Diet Breakfast Burrito

Diet Breakfast Burrito combines bananas and peanut butter in a tortilla for a meal way beyond the idea of "diet food". This is a base recipe that can be adapted to your own taste. I like brunch recipes like this because they can provide a dozen or more meals depending upon your imagination. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia


  • 1 Tbsp non-hydrogenated margarine or butter
  • 4 bananas, sliced
  • 4 medium flour tortillas
  • 4 Tbsp peanut butter
  • Cinnamon


In a medium skillet (heavy pan) on medium heat, melt the margarine or butter.

Add bananas and cinnamon. Stir well, and cook for about five minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, warm the tortillas briefly in the microwave to make them pliable, then spread about 1 Tbsp peanut butter on each tortilla.

Divide the cooked banana equally onto the four tortillas. Seal the burritos on both ends and place in a heated skillet, about a minute per side. This melts the peanut butter and also seals the tortillas.

This is really just a base recipe. You can make these with any kind of nut butter (soy nut, almond, cashew) or any fruit or combination of fruits (apples, pears, peaches, blackberries, black currants, red currants, apricots). I once tried it with oranges and it didn't work, so avoid citrus fruits.

Serves: 4
