Gluten Free Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Sandi Gaertner
Gluten free pumpkin whoopie pies are a classic fall treat in our house. Added almond meal helps balance out the sugars, and maple syrup and coconut sugar sweeten these cookies, making them healthier.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend in this recipe. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. Note, you can substitute brown sugar for coconut sugar and butter instead of coconut oil.
