keto cherry danishes on cutting board

Looking for a low-carb fruity treat?

These keto cherry danishes are perfect for breakfast or dessert. With the sweet cherry filling and the simple glaze, this is truly a decadent low-carb treat! Even better, they’re easy peasy to make as I’ve taken Lina’s delicious keto biscuits and turned them into delicious keto danishes that your entire family will love.

A delicious mistake?!

Did you know that Danishes were originally made due to a mistake? Yup! According to the L.A. Times, over 350 years ago a French apprentice pastry baker forgot to add butter to the flour and tried to hide his mistake by folding lumps into the dough! From there, the Danish that we know and love today was born. 😋

Hip tips for creating the best keto cherry danishes:

  • To create a perfect keto cherry danish, be sure to press the danish with the back of a spoon to make a “thumbprint” before baking.
  • If you’re having a hard time finding cherries when they’re not in season, feel free to use frozen cherries as I did. They’ll taste just as good and may even be a little cheaper! Or you could swap the cherries completely with lower-carb berries, like blueberries or blackberries – YUM.
  • When creating the biscuit disks, be sure to spray cooking spray on your hands to keep the dough from sticking.
  • These keto cherry danishes will stay fresh in an air-tight container for up to one week.

Grab a keto cherry danish & a cup o’ joe!

I like to start my day with a hot cup of coffee before my boys wake up, and let me tell ya, these danishes are the perfect treat to have with my coffee! They would also be great to have for a weekend brunch since they’re so easy to make. Make a batch to have on hand for a nice grab-and-go breakfast too.

Is it just me or is living the keto life getting easier every day with all of these great low-carb dupes for our favorite recipes?

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

“This is such a wonderful treat! The texture is very moist and very close to a real danish. They are not super sweet and are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. They take away the sweet craving and fill my need for a pastry that I’ve been missing eating keto. They’re so delicious and I can’t wait to make them again!
