Best friends – Banana, chocolate and coconut rolls
Meilleurs amis – Rouleaux de brick à la banane, chocolat, noix de coco et pistaches
Quel est le meilleur ami de la banane si ce n’est que le chocolat? What’s banana’s best friend other than chocolate? During my trip to France, I brought back some brick sheets. Here is some more info on those sheets. Like filo dough, they can be used in savory or sweet preparations.
Those rolls are ridiculously quick to prepare. No need to stress out if you have guests for dinner and no idea on the dessert choice. Kids will love it, and adults too. Melting chocolate on warm banana with a touch of coconut and crunchiness of pistachios is a always winning combination. Some flavors like banana and chocolate are made for each other, they’re like soul mate.
These rolls are quite large, so one would be sufficient for one person, or if your dinner was light, two rolls per person would work as well. As far as chocolate goes, you can use milk chocolate too, I personally prefer dark chocolate, its flavor is more intense and it contrasts quite well with the banana.
Ingredients for 6 rolls
- 6 bananas, not too ripe
- 2 tbs agave syrup
- 2 tbs coconut, shredded
- 12 tbs pistachios, chopped
- 6 tsp dark chocolate, broken in small pieces
- 6 brick sheets
- olive oil or butter for brushing
Peel and slice the banana in 1 cm slices. Grill them on both sides in a skillet or grill pan. In a mixing container, combine banana, pistachios, agave syrup, coconut. Mix well.
Take one brick sheet and place 2 tbs of the mixture. Add chocolate on top and roll the sheet. Brush with olive oil or butter. Proceed the same way with the rest of the mixture.
Pre heat oven at 390F and bake rolls in the oven for about 15-20 min until they turn golden brown.
