So I guess you are getting ready to send your kids back to school or maybe they are in school already.  My older boy started last week and my little one starts this week.  Part of my “back to school routine” is creating snacks and lunches that are fast to make, nutritious, and delicious.  So today I’m sharing a recipe I love, love, love, not just because it is super easy to make,  but also because it is truly delicious.  My kids love it and I make it either for a quick snack or I add a glass of milk to make a lunch.

The recipe comes from a site I’ve been enjoying working for, www.readyseteat.com, I invite you to give it a try, you will find lots of other recipes there and a few reviews by me!

Peanut Butter-Apple Wraps

4 portions (one wrap each)

Ingredients

  • 4 whole wheat flour tortillas (8 inch)
  • 1/2 cup Peter Pan® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 6 tablespoons granola cereal
  • 1 large red-skinned apple
  1. Spread each tortilla to 1/2 inch of the edge with 2 tablespoons peanut butter. Sprinkle 1-1/2 tablespoons granola over lower two-thirds of peanut butter.
  2. Cut apple into quarters; remove core and chop into small pieces. Sprinkle apple evenly over granola.
  3. Start rolling each tortilla on apple end. Fold over 1 edge and continue rolling up, leaving one end open. OR, fold over both edges and continue rolling up burrito style.

Did I say easy and delicious?

Ok, ok, and just to make it more interesting, I would like to add a small giveaway right here.  Peter Pan peanut butter has introduced a new product: Peter Pan Natural Peanut Butter, with no high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, or preservatives.  I had the opportunity to try it and we like it a lot!  And today you can participate for your chance to win it and try it on your own wraps.

Quick and easy is always good! I can’t imagine how hectic it is to juggle work and raising a family, which includes packing lunches! My mother did this and I so appreciated it, especially more so now as an adult who sees how badly kids eat (potato chips for breakfast, really?!). Kudos to you for packing your kids lunches!

Oooh, that recipe sounds good! I like eating peanut butter straight off the spoon, or in PB&honey sandwiches :)

Wow — quick and easy is right — and so much goodness. Yum! I love to eat peanut butter spread directly on apple slices.

I love peanut butter. I eat it plain out of the jar, in a sandwich with honey on wheat bread or I dip celery sticks into the peanut butter.

Great recipe Silvia! Peanut butter and apples is one of my fave snacks. My husband teases me because I have a peanut butter problem…. I always think I need it when I’m at the store, and I always have one in the cabinet. There was one day a few weeks ago when he discovered I had 3 jars of peanut butter. When we went to the store this weekend, he said, “I think you might need peanut butter!” LOL
