nutella banana coconut pockets

The amount of recipes I have saved as bookmarks on my computer is probably a little bit insane. I even have them organized into categories. Yeah. But it does give me lots of options to chose from when I want to bake! :)
So, this time, I made nutella banana coconut pockets. I know, it sounds a little crazy, and you're probably unsure about how it tastes. Well, let me tell you. They're AMAZNG! Its warm banana and nutella goodness, with a little crunch of coconut. Heaven! 







Nutella Banana Coconut Pockets (recipe from Six Sisters' Stuff!)

1 sheet of frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
1 banana, sliced
4 heaping teaspoons Nutella
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 egg
1 teaspoon water
Dash of sugar
1 tablespoon roughly chopped chocolate bar
Nutella to drizzle on top
(although to be honest, I just piled bananas, nutella and coconut into mine! I wanted to make them chock full!) 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out puff pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Cut the dough into four large squares.
Place two slices of banana on one side of each square and then top with 1 heaping teaspoon of Nutella. Sprinkle a dash of coconut over the Nutella.
Mix together the egg and water. Brush this mixture along the edges of each square. Flip the other side of the square over the banana, Nutella and coconut. Seal the pocket using the tines of fork.
Repeat with the remaining three squares.
Brush the tops of each square with the egg mixture and sprinkle the top with sugar.
Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the puff pastry is puffed and browned. (Highly recommend baking on parchment paper!!)
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Once cool, drizzle warmed Nutella over the pockets, chopped chocolate bar, coconut and sugar.

Go and enjoy the yumminess!
