Easy Low Fat Raisin Croissant Recipe!


Hey All!

With back to school in full swing we needed some healthy quick meals and snacks to get us going each busy day. I created one on the go treat that is a snack and meal in one using California Raisins! My family really enjoy foods we can hold and eat while we’re on the go, so Low Fat Raisin Croissants were the perfect recipe for me to invent for them. I love using California Raisins in my recipes as they are an all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about sending with your kids as they head back to school or offering as an after-school snack. The ingredient list says it all: Raisins. On their own they are convenient and portable in itself. But with the added cover of a low fat tasty Croissant it makes it all the more easier to eat your raisins on the go. California Raisins are a great choice for wholesome, healthy, on-the-go snacking. They are a great value, too! According to the USDA, raisins are the most economical dried fruit. California Raisins come by their sweetness naturally. With California Raisins, the nutrition label tells a great story: Zero fat, no cholesterol and no added sugar. Plus, raisins offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium, and 6% of your daily iron (per quarter cup serving).

My family gets extremely excited every time I make these. I often times get a hooray when I say I’m making them. They are especially great because they are super easy and quick to make.

Here is how to make my Low Fat Raisin Croissants:

You Need:

  • 1 cup of California Raisions
  • 1 package of Low Fat Mini Croissant Rolls from your grocery stores refrigerated aisle.
  • 2 Eggs
  • Flour for rolling out dough
  • Parchment Paper for baking
  • Powdered Sugar for garnish


First you cut out your Low Fat Croissant dough into triangles.


Next you place your raisins in the center of the triangle of the croissant.


You then roll up your croissant starting at the widest part of the dough to the front point of the dough. You curve the sides in so it looks more like a croissant.


Beat your two eggs and then brush the egg onto the croissant so you get that golden color when you bake.


Bake at 375 for 10-11 minutes until golden and then let cool for 10-15 and then sprinkle with a tiny bit of powdered sugar. The sugar doesn’t add much sweetness as the Raisins are sweet enough for the entire croissant.


We pack up our croissant and California Raisins and hit the road during those busy school day weekdays.


I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
