Low Carb Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Keto Cheesecake Buttercream are a low carb remake of a classic childhood favorite.



Chocolate Whoopie Pies:

  • 140 g (1 1/4 cups) almond flour or meal (both will work here)
  • 1/4 cup (20 g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon beef gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 48 g (about 1/3 cup) Swerve Confectioners
  • 4 drops stevia glycerite
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1 large egg

Cheesecake Buttercream:

  • 1 cup (1/2 batch) of my Low Carb Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe here:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F; line 1 large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
  2. Whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, beef gelatin, baking powder, and salt, in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Beat together the butter and Swerve Confectioners, and then beat in the stevia glycerite, vanilla, molasses, and egg.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and let the batter rest for 3 minutes.
  5. Use a 1-tablespoon scoop to measure out the dough. Roll each into a ball and arrange them on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart (they should all fit on 1 large baking sheet). Slightly flatten each ball to a circle about 1 3/4 inches.
  6. Bake until the cookies are set, about 10 minutes, rotating the tray once halfway through, and then cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, sandwich 2 cookies together with a slightly heaping 1 tablespoon of buttercream.
  8. Store the whoopie pies covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
