👨‍🍳 How To Make

Easily make low carb pumpkin whoopie pies. Follow these steps:

Step 1

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, in a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, xanthan gum, pumpkin spice, and salt.

Step 2

Take another large bowl and beat the butter with an electric mixer. It should become fluffy. Then, add the eggs and granular erythritol. Beat for about one minute and then add the pumpkin puree and vanilla. Beat again for a minute until well combined.

Step 3

Add the dry ingredients slowly into the wet ingredients and beat until the mixture is well combined.

Step 4

Take the batter – about 1 tablespoon at a time and spoon it onto the baking sheets.

Step 5

Make sure your hands are wet and then smooth out the spoonfuls of batter. They should be flat and about 1 1/2 – 2 inches in diameter.

Step 6

Bake for 10-12 minutes. The edges should begin to brown. Then remove from the oven and allow them to cool before adding the frosting and assembling.

Step 7

To make the cream cheese frosting layer: in a bowl, beat together the butter, vanilla, and cream cheese (use an electric mixer). Slowly add the confectioner’s erythritol and beat for a few more minutes.

Step 8

Add the frosting to a piping bag (if you don’t have one, use a ziplock bag with a hole cut in one of the corners). Pipe about 1 tablespoon of frosting to the bottom cookie layer. Add the top cookie layer and press. That’s it! Enjoy the keto pumpkin whoopie pies.

💡Tips

1. Achieve the Perfect Batter Consistency

To create perfectly soft and fluffy keto pumpkin bread whoopie pies, it’s important to achieve the right batter consistency. After combining your wet and dry ingredients, mix the batter until it’s smooth and well-combined, but be careful not to overmix.

Overmixing can lead to tough, dense cookies. The batter should be thick enough to hold its shape when scooped onto the baking sheet, but not so stiff that it’s difficult to work with.

If your batter seems too dry, add a little more pumpkin puree; if it’s too wet, add a touch more almond flour. Finding the perfect balance will result in whoopie pies with a tender, cake-like texture.

2. Cool Completely Before Frosting

Before assembling your keto pumpkin bread whoopie pies, it’s important to let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack. If you try to add the cream cheese frosting to warm cookies, it will melt and run off, creating a mess and resulting in less-than-perfect whoopie pies.

Once cooled, pipe about a tablespoon of the cream cheese frosting onto the flat side of one cookie, then gently press another cookie on top to create a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining cookies and frosting.
