Carnivore Danish

My Keto Fat Head Danish recipe has been a craze in the keto community. I love that people are getting off grains and finding new ways to enjoy their favorite foods like danish!

My keto fat head danish is so delicious but I was on the pursuit of making the danish without almond flour because I no longer eat nuts or nut flours since they always kept me back from losing weight. This is why most of my books are NUT free! I have many books that are nut free (and some nut and dairy free too such as The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse, Easy Dairy Free Ketogenic Recipes AND my Protein Sparing Modified Fast Cookbook) to help people be successful on the ketogenic diet.

I created my keto danish into a keto pork rind danish! If you do not like pork rinds, do not worry! You don’t even taste the pork rinds!

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Natural Sweetener


  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons Natural Sweetener or a few drops of stevia glycerite


  • 1/4 cup Natural Sweetener
  • 1-2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream


  • crushed almonds omit for nut free


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • To make the dough, place the mozzarella and the cream cheese in a heat safe bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is entirely melted. Stir well with a spatula. Add the egg and stir to combine well. Add the powdered pork rinds and combine well.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
  • Place a greased piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  • Place one ball of dough the dough on the greased piece of parchment paper and pat out with your hands to make a large circle shape, about 4 by 4 inches. Pinch the outsides to create a crater in the center. Repeat with dough so you have 4 circles placed 1 inch apart from each other.
  • Make the cinnamon filling by placing the melted butter, natural sweetener and cinnamon in a small bowl and use a fork to combine well. Divide the mixture into the center of each circle.
  • Fold the outer 1/2 inch of the circle into the center to make a danish shape that has a well in the middle for the cream cheese filling.
  • Make the cream cheese filling by placing the softened cream cheese and natural sweetener in a bowl. Mix well to combine. Divide this mixture evenly into the middle of each danish.
  • Place the cookie sheet with the danishes in the oven to bake for 9 -11 minutes or until the danishes are golden brown and dough is fully cooked. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile make the glaze by placing the natural sweetener in a small bowl, add just enough almond milk to make a thin glaze. If it gets too thin, add a tablespoon of natural sweetener, and if it is too thick, add a splash of almond milk.
  • Once the danishes are cool, drizzle glaze over and sprinkle with crushed almonds if desired.

“I just wanted to thank to Maria Emmerich and Craig Emmerich!

I bought their fertility and pregnancy package while we were trying to conceive another baby. Amazing info and the supplement list I needed that you can’t get from your doctor. We got pregnant with twins and Thank God I had a healthy pregnancy overall.

I believe those supplements Maria and Craig suggested just were enough to keep my body healthy besides Maria’s recipes. I wish I knew Maria and Craig while I was pregnant with my first. Again, thank you!!” – Dilek

    What is the macros/nutritional info for this Keto Danish recipe above? (Didn’t see them included)

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I added it above. 🙂

      • Debbie Tubbs says:

        I saw ur sweet video with your boys using pork panko! Once again, you’ve inspired me to try something new! These will be in my tummy soon! Luv u and ur sweet family!♥️♥️♥️♥️

    • Nancy Cherven says:

      why do nuts slow weight loss and cheese dosn’t?
      I guess if you can’t digest either, both are not good.

      • Maria Emmerich says:

        Yes, depending on the person both dairy and nuts can be an issue. That is why our cleanse book is dairy and nut free.

  • DebC says:

    Wow, I just bought a bag of pork rinds with my Walmart curbside order (actually ordered three bags but they were out of them. Who knew pork rinds were so popular?). I may have to try this recipe out.

  • Jel says:

    Is it possible to make the pork rind yourself, so I make the panko. It does not sell outside the US

  • Simon says:

    Hi Maria,
    We have a question about you recipe “Carnivore Quiche”. We try to write a comment on the recipe page but it’s not working. In the recipe, you use Ham diced. Where do you buy your ham without sugar? Do you cook it yourself? Do you but it? If you buy it, where do you buy it? What brand do you buy?
    Thank you very much,

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      If you can’t find it already diced without sugar in the label, then you can buy a ham and dice it. 🙂

  • Janet Kostechka says:

    Dear Maria: Thank you so much for this recipe. I want to surprise my husband with these for our fast-breaking meal tomorrow. I notice that this recipe does not include the egg yolk in the cream cheese filling (which is in the Fat Head Danish/Keto Kringle recipe). Did you find it was not necessary with the pork rind dough or should I add it for a more creamy filling? Again, I thank you and Craig for all you hard work and dedication to helping others learn and live a healthy lifestyle.

  • Donna says:

    I don’t know how you do it! I just made these and even over-baked them, and they are just ridiculously scrumptious!! Bravo!! 👏🏻👏🏻

  • Selena Merriman says:

    Ok, even though I like pork rinds, my initial reaction to this recipe was, “No way. That sounds disgusting.” But, I thought about it and became curious. So today I got the ingredients and made some and I am so glad that I did! These really are delicious and taste nothing like pork rinds. I even crushed the pork rinds myself so they were pretty course, and had no issues with the taste or texture. If you are on the fence about trying these, I encourage you to go for it. Thank you, Maria!

  • Emily J Buckshaw says:

    are all Prok Rhinds the same??? You can buy a huge container full at Costco (canada) for cheap . is there ingredients I should look for???

  • Lela Trecakov says:

    Amazing recipe! Thank you for great ideas! Must try them all
