Jailhouse Rockin' Banana Boats

Jailhouse Rockin' Banana Boats

This recipe came to me when I was out “repurpose”- shopping for some interesting plates for my food photography.  I saw these bright yellow banana boats for $2.50 and immediately thought of Elvis and his PB&Banana Sandwiches.  So…if Elvis were alive and he was living Paleo-style, then this would be his dessert!!
