peach ice cream sandwich

No matter how healthy you eat, you might need something a little sweet to curb those cravings (& treat yo self).

I’ve got you covered.

I’m definitely one of those people who focus on the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time I eat healthy meals and 20% of the time I indulge in sweets, or my all time fav. extra toasty Cheez-Its!

This weekend we had gorgeous weather in NH and I was craving something sweet but cold. (in comes ice cream). I landed on ice cream sandwiches but still wanted something a bit lighter than the sweet thickness of ice cream so I switched it up to frozen yogurt sandwiches. These ones are absolutely delicious, take no time to make, & will definitely curb your sweet tooth. (to make them even healthier you can substitute the vanilla frozen yogurt for plain frozen yogurt). If you plan to make these Tag #blissfullytasty so I can see all of the delicious recreated eats.

  • 2/3 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc.)
  • 1/3 cup finely ground cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees & line 2 baking sheets w/ parchment paper.

  7. With damp hands (this is key!!) squeeze together 1 tbsp. of batter and roll into a ball.
  8. Place on baking sheet, gently flatten all balls to be about a 3-inch round.
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are golden brown on edges.
  10. Let cool on pan for 2-3 minutes and then transfer to cooling rack.
  11. Combine yogurt and peaches in medium bowl until incorporated (do this quickly so the yogurt doesn’t soften). Add a dollop of frozen yogurt mixture to one flat side of cookie, and flatten with second cookie forming a sandwich.

Live Blissfully!
