Quick-Prep Grab and Go Banana PB&J Wraps

Banana PB&J Wraps

It’s back-to-school time! This may mean your family is shifting from easy summer days to the rush of the bus schedule and the school bell. Courtesy of Catherine Murray at our sister publication, Ohio Cooperative Living, we’re excited to share her “Grab and Go” recipe for Banana PB&J Wraps. 

Spend a Sunday afternoon with your kids prepping these wraps. Set it up as an assembly line — you’ll have fun and be set for a few days of the coming week. With this advance work, these wraps are the perfect solution to a rushed morning, a cure for a “hangry” kid who needs a pick-me-up after a long day at school, or an eat-in-the-car snack on the way to an after-school activity. We hope this delightful recipe helps you ease back into your school routine. 

Prep: 5 minutes | Servings: 2

1 8-inch flour tortilla 

1 ounce cream cheese 

2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter 

1 tablespoon jelly or jam of choice 

1 large banana, peeled 

Warm up flour tortilla in microwave for 10 seconds to make it easier to roll without cracking. Spread cream cheese evenly over half of the tortilla (to the edges). Spread the peanut butter on the other half (to the edges). Spoon and spread jelly down the middle, then place banana on top. Roll up tightly and seal. Cut in half lengthwise to share. Off you go with a tasty and filling snack! Store in foil, plastic wrap, or food storage containers in the fridge for up to three days. 

Note: Adjust measurements to your liking — you know your perfect PB&J ratio! Switch out the peanut butter for almond butter or sun butter if you prefer.
