Totally vegan.
Totally delicious.

Hamburger Whoopie Pies

This Recipe is :


For the buns (makes 12 circles)

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • scant 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (or white flour)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • just over 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice (or white sugar)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oil (coconut or canola/veg)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

For the burger fixins

Feel free to get creative. I sliced strawberries to represent tomatoes. For the green frosting (i.e. the spinach!), I used a small portion of this recipe:

  • 2/3 cup Mori-Nu silken-firm tofu (140 g) (I’m sure soft-silken would work too!)
  • 6 tablespoons coconut butter or raw cashew butter
  • scant 1/8th tsp salt
  • small handful spinach (You can’t taste it! But if you doubt me, you can use food coloring instead.)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • sweetener to taste (stevia, agave, sugar, etc.)


For the buns

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Mix vinegar into milk, and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix very well.
  4. Then put all the other liquid ingredients into the vinegar mixture and stir.
  5. Pour wet into dry, and stir to combine.
  6. Drop tiny circles (a little over the size of a silver dollar) onto 1 or 2 cookie trays. (Or, if you have a whoopie pie maker, you can use that!)
  7. Bake around 8 minutes.

For the burger fixins

  1. Blend everything in a blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet cup. This frosting is thicker when cold, so it’s a good idea to make it up ahead of time. But don’t frost the whoopie pies until just before serving (or frost them and then store in the fridge). I put the frosting in a plastic bag and cut a tiny hole in the side to squirt it out.





Katie Higgins writes the vegan blog, Chocolate-Covered Katie, where she creates recipes with three things in mind: Healthy. Vegan. Delicious. Katie refuses to believe that a person must sacrifice yummy food in order to be a healthy vegan. We can have our vegan cake (preferably chocolate) and eat it too! On her blog, Katie aims to show that being a vegan is not restrictive; it’s FUN!
