Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookie Ice Cream

I’m going to take a break from my obsessive whining about Baby #2 not here yet, and focus on one of my most precious chickpeas.

Yesterday Baby Boo officially turned TWO, and she technically isn’t a baby anymore.

(Although I have no problem wrapping her up in a blanket and cuddling her in my arms…)

It’s hard to believe that two years came and went so fast, and now I am the mama of a sassy and sweet toddler. One that has no problem telling me no, slapping me in public, wearing tutu’s 24/7, playing with mama’s makeup, singing Justin Bieber and pointing out his picture wherever it is…

Yes my friends, she is no longer my little baby.

She now demands chocolate milk with every meal and is easily the boss in our tiny little family.

(I’m this close to teaching her how to ask Daddy for money…)

Unfortunately for the hubby’s sake, she’s 100% Diva and takes a lot after  her mama. Everything is 10 times more dramatic than it should be and she can cry at the drop of a penny.On top of everything else, she is addicted to sweets.

I will take the blame for that because half the time I’ve got my face shoved into some sort of chocolate particle…And if you open my pantry, i’ve got enough dark chocolate bars to feed Canada.

But I’m not complaining one bit. I look forward to Mommy-Daughter dates when we can spend daddy’s money and check out different sweet treats around the city. (Although…Technically we do that now.)

Which is why I knew that on Boo’s birthday she wouldn’t consider a special ‘treat’ a basket full of fries, but more like a big bowl of ice cream. Of coarse alongside of a day spent full of using daddy’s money!

That’s what birthday’s are all about!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookie Ice Cream

Ingredients:

(For the Ice Cream)

5-6 frozen bananas processed and blended into ‘ice cream’ w/ 1 tsp. vanilla

OR

1 pint vanilla non dairy ice cream (we prefer coconut)

(For the cookie mixutre)

1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour/spelt flour/GF flour/vanilla protein powder for a protein version

1/2 oats

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

dash of nutmeg

dash of salt

1/4 c. peanut butter

1/4 c. 100% maple syrup

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 c. dark chocolate chopped/chocolate chips

Directions:

1. To make the cookies, beat nut butter, vanilla, and syrup together until combined with a mixer. Add flour, oats, spices until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. The mixture will be a little crumbly:

2. In the mixer bowl add your ice cream:

3. Mix together until cookies are incorporated throughout ice cream.

4. Eat right then, or place in freezer safe storage and save for later!

This dessert is almost as sweet as my precious two year old!

Unless you take into consideration that she’s 100% diva like her mama…

And in that case, it’s not always a sweet bowl of ice cream! 🙂

I love you Baby Boo! You keep me on my toes, make me smile and laugh every day, and I’ve never loved anything so much as much as I Love You!

I’ll Love you Forever Boo!

XOXOXO-

Mommy
