For lunch yesterday I made the kids something they ate at Festival '09 in downtown Grand Rapids. Now, at first this seems like a fairly unhealthy, indulgent and 'snacky' meal, but I realized that each ingredient isn't particularly offensive. It's a tortilla wrap with peanut butter, honey, sliced banana and chocolate chips. I used a mini LaTortilla, homemade peanut butter (I haven't bought Jiff in at least five years!), raw and organic honey, a banana and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. Roll it up and voila! The kids ate it up!
Making homemade peanut butter is SO simple. Take a food processor and just grind up the peanuts until they are smooth and creamy. It takes about five minutes for about two cups of nuts for me. My favorite is cashew butter, which I usually add a bit of grapeseed oil to because it gets rather dry. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
