Peanut Butter Brownie Whoopie Pies

That’s brownie on the outside and peanut butter frosting on the inside. Need I say more? I need not, but I will. The brownies are actually made with nonfat yogurt no oil / no egg! This makes them the perfect consistency for the whoopie pie and a wee bit better for the wee one in my life.

My kid was feeling camera shy when we made these. And even though he loved using the stand mixer, he didn’t want me taking a picture. I wonder if he’s starting to think of me as paparazzi? Regardless, despite his claim that he doesn’t like chocolate, he gobbled these brownies right up. Now for the recipe…

Peanut Butter Brownie Whoopie Pies Recipe

Prep Time: 10 mins  Cooking Time: 10 to 15 minutes

1 package No Pudge! Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mix [1] (or another mix and follow the directions)
3/4 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temp)
2/3 cup powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If you are using the No Pudge! Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mix [1] stir together mix and yogurt until it becomes shiny. (You can use any brownie mix and follow the directions on the back of the carton instead.) Carefully spoon mixture into a well greased whoopie pie pan. [2] Bake for 10 minutes and then test with a toothpick. If it’s clean, the brownies are done. If not, bake a few more minutes and test again. When the toothpick comes out clean remove from oven and turn over on to a cooling rack. Meanwhile, use an electric mixer to beat together peanut butter and butter. Slowly add the sugar until it becomes frosting. When brownies are completely cooled, assemble the whoopie pies by spreading a layer of frosting on one round brownie disc and then placing another brownie on top. Makes 12 pies.
