Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Pumpkin Filling

When queried on Facebook many of my readers suggested I name these treats Chumpkin Whoopie Pies!

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!
