Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups

This might look like a burrito on the plate; but it’s really my Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups!  These peanut butter banana roll-ups are great for breakfast, a quick snack and work well in school lunch boxes too.  They are kid friendly, vegan, and can be plant-based depending on the type of peanut butter you use.  Look for peanut butter without added oils and sugar and you should be fine.  If your child is allergic to peanuts or nuts, try sunflower butter with your doctor’s okay.

These peanut butter banana roll-ups are part of my back-to-school lunch post which you can find here.  If you use these as part of a school lunch, put it together late the night before or even morning of.  We will use a little lemon juice in the banana to prevent browning.  Even with that, and with wrapping tightly in plastic, they will still brown if made too soon.

Start with a fajita-sized tortilla of choice.  I like a whole wheat tortilla for the extra whole grains and fiber. Use what works for you, including a gluten free or low-carb tortilla.

Spread peanut butter not quite to the edges. Mash one half of a banana and add the lemon juice.Peanut butter banana roll-up

Put the mashed banana in a straight line down the center of the tortilla.  Sprinkle your choice of granola on top.  This add a little extra crunch and texture.
