Vegan Carob Cupcakes


  • 3 cup unbleached powder
  • 6 tbsp carob powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup extra light olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cup sucanat


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare 24 muffin tins with paper liners. For Cake spray 9" x 13" pan with PAM and flour lightly.
  • Mix in bowl: flour, carob powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Mix separately: pineapple juice, olive oil, vanilla, and Sucanat.
  • Add liquids to dry ingredients and mix until moist and most lumps have disappeared. Fill each cup about ¾ full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Bake 35-40 minutes if using a cake pan.


Don't over mix. The less you stir, the lighter and fluffier the muffin will be. Stirring activates the gluten.
