SHF #7: Molasses Snaps and Banana Ice Cream


This is my first participation in a sugar high friday (and quite a late entry at that).

I made molassas snaps with banana ice cream/smootie. Here is the recipe:

Molasses Snaps

Preheat oven to 350 F

In a pan on low heat combine 2 oz sugar, 2 tbl molasses, and 2 oz butter.

When melted and combined through stirring add 2 oz flour, a pinch of salt, and 2 tsp ginger powder and combine.

Then add the juice of half a lemon, mix, and take off the heat.

Proceed to drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat while reserving 2 tbl of the mixture.

Bake for 10 min.

Form into the desired shapes and let cool.

Banana Ice Cream/Smoothie

In a food processor combine 2 tbl of the molasses snap mixture, 1 frozen ripened banana, 1 tbl sugar, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/2 shaved ice.

When combined into a smooth mixture place in the freezer to come together.

Dust the snaps with powdered sugar and serve with the frozen banana mixture.
