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.
I added crushed mint Oreos to the buttercream topping which gave it a slightly crunchy texture.
These vegan mint Oreo cupcakes didn’t stay around long, although I did make sure there were a couple left for the next morning, my favourite time to eat cake is in the morning with a cup of tea. Not very healthy but definitely delicious 😉
I have also made a video tutorial which I will share at the bottom of the page, here is the printable recipe..
