    There are lots of pudding pie recipes out there, but this one is my favorite because it has a bit of everything – bananas, chocolate, shipped topping, peanut butter, nuts – this is decadence at its best :) High on the calories, but still under 400 and if it’s your only snack of the day along with other 400 calories meals, then definitely allowed !
