Today’s low carb cheese danish recipe comes to you from halfway across the world! As you read this, my husband and I are wandering the streets of London. (Or maybe we are sleeping? There’s that whole time zone thing.) Either way, I can guarantee that we’re enjoying our impromptu trip.
I’m usually a planner by all accounts, but when we stumbled upon the opportunity to visit London for a few days due to a business trip that came up for my husband, how could I say no? Fortunately I still managed to come up with a detailed itinerary in just a few weeks’ notice. I can’t wait to tell you about it when we return!
For now, I wanted to leave you with a treat to enjoy while we are gone. You can’t go wrong with a low carb cheese danish recipe.
Peach season is in full swing right now. It’s the middle of summer, and I’m just thrilled about the fresh summer produce that’s everywhere. Peaches are only in season for a few short months, which makes me kind of sad to think about.
Can someone please tell me what I need to do to make this season slow down?!
Well, if I can’t slow it down, the least I can do is try to take full advantage.
Peaches are pretty sweet, with 13 grams net carbohydrates in a whole fruit of medium size, so on their own they may be tough to fit into a low carb diet. However, there are definitely ways to incorporate them into a low carb recipe with other ingredients! That’s a great thing, because they are loaded with vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and choline. As a result, they have numerous nutritional benefits, including reduction of cancer risk, enhancement of skin elasticity, and improvement of heart and eye health (source). Besides, they taste delicious!
One of the most classic flavor combinations for peaches is peaches and cream. This low carb cheese danish with peaches fits the bill! It has a buttery coconut flour crust, a vanilla cream cheese filling, and of course, peach slices on top that roast perfectly in the oven.
In addition to being keto, gluten-free, and sugar-free, I also made this low carb cheese danish nut-free, so that people with nut allergies can enjoy it too. Each danish has only seven ingredients and five grams of net carbs. Hooray for indulging in a peach dessert without much preparation time or too many carbs!
There are so many ways to enjoy these low carb cheese danish pastries. Savor them in the morning for breakfast with a cup of coffee, or any time of day for dessert or even a snack. They work well to grab and go, too!
No matter the time of day, a peach cream cheese danish is the perfect way to make the most of peach season while it’s around. (And if you happen to find this recipe when peaches aren’t in season, I do hope you’ll save it for when they are – you won’t regret it.)

VIDEO + NUTRITION INFO + RECIPE NOTES below!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- To make the dough, stir together the coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, and sea salt in a large bowl. Mix in the eggs, vanilla, and melted butter until a dough forms. The dough should be firm but a little sticky and moldable.
Divide the dough into four sections. Make a ball with each, then flatten it on the lined baking sheet, making a thin disk about 1/4 in (.6 cm) thick, with slightly thicker edges.
- To make the filling, heat the cream cheese in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds, until very soft and easy to stir. (You can do this on the stove over low heat, if you prefer.) Stir in the vanilla extract and erythritol. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the danish cavities.
- Arrange the peach slices on top of the cream cheese and press down gently.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the danishes are set and golden.
Serving size: 1 danish
