After School Snack

My girls love this after school snack. It's quick, easy, incredibly tasty, relatively healthy, and doesn't ruin their appetites for supper. (We eat supper at 4:30 and the kids get home at 3, so I only make one of these and split it between the Goose and Tink.)

You will need:

2 100% whole wheat tortillas
1 banana
1 T butter
chocolate chips
cinnamon sugar

Melt the butter in a frying pan.

While it's melting, cut up the banana and place the pieces on top of one tortilla.

Smash each piece with a fork.

Place the banana-covered tortilla in the pan and sprinkle with chocolate chips. As many as you like! I used mini semi-sweet, but regular size would be great, too. You could also try butterscotch, white chocolate, or peanut butter chips.

Top with the second tortilla and cook until the bottom tortilla is crunchy and light brown. About 2 mins.

Flip over. I know it seems like this would be a hard step, but I just use a wide spatula and it flips over with ease. Just be quick.

Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the newly flipped side.

When the second side is crispy, remove to a plate and let cool for one minute.

I use a pizza cutter to cut the tortilla sandwich into fourths, two for each monkey.

Gooey, warm, delicious!! This recipe is reminiscent of Elvis' favorite sandwich, the fried peanut butter and banana. Actually, spreading PB on the tortillas would be fantastic.

Holy cow, this looks sooo good! This would make a wonderful after work snack, much healthier than ice cream. This should tide me over until I make dinner. Wahoo! What would I do without your blog? :D
