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 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!
