Peanut Butter Cigars

I’ll let you in on a little secret:

6 month-old baby on a nap strike + Recipe Book Wednesday = SHORT RECIPE.  Having promised to post a few recipes which include homemade tortillas, I’ll just post the simplest one today.  Hopefully it will only take about 15-20 minutes to write, because I think that may be my window.  🙂 

These were our lunch at the zoo the other day, when it was unseasonably warm and impossible to stay in. 

Whether you need a quick, portable lunch, a snack, or a dessert (throw a few chocolate chips in there), I hope you enjoy.  There’s NOTHING this little recipe can’t do.

Peanut Butter Cigars


Peanut butter

Homemade tortillas


Warm a tortilla.  I prefer to do so in one of three ways:

  • in the oven
  • in a cast iron pan over low heat (so it doesn’t get firm and crispy)
  • in the toaster oven on a low baking setting

Spread a nice, gooey layer of peanut butter on the tortilla, and wrap it up long ways. 



You have just created the building block of an incredibly flexible recipe.  Add jelly for a low-carb PB&J.  Slice a banana and tuck it in there for a protein punch.  Sprinkle on chocolate chips and coconut and squirt whipped cream all over the place (hit the tortilla with some – not just your mouth) and you’ve got a decadent dessert. 

The tortillas themselves take so little time and effort to make, I hope you’ll give them a try.  Save your body the effort of absorbing preservatives and needless ingredients, and make your own terrific tortillas!
