Number of serving: 6
1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp sweet potato puree

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

2 Tbsp Sucanat or brown sugar

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp pure maple extract

1 large egg

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

2 oz all-natural marshmallow creme

1 Tbsp unsalted butter

1 Tbsp pure maple syrup

1/4 tsp pure maple extract


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Beat the sweet potato puree, maple syrup, and brown sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add in both extracts and egg, and beat until well combined.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together both of the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Using a mini ice cream scoop or a small spoon, scoop batter onto prepared cookie sheet. You should have 20-24 scoops of batter. Bake until cookies have puffed up and are dry to the touch, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Let cookies rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Meanwhile, prepare the maple marshmallow frosting. Clean the beaters, then beat the marshmallow creme, butter, maple syrup, and maple extract until smooth.
  • Spoon about 1 tsp of the marshmallow mixture into the center of half of the cooled cookies. Top with remaining cookies, gently pressing down to create a whoopie pie. Chill assembled whoopie pies until filling has set.
