Directions

1. Place oven racks in center of oven. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 1 large cookie sheet or 2 small ones with parchment paper. 2. Combine flours, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, guar gum, coffee granules and salt in a bowl and whisk to mix. Set aside. 3. In a small mixing bowl, add 3 teaspoons egg replacer plus 4 tablespoon water. Beat or whisk until frothy. 4. Pour egg replacer into a large mixing bowl and add vegetable shortening, brown sugar, vanilla, coconut milk and maple syrup. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. 5. Add flour ingredients ½ cup at a time to insure no lumps appear, beating on low speed until all dry ingredients are combined. Then beat on medium speed 2 to 3 additional minutes or until batter is smooth. 6. Using a medium ice cream scoop, drop spoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet, spacing at least 3 inches apart. You should have 16 cookies. 7. Place in preheated oven and bake 10 to 12 minutes for 3-inch cookies, less time for smaller cookies. (Cookies are done when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.) Cool cookies completely. 8. To assemble whoopie pies, pair cooled cookies by size. Place flat side of 8 cookies up and spread a generous amount of filling on each. Top with the matching-size cookie to make a sandwich. TIP: Gluten-free egg replacer is available from Ener-G Foods and Bob's Red Mill. Whoopie Pie Filling If filling is too thick, add additional coconut milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. If too thin, add more sugar. 1¾ cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted ¼ cup palm shortening or margarine 2 tablespoons coconut milk 1¼ teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1. Combine confectioners’ sugar and shortening in a mixer bowl and beat on low speed. 2. Slowly add milk and vanilla. Increase speed and beat on medium until mixture gets fluffy. Then beat on high for 1 minute to increase volume of filling. 3. Store filling in the refrigerator until ready to make pies. It will get hard in refrigerator but will soften in minutes at room temperature. TIP You can vary the filling by adding ¼ teaspoon of flavor extract, such as coconut, strawberry or raspberry. Always add vanilla first and then add the smaller amount of other flavor.
