Ingredients

Pastry

Filling

  • 1/4 cup Pyure Organic Hazelnut Spread with Cacoa OR ChocZero Hazelnut Chocolate Spread
  • Egg Wash
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp water

Glaze

Instructions

  • Add the Keto Bread and Pastry Flour to a bowl along with the sweetener. Whisk together.
  • Add the cold butter pieces.
  • Stir to coat the butter with flour.
  • Use a pastry cutter or fork to break the butter into smaller pieces.
  • Add the cold water and stir until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Form the dough into a rough ball using your hands (it's okay if it's a little dry, just push everything together and gather up as much flour as you can from the bowl to form the ball).
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30min - 1 hour.
  • Un-wrap the dough and place it onto a floured piece of parchment paper (use additional keto flour or vital wheat gluten to flour the surface).
  • Flour the top of the dough and place another piece of parchment paper on top.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a rough rectangle. The butter will be quite chunky and messy right now, this is okay.
  • Fold one end of the rectangle inward then fold the other inward as if you were folding a brochure (see the video for more help).
  • Turn the dough 90*. Flour the surface as well as the top of the dough and again, roll the dough out between the two pieces of parchment paper into a rectangle. Repeat step 10 once more.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to chill for at least 10minutes (30 is best if you have the time).
  • Un-wrap the dough and repeat steps 9 - 12 again (the dough should get smoother as you go and the butter will become more streaky).
  • After the second refrigeration, repeat steps 9-12 one more time for a total of 6 stages of rolling and folding.
  • After 10-30min in the fridge, un-fold your dough. Roll it out into one large rectangle this time (roll both width-wise and length-wise). It should be relatively thin but still thick enough that it won't easily tear. (Don't worry if your rectangle is not perfect).
  • Slice the dough into 4 smaller rectangles and slice each one in half to form squares.
  • Place a tablespoon of hazelnut spread in the center of one of each of the halves.
  • Place the other piece of dough on top of the piece with hazelnut spread and gently press the edges together with your fingers. Then use a fork to go around and seal the edges of the two pieces together.
  • Poke 2 fork holes in the top of each pastry then brush with the egg wash (1 egg yolk whisked with 1 tbsp water).
  • Place the pastries on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20-22min or until puffed and golden brown. (TIP: Wrap the baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate your pastries for 20-30min prior to baking to prevent butter from leaking out as they bake-optional).
  • Let the pastries cool for a few minutes before serving. Top with a simple glaze if you wish (optional). Just whisk together the powdered monkfruit sweetener and milk until smooth and spoon over each pastry. The glaze will set as the pastries cool. Enjoy your Keto Nutella Puff Pastries!

Notes

Ingredients Links For 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. 
  • 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.
 

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. 
 

Nutella Puff Pastry Storage Instructions

  • 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.
