  1. Leaving the peel on the bananas, slice each in half lengthwise. Smear the inside with peanut butter, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Place the two halves back together and wrap each banana individually in aluminum foil.
  2. Cook in the hot coals of a campfire until the banana is hot, and the chocolate has melted, about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the heat of the coals.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is how we do this: Peel back one section of peel and cut out a pie shaped wedge of banana. Sprinkle in chocolate chips and mini marshmallows, close banana and wrap in foil. Then cook it ...

My husband changed it by accident a turned out better. Instead of pb and choc chips he used an Oh henery choc bar cut in 1/2 lengthwise to fit into the banana . It was delish.

It was great! We had this for dessert after camper pies and made them on the hot coals just as directed. Delicious and simple, and other than the chocolate chips, good for you, too.
