Healthy Back-to-School Lunch Options: CPB Sweet + Crunchy Wrap
This week we’re talking…CHOCOLATE. Yes, I’m actually suggesting that you send your child to school with a healthy chocolate wrap.
What? You don’t believe that is it healthy?
I’ve taken my inspiration from the PB&J with SB&G recipe. It is my favorite Flatout wrap of all time. Truly. I eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner.
So this week I present my own twist on that recipe incorporating chocolate, peanut butter, granola & bananas. The secret to making this healthy? Avocado puree in the chocolate!
A note to parents: Kids are more likely to eat this recipe if they don’t know that you snuck something healthy in there. Make this one in secret!
A big thank you to my guest chefs – Lily and Evie! Who better to dream up healthy school recipes then school children themselves?
