The Easiest Recipe I’ll Ever Publish Part I: Fruit and Nut Butter Roll Ups

By on February 23, 2015

Ohh the roll up. I first discovered this wonderful invention while volunteering at the May Queen aid station during the 2013 Leadville 100. They had the basic supplies: tortillas, peanut butter, and squeezable grape jelly. I added a little squeeze of honey to spice things up a little bit and quickly became a hit of the aid station (second only to the warm chicken and vegetable broth station, which makes sense since it was 2 am and about 30 degrees outside).

I’ve taken the classic roll up that I learned back in 2013 and made it a little more “gourmet”. And by “gourmet” I mainly mean that I’m no longer using squeezable grape jelly – mainly because I don’t like grape jelly. But if you do, then please stick to good old standby.

This will be a two part recipe series, the first will be anย elevated version of the classic roll up (below) and the second will be a meat eater’s dream roll up. These roll ups are great for kids lunches, snacks for long car rides, or fuel for hiking, running, skiing, or any other type of adventure you can dream up. I hope you enjoy them!Ohh the roll up.

Note: These do not keep for very long (2 days in the fridge max) so eat them quickly - which shouldn't be hard because they're delicious! Also, if you have a gluten allergy you can replace the whole wheat tortillas with rice ones, they're equally as delicious just a little different.

Servings: Roll Ups
Instructions
  1. Warm up tortillas until they are soft enough to fold without breaking. I don't have a microwave so I do this in a pan on the stove. If you have a microwave, simply put the tortillas between two damp paper towels, microwave for 30 seconds, and remove.
  2. Spread 1 tbsp nut butter on each tortilla.
  3. Spread 2 tsp fruit preserves in the center of each tortilla.
  4. Lay apple slices across the center of each tortilla (right on top of the fruit preserves).
  5. Roll up and enjoy. Alternatively, wrap in aluminum foil and enjoy at a later time (but no more than 2 days after you make them or the apple will get brown and mushy).
