This dessert would definitely win Miss Congeniality, the poor guy isn’t a looker but he’s lovely all the same. It’s made up of 3 base ingredients, banana, peanut butter and chocolate – but other than that you can add whatever you want. I think mini marshmallows are pretty good in it but you might not, so whatever add things that you like. Or not you can just leave it be with the ‘nana, peanut butter and chocolate combo.
First things first you’ll want to slice that baby open. Cut a slit in the skin along the banana, pull it apart slightly and spread a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter along equally along the sides. You could use smooth peanut butter, but then you’d be a philistine and need to learn you’re doing spreads wrong! Saying that, sometimes if I really need to cut calories, or if I’m adding it to smoothies then I’ll used PB2. It’s only 22 calories per tablespoon compared to the 90ish calories in traditional peanut butter so that stuff’s useful.
Once you’ve got your peanut butter sorted sprinkle as many or as few dark chocolate chips between the banana flaps. Make sure you push a few down the sides in case any fall out during the cooking. Loosing chips just because bananas are a stupid shape would be beyond tragic.
Now it’s time to add your extras if you have any. I didn’t mention this earlier because I wanted to put of getting called a freak… I put sea salt on it. I’ve been called out on this before but chocolate and salt is fit! It’s not just me I swear salt and chocolate is a thing. If you’re still not sure just do a quick chocolate and sea salt Google search and then you can say sorry. Do you know what, I wont even make you say sorry because I’m the kindest person ever.
Before you stick this guy in the oven make sure you use protection. Wrap the whole thing in tin foil and be gentle with the little guy you don’t tip him or you might loose some chocolate. Place the banana into a preheated 180°C oven for about 15 mins, then open up the foil and cook for another 5- 10 mins to make sure you’re not swamped with banana juice. Be careful when you handle the banana or you’ll get burn by fruity steam. Finally, get a fork and eat up.
No recipe card for you because you’re not a baby. If you are a baby then well done on getting this reading stuff down, but still no recipe card and get away from the oven!
