These low carb churro bites are made so quickly and easily, that you’ll be shocked! That’s what makes them a great keto dessert in my book. 

By now, you all must know how much this girl loves a simple recipe that absolutely delicious! This recipe is no different.

You’ll simply mix your wet and dry ingredients separately and then combine the two. Then it’s just a matter of baking them dunking them in melted butter and then rolling them in a cinnamon “sugar”. 

Note that I chose to use salted butter for the melted butter needed to roll the granulated sugar-substitute. I feel the extra salt really amplifies the churro taste, so there is that to keep in mind.

Ingredients Needed

The following is a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these mini keto churros. You can find the full printable recipe at the bottom of the post

Tools Needed

To make these little keto churro minis you’ll need most importantly, a 24 cavity muffin pan.

I used a non-stick metal pan but you can also choose to use a silicone 24 cavity muffin pan, in which case, you should place a baking sheet underneath so that the mini’s do not overbake.

But don’t worry, if you don’t have a mini muffin man you can also bake these in a regular muffin tin. I’ve included the baking time for both below.

You’ll also need mixing bowls and an electric mixer (hand mixer or stand mixer).

I always like to use a Silicone spatula when using an electric mixer to scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is being mixed well.

Sugar- Substitute Options

When it comes to choosing which sugar-substitute to use for these sugar-free churro minis, I have some options for you. My two favorite granulated sugar substitutes for this recipe are Lakanto Monk Fruit or Swerve. They both have a granulated version that works very well for the cinnamon sugar. It’s what gives these minis their churro feel and taste!

You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure. But if using Pyure you will want to use 1/2 the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter option.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.

Keto Churros Minis

Yield: 30
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Calling all churro fans! These keto churros (minis) are like little clouds bites of cinnamon goodness. They’re the perfect substitute for traditional churros but without all of the sugar and carbs. The dough is made with almond flour and the minis are dunked in melted butter and rolled in a combo of granulated sugar substitute and cinnamon powder.

Ingredients

Cinnamon Sugar-Substitute Topping

  • 1/4 cup of melted salted butter, plus 1 tablespoon 
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar granulated substitute
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium-sized bowl combine the almond flour, baking powder, salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl using an electric mixer blend on high the butter with the sugar substitute until the mixture is light and fluffy and well incorporated.
  4. Next, add the room temperature cream cheese and vanilla extract and mix well.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time making sure to mix well after each addition.
  6. Lastly, add the dry ingredients: the almond flour, baking powder, salt and mix well until batter is fully combined.
  7. Distribute the batter evenly into a well-greased 24 cup capacity mini muffin pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, when they are slightly browned and an inserted toothpick comes out clean they're ready.
  8. Allow the minis to cool for about 5 minutes.
  9. Churro topping: In a small bowl melt the salted butter in the microwave. This will be the butter used to dunk the minis. Set aside.
  10. In another small bowl combine the granulated sugar substitute and cinnamon powder. Set aside.
  11. Using a spoon dunk the minis into the melted butter bowl then roll each mini in the cinnamon "sugar" mixture until evenly coated on all sides.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
  13. You can store the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days but these have the best flavor when eaten the same day.

Notes

If making in a regular-sized 12 capacity cupcake/ muffin pan bake for 22-25 minutes.

This recipe also doubles easily.

If you need to freeze these churros, I would do so without the butter and cinnamon sugar sub coating. Then once they defrost completely proceed to add the topping.
