First off, prepare your gas or charcoal grill to medium heat (approximately 350 F degree).


The bananas are fast to prepare. With your sharp knife, make a lengthwise cut along the inside curve of each banana. Be careful and not to cut all the way through, it’s better the leave half inch at both the end and the start.


With this cut, you are able to make pockets on your bananas. Bend the bananas a little bit and open the cut gently.


Stuff the bananas with chocolate chips, miniature marshmallows and nuts. As for nuts, both pecan and walnut are great choice. Of course, you can add any of your favourite nuts. 

Chocolate is the very important ingredients. Any good-quality chocolate will make your banana boats really tasty. Chocolate bars also work well.


While the bananas are well stuffed, it’s time to go grilling. Clean your grates with grill brush and lightly oil the grates.


Place the stuffed bananas upon grill over indirect medium heat. Put the lid down and let the grill do its magic.


Grill for 8-10 minutes or until the chocolate is melt marshmallows are softened. The bananas will turn black during the time of grilling, which is normal and you don’t have to worry about it.


Serve the grilled banana boats with ice cream or you can eat directly with a spoon.
