Vegan + Gluten Free Cinnamon Churros with a Chocolate Ganache



  • 900ml of light olive oil (for frying)
  • 210g of plain flour (I use gluten-free)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of light olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of caster sugar
  • 380ml of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
For the cinnamon sugar:
  • 50g of caster sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
For the chocolate ganache:
  • 1 can of coconut cream (cream only)
  • 150g of dairy-free dark chocolate (1 & 1/2 bars)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Pour the 900ml oil into a large saucepan and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add in the flour and baking powder. Mix until combined and set aside.
  4. Add the 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of caster sugar, water, salt and vanilla extract into a small saucepan, then place onto the hob on a medium heat and bring to the boil.
  5. Once it's boiled, pour straight over the flour mixture and mix well until a dough forms.
  6. Place the dough into a piping bag fitted with a star tip nozzle and pipe little lines of dough onto the greaseproof paper/tray.
  7. Heat up the oil in the large pan then when boiling, carefully drop around 4 churros into the oil and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. 
  8. Once they are golden, place on paper towel/kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil. Do this with all of the churros.
  9. Place the caster sugar and cinnamon into a bowl and mix together.
  10. Once all of the churros are fully cooked, roll them in the cinnamon-sugar and place aside whilst you make the chocolate ganache.
To make the chocolate ganache:
  1. Break up the chocolate bar and place into a bowl, then pop the coconut cream into a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat until boiling. Carefully pour the hot coconut cream over the chocolate, adding in the vanilla extract and leave it for a minute then stir until smooth and glossy. Dunk the delicious churros into the ganache and enjoy!
