Crunchy Peanut Butter & Fruit Wraps
It’s Back to School time, and if you are like me, you are already looking for ways to spruce up lunch for the kids. We have been doing this (making lunches) for years, and while the kids don’t complain about the daily Peanut Butter sandwich, they sure get excited when it’s something different. But, I’ll be honest, I not only lack creativity in the morning, but time. So, I need lunchbox ideas for my kids that are not only delicious and healthy, but also easy to make.
And that’s exactly why I love this Crunchy Peanut Butter and Fruit Wrap recipe. These yummy roll ups are ready in about 60 seconds and I can easily switch them up depending on the kids’ likes.
I use freeze-dried fruit in my wraps so that I don’t have to worry about fresh cut fruit drying out or browning. Th last thing I want to hear from my kids is “The fruit you gave me was gross!” Plus, freeze-dried fruit gives them that extra crunch. I love using Crispy Green Crispy Fruit because it is 100% pure fruit…nothing else. Crispy Green makes several varieties of freeze-died fruit – from cantaloupe to pineapple, so there are lots of ways for me to mix-up these Crunchy Peanut Butter & Fruit Wraps for the kids. Apple and banana are always a hit, as they are a natural match for peanut butter, but my favorite is actually the Asian pear. Yes, I said my favorite….the kids aren’t the only ones that need healthy and delicious lunches 😉

Another reason to love Crispy Green is that they are one of the sponsors for the Produce For Kids Power Your Lunchbox campaign.
