If there is one concept that’s always a crowd pleaser, it’s ice cream cookie sandwiches! Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I made one, because either the cookies weren’t firm enough or it didn’t hold together well and the list goes on. That being said, I was curious to test a recipe that actually worked.. and the vegan Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookie Sammies were born!!
What’s fab about this recipe, is simply everything! The cookie base is 3 simple ingredients that features no flour, no white sugar, and can be made in minutes. On top of it’s effortlessness, the cookie is actually sturdy online many brittle crumbly almond flour cookies I’ve seen. In addition to the texture of the cookie which is great for ice cream, the chocolate provides even more stability to hold it all together and the final results is just amazing!
It’s quick, easy, affordable, the cookies are great by themselves, you can switch up the ice cream flavors, the chocolate is sweetened with stevia, there is no dairy or eggs, the chopped peanuts add texture, they are perfect for any season, pack protein from the peanuts and almond flour, are filling, and perfect for entertaining!
