Tahini Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

Jump to Recipe·Print Recipe

Chewy grain-free tahini chocolate chip cookies smushed around vegan vanilla ice cream makes for the yummiest sweet summer sandwich!

I haven’t held a sandwich that isn’t a cookie sandwich in years, and honestly I feel really good about this stage of my sandwich-eating life. The chewy tahini cookie is perfectly salty-sweet, the mini chips are in abundant supply, the ice cream is melty in a gotta-shove-it-in-your-face-fast sorta way…I just don’t see how bread sandwiches can possibly compete, do you?

How To Make The Grain-Free Tahini Cookies

These cookies are just as delish un-sandwiched as they are soaked with slightly melty vanilla ice cream. They are chewy and buttery and just a little crisp around the edges, the ultimate cookie texture in my opinion. This recipe is vegan and grain-free, made with:

  • Flax egg. Or a regular egg if you are not vegan.
  • Tahini. Or any nut or seed butter that you love, just thin it out with a bit of coconut oil to match the runny texture of tahini for optimal cookie texture.
  • Coconut oil. You can use all tahini, but they won’t spread as well.
  • Almond milk. Or milk of choice.
  • Coconut sugar. Brown sugar would work too, I haven’t tested with a liquid sweetener.
  • Vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt.
  • Cassava flour. The secret to making them grain-free, but if you don’t care about the grain-free part feel free to use all purpose flour instead.
  • Chocolate chips. Preferably mini. And preferably more than called for.

Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sandwiching

You can use any kind or flavor of ice cream you love, I stuck with simple vanilla but chocolate would be a delicious choice to pair with tahini too. Either scoop and sandwich or slice the carton and cookie cutter into perfect rounds, depending on how messy/perfect you want your sandwiches to be. Key key fact: make sure the cookies are COMPLETELY cool (or even chilled) before the ice cream sandwiching step.
