Campfire Blueberry Crunch Bananas

Serves: 4

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


4 extra ripe bananas
¼ cup blueberries
4 pecan shortbread cookies, crushed


Build a medium campfire.

Use a knife to cut out a 1-inch-wide strip of the banana peel almost the entire length of the banana. Leave the ends intact and the rest of the peel still attached. Cut a seam down the center of the banana for filling. Fill each seam with blueberries and top with crushed shortbread cookies. Tightly wrap with a double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil. Cook until bananas are soft and hot, 10 minutes. Serve.

About the recipe

Cooking desserts by the campfire can include so much more than simply roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Let heavy duty aluminum foil help you wrap up bananas stuffed with strawberries and Nutella to roast by the heat of the fire.

Bananas that are very ripe, especially those with a few brown or black spots, will soften faster and have a more pronounced sweetness than a starchy, immature banana.
