You will need a Nonstick 12-Cavity Whoopie Pie Pan in order to make the whoopie pies. These are a lot of fun and you will use it again in the future because your kids will want the pies over and over again.

When my kids saw the outer layer of the whoopie pie they got excited, but when I filled it with cream cheese buttercream made with Go Veggie vegan cream cheese they wanted them immediately. They could hardly wait for the Red Velvet Whoopie Pies Gluten and Dairy Free to cool and were grabbing the cake shell off of the counter before I could even frost them.

While making these I used my Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend and it worked perfect.

This recipe makes 9 because they are rich and decadent, but feel free to double it if you have some hungry people around.

Nothing says I love you like a homemade treat for your valentine, especially when you deal with food intolerances and restrictions. I personally know seeing a delectable treat made with love is the best gift. These Red Velvet Whoopie Pies Gluten and Dairy Free will wow whomever you love in your life!

Cream Cheese Buttercream

  • 2 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 TBSP. Coconut Milk
  • ½ Cup Vegetable Shortening
  • ½ Cup DF Butter
  • ¼ Cup Go Veggie Cream Cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the cavities of the whoopie pie pan and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, add the egg, sugar, butter, and coconut oil. Mix on medium speed for 1 minute.
  • Add the milk and vanilla. Mix on medium speed for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides.
  • With the mixer on the slowest setting, add the xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, AP flour, cocoa powder and red food coloring. Mix on medium speed for 4 minutes scraping down the sides halfway through.
  • Fill the cavities of the whoopie pie pan ¾ full until batter is gone and bake for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and allow them to cool for 2-3 minutes. Pop them out and let them cool on a cooling rack lined with parchment paper.

Cream Cheese Buttercream

  • In a stand mixer, add the shortening and butter. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and cream cheese. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the powdered sugar and coconut milk. Beat on medium high speed for 4-5 minutes or until the frosting is smooth and fluffy.
  • Once the cake is cooled you can fill the whoopie pie by frosting the middle of one of the shells. You can use a knife or pipe it on. Place the other shell on top and serve. If your frosting is very soft you can refrigerate the whoopie pies for 20 minutes to help it thicken up.
