Protein Sparing Churros

Who wants a guilt free protein packed keto churro? I do! I do!

What’s not to love about a churro? Especially when it is packed with protein and basically zero carbs! This recipe is allowed on my Protein Sparing Challenge (click HERE to learn more)!

I have many recipe testers and all of them thought my Protein Sparing Churros was the best protein sparing recipe ever!

You can either use my protein sparing bread recipe to make my healthy keto churros, or you can use my protein sparing angel food cake recipe. The angel food cake makes the churros sweeter, so it just depends on your preference.

To make the delicious chocolate sauce for my protein sparing churros, I used my favorite Primal Kitchen chocolate coconut collagen!

You are going to love this protein sparing churro recipe! Especially with them dipped in the delicious protein sparing chocolate sauce made with Primal Kitchen chocolate collagen.

To make my protein sparing churros, I fried them in Primal Kitchen avocado oil which works great for cooking!

I always have a bottle of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil in my kitchen!

  • 2 tablespoons Primal Kitchen Chocolate Collagen
  • 1/4 cup Natural Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch Redmond Real salt

“Hello Craig, Maria, Kai and Micah!

My journey to a healthy sized body has been a long one. Always the fattest kid in grade school, high school, and college, my life was typically an unhappy one as a young adult.

I ate the standard American diet my whole life with bouts of diet struggles until I learned about 5 years ago that I was a sugar addict. My weight topped out at 260 lbs and at only 5’4” I was unhealthy to say the least.

Enter Maria, Craig and PSMF (protein sparing modified fasting)!

I feel better now at 71 than I have my whole life! I have energy & stamina that I never knew possible and cannot accurately express my gratitude! Thank you so much Maria and Craig Emmerich!” Janet
