These are the best cupcakes I've ever had!! I've made them a couple times and will be making them again soon. They do taste like banana bread with a delicious peanut buttery frosting. SO moist and no one could even tell that they were vegan. I used almond milk.

Making these for they second time, they are just amazing!! Really sweet though, but hey some of us like that! Really moist and noone knows they are vegan if you dont tell them. I double the frosting as suggested and use my frosting pip (or zip-lock) and they look beautiful.

I have made this recipe (cake part only) a number of times. I use rice milk or milk, almost black bananas and leave out the almond extract. They are so soft, light, and quite tasty! I love how fast the batter comes together, too. I heavily sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar before baking. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

These are fab! On a cupcake baking frenzy today and these are one of my faves. Even though I messed up and grabbed arrowroot powder instead of baking powder, they still worked out well - love the banana cake part, very moist but not heavy with oil as some can be. If you're not an icing lover, than I agree, you'd want to apply a light coating. In this case I was piping the icing on and just barely got 10 iced, so I could have used a little more. All worked out well and I think they'll be a hit. One last note...I used spelt flour to have something for someone with a wheat allergy - worked really well. Thanks for posting this DS!

I really like these cupcakes. The frosting is a bit much for me so I definitely agree that it can be halved. I took these to a party and everyone thought they were very unique and couldn't believe they were vegan.
