Ingredients

Peanut Butter Banana Roll Ups

  • 1 (8 inch) soft tortilla
  • 2-3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 banana (see note)
  • optional: grated or finely chopped vegetables, fruits, seeds, coconut, granola, honey, ricotta (see note)

Instructions

  • Spread peanut butter evenly on tortilla. Add whatever mix-ins, if using. You can either spread on all the toppings in a uniform layer or line them up as you see pictured.
  • Place peeled banana at one end of the tortilla and roll it up! Trim the ends and slice into small pieces for young kids. If the individual pinwheel opens up, simply apply some more peanut butter to help it stick.

Notes

Avoid using over-ripe banana. Ripe but still firm one will hold its shape better.
Add newness and variety by switching up the mix-ins: 
  • Some great vegetables to try are: carrots, zucchini, cucumber
  • Fruits - mangoes, strawberries, apples, pears
  • Seeds - hemp, chia, flax
  • Ricotta or yogurt
  • Shredded coconut
  • Honey (NOT for under age 1) or maple syrup
