Looking for lunch ideas? Peanutty Apple Wraps make a great sandwich alternative to peanut butter and jelly. Once upon a time I was the mother of a VERY picky eater; technically I still am the mother of a very picky eater that challenges me every day. As a result, and like other parents of pick eaters, I have had to get creative with the food menus that we serve. She has never been big on eating regular sandwiches, which especially made packing the lunchbox both tricky & interesting.
Here is one recipe that I still love and has worked for a season of ‘pickiness’.
Peanutty Apple Wraps by Jodie Fitz
2 tablespoons reduced fat peanut butter
1 teaspoon honey
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 medium apple
Whole Grain wrap (try the FlatOut® Brand Wraps ~ they are delicious)!
Prepare the apple by washing, peeling and coring it. Either slice the apple into thin slices (my children’s favorite) or place the apple into a mini food processor to chop (my personal favorite). If you chop the apple in a mini food processor stir the cinnamon into the apple. If you slice the apple, simply add the cinnamon into the peanut butter spread. Create the peanut butter spread my stirring together the honey and peanut butter.
Spread the peanut butter mixture onto the wrap, add the apples and fold like a burrito. It’s a great lunch alternative or healthy breakfast option.
Peanut allergies: Replace the peanut butter spread with the following spread; 1 tablespoon of whipped cream cheese, 1 tablespoon vanilla low fat yogurt, 1 teaspoon honey and 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract.
