Chocolate & Nut Butter Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches


With Labor Day fast approaching, there’s still time to enjoy a cool summer treat. How about these easy-to-make dairy-free ice cream sandwiches…

For those of you here in the States, hopefully the weather’s still good and you’re out and about enjoying the warm rays and maybe taking a cool dip in the pool.

Before you sign off to the colder temps, how about a fun treat to enjoy? Who doesn’t love biting into an ice cream sandwich!

This cool confection is filled with chocolate and nut butter flavored ice cream (tastes like chocolate-peanut butter ice cream!) and sandwiched between two light, cake-like layers of chocolatey goodness.

And maybe best of all, you can feel good about serving this treat because it’s made with simple, wholesome, gluten-free ingredients. 

This recipe is two steps, but both are really simple.

First you’ll make the non-dairy ice cream using coconut milk and nut butter and stick it in the freezer (see the link to my ice cream recipe below).

Next you’ll bake up the chocolate wafers for the sandwiches using an inexpensive “whoopie pie pan.”

(I used a Wilton Nonstick Whoopie Pie Pan I ordered on Amazon ($7) and it’s perfect for fun recipes like this!)

I rolled some of the ice cream sandwiches in mini chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand) which added a nice little crunch to the cool ice cream.

Paleo Newbie Chocolate Non-Dairy Ice Cream Sandwiches – see the paleo and gluten free recipe.

If rolling these in mini chocolate chips is a bit much chocolate for you, just skip that step. Make them, wrap them up, and keep them chilled in the freezer until you’re ready to serve.

I wish I could give you a bite, but my hubby took care of them about a week ago, so you’re just gonna have to make them yourself to find out how delicious they are!

Surprise the kids with this recipe! You know you will be the coolest mom on the block. Just be sure you make enough for all the kids who are going to show up. 🙂

  3. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl: coconut flour, cacao powder, baking soda, salt
  4. Whisk eggs in another small bowl and add the honey, vanilla and the melted coconut oil
  5. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl; stir well
  6. Generously grease each whoopie pie well with some coconut oil
  7. Spoon batter into whoopie pie wells – fill only about half way !
  8. Bake at 350º F about 7-8 minutes (Oven temperatures and cooking times may vary)
  9. Remove wafers from oven and allow to cool
  10. Scoop ice cream onto each bottom layer, gently spread to even out, and place a second wafer on top.
  11. Optional: Scatter dark chocolate mini-chips on a plate and roll the edge of the ice cream sandwich over them to pick up some of the chips
  12. Wrap finished ice cream sandwiches in cellophane, and place in freezer until ready to serve.
