It’s finally here!
Probably the most waited recipe ever! I posted a picture of these goodies a couple of weeks ago and totally forgot to post it. It’s definitely one of the “best mistakes” I’ve ever done.
There’s such a funny story behind this dessert, I kind of forgot about my cookies in the freezer and found them like 3 days later.. But won’t get into too much detail and just make you all happy by sharing the recipe below!
Gastrawnomica’s Raw Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich
Makes 2 small ice cream sandwiches
2-3 Tbsp coconut flour
2 small ripe bananas, pureed
1 Tbsp carob powder
2 frozen bananas
Vanilla extract or vanilla beans to taste
Mix pureed banana with coconut flour and carob until you have a dough. Add flour as needed. Form 2 balls and spread between two parchment paper sheets. Roll until you have a thin layer (not too thin!) and using a cookie cutter make 2 circles. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
**Always adjust dried ingredient ratio, it will depend on how big your bananas are. Mine were small, but if you see it isn’t coming together just keep adding flour or puree, it should be easy to get it like a dough.
Using the same sheets, leave circles in the fridge for 3-5 hours until hard. Take cookies and frozen bananas from freezer when you are ready to serve them. Blend frozen bananas and vanilla in your food processor until creamy . Scrape down the sides if necessary.
Scoop some of the ice cream (preferably using an ice cream scoop) and put right in the middle of one of the cookies. Gently top the second cookie and press lightly. Freeze again for a couple of minutes if ice cream got too soft or serve right away, cookie should be soft. I topped mine with dried mulberries, coconut shreds and sifted coconut flour.
Another way to make it is to roll the dough and make 2 squares instead of circles. Using a toothpick make some little dots to make it look like the real ice cream sandwiches we all tried in our childhood and follow same process.
So what do you think? Isn’t this the best invention ever? Coconut flour is the best creation ever made. Seriously.
If you try it let me know what you think! Au revoir for now!
