Banana S’mores on the Grill

This is the best dessert to prepare on your bbq, banana s’mores on the grill! So easy to do and they are served inside the banana skins themselves. Just throw them on and use bananas instead of graham crackers to make this unique smores dessert on the barbecue for the summertime or really all year long.

Banana S’mores on the grill

OK…are you ready for this??!! I mean you will never look at a BBQ the same way, and you will get TONS of compliments when you add this to your next barbeque get together, seriously! These banana smores are the perfect treat during the summertime and an easy way to make dessert on the barbecue. (affiliate links present)

Banana S’mores

You are probably used to baking with very ripe fruit if you are going to bake something like our cake mix banana bread with them or something. This one is different where you want them to stay a bit firmer or the texture is just off. Instead use very yellow with maybe just a bit of brownish on the edges.

  1. Bananas – ripe, not green, but barely brown
  2. Mini marshmallows
  3. Chocolate chips
  4. You could crush and sprinkle a bit of graham cracker crumbs on top if you wanted to

Smores in the Oven are probably the most delicious, chocolaty, ooey gooey and healthy (it is right, it starts with bananas after all) dessert you cook right on your BBQ after all the meat is done!

Banana S’mores Boat

This is how easy these grilled bananas are to make with very little prep work, are cheap and delish. If you are not grilling anything beforehand, set grill to medium. You could make these in an oven at 400 degrees too. You don’t want high heat. Low and slow just to soften and melt all the ingredients is all you need.

To keep them set up straight and not falling over you can make a sort of boat out of aluminum foil. Or wrap the banana in foil (but it won’t get the top brown that way), or use a small 8×8 pan.

  • Just slice the banana lengthwise and squeeze the ends so that it opens up a bit. It is best to find ones that are already slightly brown and softer to do this.
  • Push the semi sweet chocolate chips down into the bottom of the bananas
  • Then push small marshmallows down on top of those.
    • If you are a nut lover then put a layer of crushed peanuts, walnuts, or almonds in between or on top.
    • Some like a bit of peanut butter inside too
  • Put on the BBQ after your meats are done. That way the heat has died down. Wait until they get really warm and start to brown…and everything melts.
  • Serve right in their own skins. Give guests a fork and you will be the hit of the party I tell you!

We do a lot of BBQing and adding desserts to the grill. Just seemed like a natural progression over the years. I hope you like the banana s’mores here. As far as that is concerned, here are some more barbeque desserts we’ve made also that are yummy!

Banana Smores on the Grill

Can you make smores over a charcoal grill?

You can!! If you use a piece of foil over white coals once they have cooled down you can layer your grahams, marshmallows and chocolate piece until it melts. OR make our banana s’mores! We will show you how to make them that way in this post here. Easier and better made right inside the peel.

Is S’mores an American thing?

Pretty sure it is. If you look up it’s origin it started with the Girl Scouts actually in the 20’s and took off from there. It is hard to think of a campfire without this classic dessert right? From there people have been using the same 3 ingredients to make all other kinds of s’mores desserts like our banana version here.

How to do s’mores without fire?

This way technically isn’t a fire if you are using a gas grill or coals that no longer have a flame really. Another way if you are at home is to make our smores in a jar. Now those are fun using cake mix and made in individual servings using mason jars. Nutrition facts are listed below but only account for what is listed below.

Yum! We made these as a kid and called them banana boats. My husband is British, and we are just about to have our first baby-- we were talking about how we wanted to take this little guy camping, and I said let him make s'mores-- and my husband had never heard of them! I couldn't believe it. What a sheltered childhood he must have had. Visiting from SITs :)
