These ooey gooey sweet Campfire Stuffed Bananas are easy to make and will soon be your new camping go-to favorite!
After seeing Ree Drummond from the Food Network make Campfire Banana Boats, I knew I would have to give it a try. I go camping quite a bit, and these Campfire Stuffed Bananas are a perfect campfire dessert. When I made this, I was on vacation in Silver City, New Mexico. I stayed at a cute cabin that had a fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor firepit.
Ree stuffs her “Campfire Banana Boats”, (but I like my name for it) with graham crackers, marshmallows, caramel, and chocolate. Here I have veganized them. The photos were taken with my ipad. Normally I prefer to take photos in natural light during the day. Since this recipe was done over coals at night, there was only indoor lighting.
Even though the photos aren’t very pretty, this recipe is one of the best desserts I have ever made. I used pecans, dark chocolate baking chunks, and coconut flakes. In the future I plan on making one with peanut butter and brown rice syrup, which sounds like a good combination. This is one of those freestyle, make-it-your-own kind of recipes. Enjoy!
Campfire Stuffed Bananas
- dark chocolate baking chunks – 2 tablespoons per banana
- pecans – 2 tablespoons per banana
- coconut flakes – 1 tablespoon per banana
- Slit banana peel and banana with a knife. Stuff bananas with chocolate chunks, pecans, and coconut flakes.
- Wrap in tinfoil. Heat over coals for 7-10 minutes until chocolate melts and banana gets gooey.
Ooey gooey deliciousness!
Let me know if you make these and what you stuff your bananas with. I would love to hear how they come out.
