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!)
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
¼ 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.

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!
Mandasue – Yes they do!!
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!
Guest – Oh yum!!!
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”?
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!
You could, but then I recommend slicing the bananas. 🙂
I love this recipe! I heard about it from ‘ZOOM’ when I was young. I love adding apples and raisins in it also. 🙂
Alexis – Oh yes! That must be yummy! Not sure what ZOOM is though…
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!
Sherry – Yes it would! I hope you enjoy it!
Just have one question though: What is nut butter?
Catherine – Peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter… any kind of nut butter that you typically use.
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.
Deena – My pleasure! Welcome to clean eating! 😀
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!)
Matt – It’s good! Or at least I think so. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
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!
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!
Do you think you could add granola and freeze these? And pull out night before you want to eat? So they are make ahead
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! 🙂
Do you store the uneaten half in the refrigerator?
I could make a couple of these for a pre-workout snack 🙂
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!
