Ben & Jerry’s Vegan Coconut Seven Layer Bar Cupcakes

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Layer:
6 whole graham crackers
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Cupcake:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 pint Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy Coconut Seven-Layer Bar

Frosting:
1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) vegan buttery sticks, room temperature
1/2 cup coconut cream, chilled for at least 4 hours (This is an unsweetened, dairy-free coconut product usually found in cans in the international aisle of most grocery stores)
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup toasted coconut, optional

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Distribute cupcake papers in a muffin tin and spray each one lightly with cooking spray.

Put graham crackers in a food processor and pulse until crushed. Add the coconut oil and pulse until combined. Spoon a tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake paper. Compress the graham cracker layers down firmly, set aside.

To make the cupcake batter, combine the dry ingredients and stir to mix. Add the melted Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy and coconut oil, stir until incorporated.

Scoop ¼ cup of the batter into each cupcake paper. Bake the cupcakes for 20-22 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

To prepare the frosting, mix the vegan buttery sticks and the chilled coconut cream with a mixer until combined and lighter in consistency. Add the powdered sugar and mix until fluffy. Spread or pipe the frosting onto each cupcake. Top with toasted coconut if desired.
