Pistachio & Chocolate Crusted Banana Ice Cream Patties
• 20g GG Fiber Sprinkles (or 2 Crispbreads, broken in to pieces)
• 1/4 cup shelled raw or roasted pistachios
• 2 tablespoons chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
• 4 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen overnight
• 1 tablespoon agave nectar or raw honey
• 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
Combine the GG Bran Sprinkles (or Crispbreads), pistachios, and chocolate in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and set aside. Rinse out the bowl of the food processor.
Break the frozen bananas into chunks and place them in the food processor. Add the agave and pulse or process for 1-2 minutes, until the bananas are fully broken down, creamy, and smooth. With the machine running, pour in the coconut oil through the top in a thin stream. Process until fully combined with the bananas. Place the entire bowl in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. With a cookie scoop or spoon, drop large spoonfuls of the banana ice cream onto the baking sheet. (Work quickly, as the banana ice cream will start to melt.) You should have about 12 scoops’ worth, give or take. Immediately transfer the baking sheet to the freezer for 1-2 hours.
When the banana ice cream patties are frozen, take the baking sheet out of the freezer and let sit at room temperature for 3-5 minutes. One at a time, dip each ice cream patty into the reserved fiber-pistachio-chocolate mixture, turning to coat both sides with the crumbs, then returning the coated patty to the baking sheet. When all patties have been coated, return the baking sheet to the freezer for at least 1-2 hours. Before serving, remove from the freezer and let sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
Yield – 12 ice cream patties
