Serves: 8 // Prep time: 15 minutes | Grilling time: 15 to 21 minutes | Special equipment: 8-inch-square metal baking pan

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 2 bananas

Dairy

  • 1 large eggs
  • .5 cups unsalted butter

Other

  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • .5 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Special Equipment

  • 8"-square metal baking pan

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 2 medium bananas, firm but ripe
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Prepare the grill for indirect and direct cooking over medium heat (about 400°F).

  2. In a large bowl combine the crust ingredients and mix well. Firmly and evenly press the mixture into the bottom of an 8-by-8-inch baking pan. Grill the crust over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until firm, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the crust from the grill and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. This will allow the crust to set.

  3. In a small bowl combine the butter and brown sugar. Cut each banana in half lengthwise and leave the skins attached (they will help the bananas hold their shape on the grill). Liberally brush the cut side of the bananas with the butter mixture.

  4. Grill the bananas, cut side down, over direct medium heat, with the lid open, until they start to soften, 2 to 4 minutes, without turning. Let cool briefly and then score the bananas into ½-inch slices, cutting through just to the peel.

  5. Fill the baking pan with 2 cups of the marshmallows, making sure they cover the bottom of the crust evenly. Next, scoop out and distribute the slices of grilled banana, followed by the remaining 2 cups of marshmallows.

  6. Grill the pie over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, keeping the temperature of the grill as close to 400°F as possible, until the marshmallows have puffed up and started to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. At this point carefully sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top and continue cooking until the chips appear glossy and melted, about 2 minutes. Remove the pie from the grill and let cool for about 5 minutes. Spoon into small serving bowls and serve warm.

Backyard Hit!

Tried this one out on a warm summer day and it was a hit. Doesn't take very long to put together or grill. I've had several requests to make this again. Friends I have run into years later asked about the recipe.
