Chocolate Cupcakes – Gluten Free Vegan Dairy Free

  • Author: Morgan | Just What We Eat
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 20 min
  • Total Time: 30 min
  • Yield: 12 cupcakes 1x



Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 23 tsp vanilla extract 


  • I personally love “Dollop” brand frosting but any gluten free and vegan frosting will work


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Sift dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together. 
  3. Add wet ingredients to the bowl and whisk until combined. 
  4. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners. 
  5. Use a medium sized cookie scoop to fill the muffin liner 3/4 of the way full. 
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  7. Once completely cooled, frost with your favorite gluten free and vegan frosting.


  • You can also make this recipe in a cake pan.  Cook time will need to be increased depending on the size of the pan used.  For two 6″ rounds the cook time is 30-35 minutes.
