Healthy Chocolate Whoopie Pies
These Healthy Chocolate Whoopie Pies are so soft, light, and fluffy — a hybrid between cake and cookie — you’d never ever know they’re sugar free, high protein, gluten free, and dairy free too!
Apparently whoopie pies are a classic lunchbox staple but I never got A SINGLE ONE in my lunchbox for the entirety of my long and dreadful, whoopie pie-less childhood.
THANKS A LOT, MOM.
Just kidding 😉
I should really be thanking her for not providing me with even more sugar than I was already consuming. God, my eating habits when I was younger were deplorable.
ANYWAYS. ONTO THE WHOOPIE PIES.
These Healthy Chocolate Whoopie Pies aren’t your typical whoopies. These are made without the white flour, white sugar, butter, and excess oil.
Instead, these are made with low carb coconut flour, all natural erythritol and stevia, and just a little bit of coconut oil.
And when a big scoop of Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting is sandwiched between two of these chocolatey whoopies, you can bet your tastebuds are about to dance their way to heaven.
- 56g (½ cup) Coconut Flour
- 48g (¼ cup) Granulated Erythritol
- 20g (¼ cup) Unsweetened Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder
- ¾ tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
- ⅛ tsp Salt
- 56g (¼ cup) Coconut Oil (melted)
- ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (room temp)
- 4 large Eggs (room temp)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, add the coconut flour, erythritol, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, almond milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and stevia extract.
Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients. Whisk until the batter is completely even.
Use a cookie scoop to portion 12 scoops onto the prepared pans. Bake for ~9 minutes, or until the surface springs back when tapped. Let cool completely.
Frost half of the whoopies with your frosting of choice (I used Cream Cheese Frosting!), then sandwich the remaining whoopies on top. Serve and enjoy!

They look that good… because they ARE that good. Enjoy 🙂
