Ok. It’s finally happened. I’ve come over to the pumpkin side.

I tried to fight it. To ignore my inner desire to be immersed in pumpkin and it’s sweet sweet pairing with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and nutmeg but the starchy fruit won.

Ok first off, I made these pumpkin whoopie pies way too big.  The cookie is filling as heck.  You will feel like your stomach will explode if you try to eat one this big in one sitting.

I’ve described how to make them smaller in the recipe.   I also froze mine because they make yummy ice cream sandwiches too.

Have you ever tried these with an egg substitute, like a flax egg or banana? i can't do any form of egg but these sound amazing!

Could you use Almond Flour instead? I have a friend that is allergic to coconut flour. Love this recipe.

No, the measurements would be very different so you would have to recreate the recipe entirely.

Kelly, does this actually make just 6 cookies or 6 "whoopie pies"?

I can't wait to try this but I think you have an error in STEP 5, the part about "peppermint flavor"
