This is a super easy lunch that mixes up the whole PB and J sandwich routine. Don’t get me wrong, we do that a lot here too (try Crofter’s Jam – the jam is all fruit with no sugar added), but this is a nice change and my kids love ’em.
Ok this is really simple. I got this idea from Weelicous she is full of great ideas!
You’re going to start with a tortilla. You can usually find a whole wheat tortilla at the grocery store. The saddest part about buying wheat tortillas at the grocery store is that most of them have hydrogenated oils in them. I have found some at Costco that don’t, a multi-grain one that I don’t remember the name. Also I love the tortillas at Good Earth. I am sure you can find them without hydrogenated oils, just check the ingredients. If it says the word “hydrogenated” anywhere in the list, that means it has trans fats in it. For a good gluten free option use brown rice tortillas, just heat them a little before because they break a little easier.
Wow, now that we have moved on from the tortilla it gets really simple. Just lay it flat on your counter top or plate if you are more sanitary then me.
Spread peanut butter or almond butter on the tortilla. (I like Adams Peanut Butter because the only ingredients are peanuts and salt)
Place a banana on the end closest to you.
Drizzle honey and sprinkle cinnamon on the whole tortilla (this is key!)
Then roll the whole thing up like a cigar, not that you smoke cigars, but I can’t think of another metaphor to describe the roll.
I like to cut them in little bites.
Kids love ’em, and so do I!!!
