Let’s dive into the world of baking magic and explore the secrets behind these delectable cupcakes. Whether you’re planning a delightful party or simply satisfying your sweet tooth, this recipe is a winner. Get your apron on and let’s create a dessert masterpiece together!

I’m not going to pretend that these Choc Banana Cupcakes with Frosting are healthy just because they are vegan.  

Sometimes, just because a food is labeled vegan, all-natural or gluten-free doesn’t mean it is healthy!

Yes, these cupcakes are made without eggs, butter or cream, but they contain WAY more sugar then I like to bake with.  But, they are birthday cupcakes and in my book, all bets are off on birthdays!

On a healthy note, these cupcakes are made with whole wheat flour instead of white flour, and banana in place of added fat such as butter.  Plus,  they are void of chemicals and preservatives found in most store-bought cupcakes.

Vegan Choco Banana Cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray a mini-cupcake tin with cooking spray or line with liners and set aside.
  • Combine banana and soy milk together using a blender or food processor. (I used my vitamix)
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl.
  • In a different bowl, mix together oil, soy milk/banana mixture, vanilla extract and almond extract.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir in mini chocolate chips. Don’t over mix!
  • Pour batter 2/3 full into cupcake tin.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire racks and top with peanut butter frosting.

Vegan Peanut Butter Frosting

  • Using a hand-held mixer
  • combine all ingredients (natural creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar) until fluffy
  • adding soy milk or almond milk slowly until desired consistency. (I started with 4 tablespoons and added extra as needed)
  • Taste and add extra powdered sugar if needed
  • I added the peanut butter frosting in the freezer by using a plastic sandwich bag one day before (or at least 4 hours). Just fill, seal, cut the corner off one of the ends and frost away!
  • Store in an air-tight container to maintain freshness!
  • Add the frosting to the choco banana cupcakes, top with a few mini-chips for fun and enjoy 🙂
