I’ve always been a fan of banana pudding. Creamy pudding, vanilla wafers, bananas, and whipped cream, Mmmm! Such a comforting classic dessert! I decided to take banana pudding and turn it into a cookie. I am always dreaming up new cookie recipes:)
I wasn’t sure if my idea would work, but these Banana Pudding cookies taste just like Banana Pudding. If you put on a blind fold and took a bite, I bet you would think you were eating banana pudding. Ok, well the texture is a little different since it is a cookie, but the flavor is spot on! 🙂
To create the Banana Pudding Cookies, I added a package of Banana Cream Pudding mix into the cookie dough. I love using pudding mixes in cookies because the pudding keeps the cookies super soft. If you like soft cookies, make sure you try my Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Pudding Cookies.
The Banana Cream Pudding gave the cookies the perfect banana flavor. You can’t have banana pudding with out vanilla wafers, so I added chopped up vanilla wafers into the cookie dough too! They added a nice little crunch and brought the banana pudding flavor to life. I stirred in white chocolate chips for the sweet whipped cream flavor.
If you are a banana pudding fan, you HAVE to make these Banana Pudding Cookies. Get your banana pudding fix in cookie form!
