Summer is winding down! In fact, Labor Day is a celebration not only of the achievements and contributions of the American labor movement, but also of the unofficial end of summer! So since summer is on its way out, let’s celebrate with one more no-churn ice cream! This one is special — it’s based on my all-time favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor: Oatmeal Cookie Chunk.
Oatmeal Cookie Chunk was sadly discontinued in 2012, but its mixture of cinnamon ice cream, oatmeal cookies, and fudge chunks is unforgettable! And this this no-churn version, you can make your own at home in no time! Because this is a no-churn ice cream, you don’t need an ice cream maker — just a few easy ingredients. Starting with oatmeal cookies!
What type of oatmeal cookies should I use for this ice cream?
I include a simple oatmeal cookie recipe below — it’s what I used to make this no-churn ice cream. But you can use any oatmeal cookie that you already love! This is also a great recipe to use leftover oatmeal cookies that you previously baked!
But to save time and effort, you can absolutely use store-bought oatmeal cookies! Just pick up a pack of your favorite cookies and break them up into chunks, and you’re ready!
For your ice cream base, you’ll need:
- heavy cream – we’ll be whipping this up
- sweetened condensed milk
- finely chopped semi-sweet chocolate – to fold in at the end!
If you’re not using storebought or leftover cookies, here’s what you’ll need for your cookies:
- salted butter – softened to room temperature
- light brown sugar – measured packed
- large egg – should be room temperature
- pure vanilla extract – crucial to add that vanilla flavor to the cookies!
- all-purpose flour – measured by the spoon-and-level method; or by weight: 64 grams
- old-fashioned rolled oats
- ground cinnamon
- baking soda
That’s the best part about this no churn oatmeal cookie ice cream! You won’t need any special equipment, and no ice cream maker! You’ll just need a hand mixer, a stand mixer, or just a whisk to whip up the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Beyond that, I found that the best size container for it is a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Here are a few other tools you might need:
