  • 3 medium bananas

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ½ cup chocolate-hazelnut spread

  • 18 butter cookies (sablés)

  • Pressurized whipped dessert topping (optional)

  • Toasted chopped hazelnuts (filberts) (optional)


  1. Leaving peels intact, cut bananas in half lengthwise. Brush cut sides with oil.

  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, place banana halves, cut sides down, on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes or until heated through and golden grill marks appear. Remove peels from banana halves; cut each half crosswise into thirds.

  3. Spread chocolate-hazelnut spread onto cookies; add banana portions. If desired, top with whipped topping and hazelnuts.
