Prep Time: 15 Min

Total Time: 35 Min

Servings: 20 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal, finely ground
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces, finely ground
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups oil
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon sugar


  1. Bring water, butter and salt to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in flour. Reduce heat to low; cook 1 min. or until mixture forms a ball, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Remove from heat; stir in cereal and pecans until well blended. Place in medium bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with electric mixer on medium speed after each addition until well blended.
  2. Heat oil in medium skillet to 350ºF. Spoon cereal mixture into heavy-weight pastry bag fitted with large star tip. (Or spoon into a cake decorator's tube fitted with star tip.) Carefully squeeze three or four 3-inch-long strips of dough into hot oil. Cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown on both sides, turning after 1 min. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough.
  3. Roll in cinnamon sugar while still hot. Serve warm.

Tips and Suggestions

Special Extra: Dip warm churros in melted semi-sweet baking chocolate. Or drizzle churros with the melted chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

Keeping It Safe: To avoid hot splatters, be sure to remove any air bubbles from dough in pastry bag or decorator's tube before squeezing dough into hot oil.

Family Fun: Prepare your favorite hot chocolate recipe to dunk the churros in.

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar: Mix 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon. Store at room temperature.
