Easy Protein Churros

@counting_zacros has put his own protein-packed spin on this delicious treat. If you’re unfamiliar with churros, they’re a type of fried dough eaten in Spain, Portugal and parts of Latin America. Just imagine freshly fried donuts at the fun fair.

Churros that align with your macros – yes please.

And you get to pick a sauce of your choice. Frankly, they’re tasty enough on their own, but if you like to dip your churros, why not try some Sugar-Free Syrup, or even melt some Protein Spread for an extra hit of protein.

Servings
Makes 6 churros

Ingredients:

Churros:

  • 35g plain flour
  • 20g Vanilla Casein
  • 10g Vanilla Whey
  • 100g low fat Greek yogurt

Dusting:

  • 1 tsp granulated stevia
  • 1 tsp stevia

Method

  1. Sift your flour, casein and whey into a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. 

  2. Next, add Greek yoghurt and stir to create your dough. If the mixture is slightly too thick, you might need an extra splash of your choice of milk.  

  3. Once your dough is ready, place into a piping bag with a star nozzle. 

  4. Squeeze out the dough into as many churros as you like (this recipe makes roughly 6 in total, depending how big you make them). 

  5. When piped out, place them in an air fryer for 8-10 minutes on 180C. 

  6. While your churros are cooking, add your dusting ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir to combine. 

  7. Once the churros are cooked, remove from air fryer, sprinkle with the dusting and allow to cool slightly. 

  8. Enjoy them while they’re still warm.
