While they aren't likely to fool any meat-eaters into thinking they're eating a real hamburger, these adorable whoopie pies are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Totally vegan. Totally delicious.
Hamburger Whoopie Pies [Vegan]
- 1/4 cup non-dairy milk of choice
- scant 1 tsp vinegar
- 1/2 cup vegan 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
- 2/3 cup silken-firm tofu (140 g)
- 6 tablespoons coconut butter or raw cashew butter
- scant 1/8th tsp salt
- small handful spinach
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- sweetener to taste (stevia, agave, sugar, etc.)
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- Mix vinegar into milk, and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix very well.
- Then put all the other liquid ingredients into the vinegar mixture and stir.
- Pour wet into dry, and stir to combine.
- 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!)
- Bake around 8 minutes.
- Blend everything in a blender or food processor. 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.
