Happy July!! Now that we’re safely nestled into July (obviously the least sassy of sassy months), the weather is going to be awesome!! And even if it isn’t, we might just be making a batch of vegan ice cream sandwiches to make everything all better. 🙂

May I present to you my favorite 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*

Okay, fine, summer started ages ago… but it didn’t really start until we got to make our very own homemade gluten free ice cream sandwiches, amiright? 😉

Let’s make this!

How to Make Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches with Chocolate Chip Cookies!


First things first, bake a batch of these oat flour chocolate chip cookies (gf+v). If you’re looking for other varieties of GFV cookies to make, read on below. 🙂 Cool cookies completely. 

Line & Lay

Grab your favorite large baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Lay your completely cooled cookies face-down on the cookies sheet, with the flat side up.


Grab your favorite vegan ice cream—whether it be store-bought or homemade, like my favorite Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream—and scoop & drop a ball of ice cream down onto a flat cookie. Smooth the ice cream into a flat layer and place another cookie onto it, face up. Smoosh it together to make your very own vegan ice cream sandwiches! Then, repeat for all sandos.

Freeze & Enjoy

Freeze until firm, then enjoy the best vegan ice cream sandwiches ever!

2 Delicious Components to Perfect Gluten Free Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches

Part 1: Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can completely customize your homemade vegan ice cream sandwiches by switching up the kind of gluten free cookie that you use (and with the vegan ice cream options below). Here are my faves:

  • Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies – this is the recipe for the GF chocolate chip cookies you see in the photos. They’re soft-baked and utterly delicious.
  • Crispy Thin Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies – if you prefer crunchy, crispy vegan chocolate chip cookies, try using these cookies as the “bread” part of the ice cream sandwiches. These are great for folks who love a crispy crunch to balance out the creamy richness of ice cream.
  • The BEST GF Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – yes to oats! If you love oatmeal cookies, you’ve got to try these chewy, best-ever gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in your ice cream sandwiches. Perfect spice, amazing flavor.
  • Vegan Tahini Cookies – for those of you who want a unique twist on the traditional vegan ice cream sandwich. Nutty with crispy sesame seeds… need I say more? 😉
  • Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies – my favorite soft ‘n chewy double chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Try these for a quadruple chocolate whammy in your gluten free ice cream sandwiches!

Part 2: Rich ‘n Creamy Vegan Ice Cream

For the vegan ice cream filling, you can use one of two ingredients:

1. Store-bought Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream

Try your favorite store-bought dairy-free vegan vanilla ice cream, or…

2. Homemade Vegan Ice Cream

You can make one of the following homemade vegan ice cream recipes:

Storing Your Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

Store your gluten free ice cream sandwiches in a freezer-friendly container for up to 2 weeks. I love eating these ice cream sandwiches the first 2 days. 😉

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Optional Topping

See more homemade ice cream + gluten free vegan cookie option in the post + in Notes.


  1. The night before, prepare homemade vegan vanilla ice cream or otherwise have vegan ice cream on hand. More homemade ice cream options in post + Notes.
  2. Make a batch of Gluten Free Vegan Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies. More gluten free vegan cookie options listed in the post + Notes. Cool completely.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Place this sheet, lying flat, in the freezer. You will need it later.
  4. Lay a sheet of parchment or wax paper on a clean, flat surface. Lay half of the batch of cookies (10-12, depending on how many you made) facedown (flat side up) on the prepared surface, evenly spaced apart.
  5. In the next step, you’ll have to work quickly in a cool environment to prevent the ice cream centers from melting all over the place. 😉
  6. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop about 2 tablespoons ice cream and drop onto 1 cookie. Using a rubber spatula, smooth and flatten ice cream into a flat, even layer. Place a cookie face-up on top of the ice cream layer. Press down to create an ice cream sandwich. Optionally, sprinkle and press 1 teaspoon of mini chocolate chips onto the sides of the sandwich, where the ice cream peeks out.
  7. Immediately place ice cream sandwich into the freezer, onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat for all ice cream sandwiches.
  8. Chill until ice cream is firm or enjoy immediately if sandwiches aren’t too melty. Storing instructions below.

  1. Hi Demeter,
    I’m wanting to make these this afternoon but I don’t have any flax. Could I use 2 eggs in place of the flax egg? Thank you!

      1. Omg the cookies were awesome! So fluffy and yummy! I ate half of them while using the other half for ice cream sandwiches! Thank you so much for such a great cookie recipe!

  2. I have summer and I am holding it hostage until you send me 2 dozen of these cookie-wiches. And I mean 2 dozen entire sandwiches so 4 dozen actual cookies. And extra ice cream on the side just in case I run out because you know how I get around ice cream (CRAZY.). And considering the whole year long cookie perfecting process go ahead and send me an extra batch of the cookies too! Okay I’ll just come to you. But seriously, I cannot possibly think of a better way to celebrate those classic cookies than by shoving ice cream in between their fluffy chip-filled wondrousness! I totally know what you mean about the staple recipes though–flavors and variations are easy but the OG feels like so much pressure. But I’m pretty sure you nailed it because just look at them. And THANK YOU for the sweet shoutout my dear, put a big (dorky) smile on my face! Happy weekend..

    1. Haha. You know what, I kind of suspected you held the keys to summer!! After all, you ARE the ice cream queen! 😉 Extra ice cream: check! Extra cookies: check! 😉 The OG totally gets so much pressure!! Big hugs to you. <3 <3

  3. You must be narrowing your eyes at me, because I have a VERY strict calendar.. and by strict I mean, like type A crazy precise. So, just because you asked and I’m super nice and I love to be informative, I’m going to let you in on a no-so-secret, secret my calendar holds. The official start of summer is Wednesday June 21st. At approximately 12:24 Eastern Daylight Time. 🙂 I’m a huge dork. I know. But I love these weird factual things. They make me feel whole. hahaha. Anyways, regardless of what actual season it is, it is ALWAYS the season for these ice cream sandos!!!! I mean, hello, I’d eat these even if it was May and the weather was sassy and it was snowing outside. 😉 These are perfection, doll! Pinned of course! Love ya, my lil muffin. And I miss you SO SO SOSOSOSOSOSOSOSO much!!!! XOXOXO

    1. LOL. Of course, I should have totally asked you! But then again, you know I like to just ignore these things… Haha. Goodness, summer is pretty far off! And since we just about skipped spring, I guess I’ll just keep making ice cream until I can lure into arriving more quickly. 😉 Good for you and your facts! You do YOU. . Love ya my CheyBae! <3 <3 I miss you MORE!!!!

  4. Oh gosh, I’m glad I’m not the only one that get a little nervous publishing recipes, even though we know they’re good! 😉 Wow, Demeter, these ice cream sandwiches are the PERFECT summer treat! Paired with your delicious cookies, and extra mini chocolate chips, these look absolutely delicious! 😀 Hope you’re having an awesome week! xo

    1. Hehe. It’s that Type A anxiety that always gets us! Lol. That’s why we’re friends. . Thanks so much Marsha! Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead! xo
