Week of Love: Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches

Another kid-friendly recipe for a delicious Valentines Treat!

The ice cream is quick (no pre-cooking required) and contains only two ingredients. The cookies contain only six ingredients and there is a paleo version below if necessary. You probably have all of these ingredients in your pantry!

If you don't have an ice cream machine, you can make your own banana ice cream in you blender. And use that instead!

Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter (I used lightly salted Adams Crunchy Peanut Butter - no sugar added)
2 T flaxseeds
1/2 cup heaping oats (GF certified if sensitive)*
1/4 cup nondairy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Grind flaxseeds in coffee grinder. Add to nondairy milk and vanilla extract. Let sit five minutes.
3. Stir in remaining ingredients.
4. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls on a baking sheet or stoneware pan. Use a fork to squish the cookies down a little.
5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from pan and let cool.

*For a paleo version, use shredded coconut instead of oats. And use coconut sugar instead of cane sugar.

If there is not time to make the ice cream below (although it's fairly quick if you have an ice cream machine maker), use a coconut milk strawberry ice cream or chocolate instead (So Delicious and Luna &Larry make great flavors). Or make your own banana ice cream in you blender.

Quick Jelly/Jam Ice Cream
2 cups nondairy milk (use a can of coconut milk for 1.5 cups of the milk for creamier, more ice cream like texture)
1 cup jam or jelly of choice (I used a multi-berry a family member made)

1. Add ingredients to an ice cream machine and use according to instructions.

When cookies have cooled, assemble the sandwiches and enjoy!
