I blame this baby in my belly for my out-of-control sweet cravings lately. Oh my goodness. All I want to do is bake. And eat. And than bake & eat some more… Aaaaand than repeat. Over and over. ACK! I must get control of myself before I end up like a certain pregnant-celebrity who shall remain nameless… but here’s a hint; she definitely isn’t going to be fitting in those ‘dukes anytime soon!
Anyhow, back to the delicious Nutella & Banana bites. I had been thinking about them for at least a week and ran the idea by a few friends to make sure it wasn’t just pregnancy cravings. The general consensus was that they did sound good! I had all of the ingredients in my ‘fridge so that helped push me to make them.
- 1 tube of Pillsbury crescent rolls (I used the Safeway brand reduced fat)
- Nutella (amounts vary depending on how much you want to indulge)
- 1 banana sliced (again, size of slices may vary)
- Cinnamon & Sugar (make your own mix or use premixed – doesn’t matter)
Step 2: Place a slice of banana on top
Step 3: Wrap them up! I wrapped them up sort of like a ravioli. I did not roll it up like a crescent roll normally is, though you could.
Step 4: Dredge in cinnamon & sugar mixture than place on baking sheet. Repeat with all 8.
Step 5: Bake according to the directions… I think it was about 350 for 13 minutes or so.
Step 6: Remove from the oven, let cool for maybe 1 minute and enjoy! Seriously though, they are best fresh out of the oven! But be careful with the super hot nutella inside.
They were SO good. Especially when warm. I’ve decided that the next batch will have strawberries in the center! Either in addition or instead of the banana. Oh YUM!
