These Keto Nutella Pastries make the perfect keto breakfast or sweet low carb snack. 

If you're a Nutella lover like me, or just a fan of hazelnut or pastries in general…then you'll love this recipe! 

The keto pastry itself requires a bit work to prepare but thankfully the pastry dough can be frozen or the pastries prepped ahead of time to make for a quick and easy low carb treat!

I promise these will not disappoint!

Ingredients In Keto Nutella Puff Pastry

  • Keto Bread and Pastry Flour – This is a keto flour alternative to white flour that I developed and is now available for purchase on my website. It acts and tastes much more like white flour than almond or coconut flour and gives baked goods a lightness and more “rise” than other low carb flours. It can be used in all kinds of pastries and breads including; croissants, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, flatbreads, dinner rolls, bagels, muffins, cakes, pies etc.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener (optional) – This is a great tasting sweetener that blends really beautifully into baked goods, it also works fantastic in glazes because of its similarity to powdered sugar. 
  • Salted Butter – This is what creates the beautiful flaky layers in our keto pastry dough. If using unsalted butter, simply add 1/4 tsp salt to this recipe.
  • Cold Water – It's important that the water is cold to keep the butter from melting. 
  • Pyure Organic Hazelnut Spread with Cacoa – This is a delicious keto alternative to Nutella, you can also make your own keto chocolate hazelnut spread or use ChocZero Hazelnut Chocolate Spread.
  • Egg Yolk – This is used in our egg wash. I find this gives a nicer golden colour than using a whole egg!
  • Almond Milk or Light Coconut Milk – This is for the glaze, you can use any milk you prefer and add more or less to thin the glaze.

Tools I Used To Make Keto Nutella Puff Pastry

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Pastry Cutter or Fork
  • Spoon
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Parchment Paper
  • Rolling Pin

Tips For Making Keto Nutella Puff Pastry

  • When rolling and folding your pastry dough, be sure to use vital wheat gluten and/or keto flour on-top-of and under the dough to prevent the butter from sticking. 
  • If at any time your dough becomes too tough to roll, wrap it back up in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour. The gluten needs time to rest and relax.
  • Usually this dough takes anywhere from 4-6 rounds of rolling and folding to become the correct texture with the butter becoming streaky rather than chunky. If by 4 rounds of rolling and folding your dough seems ready, don't continue with 2 more rounds of it, just move on to rolling out your dough to form the pastries.
  • To make the BEST possible pastries, use the longer refrigeration times. Refrigeration helps to prevent the butter from becoming too soft. The cold butter is necessary to form the beautiful layers we all know and love in puff pastry. It also gives the gluten time to rest and relax so you can roll the dough out more easily. 
  • To prevent butter from leaking out of your pastry, after forming them simply place them back in the fridge for 20-30min to chill (cover with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out). If butter does happen to leak out of your pastry, DON'T WORRY, they will still taste delicious and puff up beautifully!
  • This pastry dough is great with a peanut butter or chocolate filling as well if you aren't a big hazelnut fan.
  • If you aren't using salted butter, be sure to add 1/4 tsp salt to the dough.

Can I substitute the Keto Bread & Pastry Flour for almond flour or coconut flour?

  • No, unfortunately the Keto Bread and Pastry Flour is not an easy substitute. Almond Flour and Coconut Flour have a much denser texture and won't allow the pastry to rise properly. They also don't provide the same light texture. I highly recommend checking out the other things you can make with my Keto Bread and Pastry Flour in the recipe index of my site as well as on the Pastry Flour Product Page if you are still unsure about purchasing it!
  • But you CAN try my original Keto Puff Pastry for this recipe if you cannot purchase the flour. It's a slightly denser dough but still produces beautiful pastry.

Can You Freeze Nutella Puff Pastry?

  • Yes! You can freeze these pastries in an airtight container after they cool. I recommend putting wax paper above and below them in the container to prevent freezer burn. 
  • You can also freeze the puff pastry dough after rolling and folding it (wrap with plastic wrap and place in a ziplock bag). Then thaw it over-night in the fridge when you plan to use it next. 
  • Lastly, you can freeze the prepared pastries themselves and bake them off from frozen. Just be sure to add a few extra minutes to your baking time.
