Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches {gluten free & vegan}


Ice cream sandwiches are a classic summer treat. I used to enjoy them as a child and I would love nothing more than for my little one to enjoy them too. Unfortunately, your typical ice cream sandwiches are made with real vanilla ice cream, ruling them out for us. I have found a few dairy-free options at the grocery store, usually made with coconut milk ice cream. This is fine, but sometimes you just crave that "real" vanilla ice cream flavor. The other issue for us is that most of those also contain gluten. Not that I have to be able to enjoy them with the kids necessarily, but I don't mind the occasional treat as well! 

We recently had the opportunity to try the new Cashew Milk Frozen Desserts from our wonderful friends at So Delicious Dairy Free. The Creamy Cashew flavor is SO close to that of a homemade vanilla ice cream and super scrumptious. I just knew I wanted to make our own ice cream sandwiches from the moment I first tasted it. 

gluten-free, vegan, so delicious dairy free

Lemon Blueberry Muffins {top 8 & gluten free}

I'm loving testing out the NEW! Enjoy Life Foods boxed mixes. With simple directions and minimal ingredients to add, I can easily use them to create fun, unique recipes with no fuss.

This morning I decided to use the Muffin Mix to create some yummy, lemony, blueberry muffins. The lemon adds a nice bright flavor and the blueberries pop for a fresh summery flavor. I like to pop some fresh blueberries in the freezer overnight so they don't turn the batter blue when I use them when baking.

Cornbread Muffins {gluten free & vegan}

During the cooler months, one of our favorite meals is chili. I make a huge batch and cook it all day in the slow cooker. These Cornbread Muffins are the perfect side dish. Actually, they are perfect for a side with just about anything! I also happen to love them for breakfast, drizzled with a bit of maple syrup. Just thinking about it now...I'm going to have to make another batch!

Blueberry Cornbread Donuts {gluten free & vegan}

Well, I finally got bored with sitting around watching TV and decided to get to work on some long overdue recipe posts. Lately, as soon as I feel a little bit of baking/cooking motivation coming on, I take advantage, create a new recipe, and shoot photos. It's the actual posting of those recipes that's been neglected after that. But...I'm going to do my best to get caught up on a few of our favorites so that I can share them with you!

These Blueberry Cornbread Donuts were a fun experiment that turned out really unique and delicious. They can definitely be made in the more traditional muffin shape, but I thought the donuts were a fun and interesting change. Plus, my boys seem to eat things better when they're shaped like junk food rather than their healthier counterparts.

Grasshopper Pie {gluten free & vegan}

My apologies for being a little M.I.A. since around Christmastime, but thank you for hanging in here! What started as a fun winter/holiday break quickly turned into a sickness-filled couple of weeks for our little family. Shortly after the new year began, we found out that we are expecting! Our family of four will be a family of five in early September and we are SO excited!

I have felt pretty awful for the most part these past few months, but I am thrilled to say that I am (finally) regaining my energy and not feeling sick as often. Just in time for spring - thank goodness!
