KETO FLAVORS BACK IN STOCK JUNE 22nd!

Killer Whey! Ice Cream Sandwiches with Low Carb Keto Cream Cheese Cookies

Cookies are my favorite dessert. I don’t make them very often anymore because I tend to lack self-control when I have a batch of cookies in the house. I generally only make them when I can share. But with the warmer weather, I have been craving ice cream sandwiches. And there’s nothing better than homemade ice cream sandwiches, especially if you use Killer Whey! Protein or Keto Ice Cream with these Low Carb Keto Cream Cheese Cookies. The perfect healthy summer dessert!

These cookies are easy to make. They only have six ingredients - cream cheese, erythritol, an egg, almond flour, butter, salt, and vanilla. The flavor of the cookies is mild - think shortbread/sugar cookie. Which means that you can pair them with any Killer Whey! Protein or Keto ice cream flavor you like!

I recommend making a full batch of these cookies and then freezing any extras so that you can make ice cream sandwiches whenever you want. That’s what I did! There’s nothing wrong with having an endless stash of keto low carb cookies that you can eat or use for ice cream sandwiches.

These would also be fun to have at a summer barbeque. You could set up a “ice cream sandwich bar” with the keto low carb cookies and all the Killer Whey! Ice Cream flavors and let people make their own ice cream sandwiches. Or make a bunch of ice cream sandwiches in advance and keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to serve them to guests.

Another good thing about these cookies is that they are versatile, you can add in different flavors and get creative with them. For example, you could use almond or lemon extract in place of vanilla. You could even add lemon or orange zest. Any kind of chopped nuts would be delicious folded into the batter. Or sprinkle the cookies with cocoa powder or low sugar chocolate chips before baking. These cookies are great base recipe for a variety of low carb desserts.
