This tasty churro protein muffin recipe will not sabotage your health goals. This high-protein, no-sugar-added keto muffin hits the sweet spot!

This churro protein muffin recipe uses almond flour, a low-carbohydrate and fibrous alternative to traditional flour. Almond flour is abundant in healthy fats to help keep blood sugars steady between meals and prevent midday energy slumps.
