Today I’m sharing these beyond delicious pie iron Nutella & Banana Biscuits with you. If you’ve been around for a while then you know that I have been sharing all kinds of camping recipes this spring! Be sure to check out Camping Recipes for all of our past posts and follow along for a new post every week until summer. Whew!! That’s A LOT of camping food inspiration!
Keeping your ingredients simple while camping is key! Simple and portable. I love bread in a tin because it doesn’t get squashed while travelling or in storage. You can totally substitute a loaf of bread for biscuits though!
I love Pie Irons for cooking while camping. We also call them camp cookers. It is essentially a cast iron sandwich maker that you can heat over the open fire. We use it year round and it works like a charm over the propane fire as well (whenever there is a fire ban in place). You can purchase a Pie Iron straight from Amazon (aff link) or find them at Canadian Tire or other outdoor specialty stores.
For this simple pie iron camping recipe you will need…
Pillsbury biscuit dough
Non-stick cooking spray (optional)
How to make pie iron Nutella & Banana Biscuits:
- Spray the interior of the pie iron with non stick spray.
- Layer 1 biscuit, Nutella, sliced banana pieces and 1 biscuit.
- Close and latch the pie iron.
- Cook over the fire, opening the iron to check progress periodically.
- Cook for approximately 5 mins per side depending on how hot the fire is.
Camp cooking essentials:
- Menu planning for camping is something that I always do to stay organized. Grab this free Meal Planner Printable to get started on your next trip.
- A Pie Iron Camp Cooker makes cooking over the open fire super easy. Check out these 20+ Pie Iron Recipe Ideas for tons of camp cooker inspiration!
- Foil Pie Plates make tinfoil packet meals even easier with the sturdy base that they provide.
- These Grilling Bags that I recently found are amazing! Simply add all of your ingredients to the bag at home then throw it on the campfire or grill when camping in the great outdoors. Avoid the grill bags with plastic windows, they melt (yikes!).
Tips for camping meal preparation:
- Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible. Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier. Trust me on this one!
- Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought.
- Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers (aff link). These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
- Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size ziploc bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
- Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy. These Cheesy Vegetable Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Tinfoil Packet Nacho Dip recipes are some of my favorites.
Cooking nice and slow and checking often is the best way to be sure that the biscuit dough is cooked through. They turn out warm, gooey and chocolatey – so good! Have you tried making these Pie Iron Nutella & Banana Biscuits?
