Non Ice Cream Sandwiches

You know what makes everyone happy? Ice cream sandwiches. You know what makes me even happier? When there's a healthier version of them- it helps me feel better about eating several of them in one sitting ;)

I had seen somewhere on Pinterest that if you blend frozen bananas, cocoa, and peanut butter, you end up with an alternative to ice cream that's shockingly good. What if you omit the cocoa and put the 'ice cream' on chocolate covered graham crackers? Blam! You have these.

 I think frozen bananas are going to be pretty excited about serving another purpose besides banana bread.

Because I forgot to pin the banana 'ice cream' there wasn't really a whole lot of measuring that went into this, but I'll give you some estimates.

In a food processor, blend 2 frozen bananas and a 1/4 c. of peanut butter. If it seems too runny, put it back in the freezer to firm up.
Meanwhile, melt 1/4 c. of chocolate chips in a saucepan on low heat. Remove from heat and spread chocolate on graham crackers.
Scoop banana mixture on to a graham cracker and top with another to make a sandwich (obviously). Once assembled, wrap in plastic and keep in the freezer.
This should make 8-10 sandwiches depending on how much of the banana mixture you use.
