Quick and easy, this is a delightful recipe for a sweet snack or dessert, and one that is a favorite with Greek toddlers who are expanding their culinary experience. They can also help make them. Just provide a plastic knife and let your toddler cut up those bananas!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
- 1 package of frozen puff pastry sheets (2 sheets), defrosted, at room temperature
- 4 ripe bananas
- 1/4 pound (4 ounces) of chocolate spread (Nutella, Merenda, etc.)
- 2 1/2 ounces (about 1/8 pound) of ground almonds
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
Cut the puff pastry into 2-3 inch squares.
Cut bananas into very small pieces or slices (or let your toddler do it with a plastic knife).
Mix bananas, chocolate cream, and ground almonds to create the filling.
Place a small amount of the filling in the middle of a pastry square, and place a second square of pastry on top to complete the puff.
Bake on a lightly greased or nonstick cookie sheet at 375°F (190°C) for 40 minutes or until the pastry puffs up and turns a lovely golden color.
Allow to cool to the touch and serve.
