Calories 300kcal


  • 64 grams almond flour
  • 28 grams coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks (ground)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 240 milliliters water
  • 57 grams grass-fed butter
  • 2 tablespoons Swerve Sweetener (or xylitol*)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup xylitol sweetener (ground)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (ground)
  • chocolate sauce (ground)


  • Whisk together in a medium bowl almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk and xanthan gum.
  • Set aside.
  • Heat up water, butter, sweetener and salt in medium pot (or Dutch oven) until it just begins to simmer.
  • Lower heat to low and add in flour mixture, mixing constantly to incorporate.
  • Continue to cook and stir until the dough pulls away from the pan and forms into a ball, 1-3 minutes.
  • Transfer dough back to the bowl and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • The dough should still be warm, but not hot enough to scramble the eggs.
  • Add in one egg at a time, mixing until fully incorporated.
  • The dough will be very stiff, but keep going until fully mixed in.
  • Mix in vanilla extract.
  • The final dough should still be stiff and form into a ball easily, but will also be very elastic.
  • You can use a hand mixer here, but we prefer not to get another appliance dirty here.Allow the dough to rest until it comes to room temperature (10-15 minutes), prepping your frying station in the meantime.
  • We found that with as little as 3/4 to 1-inch deep oil these guys fry great.
  • So we suggest you start with a little oil and add in more if need be.
  • Just be sure to use a pot with high-sides for safety and that your oil is nice and hot (350°F if we're being precise).
  • Spoon dough into a piping bag with a star tip (say #824 works great).
  • Pipe out a strip of dough into the hot oil, snipping off the end with kitchen shears (or clean scissors!).
  • Pipe out however many fit comfortably in your pot (we did 4 x 7-inch long ones at a time).
  • Fry until deeply golden 2-5 minutes (really depends on your temperature, pot etc here so just keep an eye out for the first ones).
  • Flip them over and continue to fry until deep golden all over.
  • Transfer churros to a paper towel-lined plate, and toss in the sweetener and cinnamon coating mix while still warm.
  • Like any type of churro, these are best enjoyed just-fried! But, they're also surprisingly good the day after a quick warm up in your oven (or electric oven!).
  • Oh, and you can always refrigerate the dough overnight (fully covered in the pastry bag so it doesn't get crusty).
  • Just be sure to bring the dough back to room temperature before using again.
