Keto Whoopie Pie Recipe
Whoopie pies are a cross between a cake and a cookie with a frosting filling. It uses two cake discs and a cream cheese frosting to form a cake cookie sandwich. What’s not to love about cake with frosting in a cookie sandwich form?
Whoopie pies originated in the New England region of the United States and have started to gain some popularity around the US. We had both heard of them, but have not really seen them in Australia much.
When recipe testing we often give some to our friends, as we want to make sure the recipe is as good as we think it is. None of our friends had heard of whoopie pies before and were pretty dubious about what they were about to eat. Well, let’s just say that whoopie pies are now on their radar when looking for a sweet treat.
180 Cakes is an Australian company based out of Western Australia. Kara began the company 2017 and she makes excellent baked good mixes using xylitol as the sweetener. We first fell in love with these mixes when we bought our first chocolate cake mix from Low Carb Emporium.
Low Carb Emporium stock a great range of these mixes including:
- Chocolate cake mix
- Vanilla cake mix
- Chocolate chip biscuits
- Vanilla almond biscuits
- Chocolate fudge brownie
- Chocolate cupcakes
- Vanilla cupcakes
- Chocolate frosting

Erika wanted to use the 180 Cakes Chocolate Cake mix to try and create a keto whoopie pie. One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to make. Simply order your 180 Cakes Chocolate Cake mix from Low carb Emporium and you will have the main things you will need to make these keto whoopie pies.

- When dividing the cake mixture onto the tray, you will want to shape each cake into a small disc. The cake mixture will spread slightly whilst cooking so make sure to leave enough space between each cake disc.
- Before assembling the keto whoopie pies, make sure the cakes are completely cooled to avoid the filling from melting.
- If using extra fillings like jam or nut butters, it’s easier to place the icing on one cake disc and the additional filling on the other cake disc and sandwich them together.
- The 180 Cakes Chocolate Cake with frosting mix is currently only available in Australia. If you are unable to access the 180 Cakes mixes we suggest using the Good Dees chocolate cake mix using the three eggs method on the pack.
- You can also make your own cream cheese filling using this great chocolate cream cheese frosting recipe from Ditch the Carbs.
- While we were recipe testing these keto whoopie pies, we decided to experiment a little with the fillings. These are delicious with just the cream cheese filling in the middle, but if you want to get creative try adding some jam or nut butter. We added some Hawthorn hill farms sugar free cherry jam to one of ours and it was an extremely tasty addition. You could also add your favourite nut butter as well.

- 1 pkt 180 Cakes Chocolate Frosting Mix (included in cake mix)
- 250 g Cream Cheese (Softened) 8 Ounces
- 0.5 cup Pure Cream
- Pre heat the oven to 150C/300F and line a baking sheet with non stick paper or a silicon mat
- In a medium sized bowl combine eggs, cake mix and butter and beat with electric beaters for 1-2 minutes until all combined. (We left the milk out from the original instructions of the cake mix to create a thicker batter)
- Spoon approximately 1.5 tablespoons of mixture onto the baking tray and slightly spread out. Repeat until you have 16 even cakes. They will spread slightly during baking so leave space in between. You may need to cook half at a time.
- Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until firm to the touch.
- Place on a cooling rack and set aside to cool. (Straight out of the oven they will be fragile, but as they cool, they will be firm)
- In a medium sized bowl, beat the cream cheese and the icing mix together until smooth and completely combined.
- Add cream to mixture and beat for a further 1-2 minutes, until cream is completely mixed through.
- Once cakes are completely cool, divide the filling mixture evenly between 8 of the cake discs and spread evenly to the edges. If you are planning on adding extra fillings, add them to the other 8 cake discs.
- Place the cake discs that don’t have the cream cheese filling on them, on top of the cream cheese filled cake discs and lightly sandwich them together.
- These will store in an air tight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
