Vegan Choco Banana Cupcakes

To kick start our Veganuary month we wanted to share our delicious cupcake recipe. They are quick, easy to prepare, look and taste great. Not all baking recipes need to be complicated and our guests this winter in Austria loved returning to MoaAlm Mountain Retreat after a day snowshoe hiking to be welcomed by these sweet treats!

Vegan Choco Banana Cupcakes



3 ripe bananas 

225g brown sugar

250g spelt flour

100g cacao powder

12O ml rapeseed oil

1 tsp of baking soda

1 tsp of baking powder

1 tsp vanilla paste

200ml almond milk

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Buttercream Frosting:

1 cup vegan butter

2.5 cups icing sugar

⅔ cup cocoa powder

¼ cup dairy free dark chocolate

2 tsp of vanilla extract

¼ cup almond milk

Dried banana chips for decoration



Prepare cup cake tin. Mash the bananas and mix well with all wet ingredients. In another bowl mix all dry ingredients and slowly fold in your wet mixture. Pour into cupcake moulds and bake in oven for 15-20 mins or until a knife comes out clean. 


Whilst cakes are baking, soften your vegan butter then fold in cocoa powder, icing sugar until you have made a smooth paste. Melt the chocolate and add to paste along with vanilla extract and almond milk. You should have a smooth, slightly firm consistency. If too runny, add more icing sugar, if too stiff, and more milk. 

Remove the cakes from the oven and leave aside to allow cooling. 

Pour icing into piping bag. Working in a circular motion, pipe the icing onto each cupcake. Add a banana chip for decoration.
