This recipe comes from https://www.theedgyveg.com/ and you should give these delicious vegan wings a try– I promise they will taste JUST like the meat version. The seitan chicken has taken me roughly 2 years to perfect. It is moist, and perfectly spiced. For the “bones” you can use either sugar cane or popsicle sticks; or you can simply have “boneless” wings!

Bake for 12-14 minutes, rotating pans once halfway until surface is dry and slightly springy. Remove to cooling rack and cool completely. Repeat with other batches (you will do this 2 more times for the whole batch).
6. Once cool, pipe good amount on the underside of one cakie and top with another to make whoopie pies. Repeat with whole batch. Should be stored in fridge once cooled bc of the cream cheese.
