Tips for Best Results

  • Use ripe bananas, the riper the bananas, the sweeter and more flavorful your cookies will be.
  • Do not over bake. Keep an eye on the cookies and remove them from the oven as soon as the edges turn golden brown to ensure they stay soft and chewy.
  • Ensure your butter and eggs are at room temperature for the best mixing results.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack to set their shape and texture properly.

Variations

  • fold in some chopped walnuts or pecans for a crunchy texture.
  • substitute white chocolate chips with dark chocolate for a richer flavor.
  • add a handful of shredded coconut to the batter for a tropical twist.
  • use a gluten-free flour blend to make these cookies suitable for those with gluten sensitivities.

Serving suggestions

These cookies are fantastic with a cold glass of milk or a warm cup of coffee or praline latte.

For an extra special treat, try serving them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They also make a wonderful addition to a dessert platter alongside other cookies and sweets at parties.

Storage

Keep banana pudding cookies in an airtight container at room temperature, and they’ll stay fresh for up to a week.

If you need to store them longer, place them in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to three months.
