Easy, Delicious, Healthy Churros


Easy, delicious, healthy oven baked Churros

You may say these are not healthy, but a healthy lifestyle is all about balance and on balance these are healthier than the traditional deep fried Mexican dough version

This puff pastry version is really easy and the aroma you get from the cinnamon sugar is wonderfully warming and provides an inviting fragrance as a bonus

I served these as part of a vegan Mexican night I had last week and they went down a storm. I served vegan pulled pork (see earlier post), vegan chorizo empanadas (see future post) and Mr. B our Harvard bartending graduate (a gift I gave him for this exact purpose) made a variety of tequila based drinks. I hope you like them as much as our guests did!



  • 1 sheet thawed vegan puff pastry
  • ¼ cup raw cane sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup melted vegan butter
  • Coconut oil for greasing


  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1 can coconut crème


  • Preheat the oven to 350F/250c. Unfold and cut puff pastry into 1 inch by 6 inch strips
  • Place the strips on a lightly greased piece of parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown
  • Whilst the pastry is baking, mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl
  • Melt the vegan butter
  • Once the pastry is cooked, remove from the oven, brush with the butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture
  • To make the caramel, blend the dates, then add the coconut to the blender and blend till smooth, pour into a bowl and serve with the hot churros, straight out of the oven
