Note: To make eggless cupcakes replace the two eggs with 2 tbsp chia seeds + 6 tbsp water.

To make them vegan, also replace the butter in the icing and the cupcake batter with cashew butter, available online or make your ownm[external link] but add a pinch more salt if it contains no salt.

To make them gluten free, replace the all-purpose flour with oats flour or almond flour.

Weightwatchers can avoid the icing and the centre filling and for low-salt cupcakes, skip/reduce the salt, use unsalted butter and replace the peanut butter with unsalted cashew butter or unsalted peanut butter.
