Quick and easy ice cream sandwiches that you don’t even have to feel guilty about eating! The perfect treat for a hot summer day!
Happy Wednesday! Okay, just kidding. I know Wednesday’s are anything but exciting. Unless it’s the week after Memorial day. Which means we’re only a few days away from another weekend! And until Friday comes around, i’ve got cookie ice cream sandwiches to tide you over!
I shouldn’t have to do a lot of convincing that topping a chocolate chip cookie with a big scoop of your favorite ice cream and then smashing it with another chocolate chip cookie is a good idea. Especially because i’m about to tell you about a chocolate chip cookie that’s actually good for you!
Yup. You read that right. And I lied. I’m actually going to tell you about 3 cookies that are good for you!
Green Plate Foods is the company that makes these delicious zucchini chocolate chip cookies that are good for you. The best part: they don’t taste like veggies! Don’t get me wrong, I love vegetables but it’s not a flavor I want to find in my cookie. These guys are doing it right. These chocolate chip cookies are soft + chewy. They are the perfect base for cookie ice cream sandwiches.
Green Plate offers other cookie choices as well for those of you that don’t like chocolate (gasp!). In addition to the zucchini CC cookies, they offer oatmeal raisins, and almond butter cookies.
The oatmeal raisin cookies are made with apple sauce. I love how it reduces both the amount of sugar + oil that’s in the cookie that way. The almond butter cookies are made with sweet potato puree and almond butter. They’re amazingly chewy + gluten free!
Anees and I were sent boxes of cookies to sample earlier this month and they were gone in about 3 days. I’m absolutely not joking. We’re both known to raid the pantry for something sweet after dinner + midnight munching… and Green Plate’s snacks are the perfect healthy options to munch on while watching TV at night.
In addition to the cookies, we received these delicious fruit snacks called Nubblers. They come in 3 different flavors. Cherry Chocolate, Apricot Cranberry, and Blueberry Pistachio. These snacks are perfect for everyone and are completely wholesome and have no added sugars! Although all 3 flavors are delicious, I liked the blueberry pistachio the best. And the hubby favors the cherry chocolate, for reasons that are too obvious to admit. And now for the best part –
