Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches (V, GF): a plant-based recipe for thick, creamy ice cream sandwiches made with chocolate chip cookies! Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free.
Happy June!!! Does this officially mean the summer’s started??? Please, someone say YES!!! Because this year’s been crazy, right? Feels like January, February, March and most of April was snow all day, e’vryday.
Then April and May were like, guess what?? Snow will be replaced by rain. And you have no choice in the matter!
Who knew April and May were so sassy?
But now that we’re safely in June (obviously the least sassy of the sassy months), the weather is going be awesome!!! Just, I didn’t jinx that, right? Erik’s been telling me that jinxing something good just by saying it/hoping for it/celebrating it soooo should not be a thing. Because if it is a thing, we can’t even vocally appreciate something good when it happens. And how uncool is that?
Speaking of cool (yeah, you so saw what I did there), may I present to you my Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches? Consider them my ode, my kickoff, my fireworks-level woooohoooo to celebrate summer’s arrival! Quick, no one check the official seasons calendar or whatever it’s called to verify that today is the actual day when summer starts. *narrowed eyes*
Just last week, as you may recall, I shared my official gluten free vegan oat flour chocolate chip cookies with you. It took me over a year to summon up the courage to share that recipe. Why in Cookie Monster’s name would I need courage to release such a recipe, you may be asking yourself. Or perhaps this far down the post your eyes are already glossing over and you’re wondering who you can tag on IG to make these for you.
Whatever floats your boat. 😉
Wait a minute, what was I saying? Oh yes, courage, chocolate chip cookies, etc. etc. So the thing is, I have this unnatural sense of nervousness when I share a staple/basic recipe. Like, this is what all of Beaming Baker is going to be judged on—whether or not this basic cookie recipe is good. And if it’s not good, BB will be written off, in perpetuity. ???? ????
So those gluten free vegan oat flour chocolate chip cookies were not gonna go out until they were perfect. And until the recipe title was shortened. Which you may be surprised to find actually happened. Ahem.
But guess what? Turns out the recipe hardly needed tweaking from its original state. Goodness gracious. I was literally sweating bullets when I made that first retesting batch. Yes, I had actual bullets dripping of me. Okay… fine, I didn’t. But it doesn’t sound as serious if it’s not literal, amiright?
Anywho, once that first retest batch came out… wonderfully soft, perfectly chewy, seriously as satisfying as a chocolate chip cookie packed with guilt-inducing ingredients… I was like, YES. Ohhhhhhhh. YES!! And… what else can we make with these?
Answer: Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
Because when is ice-cream upgrading a recipe not a great idea? This, my bestie Natalie, would totes agree upon. Side note, she seriously literally made a unicorn nice cream recipe. DUDE. Okay fine, saying that unicorn nice cream was literally made is now a bit spooky. So scratch that. ???? ???? And cover it up with sprinkles and marshmallows!!! <– Spoiler alert for her nice cream!!
Meanwhile, you can totally make these gluten free vegan chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches with your favorite dairy-free ice cream, this dark chocolate nice cream, maybe this super creamy and delish coconut chocolate chip ice cream, or, of course, the sooooo non-literal unicorn nice cream. 🙂 Or this peanut butter nice cream. Alright, I’m getting a little too excited about this. ????????????
