I don’t know about you, but the turkey n cheese and good ol PB & J can get old when packing lunches. Sure, pack them a couple times a week, but packing something fun, new and tasty makes the whole family happy. *Insert Banana Date Nut Butter Rollups*
The first ingredient you’ll need in this recipe is date paste. Yes- date paste, it’s a thing. I PROMISE it’s not hard to make. Making Medjool date paste takes less than 5 minutes and can stay fresh in your fridge for up to a month! The options are endless on how to use this yummy, jelly-like, paste!
Makes: 1 rollup (double or triple as needed)
Time: 5 minutes (takes additional 5 minutes for Medjool Date paste)
1 whole wheat tortilla
2 Tbsp Nut Butter (almond, peanut, whatever your favorite is)
2 Tbsp Medjool Date Paste
1.) Prepare Medjool date paste per above recipe.
2.) Lay tortilla on flat surface and spread nut butter on a 3rd of the tortilla (see above photo).
3.) Spread date paste next to nut butter on middle of tortilla.
4.) Place banana next to the nut butter and date paste and roll from side to side until tight wrap is created.
5.) Press firmly to make sure nut butter and date paste have adhered to the banana and tortilla. Cut in half or pinwheels and serve with veggies and more fruit, if desired!
