Sweet, creamy filling sandwiched between two chocolatey, cake-like cookies. Also known as heaven on Earth.
The whoopie pies from my childhood were most likely loaded with chemicals, and definitely loaded with fat, sugar, and preservatives. I think they came from gas stations?
The specifics of the environment are kind of hazy, but the sweet, creamy, amazing deliciousness of whoopie pie heaven is not. Not hazy at all.
So I created a healthy version!! Yay! This version is low in fat and sugar and packed with fiber and protein!
I had so much fun experimenting with this recipe and was so excited when it came out as a total success.
These scrumptious little treats were tested on multiple carnivores and received stellar reviews!! (I guess technically they are omnivores... but that's besides the point).
The point is, this recipe is a crowd-pleaser - vegans/non-vegans alike! You will love them.
Your meat-loving uncle will love them.
Your dog will love them. Jk. Don't feed these to your dog - chocolate is not good for dogs BUT if you do want to feed your dog something yummy, check out the my healthy dog food recipes section of my website!
