Remember that time I decided to make Bloody Mary’s and garnish with a Grilled Cheese? Oh, you don’t? No, worries! I am here to remind you over and over. It was my “think outside the box” grand idea, that I am sure has already been claimed.
So, I will take another chance on some creative food therapy. Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches. I know. You are thinking, “Mind Blown!”
It always starts with three ripe bananas. Always. I look over at these three lonely, spotted amigos on my kitchen counter and I think, “I cannot let you go to waste. I will not let you go to waste.” And, then begins the baking.
I contemplated Banana Bread. You know the safe route. But, honestly, my sister-in-law Amie makes the best and has set the standards so high every time I make my own, it never compares. And, I sit in the kitchen eating my dish daydreaming that it is hers.
Anyways, I found This Recipe and thought, why not? I changed it up slightly and then had the idea to make Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Let me tell you… this does not disappoint! So, ripen those bananas and scoop out some ice cream, we have dessert to make ya’ll!
CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD ICE CREAM SANDWICH:
- 3 Ripe Bananas
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp of Baking Soda
- Pinch of Sea Salt
- 1 1/2 Cup of Chocolate Chips
- Vanilla Ice Cream
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add eggs, vanilla and bananas. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt, until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Spoon onto a baking sheet. The batter will be wet. Bake for 12 minutes, until the edges begin to turn a light golden brown. Remove and let cool.
For ice cream sandwiches, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to bread and top. Wrap in wax paper and freeze before serving.
