This sweet, gooey slow cooker banana pudding is a fantastic dessert that you get cooking hours ahead of when you need it.
This dessert is far from the traditional banana pudding that you might know and love. This one is a pudding mix that is self-saucing, so that means by the end of cooking you will have an incredible “butterscotch” sauce. This sauce saves you having to do any extra work when it comes to extra sauces with the pudding.
If you have an excess number of bananas that need using, then this recipe is perfect. I only recommend two in the recipe, but you can go up to 4 if you want it extra strong in banana flavors.
You can also make banana bread in the slow cooker if you want to. Like this recipe, it’s a great way to make use of any overripe bananas you might have.
Any leftovers of this pudding so good for breakfast the next day. The sauce helps ensure that the pudding remains nice and moist so it won’t go dry when you reheat it. Simply keep in the fridge or freezer until you need it.
There is a ton of extras that you can have with this tasty slow cooker dessert. The sauce is usually more than enough but if you’re looking to go one step further then some vanilla ice cream, custard or cream work incredibly well with this dish.

- If you love the combination of chocolate and banana, then be sure to add about ½ cup chocolate chips to the banana pudding mix. This extra ingredient will leave you with amazing gooey bits of chocolate in the pudding.
- The cornstarch can be left out without impacting this dish too much. The only reason to include it is to help thicken the sauce.
