  1. Unfold the puff pastry. Spread the chocolate hazelnut spread onto the middle third.
  2. Arrange the sliced bananas on top of the spread in a single layer. Bananas may slightly overlap.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F (220°C)
  4. Cut out a triangle of the top right corner of the pastry. Repeat on the other side.

  8. Trim the excess dough on the sides, and fold over the bottom flap.
  9. Brush the top of the braided pastry with the beaten egg. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet for and bake 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
  10. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  11. Enjoy!
