Introduction: Banana Burrito

A Banana Burrito is a simple variant on the classic banana sandwich. Its a healthy snack and is especially convenient during the morning rush.

What I like best about using the wrap is that everything is contained so that you can take it in the car even eating it with one hand. Kids like it because it tastes good and is fun to eat, moms like it because its cheap, easy and healthy.

Step 1: Gather the Ingredients

Banana (half or whole depending on the size of your wrap)
Peanut Butter
Honey
Tortilla Wrap
Flaxseed

Peanut butter packs a lot of sugar but also a lot of protein, you can use natural peanut butters or alternatives like almond butter to get around the sugar and hydrogenated oils. Use whole wheat wraps to boost your daily grain intake and sprinkle flaxseed to get a jolt of Omega-3 fatty acids. The banana is a great source for vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium.

Step 2: Warm Up the Wrap & Honey

To make them easier to manipulate, heat the wrap and honey in the microwave for 15 seconds. Save a step by heating them together.

Step 3: Pile on the Filing

Lay down a swath of peanut butter covering the whole wrap, scrape a small amount on one edge to use as a glue to help keep the wrap closed. Place the banana in the center and drizzle the honey over it, lastly sprinkle on the flaxseed.

Step 4: Wrap and Enjoy!

To wrap the tortilla bring one side over the banana and fold the two edges (left and right of the banana) over top of the first fold. From there just roll the wrap shut and use the peanut butter glue to hold everything together. Enjoy it as a peaceful sit down breakfast or have it on the go!

I just made it but i changed it a little...
First i heated the wrap, then i added the spread.
Then a wrapped it with the banana and put it back into the microwave until it was reallly hot.
You have to eat it with a fork and knife though it is really mushy.

You can't actually digest whole flax seeds; they just go right through you. To get the health benefits of flax you have to consume it ground. I'm thinking that pepitas or wheat germ might be a nice add-in : )

Good ideas with honey and flax... but i have always had these using just penut butter, jelly and a banana... been doing it ever since i was 10 and im 18 now... it makes a really good breakfast. Im going to grab some flax tomorrow and try it this way.

You'll find flax seed whole or grounded at any health food store or supermarket. Such as "WHOLEFOOD".

At first glance it looked like a pancake with a banana on it getting attacked my an army of fruit flies - at second glance my mouth watered and my tummy started rumbling.

When I first saw the first pic, I thought there were bugs all over it! But later (after I read) I found out it was just flax... Looks good though!

Also, "Banana Burito" is a little misleading, every burito i've had always has beans in it. Change the title to "Banana Wrap" or something.

 if you dont want the flaxseeds, but still want the omegas, you could do what i do and mix flaxseed oil into the peanut butter. store it in the fridge like that.

My cousin and I make burritos out of pretty much anything except beans XD In my opinion apples or bananas and PB is the best. Many kudos for sharing this with the instructables world.

I remember something like this in a kids cook book except instead of peanut butter and honey it is just jam (mmm... strawberry jam)

Haha, not being mean, but in the first picture (in the thumbnail) I thought it was a banana with flies on it! But still, great Instructable, that actually does look pretty good.
