↠ Vegan Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich Bites.


If you have been following along lately, you maaaay notice that I have somewhat of a sweet tooth. I think I was just born with it frankly. However, trying to turn a treat into something a little healthier never hurts? Ice cream sandwich bites! No baking, no churning required.


It's a super easy vegan friendly recipe. 


INGREDIENTS

COOKIE DOUGH

  • 1 cup date paste (pitted dates blended) 
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

ICE CREAM

  • 3-4 frozen bananas
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • Optional: more chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine all the cookie dough ingredients. Mix. It should just barely hold together, if it’s too dry add more date paste.
  2. Divide into 2 equal parts.
  3. Press half of the dough into the bottom of an 8x5' pan (or a loaf pan or even a tupperware container) lined with parchment paper. 
  4. Blend the frozen bananas and coconut milk until smooth. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and blend briefly to combine.
  5. Pour on top of the cookie dough.
  6. Freeze for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes to prevent ice crystals.
  7. Press the other half of the cookie dough into a rectangle.
  8. Once the ice cream is firm enough, add the top layer of cookie dough and gently press.
  9. Freeze overnight (or at least 8 hours).
  10. Once frozen, slice into bars and enjoy! Keep in the freezer.
