What’s a low carb recipe for Danish pastry?

A Answers (1)

  • These breakfast treats may look and taste like regular Danish, but they’ve been given a healthy, low carb makeover. Softened cream cheese is mixed with blueberries for a savory yet sweet filling you spread on lavash bread. Bonus: These Danish are easy to make and can be ready in minutes.
