All of us have those recipes that take us back to our childhood. The ones our grandma would make during the holidays or the ones our mom would only make for special occasions. I have so many special memories from the things my grandma and mom would bake for us. It was their love language and we always felt very loved.
I started with the vanilla wafer cookies. I tried so many recipes (like seriously so many), but none of them were exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a flat, crispy, chewy cookie with just enough vanilla flavor. I FINALLY came up with just the right ratio of all of the ingredients. I have a feeling I’ll be making these little cookies a lot now! For the vanilla pudding, I made a simple recipe that I’ve done countless times. There is no bananas in the actual pudding, just fresh bananas layered into the dessert. When it came to the whipped cream, So Delicious came to my rescue!
So Delicious has a new product coming out and I can guarantee this one will get you excited! Who ate Cool Whip as a kid, on just about everything? We all know it’s full of unhealthy fats and artificial everything. There are a couple brands that make an organic version, but they aren’t dairy free. Until now! Introducing…So Delicous CocoWhip. It’s made with organic coconuts, GMO-free, non-hydrogenated, vegan, gluten free and soy free. It’s also super tasty and 10x’s better than the other stuff! At the end of the month, grocery stores will start to stock So Delicious CocoWhip (primarily in Whole Foods to start). If you find it, buy it and store it in your freezer. It will surely come in handy during the holidays!

Start by making vanilla pudding. Whisk together sugar and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Over medium heat, whisk in coconut milk and coffee creamer. While stirring constantly, cook until bubbly and thick (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour warm pudding into bowl and cover with plastic wrap touching pudding. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1-2 hours or overnight.
When pudding is chilled, bake vanilla wafers. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In medium bowl, sift together oat flour, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In large bowl, mix together sugar, applesauce, melted coconut oil, coffee creamer and vanilla. Stir until blended. Add flour mixture and stir until combined.
*If you are unable to find So Delicious culinary milk, you can substitute with any brand of full-fat coconut milk.
**Blend about 1 cup certified gluten free oats in high-powdered blender on high until fine oat flour has formed. Measure out 3/4 cup of oat flour.
