The Best BBQ Banana Boat Recipe

We actually posted a version this recipe a few years ago and the response was fantastic. You all loved how out-of-the-box this recipe was and couldn’t wait to give it a go. As banana lovers we make this recipe at every opportunity, not only for it’s wow-factor but because it is so darn yummy. 

Since it’s 2021 and we’ve expanded our Garden collection we now make this recipe on our reclaimed Kadai Grill. This rustic bowl shaped fire pit is ideal for keeping the chill at bay and also cooking up some delicious charred dishes. 

**You will need one banana per person and tin foil to cook.

Here are our favourite different topping combinations, feel free to mix and match to create your own ‘dream boat’:

S’mores: Chocolate chips, mini marshmallows & crumbled biscuits

Strawberry-Choc: Strawberries, Nutella & chopped hazelnuts

Samoas: Chocolate chips, caramel sauce & coconut shreds

Dulce-de-Leche: Chocolate chips, dulce-de-leche sauce & coconut

PB & Choccy: Peanut butter & chocolate chips

Honey-Ginger: White chocolate chips, honey & candied ginger

Banana Split: Chocolate chips, marshmallows & cherries


  • One Banana per person
  • Toppings of choice
  • Tin Foil


  1. Light your Kadai Grill so that it gives out a gentle flame, if you’re cooking on a campfire you can also place the bananas into the embers to gently cook them, it will just take a little longer.
  2. Take each banana in it’s peel, slice down the middle until your knife grazes the peel on the other side. 
  3. Choose your banana boat toppings, pack them down the centre of the cut of your banana. Wrap each banana in tin foil. 
  4. Place the banana parcels onto the grill and cook for around 5 minutes. To check if they’re ready, give them a little squeeze with some banana tongues, if they are still warm, leave them for a few more minutes. 
  5. Unwrap, grab a spoon and dig in!
