Hey Everybody! I have the perfect summertime sweet treat to share with you today! These banana boats are a comfort dessert at its best – they are ooey-gooey and oh so messy, but utterly delicious! Although this might be a classic campfire treat, the good news is that if you live in a condo like we do and can’t exactly have a bonfire on your balcony, you can still make these in your oven in just a couple of minutes! All you need are some bananas, and whatever fillings you want! I stuffed these with dark chocolate, almonds and mini marshmallows and which was so good, but you could use whatever you have on hand, or whatever your favorite nuts, chocolates or candies are!
OVEN BAKED BANANA BOATS
YOU WILL NEED
Chocolate chips or chunks
Nutella or peanut butter
… and any other delicious fillings you can think of!
Preheat your oven to 350 deg F. Cut a slit in the bananas lengthwise, making sure you don’t cut through the peel on the bottom. Gently pull the sides apart and fill the inside of the banana with whatever fillings you choose! I used dark chocolate, almonds and mini marshmallows here. Next, wrap the whole bananas in aluminum foil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, or until the filling has melted. I uncovered the top at that point and placed the bananas under the broiler for a minute to toast the marshmallows. Let cool for a couple of minutes before eating. And if you’re feeling extra indulgent, top with whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles or ice-cream for extra sweet goodness!
