WHOOPIE PIE INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In one bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Cocoa and protein powders can clump so be very thorough.
In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet until the mixture is well incorporated. The texture should be pudding-like. If it's too stiff, add another tablespoon of almond milk.
Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
Scoop the batter onto the parchment making 2" sized circles; leave room for cakes to expand as they bake.
Bake at 325 F and begin checking for doneness at 10 minutes. Cake is done when set and a knife inserted at the thickest part comes out clean.
Allow to cool on a rack completely before filling.
Cream room temperature cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
Add powdered allulose a little at the time until well incorporated. I prefer using 2 cups for a less sweet option.
Add vanilla and a pinch of salt, if using unsalted butter.
Pipe or spread onto fully cooled cakes and assemble your whoopie pies.
