These Pumpkin Cream Filled Whoopie Pies are the perfect dessert for pumpkin spice season! Chewy homemade pumpkin cookies are filled with a rich pumpkin cream filling.
I am so in love with these pumpkin whoopie pies.
Well, I guess I'm in love with pumpkin season in general too. I've been busy making all kinds of pumpkin inspired recipes - especially pumpkin desserts!
But this is one of my absolute favorites.
These pumpkin whoopie pies are:
- A fun, family friendly dessert.
- The perfect treat for Fall!
- Easy to make in 30 minutes.
- Gluten free, dairy free and paleo.
The homemade pumpkin cookies are so soft and chewy, with a hint of vanilla. These can be enjoyed on their own too!
The great thing about these pumpkin whoopie pies is they aren’t made from conventional, processed flours.
I made use of almond and tapioca flours, which you can easily find in your grocery stores or on Amazon. This makes them gluten-free and paleo friendly!
In addition to this being a paleo and gluten-free recipe, I wanted to make the pumpkin cream filling dairy free so I used coconut cream – this is basically the thick part of a can of coconut milk, placed in the refrigerator overnight.
This mixed with some honey and pumpkin puree gives you a sweet and velvety pumpkin cream.
