I feel silly calling this a recipe. So let’s call it a “recipe.” You’ll see why the quotes are necessary as you continue reading.
This “recipe” was dreamt up after dinner last night when Vishnu asked, “Do we have any dessert?” And before automatically saying no, I scanned the kitchen and said, “Wait, I have an idea!” The next thing I knew, the oven was pre-heating, ingredients were being gathered, and aluminum foil was being folded to create makeshift boats.
And talk about simple. I’m pretty sure most of you have these ingredients in your kitchen already. And if you don’t, improvise a little. The bananas are the only must have. Everything else can be swapped for something else. For example, don’t have or don’t like peanut butter, use almond butter. Or if you don’t have graham crackers, use your favorite nuts. Get as creative as you want! I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with this “recipe.”
Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Boats
2 semi-ripe bananas, peeled
2 tablespoons of peanut butter, divided
20 dark chocolate chips, divided
1 graham cracker sheet, crushed and divided
2 sheets of aluminum foil
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the banana in the middle of the aluminum foil (one per sheet). Crumple the sides of the foil until all four surround the banana and create a little boat. Top the bananas with peanut butter and chocolate chips. Place the boats directly on the middle rack of the oven. Bake 10-12 minutes. Carefully remove, top with crushed graham crackers and enjoy!
Oh and…HAPPY FRIDAY! Here’s to an uneventful weekend and sleep!
