Ingredients

  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 3 egg whites
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons plain sparkling water, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 385˚Linea baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a saucepan over low heat, melt the mozzarella and cream cheese together.
  • Stir until smooth and creamy.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
  • Slowly fold in coconut flour, psyllium husk, and salt.
  • Knead with your hands until you achieve a dough-like consistency.
  • Add sparkling water and continue kneading.
  • Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, and roll the dough to ⅓-inch thickness.
  • Brush half of the melted butter onto the dough.
  • With a pizza cutter, start by dividing the dough into 4 equal squares, then into triangles that are about 4 inches wide at the bottom.
  • Roll the triangles up starting at the wide part and finishing with the point.
  • Place each croissant on the baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  • Brush the tops of the croissants with remaining butter, and bake them for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow cooling slightly before serving.
