Keto has always worked very well for me because I love meat and veggies. That being said, every now and again, I find myself craving something light and fluffy to round out my meal.
That’s when I whip up a batch of these delicious Keto croissants! They’re lightly seasoned, gluten free, and the perfect way to complement pretty much any meal.
You can serve them plain or add a little butter for a bite that’s sure to put a smile on your face. Sometimes, I’ll even toss mine in the oven for a few minutes so I can enjoy them hot and fresh!
I also think this simple recipe is fun to make. You’ll mix the dough, roll it out, cut it into triangles, and then you get to roll up each crescent. From there, just toss them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
Did I mention that you only need nine ingredients for this recipe? And all of them are pretty standard for any Keto kitchen. That means you can throw together a batch of Keto croissants any time you’re craving something fluffy and delicious!
How Many Carbs In A Croissant?
Croissants, or crescent rolls, can be prepared lots of ways. The nutrition is going to vary based on whether you’re looking at a freshly-baked roll at a local bakery or the kind you pop out of a can and bake.
For comparison, we’ll take a look at Pillsbury refrigerated crescent roll dough. These turn out pretty small, but each one will still contain 12 grams of carbohydrates.
Compare that to a Keto croissant, which only has 4 net carbs per serving! By using low-carb fathead dough as our base, we’re able to drastically reduce the total carbs. It also makes these tasty pastries gluten-free.
So basically, with Keto crescent rolls, you get a third of the carbs and a bigger serving size. Sounds like a win-win to me.
What To Serve With Keto Croissants
Is there even a meal out there that isn’t made better by a delicious, fluffy pastry? From breakfast to dinner to everything in between, there’s never a bad time to enjoy a Keto croissant!
In the morning, I love eating a low-carb crescent roll alongside some fluffy eggs and a few slices of perfect baked bacon. Can you think of a better way to start the day?
Keto croissants are also delicious alongside any hearty dinner. Whether it’s creamy chicken with sage and spinach, meatloaf, or white chicken chili, a light pastry is a great way to break up your bites and soak up any extra sauce.
They also make a lovely snack at any time of the day. I recommend adding a little butter or Keto blueberry jam to really treat your tastebuds!
Can You Store Leftover Low Carb Croissants?
Absolutely! I recommend placing any extras in an airtight container or a plastic gallon freezer bag. You can store them in the refrigerator for up to five days.
Fathead dough in general reheats very well. Simply pop a Keto croissant back in the oven at 350 degrees for about five minutes or until heated through, and it will taste as amazing as when it was first baked!
How To Make Keto Croissants
Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the cream cheese and mozzarella in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the cheese is melted and combined.
Transfer the cheese mixture to a mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
Blend on high until a well combined dough has formed.
Roll the dough into a rectangular shape about ¼ of an inch thick.
Cut the dough into large triangles.
Starting from the widest end of the triangle, roll up each piece of dough until it forms a crescent shape.
Place the crescent rolls on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
