Low Carb Doughnut Churro Bites Recipe
Doughnut cravings are legit. I love eating doughnuts with my morning coffee. Speaking of doughnuts, did you know you can spell it doughnut or donut. Donut is the Americanize version. Either way, they are delicious but filled with tons of fat and carbs. I don’t mind the fat but I don’t want the carbs!!
Luckily I came up with a fabulous keto donut recipe that is only 0.7 g carbs per bite! These donut bites are buttery, soft and tastes like a churro since they are dusted with cinnamon and monkfruit. Now you can satisfy your doughnut cravings with these churro bites!
Protein Powder in Keto Baking
I like using protein powder in keto baking. Not only does it supply extra protein in your meal, but it substitutes as a flavorless flour and this non-gritty. Protein powder can produce a dry baked good, so make sure you balance it out by adding lots of liquid and fat.
My favorite protein powder to mix and bake with is by Perfect Keto. Their whey protein powders are keto approved, come from grass-fed animals, and contain a small amount of MCT oils. The best protein powder flavors to use in recipe are unflavored or vanilla. You can save 15% off your first order with my discount code KETOFOCUS15 or just click the link above.
Substitutes for Sour Cream
The sour cream is in this recipe to provide moisture. Protein powder can produce a dry, crumbly baked good. The sour cream adds fat and moisture to help balance out the protein powder. It also provides a creamy flavor.
Sour cream is keto approved. One tablespoon of sour cream has 0.3 grams of carbs so it is keto friendly. It is also higher in fat and has protein.
If you don’t want to use sour cream in this doughnut recipe, you can substitute with a full fat greek yogurt or heavy cream.

These keto doughnut holes are an easy treat to make, but you can prep them ahead of time too because they stay fresh at room temperature, left out on the counter.
If you want to prep up as make ahead breakfast or bite sized keto dessert, you can make these and portion them out throughout the week.
