Ice Cream Sandwiches!!!

So it was the greatest wish of the recent birthday girl to have ice cream sandwiches to beat the hell out of the summer heat. No cake on her birthday you say. Well take a look at these babies before you get your shorts all in twist.

Macadamia Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Bliss Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge Coconut Ice Cream

1 cup Earth Balance
1 cup Agave nectar
1 cup brown rice syrup
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups whole wheat white flour
1/4 cup arrowroot
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup macadamia nuts chopped
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 333F
Whisk the poop out of that EB and syrup until its is light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Sift the flour-y ingredients into the wet. Add coconut, macadamias, and chocolate chips. Mix to combine. Scoop onto a baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for about 2o minutes until golden brown. Depending on the size of your cookie you may need to adjust the baking times.

Once completely cooled stick them in the fridge. Get your ice cream pint and a serrated knife. Slice into 6 equal sized rounds. Remove the carton scraps and make yourself a ridiculous sandwich. Enjoy!

We also ate pizza with the newest Daiya Vegan Cheese. It was less than extraordinary. More on that in the next post.
