These classic Paleo Mexican Churros are deliciously crunchy and sweet. The perfect dessert for Cinco de Mayo!
I’m just going to go ahead and apologize for all the Mexican recipe that are coming your way. Out of the next few weeks I think they’re maybe 3 recipes that aren’t Mexican. Cinco de Mayo here we come. Hopefully you love Mexican food as much as I do in which case you’ll be pretty happy in the coming weeks.
When I set out to make Churros I was worried about the consistency of the dough. Paleo bread doesn’t really give you that crunchy outside but soft chewy middle. I experimented with a few different ratios of flour and believe I’ve come up with the perfect blend for these Paleo Churros. They’ve got that classic crunch and the middle is soft chewy and overall what dreams are made of.
When I was done taking pictures I took a plate of them outside to Alex who had been working in the yard all day. He has a major sweet tooth so sweets don’t last long in our house. Remember when he at the whole batch of 30 Earl Grey Truffles in less than 1 full day? Yeah, so when he saw the Churros and said he only wanted one I couldn’t believe it. One bite though and his eyes lit up and he kept grabbing for more. 5 minutes later and we’re out of a whole batch of Churros. I guess when you swim a few miles per week and bike 10 miles 3 days a week you can do that sort of thing. Maybe I need to enlist him as my personal trainer!
After frying up the Churros I tossed them in a coconut sugar cinnamon mixture. They would also be fantastic dipped in chocolate or served with my Ancho Chili Chocolate Ice Cream.
