Strawberries & Cream Whoopie Pies

Pink Easter Bunny rabbit on gluten free whoopie pie.

Pink Easter Bunny rabbit on gluten free whoopie pie. Honestly I never thought I would be posting whoopie pies on my blog. I was never a huge fan of them. Not sure why, I mean they are two cakey cookies with gobs of creamy frosting in the center. That is sure tempting. If offered a choice I go for layer cake way before a whoopie pie. Until now. These little creamy, strawberry cookie-cakes rock my world. The fabulous news – they are filled with great for you ingredients.

Is this little dessert a cake or a cookie? They are something in between. Let’s say a soft cookie sandwich that gives way to a creamy sweet frosting, filling. Nice!

Guilt free, low fat, sugar free strawberries and cream whoopie pies

I ohh and ahh whenever I look at whoopie pies online. They are really pretty and happy, plus they have that cute name and all. As most of you know, I don’t eat traditional sweets any more. They taste great, are fun to gaze upon – but they just don’t make me feel good. In true MarlaMeridith.com style I have lightened up, cut out the sugar and come up with a dang good recipe for this sweet treat, with no sacrifice in flavor.

Gluten Free whoopie pies with strawberry sauce

Gluten free rice flour and finely ground corn flour create such a fabulously textured cookie. They almost melt in your mouth. The crumb is fine and yet the cookies are dense enough to stay together to make a sandwich with a sweet strawberry cream cheese filling.

Having extra strawberry sauce is always nice too. Dip your little pies in it, enjoy it over ice cream, greek yogurt or sauce up your favorite breakfast. With hints of spring everywhere and Easter around the corner I am so excited to break out the brighter colored clothes, accessories and kitschy table top goodies. How cute are these juicy colored animal cupcake toppers?

    It’s hard to say what my fav is because I’ve only actually ever had them once but I do have a pic of it! http://www.flickr.com/photos/gapey/4750520151/ This was a zucchini whoopie pie and it was delish! Would love to make some myself.

    Marla these look amazing!! The photography is just out of this world. And arent you just Miss Thinking Ahead shooting with Easter bunnies/props in advance of Easter.

    I am chuckling, too, b/c as I type this I am looking at your beautiful family, then a Pillsbury ad, then a risque Fredericks of Hollywood ad on your sidebar. haha! Wonder if they have anything whoopie oriented for Easter 🙂

    • Marla
      Posted at 05:38h, 14 April

      Averie: Amazing what ends up on my sidebar ads. I have never seen the one for Fredericks of Hollywood. Hilarious! Perhaps I need to adjust my settings – but that adds some spunk, yes? Maybe they are selling sassy Easter costumes over there, saw the word “whoopie” and came running over. Go figure. I think their models need to hold some strawberry whoopie pies as props. Hmmm.
      Yes, I do think waaayy ahead of the holidays for props, recipes, styling etc. By the time the actual holiday rolls around I am so over it! lol. xo

    I think my problem with most whoopie pies is that they end up coming out super dry. And they are not a cupcake. Major downfall.

    Yours definitely look delicious! I love all of these strawberry recipes you’ve been coming up with lately!

    • Marla
      Posted at 05:34h, 14 April

      Joanne: Can you tell I am somewhat addicted to strawberries? Thank goodness they are in abundance and locally grown here in CA. We go through many containers each month. I have many strawberry posts lined up – think I need to pace myself 🙂

    My favorite whoopie pie, so far, is the classic chocolate. The only other flavor I have tried so far is pumpkin. Would love to try experimenting with other flavors. You’re strawberry whoopie pies look great!

      Kristin: You gotta try them. I can only imagine the fun you would have with the kids making whoopie pies at home! By the way, just received my prize package from Westminster Crackers from your fab Soup-a-palooza event. My kids are loving them! HUGE amazing package with all kinds of goodies. Ties in perfectly with all the cheese I received from Kerrygold the day before!

    • Marla
      Posted at 07:10h, 14 April

      Mareya: That’s not weird. As I mention in this post, they are usually something I avoid – until now. They are super popular these days though. Lots of books, blog posts and fascination with this vintage treat. I think I am gonna go on a guilt-free whoopie pie kick!

  • Deliciously Organic
    Posted at 06:46h, 14 April

    These look beautiful! My favorite is the classic chocolate with vanilla filling. Every year I’ll make the recipe from Cooks Country and the kids go crazy. These would be fantastic at breakfast!

    • Marla
      Posted at 07:12h, 14 April

      Carrie: How neat! “Cooks Country?” OK, I have not a clue what that is, but if your girls go crazy for them then I KNOW they are fabulous! Yes, these would be perfect at breakfast and the great thing is there would be no sugar crashes after. xo

    The cornmeal is a great idea. You can see how the crumb shapes up due to the gritty texture. That’s a fun feel on the tongue with a creamy filling. We’ve only made whoopie pies twice–once, sweet, the other savory. The first time was a classic red velvet, and they were definitely good. Perhaps savory is more fun though. You may not feel as guilty eating them. http://www.duodishes.com/recipe/special-events/los-angeles-avocado-takedown/

    These are the cutest spring whoopie pies! I’ve never actually eaten any homemade whoopie pies. I remember seeing a recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies that sounded amazing for the cooler months.

    • Marla

    Thank you so much for adapting this recipe! I have several co-workers who are sensitive to gluten, so I’m always on the search for recipes I can take for work pot-lucks to include them. This is so fantastic! THANK YOU!

    I’ve never had a whoopie pie, but the red velvet ones taunt me from the bakery case at Starbucks!

    A friend and I just made our first whoopie pies (carrot cake) last week! They were more “cookie” than “cake” in texture. I’d like to attempt some different flavors and/or adjust the recipe to see if I can make it lighter, while still holding its form. The cookbook would be GREAT!!

    I have to laugh because Janice and I spent all day Tuesday cooking up a healthy whoopie pie of our own. Ours features pumpkin puree … and when we post the recipe (still tweaking), we’ll be sure to link to your recipe. Not too many healthy whoopies out there (most I saw online use shortening). I have not used corn flour before. Where do you buys yours?

    • Marla
      Posted at 20:20h, 14 April

      Liz: I get my corn flour at either Whole Foods or my favorite local natural foods store “Mother’s Market.” I always buy Bob’s Red Mill brand, great quality & the easiest to find too. Can’t wait to see your whoopie pies. I gotta pumpkin one in the works too!

    Wow, Marla, these are so cute and I can’t believe how delicious they look for a gluten-free baked treat! Wonderful job on them, and what a creative idea for all these juicy California strawberries cropping up in the markets. Let’s see… my favorite whoopie pie would have to be a friend’s gingerbread with cream cheese frosting creation. Pretty good, but I bet these would even top those!

    • Marla
      Posted at 15:23h, 15 April

      Georgia: Now you have me craving gingerbread whoopie pies. I must develop a recipe for those. I want to explore tons of flavors. I just love making these! I am smitten with gluten free flours. Really liking the flavors and texture much more than the whole wheat pastry flour I usually use. Corn, oat and brown rice flours are a bit more neutral and adapt to flavors better. LOVE the brown rice flour – it will be showing up around here a lot more.

    I’ve never been a big whoopie pie fan either, largely, I suppose, because of all that frosting in the middle. But, in your smart and super-talented way, you really have turned this kid favorite into a healthy, delicious treat that anyone (including me!) would love. So happy to see strawberries in the mix here too.

    • Marla
      Posted at 21:16h, 15 April

    I would be happy just to gaze upon yours~your photos are sublime:)

    • Marla
      Posted at 12:59h, 16 April

      Grace: It sure would be nice if strawberry season was everlasting. Alas, sometimes we just need to turn to apple, pears, pomegranates and fall-winter fruits 😉 Carrot cake whoopie pies have gotta be a win and that is all there is to it.

    LOVE banana whoopie pies with any sort of filling… banana is a great base for chocolate, cream cheese, caramel, vanilla, almond… etc. Yum! Can’t wait to try these when strawberries are more seasonal here!

      Carrie: Banana must happen oh so soon, it does pair well with all the ingredients you mentioned. Love the texture and flavor it adds to baked goods.

    […] Gluten free rice flour and finely ground corn flour create such a fabulously textured cookie. They almost melt in your mouth. The crumb is fine and yet the cookies are dense enough to stay together to make a sandwich with a sweet strawberry cream cheese filling. Via 192.163.193.237/~marlamer […]
