When your stomach is growling for lunch and your pantry is nearly bare, I bet you can still rummage up the ingredients for this satisfying wrap. Oh, sure, you're thinking it's just a hum-drum peanut butter sandwich — might as well make your standard PB&J — but this is not the case. Diced bananas sweeten the situation and a big handful of granola adds that textural crunch that so many peanut butter lunches are missing. What seals the deal, though, is that this wrap is quickly seared in a skillet, which browns and crisps up the outside and warms up the inside so the peanut butter begins to melt and become wonderfully gooey. Yup, this is far from your average peanut butter sandwich — and it takes no more time to make.
A Quick & Easy Lunch Wrap for Kids and Adults
This is a lunch that's sure to please the whole family. It has the elements kids love, but feels like a jazzed-up version of other peanut butter sandwiches, which is sure to make the adults in your household happy. It's the kind of thing that can come together in minutes, immediately after you realize it's 2 p.m. on a Saturday and you've all forgotten to eat lunch — just double, triple, or quadruple the recipe as needed. And while warming the wrap in a skillet makes it extra special, it's equally tasty left cold, so that it can be packed up and taken on the run, whether to the office or to school.
Peanut Butter, Banana, and Granola Wrap
1 (8- to 10-inch) whole-wheat tortilla
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 small banana, peeled and diced
2 tablespoon granola
1 teaspoons honey
Spread the peanut butter evenly on the tortilla, leaving a 1-inch border. Sprinkle the diced banana and granola evenly over the peanut butter, then drizzle with the honey. Tightly roll up the tortilla like a burrito (see How To Wrap a Burrito).
Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Brush both sides of the wrap with a little olive oil. Place the wrap in the pan seam-side down and cook until golden-brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until the second side is golden-brown, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from the pan, cut the wrap in half on an angle, and serve.
- If you'd rather pack up the wrap for school or work lunch, just skip warming it in the skillet.
