Banana Whoopie Pie Recipe

Whoopie pies are pretty common here in PA. I tried my hand at making the traditional chocolate ones last year and they turned out great! Last week when I found myself with too many ripe bananas, I found a recipe for banana whoopie pies at Baking Bites. I used their recipe for the cake part but swapped in the misters family recipe for the filling. They were fantastic!

Banana Whoopie Pies

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cups mashed banana (2 medium)

Preheat oven 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vegetable oil, followed by vanilla and mashed banana. Add flour mixture and stir until just incorporated. Drop 2 tablespoon balls (approx 1 1/2-inch balls) and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned around the edges and “set” in the center. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies (1 dozen sandwich cookies).


1 unbeaten egg white
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. milk
3/4 c. Crisco
1/2 lb. Confectioner’s sugar

Combine egg whites, vanilla, flour, milk and Crisco. Beat until smooth. Beat in confectioners sugar. Spread ½ inch of filling between two cookies. Wrap individually with plastic wrap.
