Vegan Churros



  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil, for frying (I used a wok, which requires 2 to 3 cups of oil)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon


  • Boil the water in a medium-sized pan, then add the salt and 2 1/2 Tbsp. sugar until dissolved. Add the 2 Tbsp. oil and remove the pan from the stove. Add the flour and stir until well combined. Pour the mixture into a piping bag with large star tip.
  • Heat the frying oil over medium-high heat in a pan or wok. Squeeze churro-length pieces of batter into the pan and fry until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Combine the rest of the sugar and the cinnamon in a large plastic bag and shake until well combined. Place the churros one by one into the bag to coat evenly. Enjoy!
