Banana Boats

This is a classic camp recipe. It is easy and doesn’t take many ingredients. Enjoy some while spending an evening around a campfire.

Banana Boats


  • Materials for a charcoal or wood fire
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Aluminum foil


  • 4 bananas
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Prepare your fire so you have a nice bed of coals.
  2. Peel back one section of the banana skin, but leave it connected.
  3. Cut out a small V-shaped trench along the length of the banana.
  4. Put about 6 mini marshmallows and 10 chocolate chips in the trench.
  5. Put the banana peel back over the top.
  6. Wrap the banana in foil.
  7. Repeat with remaining ingredients so you end up with four foil wrapped bananas.
  8. Place the bananas on the hot coals for about 5 minutes, trying to keep the part up the banana with the trench on top.
  9. Let cool slightly and eat.

Serves 4.
