Banana Roll-Ups

These are surprisingly filling. This recipe makes enough for my family of five for one breakfast served with a glass of milk for each person, plus one snack.

1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter, if you prefer)

4 Tbsp chocolate chips

2-4 Tbsp milk

4 flour tortillas (white or whole wheat)

4 large bananas, peeled

Combine peanut butter, chocolate chips, and milk in a saucepan. Heat on low and stir constantly until blended and smooth. (Variation: Just microwave it for 40 seconds to a minute.) Spread peanut butter mixture on the tortillas. Place a banana on one side of each tortilla and roll up tightly. Cut each roll-up into 8 slices.

Variation: Use finely chopped dates instead of chocolate chips. If you have a food processor (which I don’t) it would probably work well to put the dates and milk and peanut butter into the food processor and blend it all together well to make a spread.

You can also add ground flax seed, coconut, other dried fruit, etc. Get creative. Play around with it and make your own spread!
