Jays Low Carb Croissants!

I have made the Atkins revolution rolls, and while they were OK I knew I could improve upon that recipe to add better texture and a lot more taste, so I present to you ” Jay’s Low Carb Croissants”.  These are so yummy and I love the texture, so much like regular Croissants.

Ingredients:

4 Egg Whites

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

3 Egg Yolks

1 Tsp Mrs Dash (original blend)

1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1 scoop of 365 Brand vanilla whey protein shake (from whole foods) mix with 1/4 water

1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise

Method:

  1. To the egg yolks add the  Mayonnaise, Mrs dash, cheddar cheese and the vanilla shake and mix until uniform.
  2. To the egg whites add the cream of tartar and whisk using a mixer as shown in the video.
  3. Add the egg yolk mixture to the egg whites and fold in the mixture.
  4. Using a large spoon, spoon mixture out to a try lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes at 300 degrees
  6. Turn oven off and leave in oven for another 5 minutes.
  7. Then remove croissants and place on a wire rack to cool.
  8. Let cool for about 10 minutes before eating.

This mixture will make 6 large croissants, Enjoy!

    Hi Kim! I am sure you can try something like almond flour but I am not sure how much it will change the texture, I think coconut flour may work as well.

    I love your recipe videos. I have checked all the comments but do not see a response to sustitute for vanilla whey. Is there something else that can be used in place of it….?

    I have made these three times this week – they are WONDERFUL!! I use two of them for a sandwich sometimes and I even used the recipe for pizza yesterday. The only problem is, I could eat the whole batch at once!!!!

  10. Alisa says:

    Gwen, Just so you know, you cannot taste the cheese once the croissants are cooked. My daughter cannot stand cheese, and she LOVED the croissants. (I didn’t tell her that they had cheese in them until AFTER she ate them. She was very surprised!!) Good luck.

    And thanks again, Jay. I am looking for a recipe for tomorrow night’s dinner now! :)

    Hi Gwen, The cheese really works as a binder, I am no sure if anything will work as well.

  12. Jay says:
