How to Make Vegan Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes

Learn how to make vegan chocolate ganache cupcakes in just a few simple steps:

Preheat

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners. 

Sift

Grab a large mixing bowl and sift together the dry ingredients: gluten free oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. 

Heat

Heat water and non-dairy milk in a microwave-safe bowl until just warm. 

Whisk

Add all wet ingredients into a medium mixing bowl: water, non-dairy milk, coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk it all together until well mixed.

Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredient bowl and whisk until no flour patches remain. You’ve just made your vegan chocolate cupcake batter!

Pour

Pour your vegan chocolate cupcake batter into the muffin pan you prepared earlier. I like filling mine all the way up to the top for larger cupcakes with big, round tops. 

Bake & Cool

Bake cupcakes for about 18 minutes, then place the muffin pan on a cooling rack to cool for about 20 minutes. Now, gently lift cupcakes out of pan to finish cooling.

Dip

Make the vegan chocolate ganache. Then, dip each cupcake into the vegan ganache. Enjoy the best vegan chocolate ganache cupcakes ever!

Ingredients

Scale

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups gluten free oat flour – if using homemade oat flour, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*
  • 2/3 cup raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ganache Topping


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add water and milk to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 10-second increments until just warm. This will prevent the melted coconut oil from solidifying once mixed with these liquids.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients: water, milk, coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain.
  5. Pour batter evenly into prepared muffin pan—filling each cup about 3/4 of the way for smaller cupcakes, almost to the top for larger cupcakes with big, round tops. Bake for 16-20 minutes. Mine took 18 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick—it should come out with a few dry bits of cake on it, but no liquidy batter.
  6. Place cupcake pan on a cooling rack to cool for 20 minutes. Transfer cupcakes directly onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. Lay a large sheet of wax paper or parchment on an even surface. Make this Vegan Chocolate Ganache. Dip one cupcake top into the ganache, twisting the cupcake as needed to coat the top completely. Scrape off excess as needed and flip cupcake right side up, being careful not to let ganache drip down the sides of the cupcake. Place onto the prepared work surface and repeat for all cupcakes. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Notes

A Note on Homemade Oat Flour: *If using homemade oat flour, make sure to blend the flour until very fine and sift the flour to remove coarse bits of oats that could create less than ideal results. Store until needed, then measure the amount required for the recipe.

Storing Instructions: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Okay to keep at room temperature for up to 3 days, in a cool, dark environment.

Freezing Instructions: Store frosted cupcakes in an airtight, freezer-friendly container for up to 1 month. Allow to thaw at room temperature for 15-40 minutes before enjoying.

  1. We are going to bake some treats this weekend and these cupcakes are on our list! They look amazing!

  2. Hi. Looks so delicious. Can I use grape seed oil or something other than coconut and a different sugar? I don’t digest coconut very well. Amy suggestions for substitutes would be much appreciated. Or if it’s a no go, that will help, too. Thank you! Have a beautiful day.

    1. Hi Jennifer! I haven’t tried it myself, but I’ve had other readers use grape seed and avocado oil in some of my other recipes before. As for the sugar sub, you could try organic brown sugar. Some readers have used date sugar as well. Hope this helps!

  3. My youngest is gluten-free and loves chocolate. I know he’d love these, they look so moist and chocolatey!

  4. Oh my, these are the perfect cupcakes. They sound and look so delicious, it would be hard to stop at just one!
