Peanut Butter Banana-dillas – After School Snacks

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 3, 2010

Another favorite, 2 minute after school snack.

Peanut Butter Banana-dillas. We don’t do quesadillas because we don’t do cheese. But we can do banana-dillas because we do do peanut butter.

(If you can’t do peanuts or tree nuts, try soy nut butter.)

The rules.

  • Slather peanut butter onto half of a whole wheat tortillas.
  • Add sliced bananas.
  • Drizzle with honey. (Helps stick better!)
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Fold.
  • Dazzle the children, in less than 2 minutes!

These have also been called Peanut Butter Rollups. (Which I have written about before. But am sharing again. And yes, I’m borrowing last year’s photo. Mostly because this couch is super cozy and I’m not up for photographing at this hour. But this is making me hungry and might be in need of a late night snack…)

Do your kiddos have a favorite peanut butter, jelly, honey, tortilla concoction…do share!?!

we LOVE eating PB/J (or marshmallow fluff – sticky stuff!) and raisins (or bananas, apples, sliced grapes, kiwi, strawberries or whatever we have on hand) as a fun snack on the weekends. always creamy pb, never crunchy – the kids don’t like it. or sometimes they will put with their pb on tortilla, trail mix or popcorn.

My oldest love Nutella with sliced strawberries. My younger ones love peanut butter and jelly with banana pinwheels (rolled up tortillas and then sliced across). We do this for lunches, A LOT!

We do these for breakfast all the time. Delicious. I’m lazy in the morning, so we just roll up a half banana and head out the door.

YUM! I haven’t thought of this before. Now I need to find some cheap (& decent tasting) tortillas to try this on.
THANKS!

Just wondering if you heat up the tortilla at all before you prepare this? It seems it would fold easier…

I had something like this at a local restaurant and they use chunky PB, granola, banana, apple, pepper jelly and honey. Delish!
