Big fluffy Gluten Free Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are my favorite fall treat. Giant soft pumpkin cookies with creamy filling make the best whoopie pies. Fun colorful sprinkles are optional :-).
If you love pumpkin as much as I do, you will want to check out ALL of my yummy gluten free pumpkin recipes!
I am still playing with pumpkin this week. My kids are starting to think I have an ulterior motive for all of these pumpkin recipes. This week we are making whoopie pies! And even better, these whoopie pies are pretty healthy!
Veggies Hidden in Desserts
My kids think I live to hide veggies and all I can say is "HA! At least orange is a lot easier to sneak in than green!" They seem willing to put up with this more when it is a dessert I hide veggies in!
Whoopie pies really are one of my favorite desserts. Anytime you sandwich a sweet glaze or frosting in between two soft and moist cake-like cookies is a good time for me! If you prefer a non-veggie whoopie pie, you will love this Gluten Free Banana Whoopie Pie recipe.

How to make gluten free pumpkin whoopie pies:
You will be surprised when you look at the ingredients of these cookies. Believe it or not, they are super healthy...except for the frosting. They are soft and melt in your mouth with a delicious hint of pumpkin spice.
The whoopie pie cream I used is frosting that I bought, but you can fill yours with whipped cream or frosting.
Whisk your dry ingredients until thoroughly blended.
Add in your wet ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
Mixing in the wet and dry ingredients.
After I used a cookie scoop to drop the batter onto the baking sheet, I pressed them down and shaped them so the cookies would all be roughly the same size.
Use your hand or glass and smoosh down the cookies a bit. This will ensure your cookies aren't too tall and that they will fit in your mouth :-). Bake at 350F degrees for 8-10 minutes until done. (Baking time depends on the size of your cookies.)
Use a piping bag filled with vanilla frosting to pipe the frosting onto the whoopie pies. Add a top cookie and enjoy! **Grab this deliciously easy Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting recipe that I have in my gluten free vanilla cake recipe. The cream cheese frosting really pairs well with the pumpkin flavors!
