2. Cut the banana

Lay the banana on its “back” and cut a slit down the curved length making a pocket. Do not cut all the way, just a bit more than the length of the chocolate bar.

4. Fire cook

Place the stuffed banana on its “back” near the fire so the chocolate melts with the heat. Turn over so both sides cook properly, it should take about 8 minutes.

5. Slice open

Slice open when the skin turns black and the banana meat becomes soft but be careful, they are very hot when they first come off the fire.

6. Decorate

Once it’s served and ready to eat you could sprinkle some nuts, seeds, raisins, coconut flakes or whatever you like on top of your dessert. And for an extra bit of fatty goodness, you could pair it with some peanut butter or vegan ice cream. Dig in with a spoon and enjoy!
