Fire Bananas

The trick to this treat is to not burn the banana! Let your kids’ creativity run while with the different topping options! Enjoy this whole-food, tasty treat alongside a crackling fire for the perfect camping dessert.


  • 1 banana
  • Various toppings: raw almond butter nondairy chocolate chips, cinnamon, pure maple syrup, raw sunflower seeds, tahini, chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, etc.
  • Optional: homemade ice cream or clean store-bought brand such as Vixen’s Kitchen


  1. Peel one piece of the banana peel down, but don't detach it. Slice the banana open and add any combination of toppings you wish! My favorite combination is chopped walnuts, pure maple syrup, and raw almond butter… yumm!
  2. Close up the banana peel and place near the campfire to warm up and melt the toppings. The amount of time you let it sit depends on how hot your fire is and how close you place it, so do your best guess. You want the banana to be heated through and any toppings to be warm and melty.
  3. Carefully remove the banana from near the fire, place on a plate, open up and enjoy with a spoon! Add ice cream to make a yummy cobbler-like combination of warm and cold!
