These Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Pumpkin Filling are not only gluten and grain-free, they’re dairy-free and nut-free as well.
Whoopie pies are little cake-like cookies filled with a rich creamy center. I’ve long wanted to make a gluten-free, grain-free whoopie pie cookie with a dairy-free filling. These treats are perfect for Halloween. No silly, these are not for your trick or treaters, give them out at a gluten-free Halloween party or just as a fun snack to your own little ghosts and gobblins.
These nut-free whoopie pies are based on my Paleo Chocolate Cupcake recipe another gluten-free, nut-free dessert recipe that comes in quite handy around the holidays. I hope you enjoy this whoopie pie recipe!

Here are some healthy candy recipes to serve at a gluten-free Halloween party!
How would you make the pumpkin Whoopi’s pies Keto? What could you substitute for the honey?
Mary, I haven’t tried that so not sure. Here’s a link to my Keto Diet Dessert Recipes page for you:
I am going to try sugar free maple syrup, we will see!
Delicious! I’m not a coconut lover so I used palm shortening instead of coconut oil and they came out perfectly. I actually made the peanut butter frosting instead of the pumpkin filling and it is delicious. I baked mine for 9 minutes because I have never made whoopie pies and didn’t know what they were supposed to look like. I think I did it too long because I was nervous they were going to be eggy as coconut flour baking can sometimes be. I got 16 “cookies” but the 16th was smaller than the rest. To make these last longer I just did open faced with a dollop of frosting on top. Already want to make a double batch ASAP! Oh also I didn’t use stevia I just used vanilla and mine were sweet enough for me and I have a sweet tooth.
Thank you so much Elana for creating recipes that I can enjoy and feel good about putting in my body! I am so grateful to not have to make it up by myself!
Lexie, so glad you liked the Whoopie Pies :-)
Would roasted sweet potato be a valid replacement for the pumpkin in the whipped cream?
Marilyn Cooper says
I made them twice with sweet potato and they were just as good.

Hi, I’ve tweeted you a few times about how much I love these and thought I’d let you know that I’m making them right now for literally the millionth time since you posted the recipe last year. I don’t make them into sandwiches because I find that when I bite the cream oozes out. So I do the pumpkin whipped cream and sometimes top with chocolate chips. And then in the whipped cream I don’t know if this is an ingredient that you use but I also add coconut palm sugar to the honey. You’re always my go to for baking because I love that you use few ingredients and minimal bowls for less cleanup. I never used my food processor for baking and it’s a much easier cleanup than my kitchen aid mixer which takes up a lot more space in the dishwasher.
Thank you so much for all of your time consuming trial and error work, it’s very, very appreciated and you really do have the best baking recipes!

Can these be made ahead and frozen?
Did you used to have an almond flour whoopie pie recipe? I think I remember seeing one on your website. Thanks!!
Holly Kaehn says
I have a reaction to stevia when used in the past. Is there anything else you suggest?
LOVE your recipes! I love whoopie pies- how can I make them with no pumpkin, just a cream filling- without using heavy cream?
thanks so much for doing this!!!!
