These were my first attempt as cheesecake cupcakes and although ugly… (they fell on the way to work because I didn’t chill them enough and of course I didn’t take the picture before I left!) they tasted so good! Next time will be prettier I promise!

Vegan Cheesecake Cupcakes

10 Graham Crackers

½ C oil of choice

(I used Olive Oil b/c I was out of Coconut)

½ C plus 2 T Agave Nectar divided

12 Oz Vegan Cream Cheese (I use Tofutti)

½ C unbleached sugar

1tsp Vanilla

¼ C vanilla soy yogurt

Line muffin pan with cupcake liners and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For Crust:

Smash crackers and mix with 2 T Agave and oil. Spoon into liners and press down firmly.

Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes.

Cheesecake:

Blend all remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Poor into liners until ¾ way full. Decrease oven temp to 325 and bake for about 30 minutes and then immediately move refrigerator until hardened.

This recipe was the biggest success out of all other recipes I’ve brought in for my non vegan friends. So much a success people are asking me to make them for parties and offering to pay me! I was shocked and really excited!

Chocolate Covered Banana Cupcakes

1/2 C puréed banana (about 2 ripe bananas)
1 1/4 C whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (do not omit)
3/4 C sugar or natural sweetener
1/3 C canola oil (for fat free version unsweetened apple sauce)
2/3 C almond milk (I used vanilla almond milk so I omitted the vanilla extract)

Add ins:
1/4 C Chocolate chips
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 and prep cupcake pans.
Purée bananas in blender or magic bullet. You can also melt in microwave.
In separate bowls mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients. Pour wet into dry until just combine. Do not overmix or cupcakes will be tough!
Fill liners about 2/3 of the way full and smooth tops. Bake for 20-22 minutes let cool and top with chocolate frosting. I put mine in the fridge for frosting to harden a little. You can also top with dry banana chip or white chocolate shavings to make extra fancy 🙂
