Rolled Elvis: A New Twist On PB&J (Great for kids!)

The stereotype of making lunch in a hurry is throwing a PB&J sandwich in the lunch bag along with a piece of fruit, snack and a drink.  Imagine little Timmy’s face when he sees that,  once again, he’s got a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Unfortunately, my kids don’t eat peanut butter,  but I do! I became addicted to that heavenly substance during my second pregnancy.  In order to not get bored, I make a variation of PB&J every morning.  One day, I was out of bread and all I had were whole wheat tortillas in the fridge.  That morning, the “rolled” Elvis was born.  The rolled Elvis is really easy to make; and this lighter version hits the spot without the bacon.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Flour tortilla -regular or whole wheat-
  • 1TB Peanut butter or any other nut butter
  • 1 tsp honey or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Banana

 

Directions:

1.  Spread peanut butter on tortilla. Drizzle the honey or agave nectar and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Step 1

 

2.  Lay banana on center of tortilla.

Step 2

 

3. Enclose banana from one end of tortilla and roll it out (Think banana burrito). Cut it in half, then proceed to cut each half into slices.

 

Serve & Enjoy! **

Laura’s tips: You can use any type of tortilla (even Ezekiel brand).  If you are preparing this ahead of time and packing it in a lunch box, you may want to lay them on top of a damp paper towel.  You can substitute peanut butter for any kind of ‘nut’ butter.  Remember to add a wet wipe for your child to wipe their hands after they eat it. They might have sticky fingers! -But well worth it!
