ben's peanut butter pudding

Recipe by

My son is a peanut-butter-and-honey maniac! He also loves cinnamon apple sauce and bananas wrapped in peanut buttery tortillas. One day we got creative and came up with this gem. A friend, who isn't a big fan of peanut butter, tasted our pudding today...and finished off the leftovers! Note: all measurements are approximate. I rarely measure anything. Second note: I've completely changed this recipe, simplifying directions, editing amounts, and adding pudding mix. The original recipe was almost 2000 calories per serving!

How To Make ben's peanut butter pudding

  • 1
    You can use a processor or blender if you choose. I just use a fork and a mixing bowl; less cleanup.
  • 2
    Mix pudding using less milk than called for. (You can thin it later if needed.)
  • 3
    Mash banana, apple sauce, and peanut butter together. You can add the honey and cinnamon now, too, to get it well incorporated.
  • 4
    Combine with pudding and thin with milk if needed. Fold in marshmallows and rice crispies right before serving.
  • 5
    Eat with a spoon or spread on toast or crackers!
