Ingredients

Cookies
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Swerve, Granular
  • 1/4 cup unflavored whey protein powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Filling
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp Swerve, Confectioners
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups chopped strawberries (chop them fairly small so the whoopie pies hold together)

Instructions

Cookies
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, Swerve, protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the eggs, butter, almond milk and vanilla extract until the dough comes together.
  3. Using wet hands, roll the dough into 20 balls, each about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Place the balls a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Press each ball down to about ½ inch thick.
  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until set and just firm to the touch but not really browned. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Filling
  1. In a medium bowl, whip the cream with the Swerve Confectioners and vanilla extract until it holds stiff peaks.
  2. Spread the bottom of one cookie with about 1 ½ to 2 tbsp of whipped cream and top with a layer of chopped strawberries. Top with another cookie.
  3. Repeat with remaining cookies, whipped cream, and strawberries.
  4. Serve right away. Refrigerate any leftovers (they can also be made a day ahead and refrigerated until served).

    How does it come up with 3 carbs total Net --when it states 19 grams total.

    • Swerve

      Hi Terri! Thank you for visiting our website! Since Swerve doesn't affect blood sugar, the carbs from Swerve are considered non-impact. So to find total NET carbs, you take the total number of carbohydrates, then subtract fiber and Swerve to get 3g net carbs. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

    This recipe looks delicious. I can’t wait to try it. I’m out of whey. Is there anything I can substitute? Or does it need whey? Thank you!

    • Swerve

      Hi Meghan, The whey is in the recipe to help improve the texture and create a more fluffy cookie. You can simply leave it out if you don't have whey!
