Peanut Butter Cookie & Cacao Nice Cream Sandwiches (Gluten free + Vegan)
People, this is not a drill - these are in fact gluten free, vegan nice cream sandwiches. And they are delicious. Clearly you need to go the extra step and roll them in sprinkles!
I'm in the midst of running a program for high school students right now and I'm exhausted. The students have so much energy and SO many questions. So many questions. They are lovely people, and I love my co-leaders, but I can tell I'm being a little too curt with my answers and my capacity for patience is ever diminishing.
One of the reasons I know I'm feeling kinda crap is that I'm eating kinda crap. I ate a bunch of junk food yesterday while we were out on a road trip and it left me with the sugar blues. I'm a huge fan of desserts and treats and fun snacks, so it's not that I want to cut them all out, I just want to plan ahead and make sure I'm eating the desserts and treats that I will enjoy and that will also be kind to my system.
These cookies do have sugar, but they also have almond meal and peanut butter, and the nice cream is made from bananas, almond milk, and cacao powder. So, while they're calorie dense, they also have some nutritious components. And, they're super yum.
Treat yourself. Make these cookies and nice cream!
