VCTOTW Altered for lower cal: Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Submitted by: LEONALIONESS

Introduction

(Can't believe I neglected to say this!) Recipe is Isa's from VCTOTW. Entered for my own calorie tracking purposes back in the day. Apologies to Ms. Isa! I didn't create this fine recipe, I just like it.

Sweet, moist pumpkin cupcakes laced with dark chocolate chips with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. I use Nunaturals stevia baking blend and make 'em fat free with fruit puree rather than oil. The original, unaltered version can be found on theppk.com, I believe. Or in her cupcake book. :)

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 c. canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
    .25 c. Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk
    1.5 tbs. mashed underripe banana or more pumpkin
    6 tbs vegan chocolate chips
    .33 c. stevia baking blend
    1 tsp (good!) vanilla extract
    1.25 c. whole wheat PASTRY flour
    .5 tsp baking power
    .5 tsp baking soda
    .75 tsp ground cinnamon
    .25 tsp sea salt

    Cinnamon and/or powdered sugar for lightly dusting the tops.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix wet ingredients together. Sift in dry. Stir with fork until just blended, fold in chocolate chips. Don't use a handmixer or overmix, batter will get gummy.

Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full.
Bake 22-24 minutes, checking with a toothpick for doneness.

Let cool on a wire rack.
You can sprinkle them with a mix of powdered sugar and cinnamon or ice them with a cinnamon flavored vegan buttercream frosting. Or eat 'em naked. ;)

Makes 12 cupcakes.

    Thank Ms. Isa. I've adjusted the recipe to how I make them. As she'd say, they are fat free and "not as good". Haha. Buy the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World book for her unadulterated version. Or go to theppk.com. :D

  • I just made these yesterday but this is a recipe from the cookbook "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World". You should give credit to Isa Chandra Moskowitz :-) - 2/13/11
