Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Filling

Please head over to my new blog at TheUrbanHousewife.com, where you'll find this post & more!

It all started with a sweets swap & a few attendees with a gluten allergy. As vegans, we all know what it's like to be the one left without options, so I decided to try to remedy that for the gluten free folks & try my hand at baking for them. It was my first time baking gluten free & luckily, it turned out! Moist, cakey pumpkin cookies were produced & in the end I decided they were best suited for whoopie pies. There's a lack of assembly photos, but regardless of that I wanted to post these for Kittee because she rules at life! While I used a mix of White Chocolate Chip & Dark Chocolate Chips, you can use whatever you have on hand. These would also be great with some chopped nuts!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies
2 1/2 cups Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten-Free Baking Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Allspice
A pinch of Salt

1/2 cup Earth Balance, melted
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 1/4 cups Pumpkin Puree, canned or fresh
1 Tbsp Ener-G Egg Replacer mixed with 2 Tbsp Water
1 tsp Vanilla extract

2/3 cup Chocolate Chips (I used 1/3 cup white, 1/3 cup dark)
Optional: 1/4 cup Chopped Nuts of your choice

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees & prepare a sheet pan with a Silpat, parchment, or non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.

In a large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.

Add the dry mixture to the wet, being careful not to overmix.

Fold in the chocolate chips & (optional) nuts.

On your prepared sheet pan make even scoops of your dough, leaving space for spreading. The dough will be soft & slightly tacky, so a small disher / scoop works well for this.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.

Allow to cool completely before assembly.

Cream Cheese Filling
1/4 cup Earth Balance, softened
1/4 cup Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, softened
2 cups Confectioners Sugar, sifted
1 tsp Vanilla extract

Beat together Earth Balance & Tofutti cream cheese until combined.

In small batches, add in the confectioners sugar until everything is smooth.

Beat in vanilla extract.

Take your cooled pumpkin cakes & pipe in or smooth on a large dollop of cream cheese filling, add another cake on top. Voilà, Whoopie Pies!

This recipe yields 12 to 16 whoopie pies, depending on your scoop size.

kittee said...

If anyone ever makes these cookies, you owe me royalties. They are MINE.


VeggieGirl said...

As a "gluten-freer," I'm ALLLLL over those whoopie pies!! :-)

sweetpotato said...

I am loving these. Mmmmmm!

Lovliebutterfly said...

Cream cheese filling sounds awesome!

Ricki said...

Everything about these sounds fabulous! I cannot believe I've never tasted a whoopie pie--how could I have missed something this good??

River said...

Too yummy! "Whoopie pies", that has to be the most fun food name on Earth!

aTxVegn said...

Yay for gluten free treats! These are perfect for the holidays. Thanks a million for the recipe!

Animal-Friendly said...

This is perfect! I just found out I have to avoid gluten and I think I have everything on hand for this recipe...yay!

These look AWESOME. Great idea to turn the pumpkin cookies into whoopie pies - wish I'd thought of that when I made my last batch of pumpkin cookies!

Vegetation said...

Yum yum and yum!

Marijke said...

I have to try this for my mum! But first I have to find an alternative to your wonder-flour...

Lisa (Show Me Vegan) said...

I can almost taste these! Yum.

Gina said...

Mmm...those sounds good!! I don't have to eat gluten free, but I try as much as possible by choice (it keeps my skin clear).

allularpunk said...

ohhhhh man! these look totally awesome!

Melody Polakow said...

Wow! Those look great. I really need to try my hand at vegan baking..

Cool we share the same bday!

Jessie said...

Those look amazing! I wish I could find some vegan white chocolate chips where I live.

Alisa said...

Those look so yummy!

jessy said...

these look wonderful! i have never made any gluten-free goodies before, i've been kind of afraid that i would fail horribly at them. but i think i'm going to be brave and try out these cookies. i just need some gluten free flour & xanthan gum and i'll be all set.

thanks for making gluten-free less intimidating! and super tasty look'n, too! :D

Ok, I have such a diry mind...whoopie pies? It sounds so kinky - but in a good way, you know? Or maybe I'm just a freak who needs to shut up and eat one?

Bianca said...

I never realized what whoopie pies were until I got Papa Tofu. And even though I'm sure I ate a few cream-filled cookie sammiches in my pregan days, I don't think I appreciated them as much as I do now since I know they're called whoopie pies. That's the best name ever.

Veg-a-Nut said...

Whoopie pies! I have not had those since I was a kid. Awe the memories.

Vegan_Noodle said...

Way to rock the gluten free baking, girl!! I haven't ventured much into GF baking... but maybe I should!

DJ said...

Yup, I new there was a reason you topped my 'Vegan Bakers who don't only make granola bars and dry cake' list!

jodye said...

Oh man, I'm gonna have to make these now. Ahh they look SOOO GOOD!

Anonymous said...

I can't believe I've never tried a whoopie pie. With a name like that, I'm all over it! Your pumpkin version sounds delish!

quarrygirl said...

god those look so good. i look forward to each new taste adventure that you post.

i have never actually eaten gluten-free, myself...but you give me a feeling that there is hope. that food looks AWESOME.

Penny said...

Wow, these look fantastic. Great seeing you at Lula's!

Alice (in Veganland) said...

The GF folks got very lucky!

miss v said...

perfect work treats. nice!

Hannah said...

These sound amazing! And I could definitely use a few more tried-and-true gluten free recipes as well, so I'm definitely saving this one.

Sal said...

YUM they sound amazing! white chocolate chips ...mmmmm!

Cakespy said...

Holy crap these sound good. I think that vegan whoopie pies taste even better than their dairy counterpart. These look so moist and perfect. Wish I had one right now.

Bethany said...

they look really yummy.

I haven't had a whoopie pie in years. My friends growing up never had them so I thought that it was my mom just making stuff up again, but I'm not alone, they do exist for other people :)

Vegyogini said...

I'm definitely going to make these for my gluten-free mom!

"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?"

I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!

His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.

Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
