The roar of the campfire is beckoning us on these warm summer evenings! So what about indulging in a sweet, gooey mouthful of banana heaven! Everyone will be amazed at this delicious treat! No campfire? No worries – works in the oven too!

Gather and Prepare:  Pre-heat oven at 400 F. or glowing ambers of campfire 

-One ripe yellow banana – wash with skin intact and then place banana, with the curve of the banana against the chopping board, then use a sharp knife to create a deep slit from stem to end without cutting through the bottom skin of banana.


Open the banana slit wide enough to fill it with the following:

  • 7-10 mini vegan marshmallows (found in green organic section of Super Store)
  • ½ tBsp of mini non-dairy chocolate chips (found in green organic section of Super Store)
Wrap stuffed banana in tin foil (shiny side inward, and twist foil at each end of banana).

Place in 400F oven (or on glowing ambers of campfire) for ~10-15 mins to make marshmallow-chocolate mixture melt and become gooey. 

Carefully remove from oven or campfire and open tin foil wrapper so it forms the “bowl” and serve immediately – warning contents may need to be tested so heat is safe for consumption.

Ahh so simple and delicious – what a great way to have some fun with fruit! Enjoy!
