Vegan Cupcakes 2-ways


Ingredients – Peanut Butter Cupcakes:

  • 1¼ Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cup plus ⅓ Cup Cane Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 8 oz. Apple 
  • 90 g Peanut Butter Chips
  • ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

Ingredients – Strawberry Cupcakes:

  • 1¼ Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cup plus ⅓ Cup Cane Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 5 oz. Apple 
  • 3 oz. Strawberries
  • ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

Ingredients – Frosting:

  • 1 Cup Vegetable Shortening 
  • 1½ Cups Cane Sugar, powdered
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Water, as needed
  • ½ teaspoon Butter Extract
  • Sprinkles, for decoration

Directions: 

Preheat your oven for 350F. In a big bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Then pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until the batter just comes together, don’t over mix it or your cupcakes will be sad cakes. Pour into a silicone mold and evenly divide batters. Bake 18-20 minutes until the tops are slightly golden.

To make the frosting, mix all the ingredients together with a hand mixer. Wait until the cupcakes are cooled completely before frosting. Use a piping bag, a butter knife or just a plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner to frost your cakes. Top with sprinkles for decoration.
