The Sky is Falling Apples!! Wraps

Today, I'd like to share a healthy and delicious snack/lunch idea with you. Mr.B and I found the recipe for these, in his Disney Magic Kitchen cookbook. Since we had all the ingredients, we decided to make it for lunch. Both Queenie and Mr.B were so excited to help. They both took turns mashing the bananas and mixing them with the peanut butter. Then I let them go to town and make their own wrap. I've never seen such excitement and pride on their faces. It was so funny to see them concentrating so hard, while spreading on the banana peanut butter.


I can't say enough about this cookbook. It's a very great, healthy cookbook for kids. Most recipes use low fat ingredients and focus on using whole grains, fruits and veggies. Plus, it has awesome pictures of different Disney characters, for each recipe, which increases kid appeal. And the recipes (well the ones we've made so far) taste really good. The wraps were great! A slight banana flavor, mixed with the creamy peanut butter, studded with bits of crisp fresh apple. Mr.B inhaled his in no time flat and asked for seconds. Queenie took a different approach, first eating the filling, then the apples and finally the tortilla. Hey whatever works for her, right??


The Sky is Falling Apples! Wraps
from Disney's Magic Kitchen cookbook

Put the banana in the bowl. Mash with the fork. Add the peanut butter to the mashed banana. Stir to mix completely. Spread peanut butter mixture over tortillas. Sprinkle with apple. Tightly roll up tortillas and use a sharp knife to cut roll in half. Can be kept in refrigerator for up to 24 hrs. Makes 4 servings

Oh yum...even I will like this recipe. I had apples and peanut for lunch. Never thought of putting it in a tortillia. My grandkids will love it, too. You were able to get awesome pictures of your kids making them.
