Samoa Cookie Pudding {Grain-, Sugar- & Dairy-Free}

Samoa Cookie Pudding {Grain-, Sugar- & Dairy-Free}

Since my daughter is a Girl Scout, we are in the middle of cookie sales. You know how I love cookies….I LOOOOOOOOOVE cookies! But not wheat-filled, inflame-my-body, cramp-my-stomach cookies. No, not those. But I do sometimes daydream about the Samoa cookies that are my all-time favorite Girl Scout cookie. Taking a cue from my Pumpkin Pie Pudding, I recreated that coconut-y, caramel-y, crunchy yumminess of the Samoa. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Samoa Cookie Pudding

Yield: 2 Servings

Samoa Cookie Pudding

Ingredients

    For the Pudding:
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/8 teaspoon caramel extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia glycerite (or sweeter, if desired)
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • For the Crunch:
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup oat fiber
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia glycerite (or sweeter, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (NOT melted)

Directions

For the Pudding:

Mix all ingredients together and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

For the Crunch (this makes more than you'll need for 2 servings, but save it for more pudding or use it as cereal with some unsweetened almond milk!):*

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Combine all ingredients except for the coconut oil, mix well. Cut the coconut oil into the mixture until crumbly. Spread onto a greased cookie sheet and cook for about 15 minutes, until it starts to brown. After removing from the oven, stir it around a bit. It will get crispy as it cools.

Mix some of the crunch into pudding and top with more shredded coconut. Enjoy!

Notes

*If you don't have the time or inclination to make the crunch (even though it is SO good), simply crush up your favorite healthy cookie instead.
