Cook's Hideout: Vegan Banana-Chocolate Chip Cupcake

Vegan Banana-Chocolate Chip Cupcake

VeganMofo Day 8: This is going to be a quick post with a delicious Banana-chocolate chip cupcake recipe. I wanted to use up some of the very ripe bananas that I had on hand and found this recipe. Though I was only able to use only of the 1 of the said bananas, I was happy I tried the recipe. These cupcakes are moist with subtle banana flavor and the almond extract totally complements the flavors.

Banana - 1 large mashed, ½cup
All purpose flour - 1¼cup
Baking Soda - ¼tsp
Baking powder - 1tsp
Salt - ½tsp
Sugar - ¾cup
Rice milk or Soy milk - 2/3 cup
Canola Oil/ Vegetable oil - 1/3 cup
Vanilla extract - 1½tsp
Almond extract - ½tsp
Vegan Semisweet Chocolate Chips - ½cup

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with paper or silicon liners.
  • Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine oil, milk, both the extracts and mashed banana.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and combine until well mixed.
  • Finally add the chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Pour the batter into the muffin pan about ¾ of the way full. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F and bake for 24-26 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the middle of the cupcake comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing the cupcakes onto the wire rack to cool completely.

Frost with your favorite frosting or enjoy as is (which is what we did). Next time, I'll use half whole-wheat pastry flour to make these a little more healthy.
