Supreme Low-FODMAP Whoopie Pies with Low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Print Friendly Version

This is the best-ever recipe for low-FODMAP Chocolate Whoopie Pies with low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream filling.  I think Whoopie pies are one of the most fun desserts to eat (even the name is fun), and this low-FODMAP recipe does not disappoint!

These low-FODMAP Chocolate Whoopie Pie cookies are soft and rich with a deep chocolate flavor.  They are perfectly paired with the low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream.  Using my low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Spread recipe to make the low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream also means the ingredients are natural, and packed with good-for-you hazelnuts.

You can adjust the recipe to make Low-FODMAP Vanilla Whoopie Pies also- just see the note below.  Try these with my low-FODMAP Coconut Whipped Cream, low-FODMAP Vanilla Buttercream or low-FODMAP Opera Cream/Ermine Frosting for some other great dessert options.

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 12

Prep time: 30 minutes

Bake time: 12 minutes

Bake: 350 F


For Low-FODMAP Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cookies; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

  • 1 & ¼ cup Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend Flour (I prefer this flour type- see my bake off blog for the results and reason why!)
  • ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum (if not included in your flour)
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) vegan low-FODMAP margarine (such as Earth Balance for dairy-free version) or unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 tablespoon butter is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup low-FODMAP milk, such as lactose- free or almond milk (for dairy-free version)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar (this will be mixed into the milk to create low-FODMAP ‘buttermilk’)
  • 1 & ½ teaspoons vanilla

Note for Vanilla Whoopie Pie Variation:  Leave out the cocoa powder and reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup and the buttermilk by 1/2 cup! Simple.

For Low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream; Gluten-free, Vegan

  • 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) softened vegan margarine (such as Earth Balance)
  • 1 & 3/4 to 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/4 cup low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Spread
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 teaspoons low-FODMAP milk (such as lactose-free, or almond milk for vegan version), or canned coconut cream
  • Pinch of salt


Prepare the Low-FODMAP Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cookies

  • Heat oven to 350 F
  • Line two baking pans with silicone baking sheets or parchment
  • In small bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, baking soda, & xanthan gum until combined and set aside
  • Cream the margarine or butter and sugar in large mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy
  • Add the egg and vanilla until fully incorporated
  • Mix the vinegar or lemon juice with the low-FODMAP milk to create low-FODMAP ‘buttermilk’
  • On slow speed, begin to alternate the low-FODMAP ‘buttermilk’ and the flour mixture just until blended
  • You want the dough to look like you can scoop it
    • it should have a cake batter-like consistency, this type of cookie is a ‘drop cake’ style
  • Using an small ice cream scoop, or a tablespoon, portion out about 24 scoops of even-size mounds, 12 to a sheet, with about 1 inch between
    • I find the ice cream scoop works the best as the dough is pretty sticky
    • This will yield 12 whoopie pie sandwiches when assembled
  • Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon
  • Bake for about 12-14 minutes
    • They will still be slightly underdone in the center, that is OK
  • Cool 10 minutes on sheet and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely before filling

  • While cooling, prepare the low-FODMAP Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Frosting

Prepare the Low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream; Gluten-free, Vegan

  • In a large electric mixer, using flat paddle, cream margarine
  • Add ½ cup of confectioner’s sugar at a time and blend at medium to high speed until combined
  • After each cup of sugar has been added, add low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Spread about 1/3 at a time, then beat on high to combine well
  • Once all the sugar and low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Spread have been added, add the vanilla and beat
  • Next, add low-FODMAP milk one teaspoon at a time until the cream has reached the right consistency for whoopie pie filling
  • You may not need to use the milk depending on the consistency of your low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Spread
  • Last, add the salt and beat on high to combine well
  • Once low-FODMAP Chocolate Whoopie Pie cookies are cooled, place about 2 tablespoons of low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate cream on the flat side of one whoopie cake  (can use a spatula, or pipe onto the cookie base)

  • This is the fun part…

  • Sandwich with another low-FODMAP Whoopie pie cookie, flat side toward the center

  • Repeat until you have 12 low-FODMAP Vanilla Whoopie Pies with low-FODMAP Hazelnut Chocolate Cream

  • Now take a big bite…close your eyes…and enjoy.

  1. chocolate filling

    Thank you for this recipe, it is amazing. I would love a plain chocolate filling (not a hazelnut fan), do you have a variation of just chocolate, I couldn’t find one on your website.
