Sugar Free Baked Churros
This delicious tasting recipe for homemade Sugar Free Baked Churros can also be made low in carbohydrates, gluten free or keto.
Start by preheating your oven to 400 and prepping 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Gently whip together the eggs and the vanilla extract in a small bowl. Then you can set this bowl aside.
Next in another small bowl, stir together the sugar alternative and the ground cinnamon. You can set this bowl aside as well.
For the next step we will heat up the mentioned ingredients in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Since we are using a brown sugar alternative, your results will not be exactly like they would be if you were using brown sugar. However, the results should be suitable for this recipe. Add the brown sugar alternative, water,and butter and stir continuously as you bring the mix to a boil.
Once the contents in the saucepan begin to boil, you can remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the flour. Tip:use a wooden spoon as this will become rather clumpy and you will need to break up the mixture. When you are able to form a ball transfer this to a mixing bowl.
Beat the churro batter to break it up and allow it to cool. Then you can beat in the eggs and vanilla. Transfer the mixture to your piping bag and pipe out your churros for baking. Two to four inch long churros are good for length.
Bake for 14-18 minutes or until they begin to brown and puff up. Remove the churros from the oven and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Alternatively, you can place the cinnamon sugar in a shallow bowl or plate and roll the churros in it.
As mentioned, the ridged shape of a churro comes from the star shaped tip that is used on the pastry bag that is used to pipe the dough.
There are piping 'guns' that can make the piping process really easy.
Even a common cookie press can do the job (love my cookie press!). What is important as far as looks go, is that you are getting an elongated shape with a ridge or ridges.
