Ingredients

Crust:

Cheese Filling:

Glazed Icing:

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Prepare the crust:

In a bowl mix the almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Add in one egg, water, vinegar, and stir to combine. Let the dough rest for at least 5 minutes.

3

Meanwhile, prepare the filling: 

In a bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth. Add in the sweetener, egg yolk, vanilla, and mix until fully blended together.

4

Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. You should aim for a 12x8 rectangle. Trim the sides so you have a straight rectangle. Slice the dough at a slant into 5-6 strips leaving the center about 3 inches uncut across.

5

Fill the middle with the cream cheese mixture and fold into a crisscrossing pattern with the strips.

6

Brush the top with the egg wash and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

7

Remove from the oven and let cool.

8

Preparing the icing:

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered erythritol, and almond milk. Mix together with a hand mixer until you have a thick glaze consistency. Spread over keto danish.

keto cheese danish on plate with frosting

Keto cheese danish is a must-serve for breakfast!

One of the things I missed the most when I started eating keto was fresh pastries for breakfast with my morning coffee. I was so excited when I discovered that you can actually make a keto cheese danish!

This danish tastes just as good as the carb-heavy original without all the added sugars. In fact, this keto cheese danish has the flakey crust that you know and love while clocking in at just 3.7g of net carbs per slice.

Hip tips for making the best keto cheese danish:

    • This pastry dough is perfect to make ahead and freeze so you can easily grab it when you’re ready to make a danish for quick morning baking.
    • The xanthan gum in this recipe makes it malleable so you can roll it out, cut it, and fold it comfortably. You can substitute it for psyllium husk if you prefer.
    • Let the dough rest for at least five minutes before rolling it out so it’s less sticky and easier to work with.
    • You can keep this keto cheese danish refrigerated for up to four days so it can be enjoyed throughout the week for breakfast or a quick snack.
    • If you happen to have any crust leftover, just sprinkle it with sweetener and cinnamon and bake it along with the danish. You’ll get perfect sweet breakfast crackers to serve with Bulletproof coffee.

keto cream cheese danish

A sweet keto treat perfect for any time of the day!

This keto cheese danish would make a great addition to your weekend brunch menu. I included a slice in my husband’s work lunch for dessert and he really enjoyed it, which was a total win as he typically isn’t a fan of most keto desserts!

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:

“This recipe worked out really well and I loved the taste and texture! The glaze sure puts this keto cheese danish over the top. There’s nothing better than a flakey pastry to enjoy along with my morning coffee. My kids had a cup of keto hot chocolate with their danish!”

    I added some keto friendly jelly to inside and icing, it was so good!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh! Perfect idea on adding the jelly!

  2. Diana McKenney

    I tried printing this and the Wendy chocolate ice cream however even though I tapped on PRINT nothing happened.

  3. Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

    Can you try another browser? I was just able to print both of them.

  4. meme

    the pictures looked so good thought i would try it but for the life of me i could not get the dough to look like that picture my dough was very thin and didn’t roll out very good the filling came out fine and tasted great ! i did notice that she had a bag of confectioners sugar did i need that? i will try again that is for sure i like your recipes very much

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That is used in the filling and the icing as listed above. We do suggest to let the dough rest for at least five minutes before rolling it out. That way it will be less sticky and easier to work with. Hope this is helpful!

  5. Rachael Hall

    I really want to try this, However I am allergic to coconut. is their another flour I could use?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      YES, you can add another 6 Tablespoons of Almond flour to sub for the 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour. You will still need to add the other 1 cup of Almond flour as well. This may change the texture some.

        Thank you I will let you know how it turs out.
