S’mores are a campfire classic, but why not change up your dessert game the next time you go camping and try these decadent banana boats? All you need is a banana, some tinfoil, and whatever sweet or savory fillings you choose. Staying at home? You can make these even without a campfire: Simply place the prepared banana boats in a 425°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes.

This recipe was featured as part of our Step Up the S’more: 7 Ideas for Campfire Treats.

Instructions

  1. 1Slice an unpeeled banana lengthwise without cutting all the way through the top or bottom of the peel. Gently open it so it’s like a boat, then fill with the toppings of your choice, pressing them into the flesh without squishing. Wrap the banana tightly in foil.
  2. 2Cook in the coals of the campfire, away from any active flames, for about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
