Easy Keto Churros (Inspired By Disney’s Recipe!)

Keto Churros (Disney Inspired)

yield: 16 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 2 MINUTES

total time: 17 MINUTES

Ingredients

Churro dough:

Cinnamon coating:

Additional ingredients:

Directions

1

In a deep pan or dutch oven, add 4-5 cups of oil to use for frying churros. Turn stovetop to medium heat to start heating the oil up until it reaches 350 degrees.

2

In a small bowl, mix together a tablespoon each of cinnamon and Swerve and set aside for dusting later on.

3

In a large bowl, whisk together coconut flour, almond flour, whey protein, and xanthan gum.

4

In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, add in butter, granular Swerve, vanilla extract, and water, stirring constantly. The butter and sweetener will meltdown after about 2 minutes. Do not let the ingredients boil as this will make a caramel.

5

Pour butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir. Add in the eggs and mix until you get a thick dough-like batter.

6

Add batter into a piping bag or cake decorating tool. Squeeze batter out in 4-5" strips into oil and let fry up for about 1 minute, turning the churros in the oil as needed to evenly fry.

7

Remove the churros from the oil and place on a paper towel to soak up any extra oil. While hot, sprinkle the cinnamon Swerve mixture over the churros.

8

If desired, melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 15-second intervals until fully melted to serve alongside your churros. Enjoy the keto churros while warm!

keto churros on a plate with chocolate

Looking for an impressive keto dessert?

If you’ve been to Disney and felt like you were missing out after smelling the warm cinnamon sugar scent of their freshly fried churros, today is the day we change all that.

Lina made Disney’s famous carb-filled churros recipe over on Hip2Save, so after seeing that, we knew that we had to make our own keto churros right here on Hip2Keto!

This keto churro recipe is a fun opportunity to get the whole family involved.

The boys love it when I ask for their help in the kitchen, and I always appreciate the little helping hands, especially since we have plenty of time now to spend together!

Another plus of this recipe is that the traditional sugar is replaced with Swerve, so serving up a dessert that my boys love that also isn’t full of sucralose is a win-win for mom and the kids. 🙌

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • Anytime a recipe calls for frying, I use my Dutch Oven. For this recipe, fill it up with 4-5 cups of oil to make sure you have enough space from the bottom to let the churros float and brown evenly.

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!

Fiber and erythritol, the main ingredient in Swerve, does not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols.

    What oil for frying?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Yadira! You can use avocado or coconut oil. Hope this helps!

      • Yadira

        Ok thanks did not think that was a keto friendly oil though?

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re welcome! Thanks for asking. Sorry for any confusion. For strict keto make sure to use a high smoke point, so avocado or coconut oil is going to be the best option.

      • Yadira

        Awesome thanks

        • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

          Hi Yadira! Your so very welcome❤

  2. Dina Abida

    can we skip the protein powder?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Dina! The powder helps soak up the liquid and bind it together. You could replace it with extra flour if you do not have the protein powder. Hope this helps!

  3. Veronique

    Hi can I make the batter ahead of time ?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can make it and put it in the piping bag the day before and refrigerate it. I would recommend setting it out until it reaches room temperature before frying them.
