Gluten & Dairy Free Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Believe it or not, but I made it all the way to my late 20’s before I had ever tried a Whoopie Pie. Hard to believe I know, but for some reason, these glorious sandwich cookie type creations never crossed my path. I loved them from the get go, so when I had to change my diet due to food intolerance's, I was more than ready to come up with a Gluten Free Dairy Free Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe.

Allergy Friendly Whoopie Pies


When I first started baking gluten-free and dairy-free desserts I found it really hard. Gluten is what binds the dough and helps it be light and airy, so without it... well...you basically get rocks.

That is, until you practice and make A LOT of mistakes and then finally figure out what it takes to make an allergy friendly treat work.

You Need A Little Whoopie In Your Life


Once I figured out what it takes to make gluten-free and dairy-free foods, I started having fun again in the kitchen. Making tasty, healthy, allergy friendly foods for my family was so much fun.

I know.. I know... You're thinking... are these healthy?


To be honest, probably not. There is A LOT of powdered sugar and vegan butter in these things. Yet, even with that, part of being 'happy in healthy' is knowing when it's OK to treat yourself.

I definitely wouldn't suggest eating these or making these every day, but when Fall comes around and you just want something festive to eat, these are a delicious, allergy friendly treat everyone will love.

Pulling It All Together


This recipe is a lot of fun to make. It takes a little bit of prep when it comes to soaking the cashews, but once you have that, it all comes together easily.

Soaking the cashews with the vanilla allows the nuts to soak up the vanilla flavoring. It allows the vanilla to stand out more and blend with the maple syrup flavor nicely.

The batter for the cookies alone is amazing. If you weren't able to make the filling, you could easily make a glaze or even just shake some powdered sugar on these sandwich goodies and they would be fine on their own.

But, I do suggest making the filling..


it's what makes the Whoopie in the Whoopie Pie.
