Banana almond butter breakfast wrap with chia seeds

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned my breakfast aversion before.

Can it really be defined as an aversion? I don’t know.  I don’t have anything against breakfast, it’s just that I can’t eat as soon as I wake up.  I like to sip a couple of cups of coffee first.  You know, let the caffeine take hold.  Then I’m ready to eat about 2-3 hours later.  This makes for all types of inconvenience since it means I can’t stomach a quick meal before heading to work or hitting the road to travel.  It also means that I’m always changing up what I like to have once the desire for food finally kicks in mid-morning.  The one constant seems to be the need for inclusion of some type of protein, whether in the form of an egg, yogurt, or nut butter.

Chia seeds are truly a superfood.  They are packed with omega-3 fatty acid and pack a wopping 10 grams of fiber per 2 Tbsp!  A friend adds them to smoothies and they can be added to virtually anything:  salads, pies, granola, and yogurt.  Find them at your local healthy food store.

banana almond butter breakfast wrap with chia seeds

one whole grain tortilla (I use Trader Joe’s brand)

2 Tbsp almond butter (or any nut butter)

one ripe banana, peeled

2 Tbsp chia seeds

Warm your tortilla.  I have a gas stove and I grill all of my tortillas by placing them directly on the lit burner on the lowest heat for about 8-10 seconds on each side.  You really have to watch the tortilla-don’t walk away!  If you don’t have a gas stovetop, you heat it using a microwave.  Place your heated tortilla on a plate.  Spread the nut butter.  Place the banana to one side on top of the nut butter and sprinkle with the chia seeds.  Carefully roll up the tortilla.  Cut in half.banana breakfast wrap with almond butter and chia seeds
