Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

Cool: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

Cake

1 1/4 cups (about 1/2 box) spice cake mix

1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt

2 tbsp. molasses

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

 

Filling

1/2 cup natural light whipped topping (like the kind by TruWhip or So Delicious)

1/3 cup canned pure pumpkin

1 packet natural no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Dash salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 12-cavity whoopie pie pan with nonstick spray. (We got ours on Amazon!)

In a medium-large bowl, combine all cake ingredients. Add 2 tbsp. water, and mix thoroughly. (Batter will be thick.) Evenly distribute batter into the pan, and smooth out the tops.

Bake until a toothpick or knife inserted into one of the pieces comes out mostly clean, about 10 minutes.

Let cool completely, about 10 minutes in the pan and 15 minutes on a cooling rack.

In a medium bowl, mix filling ingredients until uniform.

Evenly top 6 pieces with filling. Top with remaining 6 pieces.
