Chocolate Chip Cookie & Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ok y’all – I had a rough week and usually when I’m having a bad time I turn to sweets. I figured this would be a great opportunity to channel my sweet craving into a Vegan MoFo theme post! What could I do on the cheap that was gluten-free and really hit the spot?

Well, as I was wandering around the devil’s playground The Whole Foods in Glendale I came across some of my favorite cookies (Eat Pastry) and knew they had an excellent gluten-free chocolate chip variety: SOLD!

But what could I do to jazz them up a bit???

Wanting to get the hell out of dodge as quickly as possible (I have never seen so many angry, miserable, rude people in one place before!), I remembered I had some frozen bananas in the freezer and the light bulb went off. Ice cream sandwich cookies!! I checked out as fast as I could and sped away (there may have been a finger involved on the way out, but I plea the fifth on that one) to get home to make this wondrous treat.

Everyone is always talking about making ice cream out of frozen nanners so I figured now was the time to try it out. Hot dang – it works! And I am feeling like a genius for matching these two up. Plus, it made my day a little bit better :)

      I wish I could send you some Pili! But they have to be refrigerated :( I bet you could make amazing GF cookies from scratch though!

    What an amazing idea! Rarely does it occur to me to make my own ice cream sandwiches, but now I’m feeling like they should always been in my life. The possibilities are endless.

    Also, as my much as I love Whole Foods, I often wish I could just say exactly what I’m thinking, or show what I’m thinking with a finger, when I’m there because I always manage to be there at the worst possible hour…Tip: Never go there on Christmas Eve. Seriously. Don’t do it. It’s not worth it.

      The Whole Foods I normally go to is never that bad, it’s something about this particular one! But excellent advice – avoid at all costs on Christmas Eve!! :)

    My go-to comfort food? Chocolate, of course :) only rivalled by the heavenliness that is the Nougat we have in Germany. Basically chocolate hazelnut praline, perfectly smooth. But I never find it anywhere… which is probably better anyway^^

      Do you have a Whole Foods? Most of them carry it…pretty much every health food store I’ve been to has it too!
