If you are looking for a vegan mint Oreo cupcake recipe then you’ve come to the right place! Mint Oreos are my favourite flavour, they remind me of Mint Aero’s which I used to love in my pre-vegan days. I don’t mind normal Oreo’s but they are a bit plain for my liking, I have made vegan Oreo cupcakes before though, pretty much in the same way but just leaving out the peppermint essence.
