Fire Up The Banana’s Crispy!

by Tenina Holder

I have to admit that this recipe, whilst clever and easy, is not mine and full credit and a big thank you must go to my cousin the chef, Crispy Raykels of Rotarua in New Zealand. What is mine is the BBQ twist and the Rum Caramel Sauce. If you like crispy pastry, (pun intended Crispy) and you like sweet banana, gooey caramel, a few nuts and a lot of easy, then this definitely rates a mention on your BBQ this summer! Make ahead by a day and keep in fridge until ready to cook. 

Need

  • 2 sheets of thawed filo pastry, per serving
  • 300 g melted butter for brushing pastry (approx 8 servings)
  • 1/2 banana, per serving
  • 1 mini sized mars bar (or 1/2 normal size)
  • Sauce
  • 125 g unsalted butter

Brush melted butter on and between first 2 sheets of filo.
