// Ingredients

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups coconut sugar
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract paste
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 2 1/4 cups wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 tsp aluminium free baking soda
  • 2 cups Loving Earth dark chocolate chopped
  • Himalayan sea salt, ground

Coconut Ice-cream

  • 2 cans chilled full-fat Thai coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract paste
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
// Method
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mix all ingredients but salt. Knead with clean hands.
  3. Using an ice-cream scoop form balls and squash onto a lined baking trays. Cook in the oven for 12 to 14 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, and sprinkle with ground sea salt.
  5. To make, the ice-cream, place the coconut milk, coconut sugar and vanilla in a blender. Blend until combined.
  6. Freeze using a prepared ice-cream machine. I have a Kitchen Aid ice-cream maker. You can serve immediately for a soft serve texture or place in a cake tin and freeze for a firmer texture.
    To make the cookie sandwiches, use firm ice-cream to form cookie sandwiches, scoop ice-cream and squash onto the cookies, followed by another cookie. Place in the freezer for 10 mins to firm up.
