Wholemeal Baked Churros
5 years ago



Churros! Those tasty fried doughy pastry things that are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Sounds too good to be healthy for you right? Well, I managed to turn these sensational treats into a guilt free dessert by swapping a few ingredients and baking them.


  • 250g wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50g coconut oil
  • Vanilla essence to taste
  • 300ml hot boiling water
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 3 tbl spoon of honey
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Cover two oven trays with baking paper and set aside.
  • Mix the hot water, coconut oil and vanilla extract in a jug.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour and baking powder together.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mix and add the water mixture.
  • Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until you get a ‘thickish texture’ which looks similar to mashed potatoes.
  • Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a decorator tip.
  • Pipe the dough into long, thin lengths on the oven trays. Use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut the end of the dough from the piping tip.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly puffed and deep golden brown.
  • Once cooked, sprinkle cinnamon or sugar on top.
