Growing up, bananas and dessert did not go together. EVER.
Either you were eating healthy and munching on some fruit or you were enjoying a sweet treat. Those two things could not happen at the same time. And, I mean...why ruin perfectly good muffins, cookies, or cake with bananas?!?
A few weeks ago I was in NYC and walked past Magnolia Bakery. Of course, I had to go inside. Even though they don't offer gluten free products, some things are simply too hard to resist. Now, they are well-known for their banana pudding. And man, it did not disappoint! Recently, they even came out with a banana pudding cookie! Maybe that will be next on my gluten free recipe list...
I guess bananas and baked goods actually go pretty well together! Plus, the bananas add natural sweetness and moisture.
Traditionally, a vanilla pudding is made from scratch. It is then layered in a large serving dish with sliced bananas and vanilla wafers.
A Southern classic, the exact origin is not known. Bananas became available in the United States after the Civil War. The earliest recipe can be traced back to a Good Housekeeping from 1888. In the 1920s, vanilla wafers began to be used. Before that, sponge cake most commonly served as the base for banana pudding.
With bananas, gluten free vanilla wafers, and a vanilla pudding frosting- these banana pudding baked oatmeal muffins will quickly become a family favorite!
