Keyword baked, gluten-free
Prep Time 5minutes
Cook Time 12minutes
4bananas all yellow, without brown flecks
50gramschocolate barLindt 70% Dark Chocolate melts nicely and taste great
Heat the oven to 180° C.
Cut the bananas along one side from the tip to the stem; don’t cut all the way through.
Break the chocolate into small squares.
Stuff the bananas with chocolate pieces. You need only 3 - 4 pieces for each banana.
Bake the bananas in the oven for approx 12 - 15 minutes. (The time will vary depending on the size of your bananas so keep an eye on them. Once their skin becomes black all around they are done.)
Let the bananas rest for 5 minutes before serving (they will be extremely hot).
Optionally, serve warm bananas with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Use only ripe yellow bananas for this recipe. Green or semi-green bananas won’t taste very good after you bake them. I used slightly under-ripe bananas once, and it completely ruined the taste of the dessert.
