Nifty Nut Butter Wrap


This is one of my clients’ favorite Go-To Snacks!  Bananas are not just a good source of B vitamins, they are low in sodium and contain Vitamin C and A as well as high levels of Iron and Potassium.  The natural fiber in bananas also contributes to numerous health benefits.  For instance, bananas contain Trypophan, a type of protein that the body converts to Seratonin, a hormone known for making you feel happy and improving your mood!

Aside from the bananas, these tasty wraps include other nutritional powerhouse ingredients such as the proteins in Greek yogurt and Nut Butter, the energy boosters in Honey and the blood sugar stabilizer of Cinnamon.  Each of these ingredients make my Nut Butter Wraps a healthy and delicious snack anytime of the day!

  1. I’ve been meaning to make a banana peanut butter wrap for breakfast every day, but i’m so lazy in the AM that I just grab a banana and a Justin’s Peanut Butter packet and head out the door. I dont’ have time to cut up the bananas (hehe). But I’m going to force myself to try this recipe this week and I’ll let you know how it comes out!

  2. 1/3 cup nut butter for 1 serving?

    • Lara,

      Yep. 1/3 cup of your favorite nut butter…it’s a healthy dose of protein and fats…if this is too much for your liking, cut down on the nut butter a bit and add another ingredient such as applesauce or Greek yogurt.

      Enjoy.

      Amie
