Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches!!!

This is one of my fave indulgences every once a while. This can be a reward for staying on track with workouts and eating clean. So, rather I'm stressed out or having a craving,it's is a satisfying treat. This is also an easy fun yummy treat to make with the kids! 

I generally get mine cut in fours from Potbelly's Sandwich shop they're approximately 2 1/2-3 inches in diameter. I eat a quarter and it generally takes me a couple of weeks to eat it (yes it remains chewy on because Potbelly's cookies are always fresh baked same day). I worked at Potbelly in my earlier college years. So, I decided to get a recipe of my own where I can freeze my batter. I will make a size that I'll be comfortable eating. 

eat so about a quarter size. So, I am sharing my fave cookie treat with you all! I have altered the recipe for a more natural treat you may alter to your liking! Let me know what you guys think also if you have a recipe share it!
