  1. Stephanie says:

    Hi I really want to try this recipe but I am allergic to almond 🙁 is there any other flour you can recommend me to use instead of almond to replace?

  2. summer duarte says:


    I really want to try this and have all the Ingredients but no food processor or kitchenaide. Can I use a hand mixer? Thanks. Love your recipes!!!

    • Paola van der Hulst says:

      Yes!! Just watch out for ‘flying bits’ as the dough is quite stiff, might need to knead it a but longer by hand xo!

  3. Cat says:

    Bacon cheeseburger hot pockets!?!? What’s not to love? Yeah, I added crumbled bacon to them. You know I gotta add something to almost everything 😊 These are awesome! Perfect for lunch.

  4. Toni says:

    Hello, Just found you today! 1 week into Keto.
    These read incredible but I have a tree nut allergy and can’t use almond flour – do you think these would work ok with all coconut flour and double the egg (2) and double the water?
    Many thanks for your great recipes – inspiring and so helpful…

    • Paola says:

      Hi Toni! A good almond flour sub is sunflower seed flour (I haven’t trie dit myself here though) xo and welcome to gnom-gnom!

  5. Renee says:

    I’d like to make these. They look amazing. Question, I buy my ground beef by weight. So, should I purchase 12 oz of beef for the three pockets? Just want to confirm. Thanks!!!

  6. huria says:

    Hello Paola,

    I do not have coconut flour can i just used almond flour and if so how will the measurements change of the almond flour in order to accommodate?


  7. Ginger Emme says:

    I see a slit at the top of your finished product. Do I need to make a small cut at the top befoer putting into the oven? Thanks!

  8. Johanna Ayers says:

    Anyway I could bake these and use them as buns to top/bottom a burger. I LOVE a grilled burger and since its summer want to take advantage! Definitely making your dipping sauce, yummm!!

  9. Shela says:

    Hello! I have a question. I don’t own a food processor. I have a Kitchenaide Mixer with a wire whip–would that also work?

  10. Debi says:

    Do you have to use the xantham gum in this recipe, because I don’t have any, or can you substitute something else in the place of it? This recipe looks really good and simple. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Samuel says:

    I added some bacon and peanut butter to mine. Don’t be afraid! Pickles and peanut butter are amazing together!

    • Paola says:

      Samuel I NEVER judge when it comes to peanut butter lol! PB, jelly and pickles is pure crack! Awesome you enjoyed 😉

  12. Kelsey says:

    It says to cut the dough into 6 parts, since this is 3 servings there is a top and bottom that you pinch together correct? It doesn’t mention that specifically just to press 3/4 of edges?

  13. Krystyna says:

    WOW! We had this for dinner last night, and it was absolutely incredible. Although now I see what you mean by stuffing it after closing it most of the way. I tried to put all the ingredients in before closing any of it and it got everywhere. Even still though, they turned out absolutely fantastic. And the burger sauce?! It took the burger from really good to out of this world phenomenal.

    I think I’m going to try a pizza pocket with these sometime soon… Maybe a taco pocket? I don’t know, I want to pocket everything now!

  14. Justine F says:

    NO F*(**&( WAY!! I have some of your tortilla dough in the fridge and leftover ground beef, these are happening TONIGHT! Made my day!

    • Justine F says:

      OK SO THESE ARE AMAZING!!! The dough crisps up nicely on the outside, but puffs up and remains so bread-like inside. My bf and I couldn’t believe it lol!

      I’m going to point out that these do take a while to brown and then suddenly brown very quickly! I think we did 27 minutes.

      Thank you once again for such life changing recipes lol
