  • 4 bananas all yellow, without brown flecks
  • 50 grams chocolate bar Lindt 70% Dark Chocolate melts nicely and taste great


  • Heat the oven to 180° C.
  • Cut the bananas along one side from the tip to the stem; don’t cut all the way through.
  • Break the chocolate into small squares.
  • Stuff the bananas with chocolate pieces. You need only 3 - 4 pieces for each banana.
  • Bake the bananas in the oven for approx 12 - 15 minutes. (The time will vary depending on the size of your bananas so keep an eye on them. Once their skin becomes black all around they are done.)
  • Let the bananas rest for 5 minutes before serving (they will be extremely hot).
  • Optionally, serve warm bananas with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


Use only ripe yellow bananas for this recipe. Green or semi-green bananas won’t taste very good after you bake them. I used slightly under-ripe bananas once, and it completely ruined the taste of the dessert.
