  1. Preheat oven to 210 C / Gas 6-7. Prepare a baking tray and two sheets of aluminium foil.
  2. Slice each banana half in half again, lengthways. Place 2 quarters of the banana in the centre of each foil sheet. Top each with 5 chocolate chips, a knob of butter and a pinch almonds. Fold foil corners in towards each other in the centre and wrap ends together in a twist.
  3. Place both foil packets on baking tray and bake in preheated oven for 5 to 7 minutes (chocolate should be just melted). Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


Get creative and make this recipe your own. You can add more chocolate if you're a chocoholic, or even a spoonful of Nutella®. You can omit the nuts or try different ones, such as hazelnuts or pecans. Have fun!
