skinnymixer's Churros Crumb
We ate Churros all over Mexico, and one of my most beautiful memories of our travels was a spanish-only speaking lady offering me half of her Churros to try at a very regional Cantina. It was amazing! Unfortunately, I couldn’t justify putting a traditional Churros recipe in the book, but this substitute crumb captures the flavour and texture of a freshly fried Churros in regional Mexico.
- 200 g raw macadamia nuts
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar or sugar of choice, brown would be my next choice
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 2 pinches of vanilla bean powder
- 1 pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 160°C or 270°F and put all of your ingredients into a roasting dish, combining well with a spoon.
Roast nuts for 8-10 min or until just golden brown, you dont want them to start to burn.
Allow nuts to cool compeletely before putting in your mixer bowl and chopping for 1-2 sec/speed 6/MC on. If you want a 'chunkier' consistency, use speed 5.
Store in an airtight container in the cupboard or fridge.
This recipe also features in 'A Little Taste of Mexico', which includes nut-free, LCHF and mixed nuts variations.
Use your sharp blade for this recipe.
At step 3 add on extra chopping time until you get your desired crumb consistency.
