Whoopies!

I've only eaten like 17 cookies now that I've finished testing out varieties of fillings for whoopie pies. I also feel like garbage primarily due to consuming all chocolate items for dinner, all of which (believe it or not) were paleo. Paleo or not, nobody should ever eat that much. Gah!

I get really giddy about these treats. Not just whoopie pies, but paleo whoopie pies! Whaaat?
I don't even care that I just stayed up way too late on a work night to make them.
So. Totally. Worth. It.

DA WHOOPIES

1/4 almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

*Directions*
Preheat oven 350 degrees. 
Place parchment paper on a large cookie sheet.
Place dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together.
Add the wet ingredients, except for the coconut oil. Mix batter on low with hand mixer for 3-5 min.
Melt coconut oil, add slowly to batter as you mix with handheld mixer.
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the batter into balls, placing them on the parchment paper. You can use a small or large size ice cream scoop (adjust cooking time accordingly). Then use a spatula to press on the balls. This will flatten them out and prep them for cooking.


Bake about 10 minutes for the large size and about 6 min if you plan on making small whoopies. Let them cool on a wire rack while you make your frosting/ice cream.
*We'll let you decide on what you want in the middle for your filling. We tested out making a banana-almond butter ice cream and a coconut milk/almond butter creamy mix. Both of which weren't anything to die for. Hence the reason for the lack of photos. Or maybe because I ate too many of them too fast I wasn't able to keep up with photos. Next time we may just cheat and buy some sort of coconut ice cream and slab it on the whoopies.



"Who is that bum eating our whoopies?"
