Banana Burrito

Okay, this is one of the yummiest raw snacks, and I'm sure it's been blogged to death, but in case you have not used collards in this way, you simply must!  This is my all time favorite pre-run snack.

Step #1:  Take a large collard leaf.

Step #2:  Cut out the thick part of the stem as it can be a bit sour.  Save it for a green smoothie addition.

Step #3:  Add a banana, ripe if you want a sweeter burrito.

Step #4:  Slather the banana with raw almond butter, or nut butter of your choice.

Step #5:  Sprinkle on some raisins.  

Step #6:  Fold up the sides.

Step #7:  Don't freak out because it looks weird!  Enjoy your banana burrito and prepare to run like the wind 1 1/2 to 2 hours later.  

Question:  What fills your favorite burrito?

    They are yummy, aren't they? I think it's awesome that your kids are such healthy eaters.

  3. They are so delicious. Good with other greens too, and other add-ins. I went through a phase of loving burritos of romaine lettuce, a nori sheet, a dab of garlicky, spicy guacamole and banana. Super weird, huh? But it was good!
