Instructions
  1. In a dish, combine 1/4 cup sugar with 1 tablespoon cinnamon, set aside.
  2. Heat water, coconut oil, and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a medium-large pot over medium-high heat. Remove from heat once boiling.
  3. Lower heat and return to stove then add flour, vanilla, salt, vegan egg, and baking powder to liquid mixture.
  4. Using a mixing spoon, stir until well-combined (dough pulls away from pot sides forming a ball and is smooth in texture). Once finished, remove from heat and let cool ~10 minutes.
  5. While the dough cools, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add avocado oil.
  6. While the oil heats up, and once dough is cooled enough to handle, scoop dough into a pastry bag fitted with a medium to large open star piping tip.
  7. Pipe 3” long churros into oil, using a knife to separate piped churro from piping tip.
  8. Fry numerous churros at once for ~6 minutes, flipping half way. Once done frying, place on-to a paper towel lined plate for ~3 minutes.
  9. Next, roll churros in cinnamon sugar mixture, and lightly tap off any excess cinnamon sugar.
  10. Divide into 4 portions, optionally serve with chocolate dipping sauce and fresh berries.
  11. Serve, store, and enjoy!
