For churro dough

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (if using unsalted butter)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 3/4 cup plant-based milk made with the NutraMilk (I used cashew milk)
  • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter/vegan butter
  • 1¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg or substitute or vegan egg replacer 

For cinnamon sugar coating

  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

For chocolate sauce

  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar (vegan opt. if necessary)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter made with the NutraMilk

For cashew milk

  • 1 cup (150g) cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon pink himalayan salt (optional)

For peanut butter

  • 2 cups (275g) peanuts (untoasted, unsalted)
  • pinch salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

For cashew Milk

  • Start by making fresh cashew milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place cashews in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense.
    • Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.
  • Making the peanut butter
    • Place peanuts in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 2-3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Add your flour, salt and sugar in a separate bowl and set aside.
  • Place your water, milk, butter and vanilla in small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Grab a wooden spoon in the meantime.
  • Once boiling, add your flour mixture and stir with the spoon until mixture comes together in a ball. This should only take 10 seconds or so. Do not over mix!
  • Turn OFF heat and add your egg. Mix quickly until egg is combined with the dough. Set aside.

  • Once dough has slightly cooled- place in round silicone mold or whatever mold you have at home.

  • Bake on an upper rack in your oven for about 15 minutes or until inside is JUST cooked through.
  • While baking, combine your cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Toss in your churros right when they come out of the oven! The sugar will not stick if you wait too long.

  • To make chocolate dipping sauce-melt chocolate in microwave or over double boiler and mix in peanut butter.
  • Serve with chocolate sauce on the side. Enjoy!
