For the Sugar Topping:

  1. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar until well combined.
  2. Combine water and coconut oil in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  3. Once boiling, pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and beat until thick dough forms.
  4. When the mixture has cooled slightly, add eggs, one at a time, and mix until the dough comes back together.
  5. Scoop dough into a decorating bag with a #2D or a #1M Tip. (May need to be done in batches)
  6. In a large bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon until well combined.
  7. Pour oil into a large pot and use a candy thermometer to bring it to 375ºF. Pipe churros into the oil.
  8. Fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove churros with tongs and place onto a paper towel lined sheet tray to dry and cool, about 2 minutes.
  10. Toss each churro in the cinnamon sugar topping to coat.
  11. Serve warm with a glass of milk! Enjoy!
