Peanut Butter & Banana Wraps

August 4, 2014

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter R and the number 2. Ha! I don’t have kids or nieces/nephews, or any young uns for that matter, but it doesn’t stop me from making awesome kid snacks…because they taste so darn yummy! I’ve been making these Peanut Butter & Banana Wraps for years. They are so good, even though it’s the simplest idea for a snack or dessert. They take no time to make and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already. Full of different textures, one of these wraps will satisfy your craving for something sweet. They’re on the messy side, but I think that’s the sign of a good treat. 🙂

Peanut Butter & Banana Wraps

So, how’s it taste?

Even though this is something you might find in a kid’s lunchbox, I have no problem making these for myself. Sometimes I use creamy peanut butter, sometimes crunchy, and sometimes almond butter. The crunchy peanut butter is a heftier wrap, so it almost works as a meal. The almond butter makes it a little more grown up, I think. I love all the different textures with the creamy peanut butter, chunks of banana, and bits of chocolate chips. The honey rounds it out with a different flavor of sweet and as you hold the wrap, it starts to melt and ooze out from the heat of your hands. This is the messy part, which I don’t mind!

Peanut Butter & Banana Wraps

I added the cinnamon to the original recipe and I love how it gives it a subtle spice. The wrap is a little hard to roll up if you get crazy like I do and fill it too much. (Which also leads to mine always being messy!) On the Betty Crocker site, a few reviewers noted they leave the banana whole and roll it up that way. That leaves me to ask “Where do the chocolate chips go?” because I’m not leaving those out! Maybe you could press them into the banana? I say who cares if it’s messy. Perfect excuse to lick those fingers and eat like a kid!

    This is one of my favourite breakfasts on the go. Or a snack. Or dinner. I’m not fussy 😉

    Such a simple, but super delicious treat. I’ve always loved the PB & Banana combo and have got to try adding a little bit of cinnamon. Gosh, I can pretty much tell by pure imagination that they are yummy 🙂

    I love these! They are one of my favorite snacks! For a long time there weren’t any good gluten free flour tortillas so we had to use corn tortillas…not so good…but we have some great flour ones we use now!

    These look great! I’m definitely trying them with Miss H! She loves PB and choc chips. (We are still working on bananas) 🙂

    You have me cracking up saying that you might find these in a kid’s lunchbox, haha! This looks exactly like what I take for lunch all the time! Peanut butter, bananas, chocolate chips, and honey are so perfect together all rolled up in a tortilla! I think I could also enjoy these for dessert 🙂

  • Kelly August 5, 2014 at 10:22 pm

    I love how fun these are! Chocolate, peanut butter and bananas are such an awesome combo and with some cinnamon sounds even better 🙂 Looks delicious!

  • Anne August 5, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    This looks amazing! It will definitely be appearing in my lunch box, even though I’m a teen… What can I say? 😉

  • amy @ fearless homemaker August 6, 2014 at 9:14 am

    YUM! This is totally my type of snack. Baby hasn’t really gotten into peanut butter yet (?!?!?!) but once she does, I’m going to be thrilled that I can steal bites of snacks like this. =)

  • Maggie August 7, 2014 at 9:42 am

    Great idea for breakfast or a post run snack! This looks really really good and healthy! Will save the recipe and cook for my boyfriend. He will love this one 🙂

    R2D2! (nerding out…)

    I am obsessed with bananas and peanut butter… Have been since I was a kid. I’ve never thought to throw them in a wrap, though. You’ll definately see me eating these around campus now!

  • Leah @ The Hungry Cowboy August 19, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    These are such a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

    Yum! My kids would love these! We make something similar with sunbutter instead of peanut butter, but I hadn’t thought of the honey, chocolate chips, and cinnamon additions!
