  1. 1.In a large bowl, mix together the flour, yeast, warm water, and sugar substitute until a dough forms. Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. 2.Roll the dough out into a rectangle and spread the softened butter over the top. Fold the dough in thirds like a letter, and then roll it out again. Repeat this process two more times, then cover the dough and let it rest for another 30 minutes.
  3. 3.Roll the dough out into a large rectangle and cut it into triangles. Place a spoonful of chocolate chips at the wide end of each triangle, then roll up the dough towards the point. Place the croissants on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let them rise for 15-20 minutes.
  4. 4.Preheat the oven to 375°F. Brush the croissants with an egg wash and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
