How to Make Keto Whoopie Pies

This recipe is split into two parts: the “cake” layers and the cream cheese layers.

Let's go over a step-by-step tutorial on how to make these Valentine's Day treats!

Keto Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Start with the Whoopie Pie Batter

First, beat the butter and sweetener until fluffy.

Then, mix the dry ingredients together and add to the wet mixture before adding the rest of the wet ingredients including red food coloring.

Make sure your batter is a bright red.  The cake layers will turn take on a slightly more brown appearance after they've baked.

How to Make Whoopie Pie “Cakes”

Coat your hands with oil and roll 1 tablespoons of batter in your hands to create a ball. 

Then flatten the balls into roughly 2″ discs.

The oil will help to keep the batter from sticking to your hands and it will also create a nice and smooth appearance to your cake layers.

The recipe makes 12 whoopie pies, which means you need 24 red velvet cookies. 

Twelve cookies fit on a baking sheet, so if you don't have two baking sheets, you can make the cookies in two batches. 

The cookies only take a few minutes to bake, so it won't add much extra time.

Add the cookies to the oven and bake at 350°F for 6-10 minutes or until they are cooked fully.

Coat your hands with oil and roll 1 tablespoons of batter in your hands to create a ball.  Then flatten the balls into roughly 2" discs.  The oil will help to keep the batter from sticking to your hands and it will also create a nice and smooth appearance to your cake layers.

Make the Cream Cheese Icing

While the cookies are baking, make your filling.

All you need to do is add the ingredients to a mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to combine.

Using an electric mixer will get the filling really light and well-whipped.

This filling has a similar taste and texture to frosting, so save this recipe and reuse it on top of keto cupcakes next time.

How to Frost Keto Whoopie Pies

Using a piping bag to pipe your cream cheese frosting on will give you perfect and consistent-looking whoopie pies.

If you don't have a piping bag, pour your cream cheese frosting into a Ziploc bag and snip off the corner.

Then squeeze the frosting onto the center of the cookies.

Top the frosting with another cookie and you have yourself a finished whoopie pie!

Coat your hands with oil and roll 1 tablespoons of batter in your hands to create a ball.  Then flatten the balls into roughly 2" discs.  The oil will help to keep the batter from sticking to your hands and it will also create a nice and smooth appearance to your cake layers.

Make Sure To Let Your Pies Cool Before Adding Frosting

If you add the frosting while the whoopie pies are still warm, it will melt and get runny.

But if you want the frosting to stay thick and white, then wait until the whoopie pies are completely cool first.

It's hard, we know!!
