Nutty Banana Roll-Up

My 4-year-old requests muffins EVERY SINGLE MORNING. Personally, I am getting tired of making sure we have a constant supply of mini-muffins on hand. Sometimes that means I am baking muffins at 9:00 pm!

On a mission to find a healthy alternative to the muffin obsession, I stumbled across a recipe that sounded easy and yummy!

4 ingredients is all it takes! You might be wondering if chocolate chips are the best idea for breakfast. Well, I like to use Lily’s chocolate chips. They have 0 grams of sugar, less than 50 calories, and 1 gram of protein for a tablespoon. For comparison, the same serving size of grape jelly that could also be used in this recipe has 50 calories, 13 grams of sugar, and 0 protein. Not a real huge difference, but jelly definitely has a lot more sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Spread peanut butter on tortilla.
  2. Place peeled banana on top of peanut butter.
  3. Heat chocolate chips in microwave for 20 seconds. Stir and drizzle on top of banana
  4. Roll the tortilla up and slice!

So, did he ask for the muffins…yes. Did he eat the roll-up? Yes, after some negotiating. First, he gobbled up the strawberries and asked for more. I told him he had to at least try the roll-up if he wanted more berries. It worked! My husband and I both loved this easy and delicious recipe. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
