Cinnamon Banana Almond Butter Roll-up

One of Henry's favorite foods is bananas. Of course, he has been asking to pack bananas in his lunchbox. 

Henry has chosen dried banana chips several times, but we've discouraged him from taking fresh bananas. Fresh bananas brown easily when they sit in a lunchbox all morning, so I started thinking about how he could enjoy a banana in his school lunch. He was so excited when I suggested a banana roll-up for Monday's school lunch.

I think this is one of Henry's new favorite recipes. Most of the items in Henry's lunchbox are grab and go, but this simple combination was quick and easy for Henry to make himself. Sprinkling cinnamon on the banana and wrapping it inside a tortilla helps to keep it fresh in his lunchbox. This recipe is definitely Henry approved; he ate all of it at lunch.


CINNAMON BANANA ALMOND BUTTER ROLL-UP
Serves 1

- 1 Banana
- 1 Wheat Tortilla
- Almond butter (you could use peanut butter or sunflower seed butter instead)
- Cinnamon

Peel the banana. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Spread almond butter on the tortilla. Roll the banana inside the tortilla. Slice into pieces that fit in your lunchbox.

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
