Frozen Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

These carrot cake whoopie pies are a fun take on an ice cream sandwich! I love carrot cake because of it’s moist texture and the yummy spice flavor. This recipe is vegan, but don’t let you think it lacks in flavor and deliciousness. To make this low carb, it uses almond flour and quick oats blended up instead of regular flour.

I first tried out this recipe with low expectations because it is fairly healthy so that can typically translate to less flavor. I was pleasantly surprised with how moist these come out and the flavor with the filling is out of this world. My whole family loved these carrot cake cookies without the filling, but the filling does add that little extra something!

Not all whoopie pies are frozen or chilled, but I feel like these hold together much better when cold. Also it makes me eat them slower when they are cold so I’m able to limit myself to one.

What is a Whoopie Pie

Whoopie pies are just two cookies held together with some type of frosting or filling. In this case, these carrot cake cookies are held together with a cream cheese frosting. They will really make you feel like you had a big dessert because just one is actually two cookies! My kind of dessert 🙂

How do You make a Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie?

These may seem a little complex, but they are quite easy and can be put together in under an hour. You bake the carrot cake cookies, then assemble them all together! Let’s walk through the process:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. To make the flaxseed egg, mix the flaxseed meal with water and let it for 5 minutes. If you would rather use eggs, just one egg is needed.
  3. Add flaxseed egg (or 1 egg), vanilla extract, brown sugar and softened butter to a medium bowl. Stir until combined.
  4. Add shredded carrot and stir to combine. Add baking powder, almond flour and oats flour. Mix to combine.Fold in chopped walnuts and stir one more time.
  5. Prepare a large baking tray with parchment paper. Put 2 tbsp of the batter per cookie and flatten it a bit. Place them with at least 1 inch from the other.
  6. Bake them for 15-18 minutes or until golden in the edges.
  7. Let them cool completely before transferring.
  8. To make the frosting, place the vegan cream cheese, icing sugar and vegan butter in a medium bowl and mix with an electric or hand mixer. Place the frosting in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden.
  9. Once the cookies are at room temperature, prepare the ice cream cookies by adding 1-2 tbsp of the frosting to each cookie. You can consume them now or freeze them for at least one hour, which will make the cookie sandwich hard like ice cream.

Ingredients to Make Carrot Cake Cookies:

  • Quick oats, blend to flour consistency: Measure out 1 cup of the quick oats and blend them up in a food processor or blender to get the flour like consistency.
  • Almond flour: adds extra protein
  • Baking powder: this helps the cookie puff up.
  • Ground cinnamon: gives that spice flavor, a perfect compliment for the carrots.
  • Shredded carrots: save some time and buy them packaged pre-shredded.
  • Walnuts or pecan nuts: goth taste delicious and add that nice texture.
  • Maple syrup: This adds sweetness.
  • Softened vegan butter or coconut oil
  • Brown sugar: gives it a rich flavor.
  • Flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp water: is an egg substitute.

Ingredients to Make Frosting:

  • vegan cream cheese: works best at room temp for mixing.
  • powdered sugar
  • vegan butter: softened

Tips and Variations:

What if I don’t want to make this vegan? If you don’t want to make this vegan, just substitute the flaxseed for 1 egg, vegan butter for regular salted or unsalted butter, and vegan cream cheese for regular cream cheese. The vegan recipe may surprise you through, it’s really delicious!

How can I make this carrot cake cookie recipe sugar free? I know in previous recipes I’ve used monk fruit. It’s a great sugar substitute that can be substituted 1:1 in this recipe. For the cookies use the classic monk fruit in place of brown sugar and for the frosting use powdered monk fruit instead of powdered sugar.

Can I use ice cream instead of the frosting? Yes you can! Try our guilt-free keto ice cream recipe in between these carrot cake cookies! Just let the ice cream soften a little so it’s mushy, scoop and squish between. Freeze the whoopie pies for at least an hour and they are ready to eat.
