Recipe Details:
This yummy almond croissant recipe is really simple and perfectly diabetes-friendly. Your family and friends will be impressed once you treat them to this dessert.


Ingredients:
  • Almond flour – 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp.
  • Sliced almonds (slightly crushed with your fingers) – 1 tbsp.
  • Butter (unsalted, melted) – 1.5 tbsp.
  • Large chicken egg – 1
  • Cream cheese – 2.5 Oz.
  • Mozzarella cheese (shredded) – 1.5 cup
  • Salt – 1 pinch
    Recipe Directions:
    Step 1
    Put the cream cheese and mozzarella cheese into a microwave safe bowl and heat in a microwave oven at half a minute intervals until the cheeses are completely melted and combined well.
    Step 2
    Add the almond flour, baking powder and salt to the mixture of cheeses. Knead with your hands until a dough has formed.
    Step 3
    Put the egg into a mixing bowl with the dough, and beat with a hand mixer on high until the egg is well incorporated into the dough.
    Step 4
    Put the ready dough in a freezer for half an hour. Then remove from the freezer, put between two pieces of baking paper and roll out until the dough is about a quarter of an inch thick.
    Step 5
    Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 large triangles.
    Step 6
    Starting at the furthest end, roll the dough triangles down until they form a shape of a crescent.
    Step 7
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Put the croissants on a baking sheet covered with baking paper or silicone mat. Press the sliced almonds firmly into the top of the croissants. Bake until golden brown (about 20 minutes).
    Step 8
    Remove the croissants out of the oven, brush the melted butter over the top of the hot croissants and serve. Enjoy!
