I am sorry I have neglected you for the last week sweet teeth!  Between a birthday weekend in Las Vegas and getting caught up on some other projects, you must think that I have forgotten all about your wants, needs and cravings!  Not so sweetsies.

One of the things I always love to do when I travel is to visit bakeries, sample offerings and simply gawk and the sheer artistry of the baker’s creations.

It is so much fun to see the fine pâtisserie’s spin on the trendiest desserts.  Speaking of trends, what do think is currently the most popular treat?  Cupcakes will always be popular due to the convenience of their individual packaging, but I think macarons and whoopie pies have really taken the spotlight.  I have tried my hand at macarons, and still bow down to those that can successfully make them as if they are nothing more than a drop cookie.  And I love whoopie pies because you get 2 cakey cookies packed into one serving and all of this filled with a luscious filling or frosting.

I have been working with Bob’s Red Mill on some recipe development for a few of their new products.  When they contacted me, one of the new products up for sampling was coconut flour.  Since coconut is one of my absolute favorite flavors, I could not wait to dive in and try this gluten-free flour that also has the additional health benefits of being a great source of fiber and protein.  When researching the product I learned that when using coconut flour, due to the lack of gluten, more eggs and liquid must be used in a recipe.

As soon as I received the products from Bob’s Red Mill, I was anxious to open the flour to smell and feel it.  Upon opening the bag of coconut flour, I was instantly swooning over the mild sweet smell of coconut.  I thought long and hard about what I would like to make and share with Bob’s Red Mill customers and all of you and I decided that I could really maximize on coconutty flavor by making whoopie pies.  I was so pleased with how they turned out and could not wait to share the recipe with you all!  If you are a coconut lover, these Coconut Whoopie Pies with Coconut Cream Filling will have your sweet tooth satisfied!  The pies themselves are so soft and moist and the filling that is enhanced with coconut milk and toasted coconut is pure bliss.  If you love coconut like I do, you may just find yourself wanting to use these perfect little whoopie pies as pillows to induce sweet dreams!
