Yesterday was my day off and I packed it full with things that I love!
I went to the grocery store (walking up and down the aisles looking at new foods/products/spices is so much fun!).
I went to a museum and looked at beautiful art.
I walked around in the sunshine, enjoying the warm weather.
I did my laundry (ok, not something I love to do, but I do love wearing clean clothes haha).
I made these Vegan Chocolate Sprinkle Cupcakes.
And if that wasn’t the perfect, relaxing day off, I don’t know what is!
What I love about these cupcakes is that they use pantry staples.
(if sprinkles aren’t a pantry staple for you, let me know and I’ll send you some!!)
Since they use pantry staples, you can whip together a batch easily… which means that you can eat Vegan Chocolate Sprinkle Cupcakes whenever you want!
Plus, people don’t realize they’re eating vegan cake! They are super chocolatey, super moist, and super tender. Basically, they are the perfect chocolate cupcake ever.
But don’t take my word for it – make a batch this weekend and let me know what you think!
Happy Fri-YAY, everyone,
