I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

Nothing says summer time like ice cream treats. I’ll be honest, I haven’t had an ice cream sandwich since my Celiac diagnoses. To my knowledge, there aren’t any gluten free ice cream sandwich brands. That’s the trick to gluten free- you gotta learn to make a lot of things yourself and usually you can come up something that’s just as good- or in this case, even better!

New Perfectly Free Pints

Perfectly Free PintsI love perfectly free frozen bites. The creamy coconut ice cream center and the delicious outsides are amazing. I was so excited when they came out with pints. They come in three flavors- fudge stripe, caramel cafe, and strawberry sundae. All are delicious, but for this gluten free ice cream sandwich, I chose to use the fudge swirl and caramel cafe. The fudge swirl is a bit more of a coconut ice cream flavor, whereas the caramel cafe has this delicious coffee taste with that caramel swirl.

A few things that I love about Perfectly Free:

  • Non-Gmo
  • Vegan Friendly
  • Taste Ridiculously Good!

The Perfect Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwich

When most people make a DIY Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwich, they usually use cookies, which of course are good, but if memory serves me correctly, an ice cream sandwich has that cakey cookie outside. When I wanted to remake it, I wanted to recreate that same cakey cookie. This gluten free ice cream sandwich has that perfect texture that will remind you of childhood summers, eating ice cream sandwiches by the pool.

Recipe Notes

This is a really simple recipe. I took my basic gluten free brownie recipe and spread it thinly on a baking sheet. It makes the perfect outside for these gluten free ice cream sandwiches.

The Cakey Cookie Brownie

  • The trick is to not bake it too long. If you do you end up with brownie “chips.” They taste good but don’t make good gluten free ice cream sandwiches.

Gluten Free Flour

  • For this particular recipe, I have tried several different gluten free flour blends and they all work well. GF Jules is my go to, but I’ve also used Trader Joes and King Arthur and they both work well.

Dairy Free

  • I have used both vegetable oil and coconut oil for these, both work well.

Off Set Spatula

  • This works best for spreading the batter into an even, thin layer, but in a pinch, a spatula can work.

I hope you love this gluten free ice cream sandwich and be sure to check out Perfectly Free. You can see if they are available in your area by checking out their location finder. If they aren’t available, be sure to ask your local grocery store to carry them!

Happy Gluten Free Eating!

    You are so right about the cakey sandwich rather than a cookie. I remember the cake sticking to my fingers and having to scrape it off! Brownie is the perfect solution.

    oo, yum! I love a good ice cream sandwich! I don’t THINK I have a gluten issue, but with my Crohn’s Disease, i can’t imagine putting more gluten free items into my diet hurting the effort to get better. Thanks for sharing!

    This reminds me of a video I saw about how ice-cream sandwiches are made (in a factory) – how cool that yours looks just as awesome and almost machine-made (I totally mean it as a compliment though)! And yeah, I always thought that ice-cream sandwiches were made with cookies too! I stand corrected now!

      They do contain eggs, but you can use an egg substitute to make them! Flax eggs should work well in this.
