It may sound strange, but vegan cupcakes are quite delicious, especially when they are topped with fluffy vanilla almond frosting and a light drizzle of raspberry glaze. These cupcakes contain a number of substitutes that make them just as tasty as regular ones, only vegan. For example, vanilla almond milk takes the places of standard dairy milk, and extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar fill in for the eggs. Don’t forget the cocoa powder!

While the thought of flourless cupcakes may be a turn off, when you hear that they are made almost entirely of ground up chocolate and almonds, you may change your mind. These chocolate cupcakes also consist of eggs, grapeseed oil, agave nectar, Celtic sea salt and vanilla extract. Once they are baked, let them cool before topping them with homemade vegan chocolate icing. You can also toss on a whole almond or two for extra flavor, if you’d like.

The frosting is a homemade malted milk chocolate buttercream, complete with chocolate, malted milk powder, heavy cream and butter. Are you ready for irresistible cupcakes?

Peanut Butter M&M Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate and peanut are an excellent combination. This is why peanut butter M&Ms are so addictive, and why this particular recipe is so tasty. The chocolate cupcakes are good, but are nothing compared to the frosting. You can even make the cupcakes themselves from a boxed mix if you so choose. After all, the frosting is the showpiece. It is made from butter, crunchy peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and crushed peanut butter M&Ms. Tasty!

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

These vegan cupcakes are also gluten free, so you could argue that they are “healthy” – and use that as your justification for eating several of them in one sitting. However, they are also great for those with food allergies, as they use garbanzo-fava bean flour and potato starch, plus arrowroot, xanthan gum and agave nectar for sweetness. The frosting is also vegan and gluten free. It contains coconut flour, soy milk powder and several other ingredients.

Fresh Raspberries and Chocolate Cupcakes

Most people associate a vegan diet with vegetables and little else. However, many vegans can eat cupcakes and other treats, as long as the snacks are made without dairy and other animal byproducts. These vegan cupcakes are chocolate, and are topped with a freshly made vegan ganache. Once they’ve been baked, frosted and garnished with a fresh raspberry, you will find little difference between them and other non-vegan treats. Try one and see!

Coffee-Infused Chocolate Cupcakes

The best way to enhance everyday chocolate cupcakes and turn them into a richer, tastier treat is by infusing them with coffee. This recipe contains unsweetened cocoa powder, brewed coffee and vanilla extract (along with staples like flour, butter, sugar, salt, baking powder and eggs), nothing crazy or exotic. The combination of the coffee and the chocolate is what really matters though. Although you may want to frost your newly baked treats, this recipe provides an alternative option – powdered sugar and fresh fruit. Enjoy!

Sometimes you need a cupcake that is slightly different, but not too outrageous. These chocolate cupcakes (made the traditional way out of cocoa powder, sugar, buttermilk, flour and other items) are as “standard” as they come. The uniqueness lies in the frosting, which is a mixture of grapefruit (both zest and juice), cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and salt. Once these have been baked and frosted, top them with a bit of chocolate dipped candied grapefruit peel before serving.

Triple Chocolate Cupcakes with Pink & Chocolate Swirled Frosting

The title of this cupcake recipe is no lie – the “triple” chocolate consists of chocolate pudding, chocolate cake mix and chocolate chips. They also contain vegetable oil, sour cream, eggs, brewed coffee, water and vanilla extract. The frosting is combination of pink tinted vanilla buttercream and chocolate buttercream, both applied in different frosting bags at the same time so that the colors swirl together. The result is a series of tasty and pretty cupcakes that are very hard to resist.
