🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 25 minutes


For the Oreo Cupcakes:

1 and 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour (188g)

1/2 cup Cocoa Powder (42g) Unsweetened

1 cup Light Brown Sugar (200g)

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Salt

1 cup Soy Milk (240ml) or other non-dairy milk

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/3 cup Canola Oil (80ml) or Vegetable Oil

1 Tbsp Distilled White Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Flax Egg 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp hot water

12 Oreo Cookies

For the Frosting:

3 cups Powdered Sugar (360g)

3 Tbsp Vegan Butter (45g)

2 Tbsp Soy Milk or other non-dairy milk

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

For Decorating:

10 Oreos


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and then add the sugar, baking soda and salt.

3Prepare your flax egg by mixing 1 Tbsp Flaxseed meal with 3 Tbsp Hot Water and allowing to sit for a minute to become gloopy.

4Add the soy milk, vanilla extract, oil, vinegar and flax egg to the mixing bowl and mix in. Don't overmix the batter.

5Line a cupcake tray with cupcake liners and place a whole oreo cookie into each liner.

6Then divide the batter evenly between the cupcake liners, pouring the batter directly on top of the oreo cookie.

7Place into the oven and bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

8When the cupcakes are baked, transfer them to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before frosting.

9Prepare your frosting by adding the powdered sugar, vegan butter, soy milk and vanilla extract to an electric mixing bowl and starting at slow speed gradually increase the speed until the frosting is thick and smooth. If your frosting is too thick, add a tiny bit more soy milk. If it's too thin, add some more powdered sugar.

10When the cupcakes are cool, pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes.

11Crush 4 oreos and spoon the crumbs over the top of the frosting. Then break another 6 oreos into halves and prop them on top of your cupcakes to serve.
