5. How to make
Makes about 20 mini Churros
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
½ teaspoon salt
⅓ cup unsalted butter
2½ cups Bob’s Red Mill paleo baking flour
¼ cup ground flaxseeds
¼ cup coconut sugar
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking pans and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon and the vanilla. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, stir together the brown rice syrup and salt with 1 cup water.
Add the butter and raise the temperature.
Heat until the butter melts, and the mixture starts to boil.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the flour, and flax seeds, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any clumps. The mixture will start to take on a doughy consistency and pull away from the sides of the pan.
Stir in the egg mixture until fully incorporated.
Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a 1-inch star tip or a large Ziploc bag with the corner snipped with a 1-inch opening.
Pipe the dough into 3-inch pieces on the prepared baking pans. Leave about 2 inches between the churros.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating halfway through until the churros are cooked through and golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
On a plate or in a shallow bowl, combine the coconut sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Roll the churros in the cinnamon-sugar coating and serve immediately.
Dairy-Free Dulce de Leche
Makes about 1½ cups
1 cup packed pitted dates, soaked in warm water for 15 minutes
¼ cup 1 tablespoon warm water
¼ cup brown rice syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon fleur de sel
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust the consistency with water as desired.
Store at room temperature for 2 to 3 days or in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The mixture will solidify when it gets cold, so leave it at room temperature for a couple of hours before serving or gently warm it in a pan.
