174. Vegan Raspberry Lemonade Cuppycakes

Apparently Border’s is not the only store I should not be allowed in without adult supervision.  I shouldn’t be allowed in Whole Foods either apparently.  I went in for barley and walked out with $51 worth of stuff including whole wheat pastry flour, whole wheat flour, and white flour from the bulk bins, a jar of Maranatha Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter, and assorted items needed to make some vegan cupcakes.  Making vegan cupcakes was exactly what I did when I got home.

Behold…Vegan Raspberry Lemonade Cupcakes (adapted from the Lemony Vanilla Cupcake and Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting recipes in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.)

    1. I do most of my grocery shopping at TJ’s. Whole Foods I only really go to for specific items. I would probably go more often if there were one closer than Hinsdale. Honestly though, I got quite a bit for my $51 and it’s “staple” type items that I won’t need to buy again for a while.

      3.5lbs of Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
      3.5lbs of Organic White Flour
      4lbs of Organic Whole Wheat Flour
      2lbs of Organic pearled barley
      Giant tub of Earth Balance
      Vegan Cream Cheese
      bag of arrowroot powder
      container of cornstarch
      organic powdered sugar
      Maranatha dark chocolate peanut butter spread
      some pre-made sushi for dinner
      and maybe something else I’m forgetting….

    1. Yeah, I really only go to Whole Foods for specific/ specialty items. It helps that the nearest Whole Foods is about 20 – 30 minutes away.

  1. Oh my god, those look good. Or maybe I’m just thirsty and raspberry lemonade sounds really good. I think you need to send a cupcake this way so that I can make a determination of which one it is.
