The Minimalist Baker blog put together a vegan-friendly recipe for chocolate whoopie pies. A whoopie pie is a miniature dessert that features two mound-shaped pieces of cake with a creamy filling sandwiched between them. The tasty dessert is a classic American treat that comes in many different varieties.

While whoopie pies are a beloved treat, they are traditionally made with ingredients that are not appropriate for those who adhere to a vegan diet. This recipe puts a healthy spin on the classic sandwich cookies by making them without the use of dairy or gluten. The cake batter itself is made from almond meal, gluten-free oat flour and a flax egg. The filling is made from coconut whipped cream, which provides a dairy-free form of frosting. To make the recipe even healthier, the cookies are sweetened with natural ingredients instead of refined sugar.
