Easy Pudding Cookies

Pudding cookies are one of my favorite cookies to make because they come together so quickly and they are super soft and moist. This banana split version of these pudding cookies uses the basic cake mix with pudding recipe, but with an extra-ripe chopped up banana thrown in. (If you’re like me, you almost always have a pile of brown bananas hanging out on your kitchen counter…and what better way to use ’em up than in cookies?)

To give these pudding cookies the chocolate “topping” that we all love on top of our banana splits, I simply melted some chocolate chips and drizzled it over the tops of them. And, since we love sprinkles at my house, I added some of those as well!

How To Make Banana Pudding Cookies

Prep – I like to use a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for these cookies to make it easier to clean the baking sheets. Using a baking mat is also a great idea. You’ll also want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Wet Then Dry –  Start by mixing the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix together the oil and the eggs. Next, add them in with the dry ingredients and then mix everything until fully combined. Lastly, you fold the chopped bananas into the cookie mix.

Make It Hot – Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and then place them evenly onto the baking sheet. I like to use a cookie scoop to keep the size uniform. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are beginning to brown around the edges.

Add Chocolate – Allow the cookies to completely cool before adding the chocolate. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and then drizzle over the top of the cookies. Add sprinkles and any other banana split toppings you enjoy.
