November 19, 2021

Going to Costco with my mom is my absolute favorite thing to do. Sometimes we go just for fun to get nothing and then leave with everything.. You bet that included their glorious, crispy fried churros coated with tons of cinnamon sugar.

If you love the Costco’s churros as much as I do, you’re going to love this lighter healthier version turned into donut holes!

These Healthy Churro Donut Holes are SO fluffy, tender and perfectly sweet. This 30-minute, 10-ingredient recipe starts with cassava and almond flour, which creates a slightly nutty base.

How to Make Healthy Churro Donut Holes (Grain-Free!)

  • Author: Brittney
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes to create a “buttermilk”.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Add the maple syrup and the “buttermilk” to the bowl with the flour mixture and stir to form a batter.
  4. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into your hands and roll into balls and then place into a greased donut hole baking pan (or you can use a parchment lined baking sheet if you don’t have one). Repeat until all batter is gone and then bake in the oven for 13-14 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Next, make the cinnamon sugar coating by whisking together the coconut sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  6. Spray the donut holes all the way around with the spray oil and then roll them in the cinnamon sugar coating. Serve with melted chocolate if desired. Best enjoyed the same day, store leftovers in an airtight container on your counter for up to 2 days.
