring the egg mixture on top.

Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the size of your muffin tins.

21-Day Keto Meal Plan

You can save time in the kitchen by making enough snacks to enjoy for a couple of days in a row. This 3-week meal plan reflects that. You will also see breakfast recipes repeated several times each week. This gets you into the habit of making those recipes so you can prepare breakfast quickly.

On Fridays in your meal plan, dinner out is suggested. You deserve a meal away from home from time to time. Use your keto-approved and keto-no-go food lists to shape your eating out plans. In a couple of spots you will see leftovers from dinner eaten the next day for lunch. This saves time for your midday meal.

You will also see a couple of lunch recipes scheduled for dinner, and dinner for lunch. You can eat any of these meals and/or snacks whenever you like and still stay in ketosis, so make any changes you like.

Use this meal plan as a way to customize your keto eating experience. This is just a helpful plan, not a meal plan that must be followed to the letter. Enjoy!

Keto Snacking Tips

Remember, you can always slice and dice your favorite keto-friendly veggies and keep in the refrigerator for a quick snack. The following vegetables are definitely keto-approved and won't knock you out of ketosis.

•    Kale

•    Bell peppers

•    Zucchini

•    Cauliflower

•    Pumpkin

•    Spinach

•    Arugula

•    Broccoli

•    Celery

•    Cabbage

•    Asparagus

Hard-boiled eggs make a nutritious snack and last up to 6 or 7 days in the fridge. Add salt or a touch of mayo.

Low-carb nuts and seeds like pecans, macadamia nuts or Brazil nuts are filling. Just eat a few or you may over-carb!

Avocados are super-healthy and tasty. A single avocado delivers between 20% and 42% of 8 essential nutrients and vitamins.

Hard, full-fat cheeses such as cheddar, gouda and Gruyere deliver protein and healthy fats. The same is true for softer cheeses like goat cheese and brie.

Keto Cooking Tips and Carb Swaps

•    The meal plan we have included does not need to be followed perfectly. It was created to make life easy for you, providing recipes that can keep you in ketosis while minimizing how much time you cook and clean in the kitchen. Feel free to change it up as you like. You will no doubt find a handful of recipes that you love. Use them whenever you want.

•    Eat breakfast for dinner and dinner for breakfast. You can eat any keto-friendly recipe at any time.Leftovers from dinner make a quick and easy breakfast, so you may want to make extra when you are whipping up your nighttime meals.

•    A simple morning breakfast or snack is a couple of boiled or fried eggs with mayonnaise.

•    Add cucumbers, leafy greens and bell peppers to any meal to fill up your plate without cranking up the carbohydrates.

•    Since pasta is out, you may think you can never eat spaghetti again. That is far from correct. Spaghetti squash and zucchini produce carb-friendly spaghetti noodle swaps.

•    Bread is often one of the hardest things for newbies to the keto diet to get accustomed to avoiding. Romain, iceberg, butter and other lettuces make excellent bread swaps for wraps, rolls and boats. Portobello mushroom caps can be baked to make crisp, bread alternatives for sandwiches. You may also want to look into Julian Bakery almond flour or coconut flour bread, which works out to just 1 to 2 net carbs per slice.

•    Stevia and monk fruit sweetener are excellent keto replacements for sugar.

•    Get your hands on almond flour and coconut flour to substitute in place of traditional baking flour. You get just 3 to 5 g of net carbs per serving as opposed to the 12 to 14 g of carbs typical wheat flour delivers.

•    Cauliflower makes an amazing rice and potato keto swap. You can whip together healthy alternatives to mashed potatoes, hashed browns and rice for a number of meals.

•    Baked kale "chips" sprinkled with keto-friendly oil and some salt can replace your potato chips when you have a craving.

•    Cook in bulk. Make your favorite keto meals that are freezer-friendly. Break them down into serving sizes and store in your freezer for quick and easy heat and eat enjoyment.

Keto Tips for Eating Out

Unless you fix your own meals, you never really know what is going into the foods you eat and the beverages you drink. This makes eating out risky on the keto diet. This isn't to say you should never enjoy meals at a party with your friends. It also doesn't mean you shouldn't eat restaurant food.

We are just saying that you should follow some simple rules when eating away from home.

•    Eat a light keto-approved snack before you head out.

•    Check the restaurant's menu online before leaving home.

•    If you love burritos, order them in a burrito bowl or salad bowl and ditch the high-carb wrap.

•    Remove the bread from burgers and sandwiches.

•    Choose a protein and fat for breakfast and skip the carbs altogether.

•    Choose tea or coffee without sweeteners, water, or some other keto-approved beverage.

•    Go grilled instead of fried.

•    Steer clear of condiments and sauces, even in very small quantities.

•    Skip dessert.

•    Finally, ask questions. Speak with the waiter or manager at a restaurant and let them know you are going keto. This healthy eating plan has become so popular that a lot of restaurants are ready and willing to handle your keto requests.


You are not being told about many of the most important keto breakthroughs being discovered by leading doctors and medical research centers.

There’s no big conspiracy.

It’s just that these breakthroughs usually don’t get much publicity.

That’s because they’re reported in medical journals intended for doctors such as The New England Journal of Medicine… The Journal of the American Medical Association… Lancet… The American Heart Journal… among many others.

Or; in some cases, these discoveries are made in prestigious health centers in other parts of the world, and receive little or no coverage in the US media.

In still other cases, highly respected medical doctors uncover these breakthroughs in clinical studies in their own private practices. They report their findings to professional medical societies, but these discoveries often escape the notice of the mass media.

All of this leaves gaping holes in the health information you should be getting. Yet these “under-reported” discoveries can be of tremendous importance to you and those you love.

That’s why we created My Health G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time).Until My Health G.O.A.T. came along, if you wanted to try to keep on top of new keto developments and scientific keto breakthroughs, you would have to subscribe to a shopping cart full of professional medical journals and newsletters.

And you’d have to spend a king’s ransom for the privilege!

You might also have to get a medical degree to understand many of the articles. But now that’s changed, thanks to My Health G.O.A.T.

Here are our top 12 articles you can read right now that will help give you a shortcut to success during your keto journey to weight loss:
