Vegan Whoopie Pies

Updated on March 11, 2014

I never even knew what Whoopie Pies were until somewhat recently with so many recipes reaching the mainstream. I guess I led a sheltered whoopie pie childhood since I have no recollection of these tasty morsels. I had my first whoopie pie last year at an outlet center food stand. My first thought was "how did I miss out on these?". The rest is history because, of course I needed to make my own at home and then tried a vegan version. This one is my favorite.

      I was pretty much deprived of whoopie pies, also. Maybe I can make up for it in my second youth. These look quite tasty.

      these look amazing. I think I've had whoopie pies twice and I too, never heard of them until very recently
