Fun for kids of all ages an apple peanut butter wrap is an easy vegan recipe that's sure to please even the pickiest of eaters in your family. Ok, maybe not to start with...
I have a confession to make. When I first thought up this delicacy my daughter looked at me like I was nuts. I, on the other hand, thought it was the most brilliant thing I'd ever come up with. What's not to love? It's warm peanut butter and apples without the mess of dipping or smearing the peanut butter on the apples. Don't you just love apples dipped into warm peanut butter at snack time?
Then, to keep me happy, she took a nibble off the end of my wrap and her attitude changed. Her eyes lit up and that slow smile that says "Can I have one?" spread across her face. All you parents out there know that look. Sweet victory was mine! I'd gone from nut-job to brilliant Mom over the course of one tiny nibble. Honestly, what more can a frazzled Accidental Vegan Mother ask for?
Here's What You Need For A Vegan Apple Peanut Butter Wrap
- 1 Burrito size tortilla (we like whole wheat or multi grain)
- 1-2 TBSP peanut butter
- 1/2 Apple chopped
- Fruit puree
Here's How To Make A Vegan Apple Peanut Butter Wrap
Core and chop half your apple into fine bits. (Put half the apple into a baggie and stick in the fridge for later if you're not making two wraps)
Spread peanut butter onto your tortilla. (For a whole host of reasons we like Teddy All Natural Peanut Butter).
Warm peanut butter loaded tortilla in microwave for 15-30 seconds. Just enough for your peanut butter to get warm and the tortilla soft and pliable.
Sprinkle chopped apple evenly across the warm peanut butter. (Add any optional additions now)
Roll up tortilla and enjoy!
If you're taking this on the road I suggest doing a burrito roll by tucking by folding up the bottom of your tortilla before rolling it up. This way none of the gooey peanut butter goodness will drip out and down your shirt as you nom happily.
One of the nice things about wraps rolled like this is how portable they are. So we often make them when we are in a hurry and heading out the door. Because, let's face it, sandwiches drip! And who wants sandwich schmutz all over the car?
