Vegan S’mores Cucpakes with Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting

By Amy DiPaola
makes 16 cupcakes


1 cup water or almond milk
1/4 cup vegan plain or vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup mashed banana
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
3 Tbs earth balance buttery spread, softened
1 Tbs vanilla

1 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 cup coconut sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup graham crackers, crushed, plus 1/3 cup for topping, finely ground

8-10 vegan marshmallows, melted (I used Dandies brand)

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.

2. In large bowl whisk together all wet ingredients. In a smaller bowl, mix together all dry ingredients (ONLY 1 cup of the crushed graham cracker). Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk together until just combined.

3. Pour batter into each cupcake liner until about 1/3 of the way full. Melt your marshmallows until VERY VERY MELTED!! This might take a few minutes in the microwave (watch closely though). Once your marshmallows are very melted put a dollop of marshmallow in each cupcake tin on top of the batter. Cover each marshmallow with batter until about 3/4 full. Sprinkle liberally with the 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs.

4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and cool for 5 minutes before placing each cupcake on a cooling rack. Cool completely before icing. These keep well in the fridge for about 5 days.


Now this is the hard part…debate whether to have on right out of the oven just because you can’t resist and you just have to try one…or wait until fully cooled and iced. Decisions, decisions. If it helps, I had one right out of the oven…and another iced. I think Colin ate about 5 or 6.

Now for the icing recipe. So typically, I am not one for powdered sugar. I really don’t like to use it and rarely ever do.

But whatever, because these cupcakes go from AMAZING, to OMG GOTTA HAVE INCREDIBLY AMAZING with this icing! Can’t fight with that.
