Keto Jalapeno Cups

Keto jalapeno popper cups that are encased in a coconut flour  pastry.  These little bites of spicy cream cheese make a delicious snack.

I used my mini muffin tray for these yummy jalapeno popper cups but you could bake them in a large muffin tray.  If you do, bake them for about 5 minutes longer to ensure that the coconut flour pastry is cooked thoroughly.

As the jalapeno popper cups were baking they rose like little cakes.  However, once they cooled down to a normal height.  I was rather hoping they would stay tall like mini towers.  I’ve found that when you bake with cream cheese, it does rise and fall.

  • 1/2 cup 56g Coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon Pysllium husk powder
  • 6 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Boiling Water


  • 5 oz 140g Cream cheese softened
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers deseeded & finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup 25g Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 cup 28g Mozzarella cheese grated


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees

Make the Dough

  • Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and blend well.
  • Add the oil and egg and stir until combined.
  • Add the boiling water, gradually until you have a dough. Firm up with your hands.
  • Roll out the dough by placing it on a piece of parchment paper, place another piece of parchment paper on top, then roll out.
  • Cut out circles to cover the muffin tin spaces (I used a wine glass, but a large cookie cutter would do too).
  • Place the circles in a greased mini muffin tin and ensure that all the sides are covered with the dough.

Make the Filling

  • In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese, jalapenos, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese together.
  • Spoon the cheese mixture into the dough cups.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is firm and golden.
