I found this idea on the Cafe Moms website under the topic, "Lunch ideas to banish brown-bag blues." Another mom says she makes these and puts them in a thermos or wraps in in foil. She also packs a side cup of maple syrup or honey for dipping. I thought it sounded good, we had everything in the house I needed for it, and my kids needed something new for lunch today instead of the same ol' same ol'...
I think these would be great served for breakfast too!!
To make one pizza (8 small slices)
* 2 whole grain tortillas (I used MISSION brand Artisan Style Tortillas- Ancient Grains flavor (Made with 5 different Ancient Whole Grains... delicious blend of whole grain wheat, amaranth, millet, quinoa, sorghum and teff)
* 2 T PB (My family's favorite is Jiff Creamy)
* 1/2 banana- cut into thin slices
* 2 tsp spreadable butter
* 2 T honey or maple syrup (optional... it was great with or without! But who doesn't love to dip!?)
Spread 1T of Peanut Butter on each tortilla. Slice the banana and place slices scattered around on one of the tortillas (as shown below). Put tortillas together and spread 1 tsp of butter on the outside of each tortilla.
Heat up a skillet to medium heat on the stove top. Once hot, place tortilla pizza on skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. Take off and use a pizza cutter to cut into 8 pieces.
Dip if desired or just eat plain!!
ENJOY! Your kids will love them... and so will you!!
