These Grilled S’mores Banana Boats are an insanely easy treat to satisfy any sweet tooth. Perfect for making at home or for camping!
I calculated that I probably waste about $145 a year in bananas that go bad before I eat them or freeze them…so black, there’s no salvaging them for even banana bread.
It seems like if I only buy two or three, they’re gone way too fast, forcing me to go back to the store. But if I buy a whole bundle…well…see above problem ^^^. It’s not that I don’t know of ways to use them, it’s that I’m not diligent in doing so. It’s the whole banana dilemma that I know has consumed the nation for years. HA.
I jammed mine full of semi-sweet chocolate and butterscotch chips, but you could use dark chocolate, white chocolate, coconut, graham cracker crumbs, nuts – whatever floats your banana boat!
can these banana boats be made in the oven?
Yep! These can easily be made on the grill, over a campfire, or in the oven. Directions are in the printable recipe card below.
No doubt with ingredients like these, those bananas will get used up more quickly!

Grilled S'mores Banana Boats
- 1 large banana
- 1 tablespoon milk chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon butterscotch chips
- 2 tablespoons mini marshmallows
- 2 tablespoons crushed cinnamon graham crackers
- aluminum foil
- For the grill: heat grill to medium-high heat. Peel the banana, slice lengthwise, and slightly open to create a pocket. Place on some aluminum foil. Insert marshmallows, chocolate, and butterscotch chips into the banana. Wrap the banana up in the foil and cook on the grill until everything is gooey and melty, about 7 minutes. Unwrap and sprinkle the graham crackers on top. Eat with a spoon.
- For a campfire: Keep banana peeled, slice lengthwise twice, and lift up flap of peel. Slice banana and add the chocolate, butterscotch, and marshmallows. Replace peel flap and wrap banana with foil. Let the flames die down a bit before adding the foil packets directly to the fire. Cook 3-5 minutes or until soft and melted. Carefully unwrap and sprinkle the graham crackers on top.
- For the oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel the banana, slice lengthwise, and slightly open to create a pocket. Place on some aluminum foil. Insert marshmallows, chocolate, and butterscotch chips into the banana. Wrap the banana up in the foil, place directly on the cooking rack and bake for 6-7 minutes.
