5 Minute Baked Banana Bowls

5 Minute Baked Banana Bowls

Sweet chocolate, nutty, caramelly goodness that takes me back to being a kid. It is inspired by the foil wrapped baked bananas we had on very special occasions! Tucking into a bowl of this for breakfast is sure to get your day off to a grand start! Also perfect for snacks and desserts. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  • 2 teaspoons cacao or cocoa powder or 20 grams roughly chopped dark chocolate

  • Holy yum! I used to make baked bananas all the time in the microwave with all sorts of nuts and chocolate and good stuff! This recipe brings back memories!

    Looks perfect! Can this be made in the oven? How many degrees for how long? Any ideas, please?

    • Thank you. You want the bananas to cooked so maybe 10 – 15 mins at 175? Thats just a guess but it what I would do.
