This is a favorite I have been doing with variations for awhile but never microwaved before-so a new addition. I use pb2 powdered peanut butter and skip jelly and coconut in favor of cinnamon and something textured which adds a lot in my opinion. I got idea from another recipe like this -add sprinkle of fiber one or I like Kamut puffs from Natures Path. Jelly good too or apple butter unsweetened. Have even added shredded carrots, or apple instead of banana..so many variations. Thank you for yours.
What a terrific idea. I grew up loving peanut butter and banana sandwiches but with this version I can still have the taste without all the calories. I used a whole-wheat, low-fat tortilla, smooth peanut butter, and just a small amount of seedless raspberry preserves. Such an inexpensive and easy lunch to throw together. I am going to make this for my son to take to school too - just a nice new twist for him. Thanks for sharing!

Yum-o! This was a fun and easy lunch today. I used sf blackberry jam (it was already open) and a reduced calorie whole wheat pita instead of the tortilla (I have tortilla's in the freezer, now I have something to make with them!).... In any event, I loved it! I don't think you can go wrong with peanut butter, banana's and coconut! One teaspoon of coconut was not very much and didn't add a lot to the taste, since there aren't very many calories in unsweetened coconut, I'd sprinkle a few more on. Oh, and next time I would halve the 1/2 banana and lay the two quarters end to end to cover the entire length of the pita. Thanks for sharing this simple lunch and/or snack! Made for Photo Tag.
