Chocolate Protein Whoopie Pies are almost too good to be true and super simple to make. They are so rich and dreamy you won’t even miss the original whoopie pies. Better yet, these are a tad healthier and I even snuck in a little protein.

Okay, I know frosting isn’t healthy so I kept it to a minimal amount. Just 1/2 of a tablespoon adds 35 calories. To make an even healthier option substitute creamy nut butter or SunButter in the middle.

Healthy Chocolate Protein Whoopie Pies

Add some colorful fun to the cookies and roll the sides onto colorful sprinkles. Match the colors of sprinkles to different holidays or party themes.

 

Here Are A Few Thoughts To Consider:
  • Adding instant coffee to chocolate cakes, brownies, and cookies enhances the chocolate flavor, but feel free to omit it if you prefer.
  • For a low sugar chocolate protein whoopie pie, substitute the sugar with equal parts of Monkfruit Sweetener. This sweetener is easy to use and baked items are just as delicious and flavorful as if you used regular sugar.
  • My “go-to” allergy-friendly vegan frosting choice is Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Vanilla, Chocolate, and Funfetti. This brand does have corn.
  • For a corn-free and vegan frosting try Simple Mills Vanilla.

  • 1/3 cup mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice; I prefer almond or peanut butter

Notes

Store chocolate protein Whoopie pies in an airtight container at room temperature for several days or refrigerate for longer storage. I prefer to freeze mine; they will be ready to enjoy in just a few minutes or anytime later that day just as fresh as the day they were made.
