Banana pudding is one of our favorite dessert recipes. The combination of cream, banana, and wafer is a classic. These little cookie sandwiches capture the flavors all in a bite sized snack that is fun for little ones or for bringing to a summer BBQ or cookout.

  • Vanilla wafers: Use classic Nilla Wafers or an Organic Vanilla Wafer.
  • Heavy Cream: Both heavy cream and whipping cream will work.
  • Powdered Sugar: Confectioner’s sugar melts into the mousse nicely. You can substitute with granulated white sugar or organic cane sugar, just add the sugar when you start mixing the cream to help it blend in completely.
  • Instant Banana Pudding: A box mix of instant banana pudding makes this

How to Make Banana Pudding Cookie Sandwiches

Banana mousse piped onto vanilla wafers.
  • Make Banana Mousse: pour the heavy cream into a mixing bowl, and using a stand or hand mixer, start mixing until cream is a soft whipped cream. Add in the powdered sugar and instant pudding mix. Then continue to mix until soft peaks form in the mousse.
  • Piping: Add the banana mousse to a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe the mousse onto half of the vanilla wafers. Use the remaining wafers to create sandwiches.
  • Sprinkles: a fun option that is not necessary, but make the banana pudding cookies colorful! Simply roll the cookies in some colorful sprinkles (or these dye-free sprinkles!)
