Today’s recipe for Banana Crunch Wraps comes from Attune Foods, but it was actually created by me!

Attune just released its Back-to-School Recipes eBook for free download – inside you’ll find my recipe alongside other creative lunchbox ideas from a few of my blogging friends. With a newly minted kindergartener in our house, I can definitely use all the ideas I can get!

Somewhere up in Toronto, my friend Peter is having the last laugh. He first introduced me to his idea of “peanut butter banana burritos” more than a decade ago, back in his bachelor days. I’ll admit, I didn’t give the concept the respect it deserved at the time. I feared mushiness.

I finally discovered the perfect ingredient to add crunch to these wraps – crisped rice cereal! It turns out that a good layer of crispy rice – and a drizzle of honey – makes these simple, healthy wraps pretty irresistible. I used peanut butter in these wraps at home, but for our nut-free school I’ll make them with soy nut butter or sunflower butter.

Do the bananas get brown? Any idea how to prevent that if they do? My daughter would love this!!

Hi Marisa – I recommend using an ice pack in the lunchbox to slow the browning.
