Those of you who follow me on Facebook may remember that I am in the middle of a 100 day no-cheat challenge. My family went away last weekend for a few days, and I knew that if I wanted to stay on-plan, I would have to plan ahead.
I am convinced that planning ahead is half (or more) of the battle when it comes to staying on plan! Planning ahead is crucial.
My family was planning to have pizza one night, so I whipped up these hot pockets. I may or may not have eaten one straight out of the oven (ok, I DID)! I cooled them, put them in a Ziploc baggie, and then re-heated them in the oven. They were perfect!
I’m quite sure that you could also freeze these after baking. Keep them in your freezer, then reheat in the oven! Can you imagine how awesome it would be to have your freezer stockpiled with these low carb hot pockets? Planning ahead at its best!
There are so many different flavor combinations! I’ve listed a few of them below. If you have another favorite flavor, leave me a comment and let me know!
Pepperoni & Cheese
Sausage & Cheese
Bacon & Egg
Broccoli & Cheddar (I tried this one - YUM)
These hot pockets use a variation of the popular “Fathead” dough. I originally adapted that recipe to make Low Carb Stromboli. I wanted to replace some of the almond flour with Trim Healthy Baking Blend.
If you have never heard of the Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend, let me explain a bit. This is a pre-mixed blend of low-carb flours that are perfect for baking! The Baking Blend consists of oat fiber, organic coconut flour, golden flax meal, blanched almond flour, collagen peptides, and glucomannan (organic konjac extract powder). And it is completely gluten free!
Compared to straight almond flour, the Baking Blend is much lighter in calories. Now, as a Trim Healthy Mama, I do not count calories (but I do try to keep from abusing them)! Almond flour has 648 calories per cup, compared to Baking Blend’s 240.
Not only is it much lower in calories, but Baking Blend has a whopping 44 grams of fiber and 24 grams of protein per cup! (And only 4 net carbs)
You can see why I love this product! However, if you do not have the Baking Blend, you can use straight almond flour in this recipe. But I would encourage giving the Baking Blend a try!
So, what do you need for this recipe?
1 ½ Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese, Softened
1 Cup Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend
2 Teaspoons Egg Whites
Filling of Choice (I used pepperoni and Mozzarella cheese)

Looks great. Can't wait to try the recipie. I'm going to use ricotta, mozzarella, mushrooms and a little tomato sauce- a low card calzone!
Yay! Ever since you posted on the FB group, I have been stalking your website waiting for you to post this! LOL I have a couple of questions. Do you think it would work to put some sauce on the inside? My other question is how much broccoli and cheese did you do when you made those? I can't wait to make them! The possibilities are endless. I am also thinking about a version with sausage and maybe one with Buffalo chicken! Thanks for posting this! 🙂
Yes, you should be able to put sauce on the inside. As for the broccoli, I just finely chopped some broccoli, then instead of the cheese and pepperoni, I used a couple Tablespoons broccoli, then I laid 1 slice of cheddar cheese on top and sealed the edges.
Have you tried reheating in the microwave? I would love to take these to work along with a salad or broccoli and dip.
Yes, I have reheated them in the microwave (but not from frozen). They are ok, but the texture is different than if reheated in the oven.
Oh these look SO delicious! Great idea for party food!
LOVE your recipes! Is there a way to print them with a photo of the recipe on the page?
These are perfect for my snacking family!
Pesto & chicken with mozzarella would be yummy!
What kind of dipping sauce are you using in the video?
If I don't have baking blend, what can I use?
You can use almond flour. 🙂
could I use the frugal flour recipe instead of regular baking blend?
Yes, that should work.
What is frugal flour?

I can't wait to try these tonight. Great lunch idea for on the go. I would like to make a double batch, but I have enought baking blend to make one. Can I do half the blend and half almond flour for each batch?
Yes, that would work fine!
How would I make them with bacon & eggs? Would I scramble the eggs first?
Yes, just add scrambled (cooked) eggs and pieces of cooked bacon.
Just made these for my little family along with some fresh veggies and THM’s Strawberry Cheesecake Shake, and the meal was a huge success, so I wanted to say thank you for this recipe. I think it can be hard to get used to baking blends, but the pepperoni and cheese inside of the pocket helps to mask the flavors of the baking blend for those who are not used to it.
These look amazing. What is the sauce that they’re being dipped in in the video?
