This banana wrap makes a perfect breakfast on the go!

A while back, a Facebook fan sent me a link to the Mission Tortillas website. She had found a recipe there (it’s no longer on their website) that she thought would be easy to “clean up”. She was right. This Clean Eating Banana Wrap recipe is fantastic for a kid’s school lunch or a breakfast on the run. (Not bad for adults either!)

A banana wrap, cut in half and stacked on a white background.

In fact, it’s so easy, it’s almost not a recipe at all! And the possibilities are endless! I mean really, what can’t you put in a tortilla?

So if you are one of the few that can’t have bananas, think outside the box! Or rather, outside the tortilla? Try strawberries, apples and cinnamon, even peaches! You really can’t go wrong with this sort of thing. The sky’s the limit, so get creative!

What You’ll Need

1 large whole grain tortilla

ΒΌ cup nut butter (I used peanut butter)

1 medium banana

How To Make A Banana Wrap

Lay your tortilla on a flat surface and spread the nut butter over it, mostly in the center, but try to spread it as much as you can.

Place your peeled banana in the center.

Roll up your tortilla and slice in half.

If you need a great lunch box to take this in, I really like the boxes below. All the little compartments snap together, so it would be really easy to take different toppings and assemble this at work or school so your tortilla doesn’t get soggy between breakfast and lunch.

  1. Hello Tiffany!
    First of all thank you for everything you do! I am new to Clean Eating and need all the help I can get.
    I have a question… Did you use a different brand than Mission or did you make these tortillas? Just curious b/c I have been looking for “Clean” tortillas. Thanks for your help! πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – The ones in this photo I purchased at Trader Joe’s. They are a sprouted wheat tortilla. But you can certainly make your own as well!

  2. Catherine says:

    LOL My step-kids ended up not liking this (clean version and not clean version) but man I sure do! πŸ™‚ — I think most kids would love this, but mine (when they are with their bio. mother) aren’t exposed to fun things like this so they balk at the thought of it.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Catherine – Oh dear. Well keep trying! Kids have a way of warming up to “fun stuff” if given the chance often enough!

  3. I had this for breakfast this morning. Filling and tasty!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Paulissa – Excellent!!

  4. I like to make a version of this, and mash up the banana in a bowl first and sprinkle a little cinnamon on it. Then either microwave or heat the tortilla on the stove. It makes it all melty and gooey. So good!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jaime – OMG!!! That sounds AMAZING!!! I’ll be trying that VERY soon! Thanks! πŸ™‚

  5. Love these and I often add extras like ground flax or chia but also sprinkle some cinnamon on it or use dates instead of banana…or both :S
    thx
    G

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Giselle – I hand’t even considered using dates. What a great idea! Thank you!

  6. Yum!
    I often have a nutbutter sandwich on whole wheat bread, but this sounds like a yummy treat! I think I will try it for breakfast tomorrow.
    Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Trish – Great! Let me know how you like it!

  7. Hi again Tiffany!
    umm.. I ADORE your site! You have been so helpful and inspirational with cleaning up our lifestyle and getting healthier! Bravo!! Thank you Thank you!
    I just wanted to double check that this would be okay for a breakfast while we are taking part in the Sugar Free Challenge?
    Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lindsay – Thank you! I’m so happy my blog has been useful for you!

      So long as the tortilla and the peanut butter are clean (no added sugar, whole grain, etc) then yes. This is fine on the challenge. It will count for 1 of the 2 fruits in your day.

      Enjoy!

  8. Tiffany, your Mini Chef is such a cutie!

    I love these wraps πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tracy – Thanks! I adore that kid. He’s my breath, my heart and my soul.
      Enjoy the wraps!

  9. Jenn@slim-shoppin says:

    I’ve done something a little similar, but wrap it in foil and bake for about 10 minutes. The banana and peanut butter get all melty. I haven’t made it for a long time, now I will! πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jenn – That sounds yummy! Enjoy!

  10. Hooray! We bought some sugar free PB and are going to make the clean eating quinoa tortillas πŸ™‚ let’s see how my cooking skills size up with this one – wish me luck! We started the sugar free challenge a day late (silly Easter!!), but so far so good!!
    Cheers!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lindsay – Fantastic!!! Let me know how everything turns out!

  11. I’ve made something similar in the past except drizzle a bit of honey on it and some wheat germ.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lynn – Yum! Wheat germ would be a great addition!

  12. I actually had egg whites, hummus, and hot sauce all wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla this morning for breakfast!!! Will have to try this one soon!! Its perfect for a sweet treat if you add in apples and cinnamon. yum!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julie – Yes it is!! Hope you enjoy it!

  13. Tiffany, I just have to say that your picture looks at least 10 times better (yummier!) than “their” picture! πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amanda – Why thank you! That’s quite a compliment! πŸ™‚

  14. Michelle of Chellbellz says:

    Yummy I’ve done this with Strawberries when using the Biggest Loser cookbook. they use too many processed things in my thoughts though, but this one was “clean in my thoughts” never thought about bananas. can try this later on this week.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Michelle – Really? Biggest Loser uses a lot of processed stuff? That surprises me with Jillian Michael’s being a part of the team. I guess I never really paid much attention to what they eat. Interesting.

      1. ChellBellz says:

        I have to agree, they do use processed stuff, and I only use the clean recipes in there, like their sausage patties, and this wrap, you just have to twerk it a little bit to be clean in some cases, but some of the recipes aren’t that great you know. But I am going to try this one with the banana’s. I’m still looking for the wraps. when i pick up the whole wheat ones they have a ton of crap in it.

        1. Anonymous says:

          CB – Get the Ezekiel brand. Clean and yummy tortillas!

  15. I just made this and it was wonderful! I am brand new to clean eating and at first I was skeptical. But your blog has so many different recipes to suit different tastes so I know I can find things I like. Thank you for doing this!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashley – Welcome to clean eating! You’re going to love it! So happy you enjoyed my recipe. Let me know if you have any questions, I’m always happy to help.

  16. I am new to your site, and just came across this recipe last week. I have had this for breakfast every morning since, and it is my favorite. So easy, quick, and great to take on the go! Thanks for posting!

    Crystalle – It is!

  19. graciouspantry says:

    Lisa – Yum!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Algnuoy – Peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, the list goes on…

  20. graciouspantry says:

    Janice – I’m stumped. I can’t think of a single thing. Try bread, but then it would just be a sandwich. Hmmm…. Sorry! Wish I could be more help!

  21. graciouspantry says:

    Cori – Oh yum!

  22. graciouspantry says:

    Stephanie – Oh yum!

  23. I’ve been doing this for kids lunch using whole wheat hot dog buns! We call it a banana dog

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Peggy – Haha!! LOVE it!!!

  24. graciouspantry says:

    Ferraro – Definitely! I like the Alvarado Street Bakery brand tortillas.

  25. Mandasue1976 says:

    I eat these for breakfast nearly every morning with either fresh ground peanut butter or fresh ground almond butter! Love them & they fill you up!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Mandasue – Yes they do!!

  26. I like to use olive oil and kinda “fry” the tortilla then fold it around the banana, it feels more sinful without being too bad!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Guest – Oh yum!!!

  27. I’m new to the whole Idea and have been browsing your site for a few hours now, completely enticed by the idea of clean eating. In this recipe, what is “nut butter”?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Jennifer – Awesome! I’m sure you’ll love clean eating! Nut butter would be peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, etc….. Any nut butter you want!

  28. graciouspantry says:

    You could, but then I recommend slicing the bananas. πŸ™‚

  29. I love this recipe! I heard about it from ‘ZOOM’ when I was young. I love adding apples and raisins in it also. πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Alexis – Oh yes! That must be yummy! Not sure what ZOOM is though…

  30. Sherry in Union, KY says:

    This turned out to be an excellent post-workout breakfast. I used an Ezekiel tortilla to cut back on carbs and increase protein. They can be found in the frozen organics section for those who are interested. Thanks for the idea!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sherry – Yes it would! I hope you enjoy it!

  31. Catherine says:

    Sounds YUM.

    Just have one question though: What is nut butter?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Catherine – Peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter… any kind of nut butter that you typically use.

  32. Slowly learning to like clean eating, just barely into it by 3 months… I tasted almond butter for the 1st time this past weekend. Of course, I made hubby try it first… I’m such a big chicken… LOL! Almond butter isn’t so bad… at least I didn’t gag on it. This looks like a great dessert idea… 1/2 serving could satisfy my desire for sweet options besides just fruit! Thanks for such a fabulous website filled with many new possibilities.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Deena – My pleasure! Welcome to clean eating! πŸ˜€

  33. Seems like a good and simple recipe to use. However I dont know if tortillas and bananas are a good mix. But I sure can try it. Everything for them calories!
    (i train much so need much calories!)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Matt – It’s good! Or at least I think so. I hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚

  34. Hi, this looks delicious! I found this on Pinterest. I hope you don’t mind, but I just wrote a blog post about this, with a link to your page here. I will be looking through more of your recipes later and sharing, if that is ok. Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rachel – Thanks! And yes, that’s fine. As long as you don’t republish my content or remove the watermark from my photos, feel free to share as many links as you like!

  35. Do you think you could add granola and freeze these? And pull out night before you want to eat? So they are make ahead

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kelly – Freezing would make the banana sort of mushy (once it’s thawed). But if you don’t mind that, sure! And yes on the granola. YUM! πŸ™‚

  36. 5 stars
    Hey Tiffany,
    Do you store the uneaten half in the refrigerator?
    I could make a couple of these for a pre-workout snack πŸ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Marcy – You can if you don’t mind the banana being a little brown. It won’t affect the flavor much, but it does change color. I wouldn’t do more than a day ahead of time if it will bother you. But yes, definitely store it in the fridge. I would wrap it up tightly with plastic wrap to limit the browning. Enjoy!
