Collagen Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich Recipe

Recipe makes 3 big ice cream cookie sandwiches or 6 small ones.

Ingredients:

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp dairy-free butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80g oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 45g chocolate chunks

Whipped ’Ice Cream’ Ingredients:

  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 720ml coconut milk (refrigerated)
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Mix the butter and sugar in a mixer until smooth.
  • Add the remaining wet ingredients for the cookie to the mixer and mix until well combined.
  • Add the remaining dry ingredients for the cookies (besides the chocolate chunks) to the mixer and mix until combined.
  • Fold the chocolate chunks into the mixture.
  • Scoop the mixture into circle shapes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper (go for either 6 large scoops or 12 small scoops).
  • Bake the cookies for 15 minutes.
  • While the cookies are baking, begin to make the whipped ice cream (or feel free to use your own.)
  • Place the frozen bananas and refrigerated coconut milk in a blender. Since it’s served immediately, use ½ a banana and 60ml of coconut milk per person. Tip: When measuring the coconut milk, use the hardened milk only.
  • Add the vanilla and collagen powder and continue to blend until smooth (do not over mix).
  • When the cookies are cool, fill the inside of two cookies with the whipped ‘ice cream’.
  • Serve and enjoy immediately. Any remaining whipped ‘ice cream’ can be frozen; simply remove from the freezer for 15 minutes before enjoying again.
