Stuffed Banana's

This week I am hosting dessert! 

Stuffed banana's are a great way to get your kids involved in the dessert making process. Our kids thought this was great as they could help assemble and put the topping in themselves. It is also a very simple dessert that doesn't take a lot of work and tastes great and not heavy on the tummy at the end of a long hot day.


Banana's fresh ripe yellow banana's
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 bag of sweetened shredded coconut


1) Take a banana and cut the inside of the banana as the picture shows on the right. Gently peel back the banana peel careful not to remove it from the banana.

2) Cut the banana in half while in the peel and be careful not to puncture the banana peel on the other side.

3) Now let the FUN begin! Stuff your banana with as many chocolate chips and coconut as you can fit between the banana halves. The coconut and chocolate chips can overflow it's fine. Now take the peel and pull it back over the banana as best as you can.

4) Wrap the banana in the aluminum foil and place onto the campfire for 5-7 minutes. You want to rotate your banana in the campfire every 2 minutes to make sure that the cooking is even on the banana. Once the banana is off of the campfire let it cool for about 2-3 minutes so that the foil is easy to handle without getting burned.

5) Foil is cooled start to unwrap your banana and remove the top piece of peel. Take a spoon and DIG IN!

You can use any type of toppings when stuffing your banana some suggestions chocolate chips, marshmallows, crushed graham crackers, peanut butter, sun butter, almond butter, sweetened coconut flakes and many many more combinations can be made. Use your imagination and have fun!
