Method of Preparation:
For the churros:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
- Place the coconut oil in a large bowl and melt over a pan of boiling water.
- Add the coconut sugar, salt, coconut flour, gluten-free flour, and baking powder.
- Add the plant-based milk and mix well – I recommend adding the milk a small amount at a time until you get a soft batter that is firm enough to pipe into shapes. If you make the batter too wet, you won’t be able to pipe it into shapes. But if the batter does look too wet to pipe, place it in the fridge for an hour, and it will firm up. If it seems too dry, add an extra splash of milk.
- Transfer into a piping bag with a closed star tip.
- Pipe the batter into churros measuring around 3 ½ inches (9 cm) in length onto baking trays lined with greased baking paper.
- Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and an inserted skewer comes out clean – be careful not to over-bake!
- Meanwhile, mix the ingredients for the cinnamon sugar.
- Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the churros as soon as they are out of the oven – otherwise, it won’t stick to the churros.
- They will still be very soft when they come out of the oven but will firm up as they cool down.
- Taste best when fresh, but keep covered in the fridge for up to a few days – can be reheated in a dry frying pan or the oven.
