Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

These yummy ice cream sandwiches are both minty fresh & divinely chocolaty!
Summer is just flying!
It's not as hot as it usually is around these parts. We've had rain and more rain and cloudiness. The sun has been hiding out in fear.
The week has certainly been busy getting writing duties in order as well as packing and looking at flights or bus schedules. School is 21 days away and I'm beyond frazzled. However, great vegan news afoot- joined All About Vegan Food's Vegan Package Swap (where vegans can send their fave vegan stuff via care mail during around first of the month) and entered AfroVeganChick for next month's Vegan Mofo! Check link for details on how to share your vegan recipes for the great month of autumn leafing September! Deadline is August 28th!
Now onto tasty minty ice cream sandwiches!
A sweet peppermint treat that is certainly far more refreshing than a certain patty from York, cold chocolaty mint flavored banana ice cream oozes between two sandwiched brownies for an irresistibly tempting dessert that must be eaten with a spoon. Unless you're one of those who love licking chocolate coated palms and such....


Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches Ingredients and Preparation

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

2 frozen bananas
1/3 cup Enjoy Life Food's Mini Chips
2 mint leaves
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

Either blend these ingredients together and freeze or prepare just as sandwich halves are ready to be used.

Brownies (for sandwiches)

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/3 cup coconut oil (or applesauce)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
pinch of cinnamon
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
1/4 cup Enjoy Life Food's Mini Chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift dry ingredients together.
Add liquids.
Pour into muffin tin & bake for 23-25 minutes.
Let cool.
Slice in half and place on wax paper. Preferably on a plate. Freeze for 2-3 hours- until they are desired chill and softness.
Sit out ice cream until it softens & layer on chilled brownie halves.
Someone made a little oopsy (can you spot it?), but these turned out great taste wise!
