Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches :: Gluten, Grain, and Dairy-Free

Yield: 4 sandwiches
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 14 minutes

These chocolate banana ice cream sandwiches are the perfect summer treats. Despite the “ice cream” being only bananas, the texture is very reminiscent of real dairy-based ice cream. The soft, nutty chocolate cookies pair perfectly with the creamy banana “ice cream.”



  1. Before you start the recipe, make sure that you peel and slice the bananas and freeze them for 1 ½ to 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4).
  3. Combine all the ingredients, except the bananas in a bowl, mixer or food processor.
  4. Shape dough hunks into balls and flatten and form into large circles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for about 6 to 9 minutes. Cookies will be firm. Set aside to cool.
  6. Once the cookies have cooled, start the banana ice cream.
  7. Take frozen bananas and put them in a food processor. Run the processor until the bananas are fully blended into a creamy, ice cream-like texture. You may have to stop the processor a few times and scrape the sides to incorporate all the bananas.
  8. To form the ice cream sandwiches, take one cookie and top the flat side with desired amount of banana ice cream, then top it with another cookie.
  9. If the banana ice cream is too creamy to hold up on its own, put it in the freezer for about 20 to 45 minutes until it’s hard enough to hold, but soft enough to work with.
  10. Store ice cream sandwiches in the freezer.

Want to Learn How to Make Your Own Ice Cream Perfection At Home?

I’ve got you covered in my best-selling eBook, The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats: Delicious and Easy Dairy-Free Recipes, Plus Tips and Tricks for Homemade Ice Cream Perfection!

When the weather gets warm, nothing is more delicious than a bowl of cold ice cream or a delicious frozen treat. But, when you’re on a restricted diet, finding treats that are suitable for your needs can be tricky. Plus, what happens when you want to make ice cream, but don’t own an ice cream maker? Can you still make tasty treats without all the special equipment?

Yes! You can!

That is why I created The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook! I, myself, am on a restricted diet for health reasons and when the weather starts warming up over 65 F, I start to get cranky. ? I am definitely a cool weather gal and one way to keep me sane and satisfied during the height of summer is knowing that I can make something delicious, at home, using healthy ingredients that fit my lifestyle.

All of the recipes in this book are dairy, grain, and gluten-free. They can easily be modified for the autoimmune protocol as well, making them extra special for those on super restricted diets.

In The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook, You Will Learn:

  • Why making your own ice cream and frozen treats at home is better than buying them at the store (even the organic ones!).
  • Tips and tricks for homemade ice cream success.
  • How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker (it’s easier than you think!).
  • Delicious dairy-free recipes the whole family will love (recipes are also gluten and free and can easily be adapted for the autoimmune protocol as well).
  • Extensive resource suggestions for real food, wellness, and beyond.

Don’t let another summer or special occasion pass you by. No longer will you have to watch your friends and family indulge on their favorite frozen treats while you sit on the sidelines due to your dietary restrictions.

Now you can enjoy creamy, delicious, and allergen-friendly frozen treats once again with The Splendid Scoop.
