    I got this from Alicia Silverstone’s “the kind life” website. They have absolutely NO refined sugars and looking at the ingredient completely GUILTFREE. WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!! Chewy Gooey Vegan Chocolate Fudge Muffins What You Need cooking spray 1 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 tsp canola oil 12 cup raw turbinado sugar 2 tsp vanilla extract 34 cups white whole wheat flour this type of flour works best 13 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tsp baking powder 12 tsp baking soda 12 tsp salt 12 tsp ground cinnamon 12 cup vegan chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350. Spray 8 muffin cups on the muffin tin. Mix the applesauce 1 tsp canola oil and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry. this batter is deceiving! It will seem too thick and you may think it doesn’t have enough moisture in it but that is how it is supposed to be. Just make sure everything is incorporated and mixed well. Fill the 8 muffin cups and bake for 2025 minutes. Be careful not to overcook these! The muffins are done when they are barely firm to the touch on the top. Let them cool for 10 or so minutes before eating. These are yummiest when warmed so when you are going to have one reheat in the microwave for about 12 seconds for a perfect warm gooey brownie like muffin.

    CARROT CAKE! Mmmmm…. I never never never liked carrot cake before turning vegan then I tried the cupcake version from my local health food store they are delectable! Especially with their fresh made “cream cheese” frosting toasted walnuts. Now I have to make a trip there right away! My mouth is watering PS Vegan cupcakes are sooo much better! I wish more people even nonvegs knew how yummy food is without animal products.

  • Amie Nolan says:

    Vegan chocolate chip cupcake with strawberry frosting and chocolate drizzled over the top. Just like a chocolate cover strawberry in the summer…delish!

  • Julie W. says:

  • Aleksis says:

  • Ryel says:

    One of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever baked is a cookies cream cupcake. Newman’s O cookies baked into a chocolate cake topped with a cookies and cream buttercream frosting with crushed up cookies on top. So delicious!

  • Samantha says:

    I would have to say that the best vegan cupcake would either be..blueberry..because I love most blueberry cupcakes and muffins..or a very chocolatey cupcake..add some vegan chocolate chips..and a lil extra oil to make it a little more most..and those chocolate chips will melt into it….mmmmmmmmmm… my mouth is watering just thinking about it.. every girls favorite..double chocolate chip anything….

  • Shannan says:

    vanilla cupcakes with chocolatestrawberry frosting!

  • Brittany D. says:

    My sister used to make Pink Lemonade cupcakes for different occasions but they weren’t vegan. I am currently coming up with a recipe for Vegan Pink Lemonade cupcakes hopefully to be more delicious then the aforementioned nonvegan variety. They are sweet and tangy and are perfect for summer. I hope to debut them at a fundraiser for a friend of mine who will be participating in a 3day breast cancer walk.

  • Robin Cirul says:

    I love the combination of chocolate and orange so to me a delectable cupcake would be deep dark chocolate cake perhaps spiked with orange zest and espresso and orangeflavored icing.

  • Carrie Petee says:

    The flavor that comes to mind is a chocolate cupcake with a peatnut butter center. The frosting would be a light creamy mixture of vanilla and peanut butter on top. Never had it but dream of it!

  • Nancy says:

    Tricky one. So far I’d have to say Cookie Dough cupcakes. A cookie flavored cake a glob of cookie dough in the center and topped with frosting made with the cookie dough. Oh yeah decadence at it’s finest. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Erin Schmidt says:

    The most decadent cupcake I wish I was eating right now as I sit and type would be as follows Peanut butter and chocolate chip cake with real chips made from peanut butter and chocolate. The icing would be a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate ganache with cookie crumbles and peanut butter chips on top. All vegan of course!

  • Natalie says:

    A dark chocolate cupcake with “buttercream” under the chocolate. Or maybe a chocolate cupcake with caramel center and mocha frosting topped with chocolate covered espresso beans. That would sound heavenly.

  • Beth Collette says:

    How about… Vegan Strawberry Colada Cupcake with Coconut Buttercream Icing Sounds delicious right??

  • Tracy Goyak says:

    I think that a cinnamon roll flavored cupcake w vegan cream cheese frosting would be soooooo good. Hopefully I will get to try one someday!

  • Debbie Szemen says:

    The most decadent cupcake flavor I can dream up is without a doubt blueberry cake with a sugary almondvanilla flavored frosting!

  • Alicia says:

    It’s really hard to choose… but I work at a vegan bakery in Keyport NJ although I don’t do any actual baking nor did I come up with any of the flavours so am treated to all kinds of goodies. Gosh… I think I’m going to have to go with the FlufferNotter which is a peanut butter of course vegan marshmallow fluff cupcake with some of the fluff actually inside the cupcake as well as being part of the icing!! If I win this mug I’m going to give it to my bosses who are the owners of the bakery which is called Papa Ganache by the way. Alicia

  • Lisa Lawer says:

    Peanut Butter vegan cupcake made using a banana instead of eggs with a dab of vegan grape jelly made with agar instead of icky gelatin in the middle. The banana really does add to the Peanut Butter flavor

  • Sarah Fuhs says:

    Rocky Road Cupcakes made with Dandies topped with a rich velvety ganache over too cute mini veg marshmallows….mmmmmm!

  • Ashley Allen says:

    Coffee Cupcake because it goes well with just about anything that tastes sweet!

  • Annika says:

    There are so many flavours to choose from! For a second I was thinking I’d say my chocolate orange cupcakes I made couple of days ago but then I remembered I saw Chloe Coscarelli’s blog and her raspberry tiramisu cupcakes..I mean what can beat that?! I haven’t tried it yet but that has to be the most awesome combination ever It has the 3 flavours I love the most!

  • Sophie Backer says:

In a smaller bowl whisk together the oil soy or rice milk vanilla almond and mashed banana. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry dont over mix or youll get tough cupcakes. Small lumps are fine. 4Fill liners 23 full top the batter of each cupcake with 1 tsp of finely chopped chocolate and use a toothpick to gently stir them inches. 5Bake 2022 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Chocolate icing on top makes it even better if that’s posible. I love these!!!
