Why I Love This Recipe

it is good

Ingredients You'll Need

2 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
¼ cup chocolate hazelnut spread
1 egg, beaten


Unfold the puff pastry. Spread the chocolate hazelnut spread onto the middle third.

Arrange the sliced bananas on top of the spread in a single layer. Bananas may slightly overlap.

Preheat oven to 400°F (220°C)

Cut out a triangle of the top right corner of the pastry. Repeat on the other side.

Cut diagonal slits along both sides of the pastry. Each will be around 1 inch (2 ½ cm) thick.

Fold over the top piece of dough to partially cover the top row of bananas.

Alternating both sides, fold the strips of pastry over the bananas, mimicking a braid pattern.

Trim the excess dough on the sides, and fold over the bottom flap.

Brush the top of the braided pastry with the beaten egg. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet for and bake 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
