Almond Ice Cream Bars

Summer will be here before I know it; the temperatures have already started creeping up and when that happens I tend to use my oven less and less.  I created these Almond Ice Cream Bars as a dessert for my family and I think we all agreed that these are an excellent warm weather treat.

These bars are no-bake, Paleo friendly and sweetened with honey.  They have an almond shortbread crust, almond butter and coconut cream filling and coconut butter drizzle.

The coconut butter topping and sprinkle of cinnamon is optional, but gives these bars a more polished, complete look.  (I mean, they look a bit naked without it!)  You could also drizzle with chocolate.

  3. Combine all filling ingredients in a small saucepan.  Place on stove top and melt on low heat, stirring frequently.
