In partnership with FaveHealthyRecipes, I was turned on to these treats watching late night shows on the Food Network channel, and I was pretty sure I could make this low carb. After a couple days of trying, I hit upon a winner, and my wife agreed it was ready for prime time. These Whoopie Pies get their name from supposedly Pennsylvania or North Eastern farmer wives who packed these pies into their husband lunch pails, and when the husband discovered them he cried “Whoopie!” Either way they are delicious, and I’d urge you to try them out.

    Looks delicious. I just need? to get some coconut meal, already have the almond meal, so many recipes, so little time. The molasses, how much of a difference in flavor do you think it makes? I don’t have any of that either

    Oh, my gosh- You have made my life so much easier! I just? found out not too long ago that I am a diabetic. I’ve made the Scotcharoo’s plenty of times, and now this one is my next mission! Thanks for all your help <3

    Hey man, I really …
    Hey man, I really enjoy all the help you provide to all low carbers. I have a question. Why am I deep in ketone’s but not able to lose weight beyond the first 10 lbs? I stay below 20 carbs. Could it be my high fat dairy? remember that at all times I’m? in moderate or deeper on the ketone strips. I’m thinking maybe I need to drop all dairy and up my raw veggies?

    I would recommend 3 …
    I would recommend 3 items or less sweetened with Splenda per day. That isn’t a specific amount of Splenda because the exact amount of sucralose will depend on what the specific items are. The difference in the total amount between though 3 mock danishes, 3 diet cokes, or 3 servings of cheesecake probably is? not worth worrying about.

    How much splenda would you recommend in a day. You are my Atkins guru so forgive me for shooting? all my questions your way.

    But while I was losing I actually was off soda for nearly 2 years. At maintenance, it’s returned? to my diet.

    It is a serving of …
    It is a serving of the item — the amount of sweetener may vary. So yes these may work out to be more than a single packet of Splenda in one, but it counts as one. You may choose to have less than one serving or reduce the sweetener in the recipe if it appears too sweet or appears to affect your blood sugar levels.? I rarely have desserts on a daily basis (maybe 4 times a week), so most often my sweetener intake is from diet soda currently.

    Occasionally I will have a regular diet coke now.

    Do these have more …
    Do these have more than the recommended amount of splenda in them? I read that you are only suppose to have three servings but I am having more and thought about cutting back but splenda is the only way I can have coffee anymore ( I use to use the seriously sugared creamers) and I even put it in my iced tea. How much splenda do you use on average? Do you ever have anything with aspartame in? it?

    This is a high fat …
    This is a high fat diet. so you need to wrap your brain around fat is a good thing. ? It always has been. It was only during the misguided 80s and 90s that fat equals fat gained a foot hold as opposed to placing the blame where it truly belongs.

    I am glad that each of us has found what worked for them. My heart after 8 years has never been healthier. The reports of heart damage are about as fraudulent as vegans wasting away due to no protein in their diet. There are myths on both sides, and thankfully the body is more than? able to thrive on a wide variety diet/tastes.

    Good luck to you.

    Ok. I was on a low carb diet for quite some time up until about a year ago, so? I know that eggs and meat are more staple foods than fake sweets and such. I’m high carb vegan now, and I feel a lot better. Good for you that the Atkins diet is working, but please take care of your heart. 🙂 Peace

    The videos also …
    The videos also show people that they don’t have to give up everything they love to eat. That foods like this can exist within a certain place in LC. That said some people never give up that taste for sweet and have to have it every day or worse at every meal. If one was an every mealer, I would? suggest weaning off the dessert.

    As for fake pasta, many people come from that background or have used pasta to extend their food budget. Things like cauliflower and squash play that role here.

    I have talked about …
    I have talked about this before in my video “Do low carbers want their old lives back?”, but here it is again. Don’t make the mistake of assuming my videos reflect what I eat in my diet on a daily or consistent basis. How many times could I make a video on how to prepare a steak or bunless? hamburgers or chicken fajita salads before I would drive off every viewer? Recipe videos therefore show off what is unique or interesting about my diet.

    Why are people on a? low carb diet so obsessed with sweets and fake pastas?

    Nuts are the only …
    Nuts are the only the difference between Extended Induction and Regular Induction. Dr. Atkins mentioned 3 or 4 times in DANDR that nuts were allowed after the first 14 days. That may be? different in the new book. You could leave HWC out of this recipe and it would be fine too. Another option would be a good cheesecake or mock danish for a quick treat too.

    No, this came from …
    No, this came from the North East United States and perhaps Amish in the area, but given the universality of oreos, I thought most would like this recipe. ? These aren’t like the hard crunchy oreos but rather the cake like ones.

    They can be. They do last well in the fridge, but I am guessing they would? be pretty tolerant to freezing too.

    These look great. I’m wondering if they can be individually wrapped and frozen (otherwise, I’d probably end up eating? the whole batch in one sitting).
