Time for some honesty …. this picture is not mine. I found it — and this recipe — on Pinterest, so I don’t want to steal the credit. However, as you will read, I gave it a little Laura spin.
This is a recipe for grilled banana smores. Bananas and smores….what’s not to love?! I don’t grill. That may have to be a first for another day. However, I do broil and bake. I figured I could recreate this pretty well in the oven.
I took two bananas (I was making one for me and one for E) and made a boat-like split in the middle. That had to be done delicately as it doesn’t take much to pulverize a banana. I had some leftover peeps for Easter that a tore up into mini-marshmallow size. And I always keep some vegan chocolate chips on hand for E. I stuck the peeps and chips into the crevice of the banana then wrapped them in aluminum foil. I put them in the oven and broiled on low about 5 minutes or so….just long enough to melt everything.
It was delicious! The banana flavor really came through after they had been heated. The only thing missing is some crunch. I think it would be nice to crush some graham crackers and sprinkle on top after they come out of the over. Yummy.
