Baked Banana Boats

Kids can make their own baked banana boats with custom toppings. We use different berries and honey or peanut butter instead of chocolate chips. These baked bananas are also good topped with crushed graham crackers or granola—whatever your family likes. —Rebekah Viers, Taylors, South Carolina
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 medium bananas, unpeeled
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/4 cup granola without raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 teaspoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • Cut each banana lengthwise about 1/2 in. deep, leaving 1/2 in. uncut at both ends. Place each banana on a 12-in. square of foil; crimp and shape foil around bananas so they sit flat. Gently pull each banana peel open, forming a pocket. Fill pockets with pineapple, granola, pecans and chocolate chips.
  • Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until chips are softened.

    This was served to us at a bed & breakfast but with only a little peanut butter as the topping, and served in a banana split dish. It was a lovely warm fruit addition and looked so pretty alongside everything else. Tasted like a warm peanut butter banana—how could you go wrong with that?!

    The recipe worked as supposed to but we aren't a fan of warm bananas.

    Our whole family just tried these for the first time and they were delicious.
