Bananas and Peppers

Nutella and bananas is a tried-and-true combination, but when paired with the crunchy texture and savory flavor of a wonton wrapper like in this recipe, they become so much more. Garnished with whipped cream and a little drizzle of chocolate sauce and you're in Nutella heaven. 

Ingredients

  • small ripe banana, mashed
  • 1  Tablespoon  Nutella
  • 13  wonton wrappers
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  sugar
  • Nonstick spray

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a tiny bowl, add some water. This is for sealing the edges of your wontons.

In a small bowl, add the banana and nutella and combine until smooth. Take 1 heaping teaspoon of the banana mixture and place it in the middle of the wonton wrapper. Dip your finger into the water and place along the edges of the wrapper (this will be the glue to seal the wrappers together). Fold the wrapper over into a triangle and place on baking sheet. Do the same with the rest of the wrappers.

Spray each wonton with the nonstick spray and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake in oven for 11-15 minutes, until lightly brown.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
