Healthy and easy school lunch wraps!

It happens to us all when packing school and office lunches day after day. Maybe it happens the night before when you start thinking about having to pack food to go.

You reach a point where you look at that loaf of bread and hear in your head “yup, another sandwich.” Or maybe, they come home squished and half-eaten.

Tortillas to the rescue! Making a wrap is the easiest, not to mention, yummy way to cure that burnout. It’s also a great way to pack a variety of protein, veggies, and healthy fats into one, delicious, hand-held lunch.

Plus, who doesn’t love all those yummy lunch ingredients rolled in a tortilla? Exactly. Hand-held lunches are always a winner.

Can you make a wrap grain-free?
Yes! If you need a grain free wrap, check out these coconut flour wraps. I love using them as a gluten-free option and they hold up very well in a lunchbox.

If you need a gluten-free wrap option, many stores sell gluten-free tortillas. So essentially, you can make any of these ideas gluten-free.

So back to what you came here for. These 5 healthy wraps for school lunch that are also grown-up friendly. That means, that you can eat these too! Better yet, they are the perfect wrap for teenagers because they aren’t “kiddy” they’re just delicious.

Peanut Butter Apple Wraps
Doesn’t get any more simple than this! I love making these since peanut butter and apples are always in my fridge and pantry, plus it’s one of my favorite combos! If you or your children can’t have peanut butter replace it with any of your favorite no-nut butter spreads like sunflower seed butter.

Hard Boiled Egg Wraps
These healthy wraps are an inexpensive way to get a good source of protein and healthy fats, from the egg! This wrap is made with chopped eggs, turkey, lettuce, and tomato! So simple and of course, you could omit the turkey since these are hearty enough with the hard-boiled eggs.

Hummus Veggie Wraps
It’s the ultimate vegetarian wrap! Spread the tortilla with hummus and top with all your favorite veggies add a little cheese and voila! I love using hummus as a spread for wraps, it adds a ton of flavor and keeps them from drying out if you pack them the night before like I do.

Grain-Free Lunch Box Wraps

I know how tough it can be to add variety to a grain-free lunch box. However, with these grain-free wraps, you’ll be able to repurpose leftovers, add more variety, and satisfy your grain-free needs!

While I’ve purchased Paleo Wraps before, they can get expensive if you are packing grain-free wraps for multiple people. My husband complained that they were too plain and coconutty for him, which is okay with me since I like them, but that left me testing a few other recipes.

I tend to use the two recipes listed here the most, and I’ve even gone as far as chopping a little spinach into the batter or adding it to the batter. You can never have enough veggies, in my opinion.

This wrap is perfect for any of the grain-free lunches in our meal plan. Granted, I try not to grain-free–fy or Paleo–fy the recipes because that tends to add extra work, but seriously, who can pass up the classic wrap? Sometimes, you just need it.

I make a double batch of these on Sundays and refrigerate them for the week. I stuff and roll them up cold and then pack them in a lunch box. Shown are grain-free wraps (bottom left lunch) and regular lunches. So good, you can’t tell the difference!

grain free wraps, regular wraps, and gluten free wraps. so good you can't tell the difference!

Making these grain-free wraps is pretty simple, it’s just like making pancakes! If you can make pancakes, you can make these.

Grain-Free Lunch Box Wraps

grain free tortilla wraps recipe. easy to make and very versitile.
  • Author: MOMables.com
  • Yield: 4

Ingredients

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or other milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt (can omit for sweet fillings)
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional but adds almost a hint of a cheesy flavor)
  • Oil for cooking

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl or blender, mix all ingredients (on low speed if using a blender). Let batter sit for 10 minutes -this is crucial for coconut flour to absorb the moisture.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and spray or grease with oil of choice (if I use these to stuff with fruit I sometimes use butter).
  3. Pour a small circle (about 1/4 cup) of the batter onto the heated greased pan and spread the batter by giving the pan a twist of your wrist a couple of times to create a thin layer.
  4. Once the wrap has cooked for about a minute, it will look a little firmer. It’s time to use a spatula, lift and separate, and flip. Cook the other side for about another 30 seconds, then remove and set aside.
  5. Repeat cooking process with remaining batter.

Cabbage Cups

Do you ever try to send lettuce wraps to school, but they just fall apart?

cabbage cups

Everyone knows that lettuce wraps are a lunch box rage. They’re a delicious, non-sandwich idea that is naturally gluten- and grain-free. They can also get—boring. And even though you buy that crisp romaine, it can rip easily and make a mess of your lunch.

Let’s talk boring lunches for a second. Do you ever find your kids saying that they are tired of the same ham and cheese sandwich over and over, or do you simply feel a bit guilty about sending the same thing over and over?

Trust me when I say, you’re not alone. This very thing has happened to me and eventually inspired the beginning of MOMables, so sign up for our newsletter or sign up for our amazing weekly meal plans and take heart knowing that you are doing everything you need to keep your kid’s bellies happy!

That’s why cabbage cups are a great option, too. They’re full of vitamin C and antioxidants.

Use green, if you prefer, or try the red variety for a fun pop of color in your lunch!

Fill it with your favorite sandwich fillings, chicken salad from our MOMables Menu Plans, or even a delicious spicy beef, or perhaps leftovers from the night before.

There’s nothing to it! Just clean some cabbage leaves, pat dry, fill, and enjoy.
