Another lunch box staple of mine, that I make for both the kids and myself. By putting the apple into the wrap it keeps it from browning and gives a really different texture to a traditional wrap. I have a daughter who is not a big bread eater and I have found tortillas to be a more agreeable, but still quick option when packing her lunches. This one is also a good nut free option if your child has an allergy or is in a class with a child who does.
Just so you know, I’ve linked some products and or ingredients I believe in and use myself, however I could collect a percentage of sales. At Mommy Spice we’re all a team in making meals and staying on budget and I hope you love the things I recommend as much as I do.
1 flour tortilla, 8”
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped into bite size pieces
1/4 cup turkey lunch meat
1/2 tablespoon honey mustard
Warm you tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds or so with a damp paper towel over the top to make it a little easier to work with. Next, lay your tortilla flat and start to layer. If using honey mustard, evenly cover your whole tortilla, this is going to act as your “glue” when layering and rolling up your wrap. Next lay down your cheese, top with turkey, then apple. Roll up your tortilla, tucking in the ends as you go. Either wrap in foil, or plastic wrap and put it into your child’s lunch box container.
An example using the flour tortilla and no spread.
An example with the Keto wrap and honey mustard.
This wrap has a lot of wiggle room to make it your own. Have a bigger kid with a bigger appetite? Use the 10” tortilla and add more of the filling to make a bigger wrap. Your kid doesn’t mind skin on their apples? Slice them thin with the skin on instead of dicing them. Honey mustard not your favorite spread, switch it out. I’ve made these using mayonnaise, or my sweet Thai chili sauce. Endless possibilities, so don’t be afraid to get creative! These also are super easy to make Keto inclusive by using the flax seed wraps instead of flour tortillas.
