Peanut butter-banana stuffed tortillasA Healthy Swap

Very ripe bananas are an excellent way to replace some, or all the sugar in a recipe. During the warm summer months our bananas often ripen faster than we can eat them. I find myself adding banana to all sorts of recipes.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Tortillas are one of my favorite quick & easy recipes using very ripe bananas. And my kids LOVE them!

Tortillas can be a fun way to add some variety to the usual lunch routine. Instead of bread, add your favorite sandwich fillings to a whole wheat tortilla then serve cold or toasted.

Less Sugar but Just as Sweet

Try replacing your kids’ peanut butter and jelly with a peanut butter-banana stuffed tortilla. The natural sugar in the ripe banana will give the stuffed tortilla that sweetness they crave from jam without the extra sugar.

Aren’t your kiddos sweet enough already? 😉

  1. OMG – I just overloaded on cute factor with a side of oh so sweet. But he did a great job. I think the next time you’re on KCTS Cooks you need to bring him as your sous-chef. And tell him this is what I’m going to be making for breakfast tomorrow (and he’s a Southpaw). 🙂
