Breakfast or Dessert? Either way, these healthy carrot cake oatmeal whoopie pies are freakin' delicious!



If you haven't heard of a whoopie pie before, then let me tell you this... you are missing out. Essentially, it's two pieces of cake or cookies, with icing in the middle. Sounds great right? Absolutely! So how can you make them even better? Make a carrot cake version that is not only delicious but actually healthy for you.


The thing I like the most about these healthy carrot cake oatmeal whoopie pies is they are low in calories, macro and diet friendly, loaded with vitamins and minerals and can be eaten on a daily basis without blowing your diet. And since my recipe makes a total of 8 cookies, it's a great way to meal prep some healthy breakfast or a snack to help keep you feeling good throughout the day.


Besides any chance I get to make anything carrot cake related, which as you know are my favorite desserts, is a great opportunity for enjoyment. And since the creation of these healthy carrot cake oatmeal whoopie pies all of my friends and family have been lining up to get some for themselves.


So instead of belaboring this, let's get baking!


Healthy Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies Ingredients:


4 tbsp butter (browned)

1 egg

3 oz almond milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 ½ cups quick oats

¾ cups flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

⅛ tsp cloves

½ tbsp black strap molasses


Buttercream Filling


4 tbsp butter (room temperature)

3 tbsp cream cheese (room temperature)

1 tsp vanilla extract


Cookies: Take out two bowls (1 large, 1 medium). In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients except the swerve. In the other bowl, add in the eggs, butter, vanilla extract and swerve. Thoroughly mix. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry bowl and mix well. Make sure everything is well combined. Once combined add in the carrots and mix again.


Set the oven to 350°. On a large cookie pan, add parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Add a small amount off to the sheet; should make about a 2” cookie. Bake for 11 minutes. Pull out of the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. Carefully transfer to a wire rack until completely cooled.


Icing: Add all the buttercream ingredients in a medium bowl and mix with a hand mixer until well combined. Add icing to a piping bag and add to the bottom of one cookie. Once you cover the side of a cookie, top with another cookie.
