Whole Wheat Cupcakes With Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe

Updated on May 3, 2012
Cast your vote for Whole Wheat Cupcakes

I’m a big fan of homemade sweets mainly because I can control what goes into them and substitute healthier ingredient if I want. Normally when it comes to cakes, pie, cookies and other desserts I believe you don’t skimp on the ingredients. The more decadent the better, but I find using whole wheat flour instead if all-purpose flour adds to the texture and flavor of most desserts. These originally were going to be baked donuts, but I didn’t have a donut tin; I used a regular muffin tin and I got these cupcakes instead. The frosting was something I came up with because I love peanut butter and chocolate together. This recipe can make 1 dozen cupcakes.



1 cup whole wheat flour

½ white sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons milk

2 eggs

3 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 teaspoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


2/3 cup chocolate chips

1 tablespoon peanut butter

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon milk



1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees f.

2. Mix flour, sugar, salt, powder together.

3. in a separate bowl whisk together milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla and oil.

4. Add dry ingredients to wet in 3rds mix well.

5. Fill a greased muffin tin, or using cupcake foils, half way.

6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

7. Let cool while you make frosting.


1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and vanilla.

2. Microwave, on high, for 1 minute.

3. Remove from microwave and add milk.

4. Whisk until blended and smooth.

5. Spread frosting on cupcakes.
