Nut Butter and Strawberry Tortillas

I have a secret to tell you…

I’m kind of obsessed with tortillas.  Not really sure why.  But I love them with breakfast, lunch and even as a snack.  Now I don’t just chow down on a plain tortilla.  I need to add some fixin’s to it.  When I was pregnant, I would spread on Nutella and sliced bananas and pretend I was eating a crepe from a street vendor in Paris.  During my backpacking days, I always had peanut butter and jelly on tortillas…they just pack so well.  And here is my latest way to enjoy a tortilla with Miss Ava.

This is hardly a “recipe” but it’s that Back-to-School-time of year and everyone seems to be searching for healthy options for kids’ lunches.  I love to use fresh strawberries instead of jelly or jam because there is no need for that added sugar.  Plus strawberries are sweet enough just the way they are.

Nut Butter and Strawberry Tortillas

  • 2-3 Tbsp Nut Butter (peanut, almond, sunflower, cashew – take your pick)
  • 3-4 Strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 2 Whole Wheat Tortillas

Spread the nut butter on one tortilla.  Top with the sliced strawberries and add the remaining tortilla on top.  Cut and serve or wrap for lunch.

Thinly slice some strawberries.

Spread some nut butter onto a whole wheat tortilla.  Today I used Almond Butter.

Add the strawberries.

Top it with the tortilla.

You can cut them in triangles OR to get the kids involved, use a cookie cutter to cut the sandwich.

So cute, right!?!

These can be put in a container and saved for lunch or snack time.

  1. Oh, I love these! What a great idea – and I love that you suggest fresh strawberries instead of jelly or jam. Can’t wait to try!

    How do you get Ava to eat all your healthy preparations? My little girl (2) is just super picky (although she does reward my efforts sometimes!).

      Well, sometimes it’s a challenge and other times we are surprised with how easily she tries. We always serve her the same thing we are eating. We have a rule that she HAS to try everything on her plate – she doesn’t have to like it but she has to at least try it. And she’s usually surprised that she likes that green thing or whatever it is. And I’m not against making a deal….”You can have more pasta after you eat that asparagus”. I should write a post about this!
