Banana Wrap Recipe

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 banana wrap recipe is fantastic for a kid’s school lunch or breakfast on the run. (It’s not bad for adults either!).

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 who can’t have bananas, think outside the box! Or, rather, outside the tortilla? Try strawberries, apples, 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

Whole grain tortillas – Opt for one without added sugar.

Nut butter – I used peanut butter.

Bananas – Peeled and unsliced.

Storage

If you have leftovers or want to make this ahead, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.

Freezing

These can be frozen and eaten directly from the freezer.

Reheating

If you freeze these, do not thaw them. The tortilla will have a very different texture that is not all that appetizing. Best to eat this frozen if you freeze them.

    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!

  2. graciouspantry says:

    Cori – Oh yum!

  3. graciouspantry says:

    Stephanie – Oh yum!

  4. 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!!!

  5. graciouspantry says:

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

  6. 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!!

  7. 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!!!

  8. 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!

  9. graciouspantry says:

    You could, but then I recommend slicing the bananas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I love this recipe! I heard about it from ‘ZOOM’ when I was young. I love adding apples and raisins in it also. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. 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!

  16. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!
