I has a hankering for banana pudding, but not just any old banana pudding. I’m talking about Southern banana pudding, the type with layers of vanilla wafers and banana in between vanilla pudding. I usually make an easy recipe from the box of Publix vanilla wafers, which calls for horrifying ingredients such as non-dairy whipped topping and boxes of pudding mix. The girls almost fired me as their mom the last time I brought home a container of cool whip. I searched for a Paleo recipe, but I could only find recipes for the pudding itself. I settled on making these almond flour cookies . I just omitted the step of dipping them in chocolate.
The pudding was quite attractive! Jewel and I liked it better than my regular banana pudding. It’s less sweet and has more banana flavor. This is still a high calorie and fairly high carb dessert, but it contains real food instead of empty calories. I had cookies leftover, so another night I drizzled leftover chocolate sauce from the chocolate covered bacon over them, and we gobbled them down!
