Creamy almond butter and sweet banana rolled into a low-carb wrap to create a delicious on the go healthy snack.
Today I have a super easy almost “non-recipe” for you! Sometimes I feel silly sharing creations like this because it’s truly so simple to make. However, these simple recipes are some of the most popular on my blog so clearly you love them just as much as I do.
I need easy recipes like this in my life, especially in the summer. I basically have to modes in the summer. 1. Lay by the pool and catch up on my Spotify playlists or 2. On the go, driving from one place to another. Either way I’m not in the kitchen whipping 20-ingredient home cooked meals. Not like I do that anyway, but you definitely won’t catch me doing that in the summer. In the summer if I can’t grill it, slow cook it, microwave it, or roll it I’m probably not gonna make it.
Hence, the reason I love love love these almond butter and banana wraps. I love banana and peanut butter but, for obvious reasons, when I’m by the pool or in my car that’s not my snack of choice. But roll it into a wrap and hey now we’re talking.
Buuuuut let’s talk about the wrap part cause we all know some wraps can take perfectly good ingredients and ruin them with refined carbs and calories. And some of the low carb ones taste like cardboard. However, I found a low-carb wrap I really like – Father Sam’s 80 Calories Low Carb Wheat Wraps. I just discovered these wraps in the last year and have used them for breakfast burritos, turkey club wraps, and other basic wraps. I have to say they’re pretty good for being low-carb. I found them near the dairy cooler in Wegmans. They are kind of hidden so you might need to ask if you can’t find them.
Anyway, these wraps work great for this recipe. Almond butter and bananas are kind of high in calories so I didn’t want a wrap that would send this snack over the edge. Plus it has 9 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein so it adds a good amount of bulk too.
Okay, are you ready for the recipe? All you need to do is spread 1 tablespoon of almond butter over the top of the wrap. Of course you can use peanut butter or any nut butter you like. I recently discovered almond butter and I love it so that’s what I used.
Then I sliced up a small banana and laid the slices over top of the almond butter.
If you want a little more sweetness then drizzle some honey or pure maple syrup on but just be aware of the extra calories. Then just roll it up and enjoy.
I cut mine into pieces so it’s easier to snack on. Do whatever works for you.
This snack wrap is FILLING! It’s 287 calories per wrap and has 12 grams of fat, 14 grams of fiber, and 10 grams of protein. If you choose to eat this for a snack make sure you balance out your other meals. You can enjoy this for breakfast too. Or lunch.
There’s also 46 carbs and 17 grams of sugar. The wrap itself has no sugar so all of the sugar comes from the banana and almond butter. If you want to lower that number then try using half of a banana or maybe some berries instead. Regardless, if you’re looking for a simple wholesome breakfast or snack recipe that will keep you full and satisfied long after you eat then it this is it.
These wraps come together quickly but you can also make them 1-2 days ahead of time.
