Grilled Banana Boats

So we continued to work on making the office great this past weekend. I put together a white bookshelf that I think looks really nice against the light green walls. I filled it with lots and lots of books that I had laying around. I love to read almost as much if not more than baking. I love classics, fun summer reads, and mysteries. I love picking up copies of books for a dollar. There are a couple of great places around here to do that. I do that a lot before vacation and then I can leave the book for the next person that vacations there :)

We also hung up all the pictures, diplomas etc that were going to go on the walls. The next step is setting up my photography corner. We decided to eliminate one desk we weren't using and some chairs so there is more room. I have a bed in here for Ginny so she can work with me and the windows are open so the cats can look out.

So today's recipe is Grilled Banana Boats. I have to tell you that these are super fun... and really easy to make. They are also really tasty. We made them once.. and a few nights later Jim was like can we do those banana boats again?

They are also healthy for you, because most of the dessert is a banana :) I think that these would be super fun to make with kids at a BBQ.


Bananas (1 per person)
1 Tbsp of chocolate chips per banana
1 Tbsp of peanut butter chips per banana
1 Tbsp of mini marshmallows per banana

Cut 2 pieces of foil about 6-7 inches for each banana.

Take a banana, make sure and leave the peel on it. Cut a slit down the center of the banana with a sharp knife. The slit should go the whole length of the banana. Use the foil to make a boat around the bottom of the banana. Make sure that the boat will stand by itself.

Pry open the slit of the banana. Stuff the center with the chocoloate chips, peanut butter chips, and marshmallows. Put in as many as will fit. The more the better :)

Cover the bananas with the other piece of foil. Leave 2-3 inches of space, because the marshmallows will grow when you grill them.

Put the covered bananas on medium high heat on the grill for 8-10 minutes.

Remove foil and enjoy immediately!
