Protein Churros (Sugar-Free & Gluten-Free)

Protein Churros (Sugar-Free & Gluten-Free)


Churros, a Spanish made dessert rolled into cinnamon laced sugar, that results in a treat that is sweet and crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside! This recipe will add a extra bit of protein to these giving you that mix between a sweet delicacy and you hitting them protein goals! 


1/2 cup sweet potato flour (see note 1 for more on this and subs)
1/2 cup vanilla pea protein powder (see note 2 for subs)
3 tablespoons liquid egg whites
2 tablespoons cartoned coconut milk (could sub with almond milk or regular cow’s)
2 tablespoons xylitol
1 tablespoon granulated stevia
4 tablespoons coconut oil


1. Melt the coconut oil. Once it’s melted, mix it in with the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl.

2. Mix the dough with your hands until it holds together.

3. Stick the dough in a piping back with a medium/large open star nozzle on it (see note 3 below for more on this).

4. Heat up a nonstick pan with a tiny bit  of PAM, low-calorie spray or 1/2 tsp of coconut oil. You don’t want a lot though, just enough to ensure the pan is properly nonstick.

5. Press out your churro shapes out of the piping bag and fry them on the pan (make sure the pan is set to low heat so as to prevent the churros from burning – you just want to cook them through and toast them up a bit).

6. Move the churros around with your hands so all sides cook evenly.

7. Once they’re all cooked, move them to a plate and cover them in granulated stevia. You could use some cinnamon too!

8. Once they’re ready, dip them in a cup of chocolate or some coffee!

Note 1
: If you don’t have or don’t want to get sweet potato flour, go ahead and substitute it with oat flour. It’ll work just as well and might actually work better! 

Note 2: If you want to sub the vanilla pea protein powder (because you can’t get it or can’t be bothered getting it), try this recipe using casein. 

Note 3: One of the biggest mistakes which often happens when making churros was trying to make them with the wrong piping nozzle. An open star nozzle (which is what you see in the pic above), should work best.
