Vegan Cupcake Recipe

For the past week, I’ve been learning more and more about vegan-friendly food — including how to make vegan-friendly food! For me, being vegan is all about eating whole foods, being mindful of my overall health and wellness, and of course, having a “kind” diet. At the end of the day, though, it’s always a good idea to have a vegan cupcake recipe in your back pocket! ;-)

My sister and I whipped up these vegan cupcakes for our sister’s college graduation party, and they were so well-loved, they didn’t last very long!

Toppings

We experimented with toppings and found the following were delicious:

  • Sprinkles (Be sure to check the label for vegan friendly options!) and Sea Salt
  • Strawberries
  • Thin Mints (Which are — surprisingly — vegan!)
