Earnest Eats American Ice Cream Sandwiches

Hi Friends –

Our friend Greg made us some delicious ice cream sandwich cookies with our American Blend Hot & Fit hot cereal over the labor day weekend.  I thought we’d share them with you – his recipe is below.  We found the superfood grains – quinoa, amaranth – and the additional goodies like cranberries, almonds and flax – gave the cookies a wonderful texture and extra health punch to an indulgent desert.  We hope you enjoy them!
