Who can resist a delicious cheese Danish? There is something about the combination of flaky pastry, sweet tangy filling and that sweet, sweet glaze that just hits every single one of my spots.

These low-carb and keto danishes are so good that you won’t feel like you’re eating any kind of substitute. Instead, you’re eating one of the most decadent danishes that you ever experienced. Truly. Enjoy!

How to Make Nut-Free Keto Danishes

If you can’t eat nuts, substitute the almond flour with an equivalent amount of ground sunflower seeds (weigh with a kitchen scale). Alternatively, you can use 1/4 cup (30 g/ 1.1 oz) to 1/3 cup (40 g/ 1.4 oz) of coconut flour. Start with less and add more if the dough is too wet.
