Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes W/ Peanut Butter Icing!

These cupcakes are only about 90% organic but I'm putting them on my blog because they are vegan and super yummy. These also aren't on the healthy side but it's about time I post something for those craving something chocolate flavored! :)

What you'll need:
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 Cup soy yogurt
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2/3 Almond Milk
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
    1 Cup Flour
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
With an electric blender beat oil, sugar, and yogurt on low speed until smooth. Then blend in vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Then add almond milk, cocoa powder, and flour and beat on low speed. Once it's mixed together mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Put 12 cupcake liners in the pan and give a little spray with cooking oil. Fill each cup about 1/2 full. Cook at 350 degrees for 20-23 minutes.
While your cupcakes are cooling (allow about 20 minutes) make your yummy icing!
Mix wet ingredients with an electric blender. Then slowly add in powdered sugar. You can add more almond milk or powdered sugar to make the texture of your choice!
Spread on cupcakes and enjoy!
-For the peanut butter I use 1/2 crunchy and 1/2 smooth to give it some crunch but keep it smooth!
-If you're wanting more flavor, add mint extract to the batter instead of vanilla extract.
