Oopsie Rolls Sugar Free Low Carb Danishes

I was inspired by a mama on the main THM board on facebook. She took a low carb bread recipe and made a version of a danish. I took her idea and decided o create a recipe that can be followed. This recipe is by far one of my favorite recipes I have ever made. The cloud bread has a similar texture to a homemade eclair.

This recipe does have a few steps but they are all easy steps. This recipe is also special ingredient free. You can get all ingredients at your local grocery store. My bag of xanthan gum was purchased from local WalMart. The xanthan gum is optional though, it just helps thicken the cream cheese mixture.

For your jam topping, make slimbelly jelly, make a homemade sugar free jam or use a store bought version. There are plenty of sugar free jam recipes out there. I used a blueberry jam to top mine. It was all I had but I love blueberries. I left a couple plain and a few with less jam for my hubby. He has always liked the plain cream cheese version.

These are so good! If you have the ingredients, make them today. These are going to be made regularly in my house. I have been looking for portable things for my hubby to take to work with him. He is also a little on the picky side as well. It seems that so many things that are good for you, he doesn’t like. Now I have something to send in his lunch bag that he likes and follows the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan. This recipe makes 12 servings, but I wont lie, I eat 2 danishes at a time. I used Gentle Sweet as my sweetener in this recipe. If you dont have Gentle Sweet, I suggest Swerve Confectioners or Sukrin Icing Sweetener. Gentle Sweet is also half as sweet as sugar, so double the sweetener if you are not using GS.

Oopsie Roll Sugar Free Low Carb Danishes


  • 6 Eggs Seperated
  • 6 T Cream Cheese softened
  • 2 Small Pinches Salt
  • 1/2 T Gentle Sweet double if using a different sweetener
  • 1/4 t Cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 t Vanilla Extract
  • 6 oz Cream Cheese Softened
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 T Gentle Sweet double if using a different sweetener
  • 1 t Extract I used 1/2 t Vanilla and 1/2 t Almond Extract
  • 1/4 t Xanthan Gum
  • 6-12 T Sugar Free Jam


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place parchment paper on two baking sheets.
  • 2.Place egg yolks, cream cheese, salt, and sweetener into the bowl of your mixer. Beat until no lumps are left. Pour into a bowl and thoroughly clean your mixer.
  • Add egg whites to cleaned mixer bowl. Add cream of tartar and beat until stiff peaks form. This will take a few minutes. I worked on something else in the kitchen while they were beating.
  • Add the egg yolk mixture to the mixture with the beaten egg whites. Carefully mix/fold the mixtures together. You dont want to over mix, just mix until combined.
  • Onto the prepared pans, scoop about 1/2 of a cup of the mixture onto the parchment paper. Make 12 equal sized rounds. Flatten slightly and bake for 10 minutes.
  • While the oopsie rolls are baking, lets start on the cream cheese filling. Add cream cheese, eggs, and sweetener to the mixing bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add extracts and xanthan gum, both optional. Beat for about 1 minute or until thickened.
  • When the 10 minutes are up, take the pans from the oven. In the middle of each roll add 1/12th of the cream cheese mixture. I used a cookie scoop and then a spatula for the last one.
  • Place them back in the oven for 5 more minutes. When the time is up, take the pans back out of the oven. Carefully top each roll with 1/2-1 tablespoon sugar free jam. I left some with only cream cheese for my hubby and a few with not even 1/2 T of the jam, again for my husband. I used the whole 1 T for my danishes.
  • Place back in the oven for approximately 10 more minutes. I baked mine until they were beginning to brown on the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool. Honesty here, I ate 2 hot out of the oven. I put the rest in the fridge to store.

      I am so glad your husband likes them!! Now that it’s getting a little cooler, I need to start making them again. They always hit the spot!

  • Can you freeze these? How long do they last in the fridge?

      I haven’t tried freezing these yet. It might be worth a try freezing one for a few weeks and seeing how the roll does after it thaws. They keep in the fridge for a week at least.
