NEW RECIPE! Vegan Chocolate Whoopie Pie

NEW RECIPE! Vegan Chocolate Whoopie Pie
Makes about 1.5 dozen (small whoopies)

1 cup soy milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup Earth Balance
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp toffuti cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a small bowl, whisk together the soy milk and vinegar. This will curdle to use as buttermilk.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flours, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a mixer or large bowl, cream together the earth balance and sugars till smooth. Add the vanilla to the curdled soy milk. Stir. Beginning with the wet ingredients, alternately add them with the dry ingredients into your mixer or bowl. Scrape down the sides, and stir until fully combined. Add the toffuti and mix till smooth. Use a small cookie scoop or a piping bag to drop the dough onto the baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes until the tops crack a bit. Take out of oven cool on baking racks/sheets. Cool completly before frosting.

Vegan Butter Cream Frosting (or chocolate, see note below)
1 cup Earth Balance
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup plain soy milk

Beat the earth balance until well combined and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for about 3 more minutes.
Add the vanilla and soy milk, and beat for another 5 to 7 minutes until fluffy.

(NOTE: to make it chocolate frosting replace 1/2 cup of powdered sugar with coco powder and add more sugar as you see fit for consistency)


  1. This is amazing! the cookies look great even without butter! as for the frosting, I lvoe Earth balance:)

    btw, it would be great if you could send these in for my sweet celebrations event on my blog!:)

  2. I have tried to make these twice now, and both times the pies come out flat as pancakes and burnt. I know I am not missing an ingredient, but is there any other specific directions that I may be messing up?

  3. I just updated the recipe... try now. How old are the chemical leaveners that you are using? Also allow the soy milk to fully curdle so it will act as buttermilk. THANKS!
