Is there anything that beats the fragrant scent of freshly baked croissants in the morning? We think not! That's why after our hugely successful low-fat sourdough croissant recipe, we bring you a new take on this most beloved treat: gluten-free croissants.
The best thing about our sourdough croissant recipe, apart from using delicious sourdough, is the lack of butter or other processed fats. By using a Chinese patisserie technique, we were able to get flaky croissants with a fraction of the fats of the classic pastry. If you are into low-fat recipes, check that out!
Today our objective is to help people with gluten intolerance make croissants at home from scratch. Moreover, we have made some modifications to our recipe, reducing the preparation time to one day. By the way, this recipe is also dairy-free.
The biggest obstacle that gluten-free bakes face is the lack of elasticity of the dough. Dough elasticity is particularly important for bakes that require folding. Croissants are such bakes. But have no fear, we have figured out the right balance of ingredients needed to make this work. Just check out the ingredients list below and follow our easy steps.
