Fruit and Peanut Butter Tortilla "Pizza"

As I mentioned before, I have been creating some healthy recipes with kids in mind. I hope to use these for Aidan in a couple of years! Here is a recipe I created a while back, it can be a healthy and fun dessert. Kids get to create their own "pizza" with fruit and whole wheat tortillas. You can use whatever fruit you like, grapes or blueberries may be a nice addition. I use a simple combination of apples, bananas and strawberries. Toasting the tortillas is a must, it gives the pizza crunch. A drizzle of honey may be a nice addition as well, if you are not concerned with extra sugar.


4 low fat or whole wheat flour tortillas (6 inch)

4 Tbs creamy peanut butter

1 medium apple, diced

1 medium banana, sliced

8 medium strawberries, sliced

4 tsp mini semisweet chocolate chips

Makes 16 servings (1/4 of a tortilla)


Cut fruit and set aside. Bake the tortillas in a 450 degree oven for about 5 minutes until toasted. Let cool for 5 minutes. Spread 1 Tbs of peanut butter on each tortilla. Add ¼ of the apple, banana and strawberries to each tortilla. Sprinkle 1tsp of mini chocolate chips on each tortilla. Cut into 4 slices.
