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:
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.
