Campfire Muesli & Banana Boats

There’s nothing quite like sitting around the campfire on chilly winter nights. Whether it be camping or in your own backyard. 

We grew up on marshmallows toasted on the fire, but these days we love a healthier alternative. So save yourself some processed sugar intake, try one of these campfire muesli & banana boats. They’re warm, soft & gooey with that crunch on top. No one will even notice the marshmallows are missing!

  • Bananas
  • Muesli (2 tablespoons for each banana)
  • Maple syrup (1-2 tablespoons for each banana)
  •  Cacao powder (1 teaspoon for each banana)
  • Dark chocolate chips if you want a melty chocolate hit 
  • Aluminium foil
  • Aluminium tray



To prepare the bananas, first slice the length of each banana curve with a knife. You should be basically cutting off the skin and not so much the fruit inside.

Scoop a little bit of the banana with a spoon. We are not going to use the scooped banana for this recipe so you can eat it.

Place your bananas on a aluminium disposable bbq tray with the cut laying upright resembling a boat. Fill the middle of the banana with your handmade or shop bought muesli.

Sprinkle the cacao powder on top and drizzle the whole mixture with one spoon of maple syrup for each banana.

Wrap the entire aluminium tray in foil to seal the dish and bring it to your campfire. Set it above the fire on a rack or on the side around and close the fire, not directly on the fire.

The bananas will cook slowly for 15 minutes or until the banana is soft and cooked. Their skins will turn dark. Check your bananas frequently because depending on the how strong your fire is they might take less time to be ready.

Once ready, take the aluminium tray out of the rack and serve the bananas immediately.
