Matcha Churros with Coconut Caramel

Matcha vegan churros. Had a craving to satisfy, so I whipped out the matcha again ūüėä. By replacing butter with vegetable oil and removing the eggs, churro batter becomes much less flavorful, which makes it ideal for introducing delicate flavors such as matcha! While the exterior becomes a crispy golden brown, the interior remains a beautiful green. Instead of the traditional cinnamon sugar dusting, these were coated with a matcha sugar mixture. For dipping, I made 3 small batches (because I accidentally burned 2) of salted coconut caramel. #vegan #veganrecipes #plantbased #churros #veganchurros #matchachurros #coconutcaramel
