All kids just love whoopie pies, right? Needless to say, the ones you find in stores contain a lot of processed and unhealthy ingredients. My daughter tried these cookies twice and each time she felt sick afterwards. So I had to use my imagination and the internet to create a chocolate whoopie pie recipe that is still delicious but also healthy and made only with natural ingredients.
This recipe is very easy to make and doesn’t require many ingredients. This recipe will make about 24 cookies, meaning 12 sandwiches. At the beginning I was thinking that I would only make half this amount, but then decided against it and I’m glad I did! In the end, I only got the chance to taste one whoopie pie before they were all gone!
Here are a few tips when making this whoopie pie recipe: when making the dough, be sure to mix for about 5 minutes because the ingredients need time to set. Wet your hands when you mold the cookies otherwise most of the dough will get stuck on your fingers. If the dough is too sticky, just place it in the fridge for 15 minutes so you can work with it.
