All Recipes, Dessert, Super Easy

Banana S’mores

So I was browsing through my mom’s stack of cookbooks, trying to find some of the familiar dishes she would make when I was a kid, when I ran across this amazing dessert. I can’t remember which book I found it in, but the recipe was called something cheesy like “Party Boat.” I never saw anything like this before and it sounded more like a fun twist on one of my favorite desserts- S’mores! So I decided to make it and it turned out pretty darn delicious.

What makes this dessert even better is that it’s not really bad for you. A healthy dessert you say?! Yes my friends, you only use a few pieces of marshmallow and a few chocolate chips on top of the banana which makes this dish healthy, sweet and satisfying. 

Banana S’mores


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • A small handful of:
  • chocolate chips
  • mini marshmallows
  • Your choice of chopped walnuts, pecans, peanuts, or graham cracker crumbs
  • Foil

To Do:

Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees.

Using a knife, slice an opening along the top of the banana (like pictured above).

Stuff the chocolate chips, marshmallows, and nuts on and around the banana inside of the peel.

Wrap the banana in foil, sealing at the top and making sure the bananas stay upright. Bake for 10 minutes.

Now there’s a party in this boat- Enjoy with a spoon by scooping the  melty chocolate s’mores banana right out of the peel.

And now I can go back to my original intent- making some of my mom’s famous old recipes. Stay tuned for a mean recipe for pumpkin bread.  :)
