Recipe: Fruit and Nut Wrap

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.

Today's breakfast, served computer-side.

Fruit and Nut Wrap
Makes 1

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

  1. Spread the peanut butter and cream cheese across the center of the tortilla
  2. 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)
  3. Lay sliced fruit on top of granola
  4. Roll up like a burrito, wrap in plastic wrap, ready for travel
