My absolute favourite treat whilst enjoying some holiday sun is a fresh sugary churro. And at about a million syns they’re really not the most ideal treat whilst following Slimming World! So, I set to work on making a low syn version, without much hope of success.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
So imagine my surprise when out of the oven popped these beauties!! 1 Syn Churros!!
They taste as good as the deep fried version and the Sukrin coating works an absolute treat – there really is no replacing it in this recipe as you must have the sugary crunch to the outside which you just won’t get with a powdered sweetener.
If you don’t like cinnamon then leave it out, if you’d like a chocolatey treat then melt some dark chocolate and drizzle over the top (this will increase the syns but I can vouch that it is sooooo worth it!)
There is only one downside to these 1 Syn Churros: you won’t be able to stop eating them!

What is Sukrin?
Sukrin make a range of all natural sugar substitutes, and whole food flours. This recipe calls for Sukrin 1 which is their granulated sugar alternative. They also make Sukrin Gold (a brown sugar replacement) and Sukrin Icing, which is a zero calorie icing sugar substitute.
They don’t taste artificial in the slightest – pretty damn amazing. I don’t think we could bake things like these 1 Syn Churros without Sukrin 1.
You can of course use whichever sweetener you want, but as we’ve only used Sukrin we can’t guarantee the results.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
You will also need…
For this recipe you will need a piping bag and star nozzle. We like to use disposable piping bags, as it can be a bit messy cleaning a reusable one.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Butter flavours are ideal for this 1 Syn Churros recipe.
