These mummied bananas were an easy and healthy dessert we made together. Just 3 ingredients (and 2 of the ingredients are fruit). And it’s something the kids can make too! The puff pastry can be a bit fiddly for little hands, but older kids (school age) will enjoy wrapping their own mummies.

A word of warning though – make sure you put the sultanas on AFTER baking. The first time we made these, I put the sultanas on before baking…huge mistake. Not only did the sultanas end up tasting like charcoal, they also expanded and jumped off the mummies! I think there’s still a burnt sultana in my oven somewhere…
