Dessert takes over my mind on a nightly basis. You could say it's an obsession, but I feel like that's going overboard. It's something that I'm not willing to admit. Well right at this moment for the very least.

But I'm sure the more I talk about these sensational peanut butter and roasted banana ice cream sandwiches, my mind can be swayed. Because they're dessert heaven.

They're icy and delicious, just like an ice cream sandwich should be. But what makes them special is they're not the classic chocolate-vanilla flavor profile. Oh no, these babies made with two of my favorite ingredients in the world: peanut butter and banana.

And what goes better together than peanut butter and bananas?

Ever since I was little, ice cream sandwiches have been a total vice of mine. I completely blame this on my mother because it's one of her guilty pleasures. It's a summer thing for her, especially when we're at our beach house in Maine. Sitting on a hot beach, eating a creamy, ice cold ice cream sandwich, is pretty much heaven to me (and to mom). What about you? Are you an ice cream fiend like us?

Lucky for us, we have a treat that's not only sinfully delicious, but also relatively healthy too. The ice cream? Just bananas and maple syrup. The cookies? Organic peanut butter, honey, quinoa flour (+ a few others) and oats. Sound pretty nutritious huh?

Now I'm not saying you are allowed to eat an entire batch of these ice cream sandwiches, but what I am telling you is that you can have one (maybe two) at this weekend's summer celebrations and totally enjoy every minute of it.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Toss sliced bananas with the maple syrup and coconut oil. Add to the baking dish and roast for 20 - 25 minutes until the bananas are softened and are slightly caramelized.
  • Transfer the bananas to a freezer safe container and freeze.
  • Once completely frozen add the bananas to the bowl of the food processor fit with the steel blade and process until completely smooth. The mixture will be very soft and won't be ready for the sandwiches.
  • Transfer the banana mixture to a mason jar (or some other circular container - a juice glass may work as well). Allow the ice cream to freeze completely.
  • Once frozen, remove the ice cream from the container and slice into 1/4 - 1/2 inch rings. Place the rings between two cookies and return to the freezer. Let chill for 20 - 30 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

This would also be delicious just eaten as is!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. In a separate mixing bowl, beat all the wet ingredients until combined and smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Taste and add stevia until you get to your desired level of desired sweetness.
  • Scoop the dough onto the cookie sheets (I use an ice cream scoop to do this). Flatten with the back of a wet fork and bake in the center of the oven for 13 – 15 minutes, until the cookies have started to brown and are a little crispy to the touch.
  • Cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool for another 5 or 10 minutes.

  5. Brilliant! I love this recipe! I’m such a sucker for ice cream sandwiches, however since going dairy free I have not been able to indulge. I love this idea. This would be a great dessert for dairy free kiddos as well. Glad I found your blog…

    • Thank you, thank you!! Let me know if you end up trying it. I’ve been experimenting with other healthy ice cream options, so keep your eyes peeled 🙂

  6. Oh, wow! I love peanut butter and banana together, and this looks amazing! I’m especially excited about the method for making the roasted banana ice cream – so healthy, but it sounds really delicious, especially with the depth of flavor that will come from roasting the bananas! What a wonderful and nutritious dessert for summer! Can’t wait to try it!

    • Thanks Shelley! The ice cream is so easy to make and it tastes amazing!! Gotta love those healthy indulgences 🙂
