Ice cream, especially when sandwiched between some freshly baked cookies, is my downfall. I’ve spent more time than I’d like to admit checking twitter to see if the Cool Haus truck was around. In order to satisfy my sweet tooth, I went looking for a healthier alternative to the ice cream sandwich and discovered these graham sandwiches. They take little time to prepare, are delicious, not horrible for you, and satisfy your cravings for sweets. I think most kids would like these as well.
What You Need:
2 Ripe Bananas
2 Generous Tablespoons of Peanut Butter
8-10 Graham Crackers
Foil/freeze safe container
- Simply take two bananas and mash them together with 2 generous tablespoons of your choice peanut butter (I used Jif’s low Sodium Creamy Natural PB, but you can use crunchy, creamy, or might even try an almond butter or Nutella as those might work well too although, I haven’t tested).
- Once you have this mixture mashed into a creamy consistency, take your choice of graham crackers (I used Honey Maid’s low fat honey grahams), and split them in half until you have approximately 8 sets.
- Then simply spoon the mixture onto one side of the graham cracker sets and sandwich the mixture. If you have extra banana-PB mash simply add more sandwiches.
- Once you have your sandwiches made, place them freeze safe container or wrap in foil and place them in the freezer. They will be ready to devour the next day, as they need to freeze for a minimum of 6 hours.
YUM! These taste just as delightful as an ice cream sandwich with less guilt! Enjoy!
