Twist on a Southern Treat

I’ve never met a person who didn’t like banana pudding. It’s one of those desserts that’s just a classic. I remember my grandmother making it as a kid. The creamy pudding and cookies- plus cool whip on top, I loved cool whip. You could almost argue for healthy, because hey, it had bananas right?

There are a hundred and one recipes for banana pudding out there, but basically, they are all pretty similar. Because my hubby has a love for banana pudding and an addiction to chocolate chip cookies I decided to that it would be a great time to combine them!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

gluten free chocolate chip banana puddingWe love chocolate chip cookies around here! It may sound a bit strange, but we actually like to freeze them. Forget hot gluten free chocolate chip cookies, there is just something about biting into a cold cookie. Maybe because it’s always a billion degrees in South Florida.

Anyways- Goodie Girl makes out favorite gluten free chocolate chip cookies. My whole family (even the none gluten free ones) love them. The look on my daughter’s face when she saw I had cookies out to make these chocolate chip banana puddings was priceless. It was all I could do to keep her from eating them all. She may or may not have eaten cookies for lunch that day! I barely finished taking pictures before her hand was going after these gluten free chocolate chip banana puddings!gluten free chocolate chip banana pudding

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Pudding


gluten free chocolate chip banana puddingThis is a really simple recipe to make. You can sever it in individual cups or layer it in a square baking dish.

Something that I do that may be a bit different than some banana puddings, is that I add cream cheese to the pudding mixture. I find that it thickens the pudding nicely and it cuts the sweetness just a bit.

The addition of chocolate chip cookies is such a simple switch, but it totally makes this dessert! We like to top it with mini chocolate chips or one of Goodie Girl’s Mini Chocolate Chunk Cookies (they sell these in individual packages- amazing!).

Be sure to go check out all of Goodie Girls great cookies! If you love chocolate chip cookies, you will love this Chocolate Chip Cookie Crusted French Toast as well!

So tell me- what is your absolute favorite dessert?

Happy Gluten Free Eating!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Goodness

We are huge chocolate chip cookie lovers at this house. Chocolate chip cookies are my husband’s favorite. As I was working on this post I kept having to hide the cookies because my husband kept eating them. He would give me a sad puppy dog look every time I told him, “No, I’m not done with them yet!”.

These chocolate chip cookies are some of the best on the market. If you like your cookies a bit on the crunchy side with just the right amount sweetness, they are perfect. These Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies even have Quinoa in them to give a little boost of healthy. Plus, Quinoa means that it would only be right to eat at least two….or 3…or the whole bag. Whatever you prefer!

There are some new cookies hitting the shelves of Publix. With flavors that will remind you of Girl Scouts (except these are gluten free!), one bite and you will understand why their slogan is

Goodness Never Tasted so Naughty.

They are ridiculously good. When I got my first boxes in, my family had to taste them. Next thing you know I’m hiding them to keep them from eating them before I take my pictures. No one can tell they are gluten free. There is nothing “gluten free” tasting about them and let me tell you, you better be careful because you will eat a whole bag.

One of the things people miss most when becoming gluten free is the baked goods. You probably thought good cookies were a thing of the past. Sure you can make them, but that takes time. You can’t just open up a bag and enjoy. Thankfully, Publix is now carrying three of the Goodie Girl Cookie flavors for you to enjoy any time you want, plus I have a great giveaway for you to win some for yourself!

Thin Mints

You all know that time of year. Little girls start showing up at tables in front of every store with piles of cookies. You walk by with your head hanging low, trying to avoid eye contact so you won’t have to tell them you aren’t buying any. All those gluten filled Thin Mints you used to love, now a thing of the past.

Well, not anymore. Goodie Girl Cookies has your back. Their Thin Mint Cookies taste just as good, if not, dare I say, better than the Girl Scout Thin Mints. If you love chocolate and mint, these cookies are for you.


Goodie Girl Cookies in South FloridaQuinoa Chocolate Chip

Now, when I first read “quinoa” I thought, oh great, another cookie ruined by someone’s attempt to make cookies healthy. Cookies just aren’t healthy, it’s part of the definition. I was wrong. They are awesome! They don’t even taste like quinoa, they taste like chocolate chip cookies. These were a quick favorite at our house. Chocolate chip cookies are just that one cookie that everyone loves. The Quinoa Chocolate Chip also come in go packs, which are perfect for lunches or when you’re out and about.

Sooooo good. Crisp, with a bit of a crunch. Everything that you would expect in an Oatmeal Raisin cookie. These have that great balance of being sweet but not to sweet, with that great oatmeal texture. Out of the three these are actually my favorite.
