A good danish pastry is one of the best breakfasts you can have, especially if it’s had while reading the newspaper in a local bakery or coffee shop. One of the most popular danishes has cream cheese and strawberries, which is why we made a keto friendly alternative of a low carb strawberry danish! This recipe will show you how to satisfy your early morning breakfast cravings, minus the sugar–without having to worry about wheat or any other pitfalls of traditional pastry making either.

This low carb, keto strawberry pastry is fruity from the sugar free jam–yep, you heard us right, it’s a keto friendly preserve that works great as filling for almond flour pastries. It’s also got a creamy flavor from cream cheese, and the perfect melt in your mouth crust. Flaky and chewy, you’ll be coming back for more and more!

DIRECTIONS:

KETO DANISH DOUGH

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the almond flour, baking powder, keto friendly granular sweetener, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a medium sized microwave-safe bowl, add the shredded mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, and butter. Microwave in 15 second intervals until the cheese has melted and everything is stirred together, anywhere from 1 to 2 minutes. Then mix in the egg and vanilla extract, stirring until everything is well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the cheese mixture and mix until well combined and it forms a slightly sticky dough ball. You might find it easier to use your hands to mix everything together. Let the dough rest for about 5 minutes to help reduce the stickiness.
  5. Once dough has formed start by dividing it in half. Then split each half in half so that you have four pieces. Divide each of the four pieces in half so you end up with eight pieces of dough. Finally, divide the eight pieces in half to end up with 16 dough balls. Try to make them as evenly as possible but they don’t have to be perfect.
  6. Roll each piece of dough into a ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Make an indent in the center of each dough ball with your fingers. Bake for 5 minutes and then remove from oven and let cool.

KETO CREAM CHEESE FILLING

  1. While the dough balls are cooling, make the filling. Place the cream cheese, keto confectioners sweetener, egg yolk, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl and mix with a hand or stand mixer until well combined.

ASSEMBLY:

  1. When the danish dough has cooled, reinforce the indents of each dough ball by pressing down in the center with your fingers. If the dough cracks around the edges of the danishes, pinch the edges back together.
  2. Place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each danish. If you have any extra, divide it out between all the danishes. Place 1 1/2 teaspoons of the sugar free strawberry jam on top of the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Mix the egg white with the water and lightly brush the edges of each danish with the egg wash.
  4. Bake the danishes for 16-18 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Check them around 10 to 12 minutes to avoid overcooking. Let cool slightly before eating.
