Halloween cupcakes that use a banana as an oil substitute. I used 2 tbsp. of oil, so the cupcakes wouldn't stick to the paper liners. The bonus is you have a healthier treat to celebrate Halloween.

Step 1: This Is What You'll Need
1 box of cake mix
1 measuring cup of water
1 canister of icing
Step 2: Mix All Ingredients Together
- Mash banana (used to replace majority of oil)
- 2 teaspoons of oil
- 1 cup of water
- 3 eggs
- cake mix
Step 3: Line Cupcake Trays With Liners
We chose Halloween themed liners!
Step 4: Fill Cupcake Liners 3/4 With Mix
Step 5: Baked Cupcakes
Bake cupcakes for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. We used a convection oven, and these were mini sized, so it was only 15 minutes.
Step 6: Time to Decorate!
I had a very willing 5 year-old help complete the finishing touches on the cupcakes. We used icing, added festive peeps and candy corn to the final product!
You'll love them!
