Have you jumped on the pudding cookie craze? I had not ventured the pudding cookie up until a couple weekends ago. Boy – I think I am a total convert. It truly changes everything about the cookie. These Banana Macadamia Nut Cookies were originally meant to be a standard white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. But the hubs picked up cook & serve pudding when he did the weekly shopping. Well that’s a no-go when it comes to cookies. So I had to use what I had in the pantry which was chocolate & banana. But you know what – I think adding the banana really gave these cookies the twist they needed to set them apart from the standard macadamia nut cookie. The whole family loved them.

I have always been skeptical! They look like they came from a bakery!

They look perfect! I have not tried pudding cookies yet but definitely will now. I think it was a happy accident the hubby got the wrong kind. Thanks for sharing!

I have not gotten into the pudding cookie craze yet… I’ve been fighting it for some reason! You may have me convinced now! I love the combination here… I always think of traditional white chocolate macadamia cookies and kind of tropical and the banana flavor would fit so well. Thanks for sharing!
How many cookies does this recipe make?
Gina Kleinworth says
My apologies. I added that recipe to my site over 7 years ago, so the details on the recipe card are scarce. I’m slowly working through the 2000 early recipes on my site & updating them. But since it was so long ago, I don’t quite remember exactly how many this makes, but it should be at least 24 cookies.
