Chef Katie’s Tips
No Refined Sugar or Syrup? I’m on a mission to get rid of empty calories. This dessert doesn’t use any refined sugar, maple syrup, or other refined sweetener. Dried dates and ripe bananas provide sweetness, along with healthy fiber and essential nutrients.
Chocolate-Free: Substitute carob powder for the cocoa powder. Omit and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla for a Vanilla “I-Scream”
Save for Later: For enjoying later, tightly cover the I-Scream with plastic and place back in the freezer for up to two hours. Or store in the freezer for up to a month. Simply let thaw about 15-20 minutes before enjoying.
Other Flavors: Use this recipe as a template to add other flavors. Add flavor twists by adding 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, espresso powder, or pumpkin pie spice mix.
Weigh Your Ingredients: For precise measuring and consistent results, always weigh your ingredients. A small kitchen scale makes this easy to do. This will save you time and give you more delicious muffins and breads.
