MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 18, 2013

I was first introduced to this as a 12 year old camping with my Pioneer Girls Group and it became a camping must have. Our kids always made sure we packed the banana boat ingredients before we left for camping. Now they are on their own and continue this camping tradition with their friends and families.

This recipe originated from the Girl Scouts. I made this recipe some 40 years ago at Girl Scout Camp. The only difference, we put our foil wrapped bananas into a gigantic Bon fire...Fabulous!

Oldie But Goodie!! I have even done these in the micro, be careful as the nana gets hot. The skin will blacken. It is best to make a well by scrapping away some of the banana where you cut the peel opening. I use Mr. Goodbars cuz I love the peanuts!!!YUMMMM

I made these on three different camping trips. They were easy, yummy and a huge hit with the kids. I started bringing baby bananas for the smaller kids. An awesome recipe!
