Roasted Banana Pudding
I tend to favor custard- and pudding-type desserts — especially when they are full of good fats like coconut milk or fresh cream from grass-fed cows. These desserts don’t rely on gluten to keep them together, and just a little is enough to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Both vanilla and chocolate pudding are great, but it pays to experiment with unusual and unique flavors too!
A fun spin on the old favorite, Roasted Banana Pudding is one of the regulars in my household.
It makes a wonderful dessert that can travel from your table to a potluck or picnic or BBQ. Because it’s not overly sweet, it also makes a great mid-afternoon or late-night snack… or even a sweet addition to your children’s lunchboxes!
Every time I make this recipe, I get the assurance that my family is avoiding an unnecessary amount of sweetening. It’s also gluten- and grain-free, not topped with sugary vanilla-flavored cookies as so many banana puddings usually are. Rather, Wildly Organic Coconut Chips, lightly toasted, give this unconventional pudding a slightly crunchy textural component.
This tried-and-true favorite is impeccably delicious and beautiful every single time.
