Ginger Orange Ice-cream Sandwiches

Ginger Orange Ice-cream Sandwiches
(makes about 26 cookies)

3 cups almond flour
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tbsp coconut flour
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup sunflower oil
zest of 2 Valencia oranges
3/4 cup agave nectar 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 cups dried cherries

Preset the oven to 350 F.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the agave nectar and orange zest and stir, then allow to sit for a few minutes. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. 

Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the agave and orange zest and stir well. When thoroughly mixed, pour the wet ingredients into the dry bowl. Stir. Add the cherries. Combine well. 

Scoop onto a parchment covered cookie sheet (about 2 tbsp per scoop). Bake for 17 minutes. 

Remove and allow to cool on a drying rack. 

Now, for the ice-cream portion, I recommend grabbing some So Delicious Brand Coconut Ice-cream and spreading a generous spoonful in between two of the cookies. Enjoy!
