As it turns out, that song holds true for Banana Boats as well as actual ones. With one of these Peanut Butter Honey Banana Boats on your plate, life seems to good to be true. Probably because they taste way too good to be true.
So you may be wondering: How on earth do you make this thing called a Banana Boat? It’s actually quite simple.
First, grab a couple ripe bananas. For this recipe we’re using two. However, you can modify the recipe to fit any crowd.
Now you’re going to use a knife to gently make a slit the long way across the banana. Pell apart the peel, and use a spoon to scoop out a bit of the banana to make a little gorge. It sounds a bit complicated, but it’s really not.
You probably saw this one coming. Fill the gorge with round 1 tsp peanut butter and 1 tsp honey. This is when things really get fun! The honey combines with the banana and peanut butter to make everything super gooey and delicious. And, as you must know, honey is amazing with peanut butter and banana. In addition to that, it helps to sweeten the whole dish.
Idea: For when you’re entertaining, lay out a whole table of bananas, along with your desired filling (Peanut Butter and Honey in this recipe). Let people fill them up themselves, and then cook them right then and there so they’re still warm when it’s time to eat. Super easy and super fun!
At this point, you’re less than 10 minutes away from the most delicious snack ever. Hoooray! Wrap each Banana individually in aluminum foil and throw it on the grill. Grill on medium for 7-10 minutes, flipping halfway through. You’ll want to grill until they’re nice and mushy.
After that, you get this:
It might not look so good, but I can tell you with complete honesty that these Banana Boats are ab-sol-lute-ly delicious. Try them!!!
