Another Sample Recipe from Cooking TLC, Vol. II   

BATTER:

  •  1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sugar-free syrup (any flavor desired)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla or other extract/flavorings
  • and/or 5 Tb. cocoa powder (optional)
  • and/or 1/4 cup nut butter (optional)
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten (for best texture, but if you eat gluten-free, then use all oat flour instead)
  • 1 cup protein powder (any flavor desired, see link for suggestion and review nutritional panel, your choice needs to be similar to match recipe carb count) 
  • 2 tsp. baking soda (1-2/3 tsp. @ high altitude)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven toTLC Whoopie Pies 350 F.

Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or grease very well and dust with protein powder.

Whip mayonnaise, sugar free syrup, and liquid flavorings, if using, until smooth.

Sprinkle cocoa powder (if using) over top of mixture, followed by remaining dry ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Divide into 32 small mounds. (I like to use a disposable pastry bag to pipe the batter out, but you can spoon out dollops, too.)

Bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool briefly before filling.  

FILLING:

  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 2 Tb. hot water
  • 1 cup granular Splenda™
  •  1-2 tsp. vanilla extract or other flavoring 
  • 2 Tb. cream

While batter is baking, beat cream cheese on low until smooth.

Slowly add remaining ingredients, then beat on high speed until fluffy, scraping sides as needed. 

Spread flat side of one mini-cake with generous amount of filling, then top with an additional cake.

Wrap each sandwich individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate. They won’t last long, and do freeze well. You just may find that half of one of these at a time is plenty.

About Karen

Less than a year after starting a low-carb diet, I was TEN SIZES and SIX HUNDRED cholesterol points lighter! Now, YEARS later, (I am into "decades" now) I STILL love and live a low-carb life! Interests I have TWO grand-angels now, a husband of 24 years, and two kids, one of whom is grown and making those grandbabies (my girl), the other still in school (my boy). I do everything for the office end of my husband's electrical contracting business, as well as everything for my website(s), and am fortunate enough to (read that: I worked my butt off so I could!) live in the beautiful Vail Valley of Colorado. When I can find a spare minute, which isn't that often, I like to ride my big bad motorcycle or ski, depending on the weather.
