Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Coffee Ice Cream – gluten free + vegan

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Coffee Ice Cream

it’s still heavily february,
i mean,
it registers as 22F
right now,
which means ice cream is
the very last thing on one’s mind,
i know.
but when one celebrates
Ice Cream for Breakfast Day,
a day that falls
smack dab in the middle of winter,
it’s gotta be something
i’ve never been a fan of
raw batter or cookie dough.
i have to wrestle
the whisk
out of dw’s hands
and immediately dunking it
into soapy water,
lest he licks it clean.
but the cookie dough used
in this recipe is eggless,
and because i don’t know
how i feel about raw flour,
i used almond meal instead.
the coffee base is strong,
not one that i could consume
much of at night,
so, for breakfast it is!
