Healthy Whoopie Pies

Until I moved to Vermont, I had never heard of whoopie pies— a cream-filled cakey chocolate sandwich cookie originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They have a cultlike following in New England. At every roadside stop between here and Maine they are piled up in neat little stacks. And they’re quite delicious…but often made with a filling of sugar-laced shortening. So they’re not so stellar nutritionally.

canola is not healthy, because it has been genetically modified (GMO). Whole Foods was using Canola for 10 years and then there was a class action lawsuit due to people were getting sick from all the gmo's.

Sorry but this does not interest me at all. The main reason is that I avoid canola oil like the plague and have no fear of healthy natural saturated fat. I would use coconut oil instead of canola oil and nevermind what the grams of fat is or what the calorie count is. I would also use whole raw milk. Nonfat milk is not a whole food. what is with the fat-phobia?
