Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches
This recipe is SUPER easy and surprisingly healthy! It does take a little prep work, but once you’ve got that done, you’ve pretty much got a fancy-pants dessert ready to go for surprise guests. Honestly, though, if people just showed up at my house, I’d be too ticked off at them to feed them. Maybe that’s why we live in the country LOL!
First, you want to make your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. Here’s my fave, it’s easy and fool proof! I haven’t tried this with a flour less peanut butter cookie recipe, I don’t know how it’d work. If you try it, let me know! Once your cookies are made and cool, eat some. Cuz they’re awesome. Then set some aside for this recipe.
Slice 3-4 really ripe bananas and lay the slices on a cookie sheet. Stick the sheet into the freezer for about an hour. You want the bananas mostly frozen but not rock hard. It’s important to use really ripe (or over ripe!) bananas for this, otherwise it won’t be as good!
If they get too hard, just leave them out for a few minutes.
Throw the banana chunks into your food processor and whiz them up. They’ll magically turn to ice cream!
When you have your banana ice cream, spread a scoop onto the flat side of a peanut butter cookie, and then moosh another one on top and press until the banana ice cream reaches the sides. If you want to be fancy, you can roll it in sprinkles or peanuts or cookie crumbs now. Repeat until you run out of ice cream. 3-4 bananas should give you 4 sandwiches.
Place the sandwiches on a cookie sheet and put the sheet into the freezer for about 30 minutes.
