I am still following the "fermentation potential" (FP) diet, post Paleo Auto-Immune Protocol. I have to calculate the FP of everything I eat which means I will be eating this sparingly. But that is a good thing because you learn to savor each bite. FP is a measure of how easily or how hard a food is to digest.
Knowing the FP of foods is especially important for those of us with SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth). Keeping one's daily total FP low helps control symptoms, commonly labeled IBS.
Here's what you need for 3 small ice cream sandwiches: (FP per cookie: 3)
For the cookies:
3 T. unsweetened almond butter
3 T. cocoa powder
2 tsp. softened coconut oil
liquid vanilla stevia (no alcohol)-1/2 dropper full
1 tsp. vanilla extract (no alcohol)
For the filling:
1/2 small avocado
2 tsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. mint extract (no alcohol)
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
Here's what you do:
Mix softened almond butter and coconut oil with all other cookie ingredients. Use a regular teaspoon to measure out each cookie and place on a piece of wax paper. Place the cookies in the freezer to firm up.
In the meantime, make the filling. Blend the filling ingredients in a food processor until creamy.
To assemble, place a teaspoon full of peppermint avocado filling between two cookies. Put the assembled cookies back in the freezer to firm up. That's it! Now settle back and enjoy a no-fuss cookie.
