Three Easy Desserts with ginnybakes

Desserts Just in Time for Valentine's Day

If you’ve been searching for the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert, look no further! I partnered with ginnybakes to bring you three simple yet delicious dessert sweet treats for your Valentine! There’s a good chance you’ve already heard about ginnybakes since all of their cookies, bars and mixes are organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher!

Casey and I love to cook together—especially when it comes to dessert—so one night after dinner we experimented with different recipes that brought out the flavors of the ginnybakes cookies! If you’re like me, then you don’t like making recipes that are complicated and take a long time to prep, so we created these healthy recipes with those of you in mind! Bon Appetit!

The Ultimate Frozen Yogurt Sandwich

ginnybakes cookies are an amazing choice for any dessert because they’re so flavorful! All you have to do for this dessert is pick a yogurt flavor that pairs well with your favorite cookie. You can even make your own frozen yogurt flavor!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out a full scoop of frozen yogurt. Put the yogurt on top of one cookie.
  2. Place another cookie on top of the yogurt and gently press down till the yogurt reaches the edges of the cookie.
  3. Loosely wrap the sandwich in parchment paper and store in the freezer until ready to eat.

Banana and Chocolate Bliss Crumble Crepes

Believe it or not, crepes are actually super easy to make, and they’re a huge hit in the Lavin household! For Valentine’s Day, I recommend crepes with a sliced banana + chocolate crumble filling with honey drizzled on top. Yum!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour and 2 eggs.
  2. Blend until the batter thins out.
  3. Heat a small frying pan over medium high heat. Add a 1 tsp of oil to the pan, then pour about 1/2 cup of batter on the pan. Gently tilt the pan in circular motion so that the batter evenly coasts the surface of the. (This takes practice!)
  4. Cook the crepe for about 1 minute until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, then flip and allow the other side to cook until light brown. Set the crepe aside on a plate.
  5. Place 1 tbsp of applesauce in the same frying pan.
  6. Add the sliced bananas and stir for about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Finish with freshly grated Cinnamon
  8. Remove the bananas from the heat and place it on the center of your crepe.
  9. Top with ginnybakes Chocolate Bliss Crumble.
  10. Drizzle with honey.
