Paleo Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies are a fantastic holiday treat. This year, I’ll be making them for Halloween, along with my Paleo Bagels. My boys and their hungry friends are gobbling up the grain-free bagels faster than I can make them these days. They also love my healthy whoopie pies. I’ll also be serving up all of these festive Paleo treats for Christmas and Hannukah.
If you’re in need of a nut-free whoopie pie for the holidays, you’ll absolutely love these, as the peanut butter frosting is made with [sunbutter]. You can also try my Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Pumpkin Filling, which are equally delicious and nut-free. All of my whoopie pies are easy to make, simply toss the ingredients in a food processor and then bake.

When fall arrives I pull my pumpkin recipes out of their file. I’m a huge fan of all things pumpkin as well as pumpkin spice. My husband? Not so much. While I add warming cinnamon and nutmeg to my daily (liver cleansing) Dandelion Coffee, he shies away from the flavors of fall.
