Enjoy a popular dessert while you are on the keto diet. This keto pumpkin whoopie pie recipe is as yummy as it is delicious!
If you feel like you have to give up all things sweet on the keto diet, you haven’t tried these whoopie pies. They have the perfect cookie texture and actually taste just like pumpkin pie. Keep reading and learn how to make them, even if you are a beginner or new baker.
Keto Whoopie Pies
Have you ever made whoopie pies before? They are basically like soft cookies with a creamy filling. I like to call them chewy grown-up Oreos! I love whoopie pies, especially in the fall. When fall rolls around, I have to make these!
Usually, whoopie pies are a sugar nightmare. From the cookies to the sugary-filling, one portion would throw you out of ketosis so fast. I made just a few changes that keep them keto-friendly without losing the texture and flavor that I adore.
Best Keto Whoopie Pies
I’ve seen people make chocolate or gingerbread whoopie pies, but pumpkin ones are the best! Here’s what I used to make my keto whoopie pies, along with any substitutions or replacements.
- Almond Flour – Use only blanched almond flour. If you use almond meal, the cookies will have a grainy texture.
- Pumpkin Puree
- Vanilla Extract
- Baking Powder
- Swerve Granular Sweetener – Use your favorite sugar-free granular sweetener.
- Baking Soda
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – You can make your own pumpkin pie spice – this recipe is perfect.
- Cream Cheese
- Crushed Pecans – These are optional, if you don’t like nuts (or have an allergy) you can leave them out.
- Swerve Confectionary Sweetener
Low-Carb Pumpkin Dessert To Make With Kids
This is a really kid-friendly fall dessert. Not only do kiddos love eating them, but they are a blast to make too!
If your kids are able to mix and bake cookies, then they can help make these too. You basically do the same thing, except this time you add filling to the middle of two cookies.
There are plenty of opportunities for even the smallest helpers to measure and stir. You can even let them taste the filling before they add it – there is nothing unhealthy about this recipe.
This is going to be one of your favorite kid-friendly keto snacks. The only downside is that your kids might eat all of them before you have a chance to enjoy some!
What to Serve With Them
Are you craving pumpkin yet? I sure am! This is a low-carb way to get your pumpkin fix. When you are ready to enjoy your whoopie pie, pour a hot cup of coffee – they are a match made in Heaven.
You can save them and serve them as a dessert, snack, or even a breakfast treat. They really are healthy enough to serve any time of day – with lots of protein and healthy fats!
How To Store Whoopie Pies
Since these are filled with cream cheese, store them in the refrigerator in a sealed bag or container. They will only stay fresh with the best texture for a day or two. This recipe makes about 6-12 whoopie pies, depending on how big you make them.
