Ingredients

  • 1 fajita-size flour tortilla (regular or whole wheat)
  • 2 tablespoons nut or seed butter (such as peanut, almond, or sunflower seed butter)
  • 1 banana (the straighter the better)

Instructions

  • Place the tortilla on a cutting board. (If it's not at room temperature, warm it for 5 seconds in the microwave so it's soft and easy to roll.)
  • Spread the nut or seed butter on, leaving about 1/4-1/2 inches around the edges.
  • Add the banana to one end. Fold the tortilla over the banana and tightly roll up.
  • Serve, cut in half, or slice into rounds with a serrated knife. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • This wrap is best served soon after making, though if you want to pack it in a kids lunch box, you can either leave the wrap uncut or stand the pieces up side-by-side right next to each other (so it will look like you just cut through the wrap) to limit the air that touches the sliced banana.
  • Use a fajita-size flour tortilla so this is easy to roll up and easy to bite through.
  • Use any nut or seed butter you prefer.
  • Try to roll the banana tightly in the tortilla.
  • A straighter banana makes this a little easier to roll.
  • Serve with milk, a smoothie, or another easy side your kids like.
  • Know that younger kids may pull each one of these slices apart and eat them that way!
