Can an ice cream sandwich actually be made with healthful ingredients?

The answer is a lip-smacking yes, thanks to Kristin Cavallari, who posted a delectable batch of cookie sandwiches on Instagram.

“Just made ice cream sandwiches with coconut bliss ice cream,” the actress/fashion designer wrote. “The cookies are vegan and gluten free but taste amazing.”

Instead of using butter and eggs to make the cookies, Cavallari — who’s pregnant with baby number two and clearly making smart food choices — substituted applesauce, a favorite trick of health-conscious bakers. She also nixed white flour for a gluten-free, vegan version and threw in some fiber-rich flax meal for texture.

But she didn’t stop there.

Instead of traditional chocolate chips, Cavallari used vegan bits. Her final smart substitution, which she scooped between the baked cookies: Coconut Bliss, which has the rich taste of ice cream but since it’s made with coconut milk, has absolutely no dairy, soy or gluten.

If you wrap each sandwich individually before freezing, you’ll always have dessert on hand! Here’s Cavallari’s recipe, which she shared with PEOPLE.

Gluten-Free Chocolate-Chip Cookie Sandwiches

1 cup coconut oil
6 tbsp. applesauce
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
1¼ cups evaporated cane sugar
2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
¼ cup flax meal
1 tsp. baking soda
1½ tsp. xanthan gum
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 pint dairy-free ice cream, such as Coconut Bliss

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, applesauce, salt, vanilla and sugar. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda and xanthan gum.

3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until a grainy dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

4. Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the portions 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies on the center rack for 15 minutes, rotating the sheets 180 degrees after 9 minutes. The finished cookies will be crisp on the edges and soft in the center.

5. Let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack before putting a scoop of ice cream in between two cookies.

6. Wrap sandwiches individually in plastic wrap before putting in the freezer.

Kristin Cavallari Is ‘Nervous’ Son Will Feel Replaced By New Baby

Kristin Cavallari‘s life could not seem more ideal at the moment.

Even though she’s juggling being a mom to son Camden Jack, 19 months, with cohosting her new show Fabulist and prepping for another boy on the way in May, the former star of The Hills lives a considerably less chaotic life than the one she had during her reality TV heyday.

Making a way for herself in the Windy City, parenting comes effortlessly to Cavallari, who gets by with help from her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

“He’s such an amazing dad,” the Fit Pregnancy cover girl recently told PEOPLE. “I honestly couldn’t ask for a better dad. He’s really sweet with Camden. He plays with him all the time. He’s on the floor with him rolling around and goofing off.”

The endearing side underneath Cutler’s tough-guy exterior is not something easily spotted by everyone. “Jay really does have a very sweet side, and he only lets a select few see that,” Cavallari explains. “But I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing.”

One of the most exciting parts about adding another member to their family is upgrading Camden’s living space. “We’re getting Camden’s big boy room ready,” Cavallari says. “He loves his new room, so I think he’ll be excited about that.”

But according to the TV personality, Camden isn’t necessarily aware of why he’s moving on up.

“We try to tell him there’s a baby inside Mommy’s belly. He doesn’t really understand that,” she shares. “We’ll be like, ‘Camden, do you want to be a big brother?’ and he’ll shake his head no.”

But once reality does hit her little one, she expects he will be a great big brother.

“He’s really a sweet little boy,” Cavallari says. “When I have play dates, he’s really more interested in the babies than the older boys and girls. Any time a baby comes over, he’s really concerned about the baby and wants to hug it and give it kisses.”

Cavallari just hopes her elder son doesn’t get the wrong idea.

“I’m nervous,” she says. “I don’t want him to feel like he’s being replaced. I know the first few months are going to be hard when I’m breastfeeding all the time. We’re just going to try to be so careful to make sure he’s still getting a lot of attention, knows he’s still extremely loved and this baby is in no way taking his spot.”

Luckily, designing a new room for Camden is the only big expense Cavallari and Cutler have had to shell out for the new addition. “We literally did not have to buy anything, not one thing,” the former Laguna Beach star explains.

“I got him a new blanket and a little rattle and a couple of little things, but overall, I haven’t had to get anything. It’s been really easy. The second time around, you know exactly what to expect and we’re just ready.”

She adds: “The first time, you’re anxious, you’re nervous, you’re excited, you have so many emotions. It’s like the closer you get to your due date, you’re ready but you’re also not quite ready, so you don’t mind if the baby stays in there. But this one, I’m like, ‘Let’s get him out here, I want to see him, I just want to hold him and see what he looks like.’ I’m just really excited more than anything.”

TMI! Kristin Cavallari Talks Pregnancy Sex With Husband

Posted by Adam

ad5ckristin cavallari 01 300 TMI! Kristin Cavallari Talks Pregnancy Sex With HusbandKRISTIN Cavallari says her husband doesn’t want to have sex with her now that she’s pregnant!

The star is married to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, and is expecting their second son in May.

“Sex is funny when you’re pregnant. Guys get weird about it,” Cavallari tells Fit Pregnancy magazine’s April/May issue.

“I’m like, ‘Oh Jay, the baby’s kicking!’ And he’s like, not wanting to know about it.

“It’s important for women to realize — if your guy is a little weirded out but isn’t good at expressing that, it can be isolating.

“It’s important to make time for the relationship. Lighting a candle and taking a bath together is great — it doesn’t even have to be in a sexual way, just getting in the bath and talking,” she says.

“Jay and I have date nights too, going out for dinner. It’s not as often as we’d like, but we do our best. Just putting a cute outfit on is a thrill for me.”

Cavallari, 27, and Cutler, 30, are already parents to 19-month-old son Camden Jack, and the former reality star is thrilled to be raising a family in her younger years.

“It’s cute to see Jay as such a great dad! We’re excited to do this while we’re young,” she explains. “Then when the kids go to college, we can travel and do whatever we want.

“With Camden I got to the hospital when I was four-and-a-half centimeters dilated — I thought I was dying. We were living in the city, two seconds from the hospital, and now we’re an hour away. So I know the second I feel contractions, we’re going!

“The first time, I brought kale chips with me, which is the last thing you want when you just had a baby. We ended up getting steaks, I need better snacks this time. What was I thinking? Bring on the fat, please!

“My husband tells me I was born to have babies because it comes so naturally to me. I think I’m a good mom in the sense that I’m loving and nurturing, but I also set boundaries.”
