Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches – Gluten, Grain and Lactose Free

April always begins with Will’s birthday.  Of course, I wanted to make special desert. Will has multiple dietary restrictions so it can be complicated to find just the right treat. But this year I came up with a simple idea that yielded a result that belies the effort involved. I made gluten free, grain free, lactose free brownie ice cream sandwiches.

They were simple to make, festive and more importantly delicious.

Here are the steps I followed if you want to make your own easy gluten free, grain free, lactose free brownie ice cream sandwiches.

  • Make some gluten free, grain free brownies.  I chose the brownie recipe from Diane SanFilippo’s book Practical Paleo 2nd edition.  I like this recipe because it is quick, easy and also tapioca free.  For this project, I left out the coffee and bacon.
  • Bake the brownies in a larger pan than called for.  I chose a 9×13 pan for a thinner brownie.
  • Add something festive like sprinkles, mini chocolate chips or sea salt.

  • Let the brownies cool and cut in half.  Leave one half in the pan and set the other half aside.
  • Add a layer of softened ice cream.  I used Beckon’s lactose free chocolate chip.   Put the pan in the freezer until firm.
  • Add another layer of softened ice cream.  I used Beckon’s lactose free chocolate.  Top with the set aside brownie half and freeze for several hours.

After a few hours in the freezer we cut into squares and served.  It felt like just the right amount of special for a birthday dessert.
