Satisfy your sweet cravings with these delectable Homemade Banana Pudding Cookies! Bursting with the irresistible flavors of ripe bananas and creamy pudding,

2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (3.4 oz) package instant banana pudding mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the mashed bananas, egg, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Add the instant banana pudding mix to the wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
Fold in the white chocolate chips and chopped nuts, if using, until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and lightly golden.
Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
Once cooled, store the Homemade Banana Pudding Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Enjoy these delicious cookies with a glass of cold milk or as a delightful snack any time of day!
