  • Makes 6 churros


For the Churros:

For the Dusting:

  • 1 tsp granulated stevia
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • Sift the flour and Vanilla Protein Powder into a mixing bowl and whisk to combine thoroughly, ensuring even distribution.
  2. Mix in Greek Yogurt:
    • Add the Greek yogurt to your dry ingredients and stir until a dough forms. If your mixture feels too thick, gradually add a splash of milk to achieve the right consistency.
  3. Pipe the Churros:
    • Spoon your dough into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Carefully pipe out the dough into churro shapes, aiming for about 6 churros total, depending on the size you prefer.
  4. Cook in Air Fryer:
    • Place the piped churros in an air fryer and cook for 8-10 minutes at 180°C (356°F), or until they are golden and crisp.
  5. Prepare the Dusting:
    • While the churros are cooking, mix the granulated stevia and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  6. Dust and Serve:
    • Once cooked, remove the churros from the air fryer, sprinkle generously with your stevia-cinnamon mix, and let them cool slightly before serving.
  7. Enjoy:
    • Serve the churros warm and enjoy a delicious treat that’s both nutritious and satisfying.
