Hi everyone! I’m Marly, from Namely Marly. When Wendy asked me to write for her on AMFT she asked me to share a frozen treat recipe. First I did my happy dance, and then I immediately starting contemplating what I would make. I thought over a thousand ideas on frozen treats, but none of them seemed like “the one”. Talk about brain freeze!
And then one day I was in a bakery and saw a tray of banana chocolate chip muffin tops. I licked my chops looking at that tray. Is there anything better than a muffin top? Nothing but crunchy topping everywhere you look. Well, now that I think about it, muffin tops and jeans are not a favorite combination. Maybe we should stick to the kind that come in the bakery. So as I was looking at the tray of muffin tops at my local bakery, I thought back to my favorite frozen treat as a child. Vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone with a chocolate coating and chopped peanuts on top. That’s right…the drumstick.
And that’s when it hit me. Muffins and Drumsticks have something in common. The best part is at the top!
The problem, I realized, was that the Drumstick has been slighted in this whole deal. The muffin has a muffin top, but not the poor drumstick. Doesn’t it seem only fair there should also be drumstick tops too?
In order to make these frozen treats a little easier to eat, I reduced them to bite-sized portions and so that’s what we have – Frozen Drumstick Bites. Now you get the goodness of a Drumstick without the hassle of working your way through the waffle cone. This recipe is vegan and gluten-free and still manages to be absolutely addicting.
