You can make everything you want vegan, even whoopie pies, as this recipe will prove. Not quite a pie, not quite a cookie or cake, these fun desserts are somewhere in between and now they're vegan too. It's a sandwich and it's a dessert; it's sweet and chocolatey as well. The sweet creamy filling is sandwiched between two chocolate cakes, served with a fork and can satisfy your weekend sweet cravings or be served up for a throwback party treat.

Makes 10 pies.


  • 1 cup almond milk, dairy free

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 cup (5 1/3 tablespoons) soy margarine, dairy free

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons egg replacer powder, mixed with 3 tablespoons hot water

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) soy margarine, dairy free

  • 1 (8-ounce) tub dairy-free cream cheese, such as Tofutti

  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla soy yogurt, dairy free

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the dairy-free almond milk and apple cider vinegar, and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, or until thickened and slightly curdled. Set aside.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside on the counter.

  3. In a large mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat the dairy-free soy margarine and sugar until fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the egg replacer mixture, and beat until the mixture is creamy and well combined. Add the dry mixture in several additions, alternating with the almond milk mixture, until all ingredients have been added and the mixture is smooth.

  4. Using an ice cream scoop or measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the prepared sheets, leaving about 2 inches between cakes. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cakes spring back when pressed. Use a spatula to transfer the cakes to a wire cooling rack, plate or an unwarmed cookie sheet to cool. Be sure to test that they are completely cooled before filling.

  5. Make the filling. In a large bowl using an electric hand mixer, cream together the dairy-free soy margarine, dairy-free cream cheese, and confectioners' sugar until the mixture is combined, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the dairy-free soy yogurt and mix until smooth.

  6. Turn half of the cooled cakes upside-down (flat-side up), and spread a generous amount of filling. Top with the other cakes (flat-side down) and serve.
