Easy Wrap for Lunch or Breakfast
This peanut butter and jelly with banana wrap is great for those kids who aren’t into meat, but need a little protein and fat to get through the day. As a wrap it is a more exciting version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! It makes a great breakfast or a snack, or even lunch!
This wrap is super easy to make and definitely falls under a toddler doable recipe. Since there are few ingredients and it is really easy to make you can’t go wrong. My kid loves to smear the peanut butter and jelly on.
The wrapper tastes much better warm, as the wraps get a little stiff and dry when they are cold. You could also roll it in some aluminum foil in order to keep it warm a little longer.
Peanut butter or substitute
Jelly of your choice, I usually go with strawberry and raspberry
Gluten free wrap
Again, I used Food for Life brown rice tortillas, because they are also egg free, but if you can eat eggs there are tons of choices. I think the wraps with eggs tend to be more flexible and soft too. Of course it is not vegan if you use a wrapper that contains eggs.
Warm your wrapper in a pan on the stove top. You want it warm, but not hot.
Lay the wrap out on the cutting board. If it is round, square it off before you roll it. Layer your ingrediets banana last to makes things easier. A little extra peanut butter helps the wrap stick together too.
Roll it up and close it with a tooth pick and then wrap it in foil. If you think it is too long to fit in your kids bag, cut it in half first.
For this wrap you don’t want to make it too far ahead because it is better warm and can also get soggy if it sits too long.
There are a lot of places peanut butter isn’t allowed these days so here are some substitute ideas if you can’t do peanuts you can often still do almond butter, or cashew butter both very tasty. If you cannot have any nuts at all you can always do one of the seed butters. Sunflower seed nut butter is one of the most popular, there are several brands to choose from.
Let me know how this works for you! It is lacking veggies so you may want to work that in as a side.
