Remove mixture from food processor and into a bowl.
Now add the chocolate and the flax meal and mix into the dough with your hands.

Now shape each ball into desired cookie shape and place on lined baking tray.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, depending on your oven.
Let baked cookies sit on baking tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
For the ice cream (for 2 Ice Cream sandwiches):
Blend all ingredients except the dark chocolate, in a high-quality blender.

Sandwich mixture in between two Vegan Protein Choc Cookies and freeze for 5 minutes.
Melt dark chocolate in microwave and drizzle over the top of the cookie sandwiches then return for sandwiches to the freezer for a further 5 minutes.
When the chocolate is hard, the sandwiches are ready to eat.
