by

Enjoy this peanut butter banana roll-up as a quick breakfast, snack or even dessert.

 

Peanut butter’s protein and healthy fats make this peanut butter banana tortilla a filling breakfast. Banana can satisfy a craving for sweets and boost your energy. It also adds complex carbohydrates and some creamy sweetness. The ingredients in this recipe are budget-friendly and represent three of the five food groups, making it a smart choice.

Optional toppings include sliced berries, chia seeds or ground flax seed. Sprinkle in a few mini chocolate chips to turn this into a dessert that’s a healthy alternative to rich, high-sugar offerings, but still offers a bit of sweetness.
