As many of you know I recently entered the Hot Raw Chef contest. Unfortunately, I did not win, but thank you to those of you that supported me and voted!

I would like to share the recipe with you as well as the video of me preparing the recipe. These are great little summer treats made from all raw ingredients! You can prepare these in 5 minutes! I hope you enjoy!

I Heart Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches
Yields 3 Sandwiches

Ingredients:

Cookies

  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/8 cup liquid sweetener such as maple syrup or agave

Filling

  • 1 large frozen banana, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Add the pecans to a food processor. Process until the pecans turn into a medium grind meal/flour. Add the cacao powder, coconut oil, and raw agave nectar. Process again until all the ingredients are well combined and the mixture starts to stick together.

Form mixture into balls and flatten with your hands to prepare them for the cookie cutter. Place on a tray or plate covered with parchment paper. Gently press a heart-shaped cookie cutter into the dough and use a knife to remove the excess dough from the edges of the cookie cutter. You will have enough dough to make 6 small heart-shaped cookies.

To make the filling, combine the bananas, almond extract, and cinnamon in a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend the mixture until the consistency of ice cream is reached. Using a small spoon, scoop the ice cream on to 3 of the cookies. Now take the remaining cookies, and gently place them on top of the ice cream to make a sandwich. You may need to clean up the edges a bit. For a gooey sandwich, eat right away or set them in the freezer for 30 minutes for a firmer sandwich. Enjoy!
