Who doesn't love churros? If we had our way, we would have this warm, fried-dough pastry for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! But authentic Mexican churros are generously coated with refined sugar in addition to delicious, granulated cinnamon... Mmm, cinnamon... So, what's a churro-lover to do when they crave this crispy on the outside, soft on the inside dessert? Why, substitute sugar for an all-natural, sugar-free, calorie-free alternative, of course! Here comes Sweetly Stevia to the rescue with a healthy recipe that's sure to get your taste buds singing louder than a mariachi band!
