Oven Baked Banana Boat

There hasn't been much cooking in the kitchen lately. Cold and Allergies have arrived and I've been taking care of the family so in other word I haven't had much rest. Been up most of the night with very little sleep and up very early to get daughter off to school. Mummy's don't get to rest...

Anyway, I've made this with the kiddies 2 months ago and didn't get to post it. They wanted to roast some smores. We had the chocolates and the marshmallows except for the graham crackers. What we did have was some bananas. I remember watching pioneer woman's episode when they made a banana boat while camping so we did that instead. It's really quite easy....

















This is my sweet boy's boat. After I've finished slicing the banana through the center not going all the way through, he stuffed it with dark chocolate morsels and marshmallows.

















This one's his sissy's, you basically add how much you want really or whatever you like in it. Like peanut butter, peppermint, caramel and so on.

















Wrap them in aluminum foil and bake at 350F for about 10 minutes. Get your spoon ready and enjoy! I don't have a photo after it was baked kiddos were too excited to eat them! : )

  1. Mmm.. very nice! I like this idea and I must try it. I think it is a big hit for the children too!

  2. This is kind of nostalgic for me. I used to make versions of these very often back in the 1980s - although I don't think we called them boats (good name, though). I don't think I ever added marshmallows, but that's a great idea. I must admit that I used to add a little rum quite often, but then I am an adult (in some ways).

    1. Sounds nice with rum. I usually cut them in half and sprinkle it with cinnamon and brown sugar and grill it. And I often feel like I'm still a kid as well : ) Lol

  3. Hello!

    This isn't nostalgic for me, as I come from a different place, but I've seen similar things all over the internet and decided I'd try them one day. Yours looks really delicious. And we love marshmallows :).

    Nice to find you.
    Cheers,
    Miriam.
