Carob & Rosemary Whoopie Pies

Carob & Rosemary Whoopie Pies

Louise Rhodes from Willunga WinoI went a little mad and made a very modern sweet, carob and rosemary whoopie pies with pistachio cinnamon butter. This was adapted from a recipe I saw on Instagram from Chispagram. I also wanted to share a little taste of my paradise here in McLaren Vale, so I tried to incorporate as much delicious local produce as possible. I’ve marked these ingredients with *LOCAL. All ingredients I used were organic.

The result is a tasty treat, a mix between the texture of a cookie and a brownie, that aren’t too sweet. Herb and spice flavour shines through and they are great with a hot drink for a no-guilt treat!

  • Whoopie Pies:
  • – 1 cup of corn flour
  • – 1 cup wholemeal flour  *LOCAL (Try Pankgarra)
  • – 1 cup of non dairy milk *LOCAL (Try home made almond milk from activated Willunga almonds)
  • – 1/2 cup of walnuts, roughly chopped *LOCAL (Try Willunga Farmers Market walnuts)
  • – 1/4 cup olive oil *LOCAL (Try Lucilla Willunga olive oil)
  • – 5 heaped tbsp of roasted carob powder *LOCAL (Try The Carob Kitchen)
  • – 1 tbsp of finely chopped or ground rosemary
  • – 1/4 cup of sweetner (I used rice bran syrup) *LOCAL
  • – 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
  • – 1 tsp of baking powder
  • Pistachio butter:
  • – 1 cup shelled pistachios
  • – 1/4 cup of sweetner (I used rice bran syrup) *LOCAL
  • – 1 tbsp cinnamon powder

1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. 2) Cover pistachios with hot water in a small heatproof dish and set aside. 3) Mix the whoopie pie ingredients together. Mixture should be a thick dough. 4) Form balls with the dough, about walnut shell size, and flatten to about 1 1/2 cm rounds onto an oven tray lined with baking paper. Space them evenly. 5) Bake for 10 minutes (350F/180C). Let it cool down completely 6) Drain the water off the pistachios and discard. Blend pistachios with sweetner and cinnamon until creamy and smooth. 7) Spread a thick layer of the pistachio cinnamon butter on 1/2 of all the whoopie pies (flat side). 8) Sandwich them closed. 9) Enjoy with coffee!
