Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

These Red Velvet Whoopie Pies are perfect for Valentines Day for a loved one, or for yourself anytime of year– they are VEGAN and healthy! Such a fun recipe! These are chocolate flavored, but red thanks to the beets! Add a drop of food coloring or use a regular egg and less cocoa powder to keep the batter lighter in color and more red.

  • 1/3 cup Almond milk
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1-3 Tbsp Cocoa powder
