Ok, so the pictures look disgusting, but please trust me when I say this grilled banana was ah-mazing!  No really, it was rich and gooey yet healthy-ish!
I first saw THIS pin on Pinterest for grilled banana smores.  When we got the new grill and I decided I wanted to try it out.  Unfortunately, we did not have all of the toppings.  In fact, we didn’t have anything BUT the banana!  So I got a little creative.  I thought about what tastes good with bananas and came up with peanut butter, chocolate and cereal.  And the following is what I came up with!
I took a banana and made a little bed out of tin foil. I wanted to make sure the banana would lay properly and didn’t want it to flop around (that’s what she said!).  I then cut it in half longways to make room for the toppings. 
Next, I whipped up one serving of PB2.  I made it a little runnier than usual so I could pour it over the banana rather than spread it. I figured it was going to get warm and runny anyway!
Then came the chocolate syrup.  Problem was, I didn’t have any.  But I did have some Hershey’s Dark Cocoa Powder!  So I concocted a kind of chocolate syrup using 2T cocoa powder, 1.5T water, a splash of almond milk and a couple Splenda packets. I mixed it all together and it works great for a chocolaty syrup to pour over the banana!
Next, I closed the packet up and popped it onto the grill (at medium low heat) for 7 minutes.  I checked it at 5 minutes and it just wasn’t gooey enough. 
While it was grilling I measured out 1PP worth of apple cinnamon cheerios and  did my best to crunch them up with a spoon.  I got bored and quit because it  took so long, so that is why you see some whole ones! 
After 7 minutes was up I put the foil packet on a plate, opened it up and sprinkled on the crumbled cheerios. 
And proceeded to GORGE.  I’m surprised I had time to take a picture!  What a great way to end the 4th! 
PP wise, I wavered between 2-3PP so I rounded up to 3.
