Chunky Monkey Nice Cream Sandwiches

These nice cream sandwiches will CRUSH those Ben N Jerry's cravings.

Ingredients

  • For the banana bread
  • 4 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, melted
  • For the nice cream
  • 6 bananas, frozen
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Steps

  1. For the banana bread: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 by 13-inch pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Mix in eggs, honey and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold together until just combined. Fold in coconut.
  4. Spoon batter into the prepared pan and bake 10 to 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Place a smaller pan on top and allow to cool completely in the pan.
  5. For the nice cream: In the bowl of a food processor, blitz the bananas and maple syrup until thick and creamy, then stir in the walnuts. Line an 8 by 8-inch pan with plastic wrap and pour banana mixture into the bottom. Place in the freezer until solid.
  6. When ready to assemble: Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut rounds from both the banana bread and nice cream, then sandwich a round of nice cream between two banana bread slices. Dip each sandwich in the melted dark chocolate and serve immediately.
