Some mornings are just meant to be enjoyed with a hot cup of coffee and a warm Danish pastry. If you’re watching your diet, however, you’ve probably been avoiding all pastries as much as you can.
This lightened up Danish recipe, however, will allow you to indulge in this sweet breakfast treat without completely jeopardizing your health-focused senses.
To make a classic Danish a little bit healthier, we use this recipe to create more of a sweet bread than the flaky pastry you may be accustomed to, which allows us to reduce the amount of butter in the recipe significantly.
Whole grains, reduced sugar, and light sour cream are just a few of the changes we’ve made to be able to enjoy this Danish pastry without totally sacrificing our health. The resulting Danish pastry is about half the calories of a traditional Danish pastry, which makes us that much more likely to splurge on this recipe when the craving hits.
