A Great Low Carb Chocolate Dessert!

We love to get creative with our baking mixes, and these Keto Peppermint Whoopie Pies might just top our list of favorites.

They are so fun, easy to make, and SO delicious.

Using just 2 ingredients added to our low carb Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix, we make soft and rich brownie cake rounds. A whoopie pie wouldn’t be complete without a messy filling — and this peppermint whipped cream is a true dream!

The ingredients needed for the whoopie pies shown prepared with labels.

You’ll love these Whoopie Pies because:

  • They are sugar free, and full of healthy fats from almonds, coconut, and whipping cream.
  • The centers are colored with a secret superfood rather than dyes! Matcha tea adds a beautiful green color and a little pop of antioxidants as well.
  • These just get better as they sit in the fridge for a couple days — so make them ahead of time or enjoy them for a few days as a healthier snack.

How to Make Keto Peppermint Whoopie Pies

Step 1: First, make the batter for the cake rounds. We use our Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix for these – so it’s super simple to put this batter together! Add some coconut oil and eggs and mix it into a thick, almost cookie dough-like batter.

Step 2: Scoop the batter into 1 1/2 tablespoon balls, and place them 2 inches apart on a baking tray.

Step 1 shows mixing up the brownie mix, and step 2 shows forming balls with the mix.

Step 3: Use wet fingers to press the brownie balls down into disks about 1/2 inch thick. They won’t fully spread if you leave them in balls. Bake them for about 9 minutes.

Step 4: Make the peppermint whipped cream filling but adding whipping cream to a mixing bowl, and whipping it until peaks form. Add the powdered monk fruit sweetener, matcha tea, and peppermint extract, and whip to combine. Adding gelatin to this filling helps it take on a marshmallow-like consistency once they’ve chilled, so melt some gelatin in some water and then slowly whisk it into the peppermint whipped cream.

Step 3 shows flattening the brownie balls before baking, and step 4 shows making a peppermint cream.

Step 5: Allow the brownie cake rounds to fully cool before filling.

Step 6: Add about 2 tablespoons of the peppermint whipped cream mixture to 1 cake round, and sandwich it with a second. Squish them together lightly to make the filling spread out inside of them.

Store leftover whoopie pies in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Your Perfect Keto Whoopie Pie Filling

A traditional whoopie pie has a marshmallow filling. We keep these low carb and add some healthy fats by using a decadent whipped cream and gelatin filling. It has the same chewy texture and is the perfect canvas to create your perfect whoopie pie filling flavors!

We asked on Instagram for what holiday flavor you wanted, and peppermint was the clear winner. We 100% agree the chocolate and peppermint is an amazing combo.

Other ideas were:

  • Cranberry: Omit the matcha and the peppermint extract, and use 2 tablespoons of pure cranberry juice (no sugar or water) to bloom and melt the gelatin.
  • Pumpkin Spice: Omit the matcha and peppermint extract, and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to the whipped cream mixture.
  • Egg Nog: If anyone experiments with this flavor, let us know how it goes! It sounds amazing.
  • Peanut Butter: Add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter into the whipped cream, instead of the matcha and peppermint extract.
