When Sweet Met Salty

FlapJacked Protein Ice Cream Sandwiches

It’s a cookie, it’s ice cream, actually it’s a delicious protein ice cream sandwich made with minimal ingredients, perfect for a Summer BBQ or any gathering you fancy.

People, these sandwiches are made with the perfect ratio of ice cream to cookie and chocolate…

Ooh, did I mention with a little Sprinkle action?

Yeah add a dash of those and it takes the recipe to the next level and lets you reminisce on these childhood favorites.

I admit this sandwich is still a hefty snack, however the macronutrient breakdown is much better than what you’ll see on a typical ice cream cookie sandwich.

A typical sandwich has almost 55 grams of carbs, and less than 5 grams of protein, and less than 1 gram of fiber. Don’t believe moi? Check the label below:

Toll House Cookie Sandwich

I am not demonizing these delicious sweets by any means, but I am merely pointing out that most of us may not be able to fit that into our healthy diets in a daily basis in order to achieve our goals.

Simple, minimal, and worth it is how I would describe this recipe. All you’ll need is:

  • 1 bag of FlapJacked chocolate chip cookie mix
  • 1 Pint Halo Top Ice cream
  • 1 bag of Lily’s chocolate chips

Please don’t start sippin’ on that HaterAide when I tell you the freezer is used for the dough.

I swear that this method ensures the dough doesn’t spread too far when it’s baking in the oven, and also intensifies the flavors.

These Yummy sandwich cookies are worth the wait and will not disappoint. Trust me, your tastebuds will fancy these more than you think 😉

So, crank out those ingredients and get baking!

  1. Melt the yogurt butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add in peanut butter and mix with a fork.
  2. Put the FlapJacked cookie mix into a large bowl, then add the 2 eggs and yogurt butter peanut butter mixture. Mix this until there are no clumps but do not over mix.
  3. Place the dough in the freezer for 1-3 hours. Yes, I know this sucks but it will help the cookies keep their shape when put in the oven.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 while the cookies are in the freezer
  5. Scoop the cookies into 2 Tbsp balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes.
  6. Let the cookies cool for at least 15 minutes.
  7. Once the cookies are cooled, grab the Halo Top and cut the pint with a large knife (no, I'm not kidding, trust me) about 1/2-3/4 inch thick and with a spatula or spoon, add the ice cream section in between the cookies. Then, return to the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  8. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds. Once the chocolate is meted and is drippy that's when you know it's at the perfect temp. To make melting the chocolate easier you can add peanut butter or oil s well.
  9. Take the sandwiches out of the freezer and dip them in the chocolate and sprinkle them with sprinkles (optional, but highly recommended to relieve your childhood). Repeat until you have 6 sandwiches and then store in the freezer for another 30 minutes.
  10. The wait is over so dig in!

That’s right! It will range depending on how much ice cream you want to put in the sandwiches as well and if you change the amount of Lily’s chocolate chips and if you add sprinkles. I have certain days where I want more ice cream than others so some of them have more Halo Top in them than others, but as anything you can always tailor it to what you prefer 🙂
