PB & California Prune Pinwheels
This version of the classic PB & J by Cara Harbstreet, MS, RD, LD is created with on-the-go snacking and fueling in mind. No need for cold storage, so prep ahead of time and enjoy when you need them!
- 1 whole-grain tortilla or wrap 8 inches
- 2 tbsp prune puree
- 1 1/2 tbsp peanut butter crunchy or smooth
Lay the whole grain tortilla onto a cutting board. Use a soft spatula to spread the peanut butter in a thin layer, covering side-to-side but leaving one edge uncovered (to allow for spreading while rolling).
Repeat this step with the prune puree, spreading it in an even layer on top of the peanut butter.
Starting at one end, tightly roll the tortilla until you reach the uncovered edge. Use a sharp knife to slice crosswise into pinwheels.
Enjoy immediately, or store in an airtight container or sealed bag until ready to eat.
If desired, postpone slicing your prune pinwheels until ready to enjoy.
As with all recipes, please substitute with an alternative nut butter if you have a peanut allergy.
And that’s all you need! Simple, nutritious, convenient. This checks all the boxes of what busy athletes and active people need, plus these ingredients tend to be relatively affordable and easy to find in any grocery store.
