These would make a great treat or dessert for anyone! Not just post-surgery people. You could fill these bananas with whatever takes your fancy but I chose almond butter, dark chocolate and unsweetened coconut. There is no need to add any sugar because the banana is sweet enough, in fact, you could even eat the warm roasted bananas on their own they tasted that good!
Roasted Banana Boats
2 ripe bananas
6 squares of dark chocolate, chopped (or use dark chocolate chips)
2 tbsp almond butter (or whatever nut butter you prefer )
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp unsweetened dessicated coconut
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (400F)
2. Cut out two large rectangles of foil and place shiny side down. On top of each of these, place a banana and using a sharp knife, cut it open length ways (but don't cut it too deep that it cuts through the opposite side!) In this hole you have created, place your fillings, pushing them deep inside the banana. Now wrap the foil around the banana, scrunching the foil together to secure, and place in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
3. Once the time is up, remove from the oven. Open the foil package- the chocolate should be gooey and melted, grab a spoon and enjoy :)
