Peanut Butter & Banana Burritos

What you need: 

1 tablespoon margarine or vegan butter
4 bananas, sliced
4 medium flour tortillas
4 tablespoon peanut butter
sugar or other sweetener (optional)

What you do: 

In a medium skillet on medium heat, melt the margarine or butter. Add bananas, cinnamon, and sweetener if using. Stir well, and cook for about five minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, prepare the tortillas: Warm the tortillas briefly in the microwave to make them pliable, then spread about 1 tbsp peanut butter on each tortilla. Divide the cooked banana equally onto the four tortillas. Seal the burritos on both ends and place in a heated skillet, about a minute per side. This melts the peanut butter and also seals the tortillas. These burritos are excellent for breakfast or a snack with a tall glass of soymilk or some hot coffee!
This is really just a base recipe. You can make these with any kind of nut butter (soy nut, almond, cashew, or even tahini) or any fruit or combination of fruits (apples, pears, peaches, blackberries). The only fruits I wouldn't recommend are citrus fruits or fruits that are very watery, like watermelon. Feel free to experiment with seasonings too. I hope you enjoy this easy, yummy recipe! :)

Super yummy and easy.  I microwaved the tortilla and used a packet of Splenda instead of sugar.  I can't wait to try it with other fruits like apples, pears, or ooh -- even grilled pineapple.  Breakfast won't be so boring and my snacks, well - snack time will never be the same


WOW! i was pleasantly surprised when i enjoyed this marvelous burrito!
I'm a HUGE fan of warm banans and peanut butter, so this recipe made the warm, gooey, deliciousness all the more convenient!
thanks so much....




this was so good! I just warmed the whole wheat tortilla in the microwave and spread peanut butter and bananas on it, and it was awesome
