“I based this on a barbecued banana recipe. That has cutting a slit along the inside curve of the banana skin, placing chocolate chips or peanut butter chips (or both) inside the slit, wrapping it in aluminum foil and putting it on the barbecue (or oven) for about 15-20 minutes. Comes out like custard. I've seen one similar recipe ( partial banana wrap) and several anana chimiChanga type recipes on the net. If I've repeated something from somewhere else, I'm sure I'll be told. This is a recipe for 10. Can be scaled up and down.”
