In keeping with my New Year’s resolution to eat healthier during the week, I have made a concerted effort to eat breakfast on a regular basis. Additionally, keeping a lot of fresh fruit and veggies in the house has been awesome – I love having fruit on my cereal and side salads with nearly every meal.
These breakfast wraps are a kind of copycat recipe from a coffee shop on campus. I used to study in this coffee shop all the time when I was an undergrad – loved it here, even though it always had a slight wet socks smell to it…
Anyway, I have been consuming these wraps nearly every day for the past two weeks, and I am just beginning to consider switching up the ingredients to give myself some variety (I’m definitely a creature of habit in that I can eat the same thing day in and day out for a few weeks straight). Also, these are great for a breakfast on the go, if you are accustomed to eating in your car or at your desk.
Fruit and Nut Wrap
1 flour tortilla
1 Tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 Tbsp Neufchatel cheese (or just plain ‘ol cream cheese)
1 Tbsp fresh granola (the small bits work best)
3 medium strawberries, sliced
½ banana, sliced
- Spread the peanut butter and cream cheese across the center of the tortilla
- Sprinkle granola on top of PB and CC (I recommend not doing this part ahead of time [as in, if you like to make your breakfast the night before] as the granola will get soggy)
- Lay sliced fruit on top of granola
- Roll up like a burrito, wrap in plastic wrap, ready for travel
