These awesome and easy homemade churros are pretty addictive as well. Thought you might want to know!
Servings: 4


  • Oil for deep frying


  • 1 cup/240 milliliters milk / oat milk
  • cup/100 grams butter / plant based butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar / monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup/140 grams flour / all purpose gluten free flour
  • 3 large eggs


  • 1 cup sugar / monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 flat teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Add milk, sugar, salt and butter to a pot. Bring to a boil, add the flour and whisk quickly until a uniform dough is obtained. Remove from stove top and let it cool off for 10 minutes.
  • Add the eggs, one by one, and mix after each one. The dough will feel like it falls apart and forms again, so keep mixing until you reach a smooth texture. Cover and let it rise in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Fill ¾ of a small pot with frying oil and heat it up on medium heat until it reaches 350-375 °F (175-190 °C). This will take about 10 minutes. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can add a drop of dough to the oil after 5 minutes and see if there are bubbles around it. The bubbles indicate that the oil is ready.
  • Insert the dough into a piping bag with an open star pastry tip, squeeze out a piece as long as you want, cut it with scissors and let it fall straight into the oil. Fry until golden all around.
  • Combine the coating ingredients in a bowl.
  • Remove the churros from the pot and transfer them to the coating bowl. Roll each churro until well coated and serve with chocolate ganache or peanut butter for dipping.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to baked the churros?
Yes, but it’s trickier to get the best result. Here’s what you should do: preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C), line up a sheet pan with parchment paper and spray oil evenly. Place the dough pieces on the parchment paper and spray them generously. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the churros are golden and fully cooked.
