Ingredients

Dough
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup Swerve, Confectioners
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Filling
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp Swerve, Confectioners
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup blueberries
Topping
  • 3 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1 tbsp Swerve, Granular

Instructions

Dough
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking mat with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, and baking powder. In a large saucepan, melt cheese and butter over low heat until it can be stirred together.
  3. Add egg and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Stir in almond flour mixture until dough comes together (keep heat on low). It will still have some large streaks of cheese. Turn out dough onto a silicone mat or directly onto a kitchen counter and knead until uniform (this only takes a little kneading).
  4. Cover with parchment paper and roll out to about a 14x8 inch rectangle. On the diagonal, cut 1 inch wide, 1 ½ inch long strips along both sides, leaving a solid rectangle of dough in the center.
Filling
  1. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, cream, sweetener, and lemon zest until well combined. Spread down the center of the dough, leaving about ½ inch all around. Sprinkle with blueberries.
  2. Fold the strips of dough over the filling so that the ends overlap. Pinch the dough at the ends to seal.
Topping
  1. Sprinkle with sliced almonds and granulated sweetener and press gently to adhere.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until pastry is golden brown and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool completely, then slice into strips to serve.

Serves 8 to 10.

  • Laura Fox

    Your blueberry danish recipe states 0 net carbs but in fact actually has 10 net carbs.

    • Swerve

      Hi Laura, you are correct - 10g net carbs per serving. This typo has now been fixed. Thank you so much for your comment!

  • Marcy

    Step 3 in the "dough" instructions says to add the vanilla extract. I don't see it listed on the ingredients list. How much vanilla extract? Thanks.

    • Swerve

      Hey Marcy, Sorry about that - it looks like we forgot to add the vanilla to the ingredients list. We've updated the recipe now, which calls for 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Thanks for bringing this to our attention! Enjoy!

  • Monica Smith

    Thank you Carolyn for this recipe. I'm looking forward to making this treat. My doc put me on a low carb diet very recently and I'm a sweets/starch fan...I thought I would just have to eat eggs, turkey or bacon for breakfast everyday. Thanks again!

    • Swerve

      Hi Monica! Thanks for visiting our site. Any sweets are possible with a little Swerve and creativity!

  • Melanye

    I'm a little confused as to how you are getting 10 net carbs based on these amounts: Total Carbs 18g Dietary Fiber 4g Sugars 4g Swerve 4g Net Carbs: 10g

    • Swerve

      Hey Melanye, Thanks for this comment! The amount of Swerve in the recipe was miscalculated. We updated the nutrition facts! Net carbs are 5g per serving.
