Peanut butter-banana Wrap recipe and a Giveaway! CLOSED



i'm thrilled to get to work with Tropical Traditions again! They sent me a jar of their organic coconut peanut butter to try out!

Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter is made from organic peanuts and organic coconut. Only two ingredients: nothing else! There are no fillers, no binders, no sweeteners, and no preservatives. The peanuts are 100% organic Valencia peanuts grown organically by family farmers in New Mexico and Texas. The dried coconut is certified organic coconut meat from the Philippines. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, their dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. Together, these premium organic roasted peanuts and the premium organic dried coconut are ground together to make a delicious and nutritious spread!

When i first received the coconut peanut butter it was very separated, which can happen when it's hot out. If you're familiar with natural peanut butters, the natural separation is very similar. i stirred it up really well, but it was really thin and runny. It remind me more of tahini, than peanut butter. So i put it in the fridge for just a few hours to let it firm up. Then i stirred it up again, and it was the perfect consistency! It should be stored in a cool dark place, for best results. The flavor of the peanut butter is so good! It has a wonderful coconut and roasted peanut flavor. Absolutely delicious! Besides enjoying it in sandwiches and on toast, i've been making wraps with it. The one below is my favorite!

Peanut Butter Banana Wrap
Ingredients:
Whole wheat tortilla
Coconut Peanut butter
Banana
honey
coconut oil

Spread your coconut peanut butter evenly on a whole wheat tortilla. Place a banana in the center, you can cut off the ends as necessary so that you have room to fold it up. Drizzle with about 1 tbsp honey.

To fold: Bring the sides in, pressing into the peanut butter to stick in place. Now bring the bottom of the tortilla up, sort of tuck it under the banana as you gently roll it up. Place a little peanut butter on the inside of remaining edge so it seals the seam. You want to roll it somewhat tight, so that all your ingredients don't leak out.

Heat about 1/2 tsp of coconut oil in a frying pan, and place your wrap seam side down. Cook just a few minutes until golden brown, and then flip over and brown the other side. As the peanut butter heats it will melt and leak out a little bit. This can be drizzled over the wrap after you remove it from the heat.

The peanut butter will be hot and melty, so you'll want to let it cool a bit before you bite into it. This is so unbelievably delicious!! It tastes like a dessert!


Tropical Traditions gave me the opportunity to try out their Coconut peanut butter. My kids loved it. Tropical Traditions website has an entire recipe section for their coconut products, including some really yummy looking recipes using the coconut peanut butter.

Can't wait to try it?? You can purchase Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter here. Right now it is on sale for $9.99.

Win it!
