Here is a super simple recipe for a very impressive dessert dish, that has a couple of different variations you can mix up to make your own. Baked banana boats are absolutely delicious! Please don’t be thrown off by the blackened peel, inside will be a perfectly baked banana that is absolutely to die for. Pictured above is the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle variation and I also tried the Cookies ‘N Cream; both amazing!

Ingredients

Firm ripe bananas

Variations:

S’More: 1/2 cup (125 ml) each of milk chocolate morsels, mini marshmallows, chopped graham crackers (2 1/2 whole crackers)

Cookies ‘N Cream: 1/2 cup (125 ml) each of semi-sweet chocolate morsels, mini marshmallows, chopped chocolate cream-filled cookies (5 total)

German Chocolate: 1/3 cup (75 ml) each of milk chocolate morsels, mini marshmallows, sweetened flaked coconut, chopped pecans

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle: 1/2 cup (125 ml) each of semi-sweet chocolate morsels, mini marshmallows, fresh raspberries (keep separate from morsels and marshmallows and place onto bananas last)

Chocolate Peanut Butter: 1/2 cup (125 ml) each of chopped classic peanut butter cups, (2 pkg/4 peanut butter cups total), mini marshmallows, dry roasted peanuts (chopped)

Directions

  1. Choose a variation. Preheat oven 350F
  2. Lay bananas on cutting board. Trim banana stems. Make a small cut at the stem end of each banana. Pull off top half of each banana peel, leaving the bottom of the peel intact. Scoop out enough banana to create a well. Arrange bananas in baking pan
  3. Prepare filling and combine in small bowl. Evenly fill bananas with filling. Bake 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are light golden brown
