Peanut Butter Apple Wraps

     I've been planning my daughter's Yo Gabba Gabba themed birthday party. I'm working on making a food in the color of each of the characters and I needed a green snack that isn't sweet. I saw this in the Cooking for Kids Bible that my mom picked up at a discount store one time. I really like this cookbook, because it has a lot of kid friendly, healthy recipes.
     The verdict? I really enjoyed this, but my daughter wanted to pick it apart and eat the individual ingredients which proved to be very messy. This may be better suited for slightly older kids, maybe in a school lunch box for something. Overall, the wrap was light but filling. I would definitely make it again. Here, it is pictured with the fudge peanut butter swirl muffin I posted last week.
     If you were wondering, I decided on a green fruit salad for the green snack. I'm thinking apples, green grapes, and kiwi. I might add some chopped banana in there too.

3/4 c peanut butter
4 whole wheat or spinach tortillas
1 large apple, finely chopped
1/3 c shredded carrot
1/3 c granola without raisins
1 Tbl toasted wheat germ (I used milled flax seed)
  • Spread the peanut butter on one side of each tortilla. 
  • Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/4 apple, carrot, granola, and wheat germ (or flax).
  • Roll up tightly. Cut each wrap in half.
  • Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
If you are going to use this for a lunch box, cut each wrap in half and wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
