Banana Boat S’mores

Here’s yet another delicious take on marshmallows and chocolate, but this time we made it “healthy” by pairing it with bananas and granola. It’s somewhat healthier and just as tasty as the original s’mores, if not more so. It’s also just as messy and it doesn’t always come out of the coals or off the grate looking like it’s time for a social media post, but the flavors make up for that. Grab a spoon and plenty of napkins and enjoy.

4 ripe bananas
½ cup or so of chocolate chips
½ cup or so of marshmallows
½ cup or so of granola

Instead of opening the bananas the usual way by peeling them, you want to take a knife and just cut through the peel lengthwise, from top to bottom. Open the peel up a little and sprinkle the chocolate chips, marshmallows and granola on top of the banana but save enough to go around. Close the banana back up as much as you can. Then take an 8 to 10-inch square of aluminum foil and wrap the bananas so they ae tightly sealed. You can place them directly in the coals or on a grate over a fire. The idea is to just melt the chocolate and marshmallows and warm the banana. Let cook for 8 to 10 minutes and check one of the banana packs. When the chocolate is melted and all gooey remove them from the heat. Carefully open each one and let cool for just a minute or two. You can enjoy these right out of the aluminum foil or place the whole packet on a paper plate, but you will need a spoon.
