Easy, delicious vegan sugar-free chocolate cupcakes


125 ml vegetable oil
180 ml water
235 g Nature’s Charm Sugar Free Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
150 g plain all-purpose flour
50 g cocoa powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons of dry roasted flaked almonds (for decorating)

Sugar Free Chocolate Buttercream 
200 g vegan butter or margarine 
85 g Nature’s Charm Sugar Free Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
Pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F and line a 12 holed cupcake tin with cupcake papers.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together oil, water, Nature’s Charm Sugar Free Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk, vinegar and vanilla.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, sift together all your dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle and pour in the liquid ingredients. Mix together gently with a whisk until just combined.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, divide the batter equally between the cupcake tins, filling each ¾ of the way to the top.
  5. Bake on the top rack of your oven for 15 to 18 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean with almost no cake crumbs.
  6. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 mins before turning onto a cooling rack.

How To Make Buttercream Filling 

  1. Place room temperature butter in a large mixing bowl and using a hand mixer, beat on a low speed until completely smooth and lump free. Add Nature’s Charm Sugar Free Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk and beat until combined. 
  2. Add sifted cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt, and beat until combined.
  3. Add buttercream to a piping bag with your favourite nozzle and pipe buttercream onto the top of your cupcakes. Crumble your almond flakes into small pieces and sprinkle onto the tops of your cupcakes. Serve!
