Vegan Vanilla and Agave Nectar Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting {Naturally Sweetened}


Continuing with our Halloween Styled Cupcake Blog Party (the other cupcakes are here), here are some yummy and healthy (yes, we give you permission to consider these healthy) Vanilla and Agave Nectar Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. 


Sweetened with agave nectar, these cupcakes contain no extra added refined sugar (the frosting however is not so healthy hehe). These cupcakes are so tasty, we have made them several times and they just keep getting higher and higher up on our favorite cupcake list. Soon they will be the most popular cupcakes in our eyes *swoon*.
