The lemon cupcakes can be baked up the day before, are easy to transport, and don’t need any refrigeration, so they’re a great option for outdoor gatherings.

I made the recipe for a spring picnic to celebrate a friend’s birthday a few weeks ago, and they went over really well with the human guests.

(Three sneaky puppies in attendance tried their best but were eventually thwarted from getting a cupcake.)

Chocolate Covered Katie Vegan Cupcake Recipe

Feel free to frost the cupcakes with your favorite homemade or store-bought white, vanilla, buttercream, or Vegan Cream Cheese frosting.

Or ice with melted Coconut Butter, powdered sugar glaze (1/2 cup powdered sugar mixed with 1 tbsp milk of choice), or Coconut Whipped Cream.

If you want keto lemon cupcakes:

Instead of the recipe below, use this recipe for Keto Muffins, and add 1 tsp lemon zest to the batter. Top with powdered monkfruit blend or sugar free frosting of choice.

If you want gluten free lemon cupcakes:

The recipe works with oat flour, and you can buy certified-gluten-free oat flour if you need to make sure the package you’re buying has been made in a separate facility from products containing gluten.

I haven’t tried the cupcakes yet with a gluten free flour blend but have had success with Bob’s cup-for-cup blend in other recipes, so feel free to experiment with that one.

Calories 104kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp oil, or applesauce or mashed banana for fat free
  • zest of one lemon (important)
  • 1 cup spelt, white, or oat flour (a keto option is mentioned above)
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar, unrefined if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a cupcake pan. Whisk first four ingredients and let sit at least ten minutes. You can stir together all remaining ingredients while you wait. Combine all ingredients to form a batter. Portion into the lined pan, only filling 2/3 of the way up because they’ll rise. Bake 17 minutes on the center rack. Let cool. These are even sweeter the next day, and the liners peel off easily if they sit a day as well.
