Peanut Butter Banana Roll-ups

Peanut Butter & Banana Roll-ups // shutterbean

Is this indulgent or healthy? I’m not quite sure!

What we have here is a flour tortilla with a good/even smear of chunky (or die!) peanut butter. We add a banana to the top and roll it up to make a burrito. Then we cut the roll-up into pieces and move ourselves to the couch and watch really bad/indulgent TV.  Say Yes to the Dress? Maybe? (She should have picked the beaded bodice!) Add some nutella to the mix or COOKIE BUTTER and we’re on Team INDULGENT. You might as well put on the Housewives. We’re going in for a marathon.

But then maybe you’re in the mood for it to be healthy? Fiiiiiine. Use a whole wheat tortilla or better yet-make it SPROUTED and we’ll watch Man vs. Wild or some other Discovery Channel program. Put some chia seeds in there already! It’s vegan, gosh.

    Ha! I love it. I’d say it’s healthy-ish. 😉

    PB + bananas = match made in snack heaven.

  • Baily Hollen

    I make this snack sometimes as well. To add a little bit extra crunch (and indulgence) I add a little bit of granola as well. Extra crunchy goodness!! Pretty much anything that contains peanut butter, I’m sold!

    I used to make these for my daughter when she was about 2 and was missing a few teeth 🙂 And then I’d eat most of them! LOL so good!

      Can you believe Cooper won’t eat them? Kid doesn’t like peanut butter. I don’t know where he gets it…

      • Nancy @ Yummy Reads

        My boyfriend doesn’t like peanut butter! Apparently, he “doesn’t like the texture”. It drives me nuts because all I want to do is bake a peanut butter dessert for him (ie. me), but I can’t because he wouldn’t like it.

          Casey isn’t so into peanut butter either! So I know where you’re coming from!

  • Katrina @ WVS

    Such a fabulous snack! My momma used to make me these in my lunch 🙂

  • Lindsay

    I say use a sprouted tortilla and call it breakfast!

  • Jill

    My kid does not like peanut butter either….sometimes I wonder if she was switched at birth????!!!

  • Norma | Allspice and Nutmeg

    I love this. A quick healthy, portable snack.

  • Emily

    I do this with Nutella! Except I’ve never thought to slice it up first, and the banana never stays in place as I bite into it. Duh! This is much smarter.

  • Abby

    Tracy, you make me laugh (“She should have picked the beaded bodice”)! My favorite is watching in horror when brides pick the see-through Pnina Tornai bustier.

    • Tracy

      That show captivates me. What can I say??! My father in law calls it “Say No to the Show!”

  • Carrie

    Ahh, just go ahead and throw in a few mini chocolate chips. You know you want to. 😉

  • Little Gray Pixel

    Put some chia seeds in there!

    I’m borrowing this phrase indefinitely as a euphemism for forcing something to be healthful.

  • Traci

    I’d call it healthy. And I’d for sure add some chia seeds!

  • Amy

    Love the fact that my boyfriend isn’t as into PB as I am – more for me mwahahaha!
    This looks like the perfect post run snack. As in post run, pre-couch and trashy TV session. Thanks Tracy.

  • Chris

    Dip in or drizzle on a little melted chocolate … Oh. My. Goodness.
    Just sayin…

  • Shireen L. Platt

    I think my hubby will be in heaven if I make these!

  • Lynn @ The Actor’s Diet

    My mom used to make me something similar to this when I was little, except with very thin pancakes – but not crepes (there were no crepes or tortillas in my Chinese-American household).

  • 3girls1apple

    hahaha! Vegan? Yes!!! This looks yummy…

  • hellywelly

    I love this snack too! I like a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon on mine. And I like heating the tortilla just a bit. Yum!

  • Sarah

    I think you just showed me my new favorite snack. I ate it as my mid-morning snack at work today (that’s a thing, right?) and I have to say, I’m pretty sure I’m hooked!

    Hi Tracy,

    I have loved all these new healthier posts. I was listening to your podcast, episode: Devil with a Blue Dress On, and I just wanted you to know. I do like these healthier posts and I especially love these snacks posts, too! They give me more inspiration for my snacks. I don’t normally comment and read your blog in feedly, so I just save the recipes I like. I’m just starting out blogging and comments mean so much to me and I see you as such a big blogger that I figure you get enough comments you probably don’t need another one to read. I just wanted to come on here to stay this recipe is so yummy and I’m loving this new direction!

    Love ya, Tracy!
