Vegan Banana & Blueberry Cupcakes


The holiday season is finally here and these Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes are just what we need to kick off a great family event! A banana cake with a hint of cinnamon, bursting with warm blueberries and topped with frosting!


Yum!


So why the vegan cupcakes? Because in todays day it is more common to find food allergies in baked goods like eggs, soy, peanuts, and dairy. There aren't many alternatives until now! Cupcakes and allergy-friendly… it’s my sort of thing!


Plus, vegan recipes are great to have on hand in case you don’t have any eggs or milk in the fridge! Vegan banana bread has seriously saved me a few times and

I just couldn’t help myself when these came hot out of the oven! I had to eat one…or two. Even without the frosting they make great muffins perfect for lunch boxes or picnics. But let’s be honest, adding frosting just makes every bite more delightful.

I topped my cupcakes with a little bit of sanding sugar sprinkles and some fresh berries. But if you use frozen blueberries in the recipe (which you totally can) then you can just use some sprinkles to add a little decoration. Now, time for the fun part baking!
