Not only are they perfect cookies… they are also awesome…WHOOPIE PIES! Whoopie pies seem to be super in right now, so we had to get in on the craze and make a filling that is made with real ingredients and not just loaded with sugar, but that still tastes great and makes your heart happy!

Go ahead, make a batch of these (or two or three!) and enjoy them without any guilt!

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 375
  • Combine dry ingredients
  • Combine wet ingredients to dry ingredients
  • Add in soft coconut oil…melted will give a fluffier cookie, try it both ways!
  • Place on a ‘greased’ baking pan
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes

Directions (cream filling):

  • Rinse and soak cashews overnight
  • Rinse cashews and combine with maple syrup, salt, coconut oil and lemon if desired.
  • Blend/process until very smooth!
  • Place in between two cookies and make a little ‘whoopee pie’
