PB & Banana Rollups ~ Not just for kids!

I must admit, ever since I was a wee tot, I have always loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches.  There couldn’t be a better match made in the culinary world than these 2 plain ingredients in my opinion.  With this slight spin on the traditional sammie, kids will be even more enamored by them, not to mention, they are easier and less messier for kids to eat without the banana slices falling out.

This is also where you can sneak in some good, whole-grain goodness into without them knowing.


1 ripe Banana
2 Tbsp Peanut Butter (any variety, whatever you usually use)
1 Whole-Grain Tortilla (6″ size)


Spread the peanut butter onto the tortilla like this:
