Recipe for Vegan Pumpkin Oreo Cupcakes

That’s right. Pumpkin AND Oreos! I found this recipe on Pinterest and immediately knew I had to veganize it. The original recipe is for donuts but I decided to make them as cupcakes. As you can only imagine, the results are delicious!

Ingredients:

For the donuts: 

1/4 c. vegan butter, softened (I used Earth Balance)
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. applesauce
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/3 c. soy vanilla yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. flour
1/4 c. chocolate cookie crumbs

For the topping: 

Vegan frosting*
1/2 c. chocolate cookie crumbs

*The originally recipe calls for CandiQuick, which isn’t vegan so I made my own frosting using this recipe.
