Whole Wheat Pastry Flour: 1/2 Cup
Whole Wheat Flour: 1/2 Cup
Cinnamon: 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Butter 1/2 Cup
Brown Sugar 1/2 Cup
White Sugar 1/2 Cup
Egg: 2 large
Vanilla: 1/2 tsp
Rolled Oats (not instant): 2 Cups
1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
2/3 Cup Ice Cream

Start uses organic, fat--free frozen yogurt, but any ice--cream will work!

Whisk flours, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.

With an electric stand mixer, beat butter and sugars for about 2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add egg & vanilla and blend until just combined.  

Add flour mix to wet ingredients and mix at low speed until just blended. Add Oats and Chocolate Chips, stir on low.

Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes.

Cool on rack and then freeze before forming sandwiches.

Remove cookies from freezer and squish one rounded scoop of ice cream between the cookies. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the freezer.
