Banana S’mores

It’s crazy to think that summer is coming to an end.

I feel like here in Michigan we barely had a summer. We didn’t have too many super hot days{which I suppose I’m grateful for}, but normally that only means one thing… a terrible winter.

I don’t want to think about that. But, what I have been thinking about is getting my grubby little paws on a s’more. I remember seeing a tip somewhere online about roasting a banana instead of a marshmallow to save a few calories. Since I really do need to save a couple calories and I’m not allowed to have a bonfire this is what I did..

Banana S’mores

  • Graham Crackers {I don’t think there is such a thing as a “healthy version”. However, I compared the Low-fat Honey Maid to a store brand and the store brand had less fat, calories, and sugar- so I’d just take a look and compare before  buying}
  • Banana
  • Whatever kind of chocolate you like {I made this one time with a Justin’s Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup and that was divine. Also, I like this with a piece of regular dark chocolate, because in my mind dark chocolate is super duper healthy 😉 }

I just cut my banana into marshmallow-sized pieces and put it on a baking sheet. I broiled it for about 8 minutes, but kept checking it about every 30 seconds. I just wanted them to get nice and toasty and a little browned.

Then I put it between two graham crackers and a piece chocolate and was pretty much in heaven. The banana was warm enough to melt the chocolate and I didn’t even miss the marshmallow! Maybe someday I’ll be able to roast a banana over an open fire…

So- if you wanna hold on to summer a little bit longer, maybe you can try this recipe out. Let me know what kind of chocolate you like on your s’mores!
