What you'll need:

  • 1/3 cup creamy nut butter: I used peanut butter!

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

  • 1 tbsp NH THRIVE Vanilla Pancake Batter Plant Protein

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice: I simply mixed togther 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cardamon.

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup: Date syrup, rice malt syrup or honey would work well too.

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil: Melted

  • 2 cups vegan vanilla ice cream

  • Halloween sprinkles: This is optional, but I highly reccommend ;)


Here's how to make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a tray with baking paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, nut butter, vanilla, coconut oil and maple syrup.

  3. Once combined and in the flours, protein powder salt, and baking soda.

  4. Leave this mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes to set and become less sticky.

  5. Once set, using a cookie scoop or your hands roll the mixture into 10 little balls, 3 inches apart and flatten slightly.

  6. Bake for 8 - 12 minutes or until lightly golden.

  7. Leave to cool for 10 - 15 minutes after baking.

  8. Once cooled, spoon on the ice cream (see TIPS below for an alternative) ensuring it's thick enough to roll in the sprinkles. ( I ended up using a cookie cutter for the ice cream, to make sure it was the perfect size)

  9. Set in freezer for another 10 minutes and enjoy!



  • These melt quickly, so make sure they're kept in the freezer! (lasts 2 weeks in the freezer, but we're sure they'll be gone before then)

  • Have all the other ingredients, but don't have Vegan Ice-Cream, here's the next best thing! Blend together some frozen bananas, ice, light coconut milk (optional) and THRIVE vanilla pancake batter protein for a great alternative.
