The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently put together a recipe for vegan-friendly peppermint cupcakes. For those who adhere to a vegan diet, it can be difficult to find festive recipes that are made without animal products. This delicious recipe provides a vegan-friendly way to enjoy classic holiday flavors.

To make the cupcake batter vegan-friendly, the recipe replaces eggs with flax eggs and cow's milk with almond milk. Oat flour and almond meal is also used instead of all-purpose flour to make the batter gluten-free as well. Once the chocolate cupcakes have been prepared, they can be topped with a generous helping of coconut whipped cream. The vegan-friendly frosting is infused with peppermint extract to give the cupcakes a festive mint flavor.

The recipe provides the perfect dessert option for a vegan-friendly holiday gathering.
