I was turned on to these treats watching late night shows on the Food Network channel, and I was pretty sure I could make this low carb. After a couple days of trying, I hit upon a winner, and my wife agreed it was ready for prime time. These Whoopie Pies get their name from supposedly Pennsylvania or North Eastern farmer wives who packed these pies into their husband lunch pails, and when the husband discovered them he cried “Whoopie!” Either way they are delicious, and I’d urge you to try them out.

An awesome snack reminiscent of Suzi Q's or HoHo's snack cakes.
- 5 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup Splenda, granular
- 1 tsp black strap molasses, optional
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/3 cup water
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 3 tbs butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup powdered sweetener
- 1/2 cup Splenda, liquid equivalent
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- To the stand mixer bowl, add butter, Splenda, and optional molasses, and cream ingredients together.
- Add cocoa powder, egg, vanilla, and baking soda to the mixing bowl, In large bowl, add almond and coconut flour together, and mix together. In a small bowl, add cream and water, and stir. Turn on stand mixer to low speed, and alternate adding a portion of flour mixture and wet ingredients until all are combined. Scrape down sides of mixer, and mix for another 20 seconds on medium.
- Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper, and using a tablespoon, portion out dollops on the sheet pan. Only do one pan at a time, refrigerate the batter in between batches. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Move the finished cakes to a cooling rack to cool for 30 minutes. Repeat process for remaining batter.
- In a second stand mixer bowl, add cream cheese, butter, vanilla, powdered sweetener, sucralose, and heavy cream. Cream the ingredients together.
- Match the Whoopie pie cakes with similarly sized cakes. Take the bottom, and spread the filling on top. Place top cake on filling, and press top cake down.
