I was saving this recipe to myself.. But then I was like, why would I do that? I have to share this awesomeness! You will understand what I’m talking when you try it. Seriously.
I wasn’t planning on making a whoopie pie, I actually wanted to make brownies but my mixture wasn’t quite well to make a brownie so I though ok, let’s make big cookies! And one thing lead to another that the healthiest recipe for a whoopie pie came to exist!
These beauties are low in calories, gluten free, cacao free, very low in fat and incredibly delicious!

I tried to measure the ingredients to make sure you get all ratios right, I’ve notice that sometimes there’s confusion when I say “1 banana” and maybe I mean a small banana and you use a big one, you know what I’m saying? So for this recipe I measured most of the ingredients but still, I’ll post the quantities as close as possible to cups and tablespoons.
Gastrawnomica’s Super Healthy Whoopie Pie
Makes 1 big whoopie pie
30 grs oat flour (2 full tbsp)
5 grs carob powder (1 full tsp)
11 grs Tahini (around 1 Tbsp)
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 large ripe banana (around 50 grs)
3 tsp almond milk
1 small banana, 3/4 mashed
2 full Tbsp tahini or your favorite nut butter
1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh and ripe strawberries, mashed
Preheat oven at 350º. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper, lightly greased underneath.
Start by mashing the banana and then add the rest of ingredients, milk should be added at last. Mix in a small bowl until everything is well incorporated.
Take around 2 Tbsp of mixture for each cookie, it depends on how big you want them to be. I used almost half for each cookie, and had a little bit of leftover mixture, so I did a tiny cookie to test if it was good.
*The cookies by themselves are not very sweet, but consistency is very nice and once you fill them with all the fruit goodness, you’ll have the best dessert ever.
Bake for 15-20 min. Make sure they don’t burn or are either under or overcooked. They should have a nice brown color and firm to touch.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling by simply mashing the banana and mix with vanilla and 1 tbsp tahini in a small bowl. Feel free to add a touch of stevia or your favorite liquid sweetener if you’re not used to eat sugar free. For me it was sweet enough because the strawberries were perfectly ripe, not over ripe, and super sweet. Also, make sure your banana is ripe because if not, it won’t be sweet at all. Always go for spotted bananas!
In another small bowl mash strawberries. Mix and put both banana and strawberry mixture the fridge.
Once your cookies are ready, remove from oven, let it sit for around 10 min and then fill them with bananas, 1/4 of banana sliced and put the other 1 tbsp of tahini and strawberry mixture.
These are delicious, kid friendly, gluten free and even diabetes friendly!! The whole family can enjoy them and super guilt free because it’s all fruit, oats and a little bit of tahini. Plant based power!
Eating healthy shouldn’t be boring, bland or full of vegan substitutes, which I totally hate. Sometimes I see recipes full of vegan junk food, won’t get into that but.. *sigh..
Enjoy every single bite of this goodie, full of vitamins, minerals and packed with healthy fats and calcium from Tahini! Real food, for real people!
