I don’t know about you, but pogo sticks are a staple of my childhood. Even before starting keto, I ate them every once in while. SO GOOD. So I had to try homemade pogo sticks and trust me, they were worth it.
They tasted just like store bought.

For this recipe, I used jumbo hot dogs.. If you use the same, cut them in half. If you use regular hot dogs keep them the same size..

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cups almond flour
  • 8 jumbo hot dogs halved
  • 16 popsicle sticks

First make your fathead dough.
In a pan, melt your cheese and almond flour. Stir consistently until a dough forms – about 5 minutes.

Take one of your hot dog halves & stick a popsicle stick into the cut end.

Take a piece of dough and wrap it around the hot dog. Squeezing so that the dough seals around the hot dog and the stick.

Place them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes at 350!

    Can you deep fry them instead of baking?

      Hiya! I’m sure you can. I haven’t tried but just make sure they are secured around the hot dog before frying so they don’t unravel

    These don’t work. Dough refused to stick to hotdog, just cracked.

    Your recipes are wonderful thank you so much for doing the hard work and putting Easy-to-Read understand and do recipes with yum yum results. Do you have a recipe for zero carb or low carb pasta dough to put through a KitchenAid pasta extruder? I’m about to forget dot-dot-dot your white bread love is truly Kick-Ass and because of this it’s kept me on keto with success. 350 degrees Fahrenheit of thanks
