The combination of buttery and flaky croissants with creamy almond filling and crunchy almonds makes for a delicious treat enjoyed by many. Almond croissants are typically made with ingredients that can cause a spike in blood glucose levels, such as refined flour, sugar, and butter. When you eat such a high-carbohydrate food, your body breaks down the carbohydrates into glucose and releases them into your bloodstream. This causes hyperglycemia.

Having almond croissants without spiking blood glucose
• Consuming croissants made of refined flour leads to a significant increase in blood glucose and insulin levels. Consider switching to low-carb flour like almond flour or coconut flour for better results.
• Reduce the portion of the meal or make it more protein based by adding eggs to the dough.
• Try reducing the amount of sugar or use natural sweeteners like honey, jaggery, and stevia. This reduces the blood glucose load.
• Consider adding cheese or other healthy fats to balance the overall glycemic index.

Almond croissants can be made glucose-friendly and enjoyed without worrying about their impact on blood sugar levels. This can be achieved by replacing refined white flour with low-carb flour, increasing protein content, and reducing the sugar in the croissant dough. Thus, almond croissants can also be turned into a healthy dish.
