Keto Hamentashen – King Arthur Style

Keto Hamentashen – King Arthur Style

In an effort to not only stay on my keto diet but also keep up with jewish cooking, I wanted to create a keto friendly Hamentashen recipe. This is one of two potential options. This recipe depends on the King Arthur Keto friendly Whole Wheat flour and their Keto alternative sweetener which is Erythritol based. Add in some Smuckers No-Sugar jelly and I have a recipe that creates 12 Hamentashen with each only being 3NetCarbs and 97 calories.

I am going to build another version starting from more typical Keto coconut flour and almond flour sugar cookie dough as well, but this is a good place to start.

These came out excellent.

Keto Hamentashen

Using the King Arthur Keto Floud and Sugar, this is a take on the classic Hamentashen recipe.

Course Dessert
Cuisine Jewish
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Resting Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 38 minutes


  • 1.5 Cups King Arthur Keto Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 7 Tbsp unsalted butter very soft
  • 1/4 cup Keto Sweetener 1-1 Sugar Replacement (I used King Arthur Sugar Replacement) – Erythritol is best
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves


  1. Sift flour and salt together in a small bowl

  2. In another bowl, cut butter into small cubes (make sure its very soft), combine with sugar until creamy

  3. Add Eggs and Vanilla to butter/sugar mixture and combine.

  4. Mix in flour mixture, 1/3 of it at a time, and bring together a dough. This will take some hand kneading to get right. Once it comes together, wrap in plastic wrap and cool in the fridge for 45-60 min.

  5. Preheat oven to 350.

  6. Remove from fridge and let stand for 5 min. Role to 1/8th of an inch and use a circle cut out to make 12 circles.

  7. Place 1tsp of jelly in each circle

  8. Fold up the sides and pinch closed to make the classic shape. Place on a greased cookie sheet.

  9. Bake for 16-18 minutes until brown. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack (let cool and the jelly is really hot)

  1. Just found this recipe after making Hamentashen. Interested in an Almond/Coconut flour recipe.
    Cannot have whole wheat. Thank you.

  2. Run some egg wash around the edge of each circle after you cut them out. That should keep the seams from popping.

    1. Not *true* keto, no, and definitely not with normal wheat flour. This stuff is a mix of wheat flour and wheat fiber, so it’s far lower carb than a normal flour, about 4 grams net per 1/4 cup.

      Unless you’re super hard-core and doing keto *specifically* for a health issue that’s related to wheat, having one cookie at ~2g net carbs each would be fine for any but the most stringent “no carbs period” diet, and if you’re after that, then why are you even looking at pastry recipes?
