Peanut butter apple wraps are an incredibly tasty combination of creamy, crunchy, savory, and sweet, all wrapped up for a healthy 5-minute lunch.
If you find your kids enjoy peanut butter and apples for snacks, then this is a great idea to pack in the lunchbox- let me show you how!
Peanut Butter Wraps with Apples & Carrots
The peanut butter and apple combo is hard to beat and even better on a delicious tortilla. The best part? You get to sneak some veggies into this healthy lunch wrap!
The carrots add a nice crunch and a little extra sweetness, and the flax is a healthy addition! An optional “cherry on top” would be some grain-free vanilla granola– it adds another level of crunch and flavor.
You can use a nut-free butter alternative if your child goes to a nut-free school. I have tested several, and soy butter is the winner for being almost identical to peanut butter in taste and texture.
What is in Peanut Butter Apple Wraps
Here’s what you’ll need to roll up one of these wraps:
- Tortillas: flour tortillas work best since they’re pliable.
- Peanut butter: use creamy or crunchy.
- Chopped apple: any variety of apples works here!
- Carrot: shredded is the only way to go.
- Flaxseed: optional but adds a DELICIOUS texture and healthy fats.

How to Pack Peanut Butter Apple Wraps for Lunch
Now, let me show you how to assemble and pack these PB and apple wraps in the lunchbox:
Spread the peanut butter over the tortilla, top with the rest of the ingredients, and wrap tightly before cutting it in half.
- Pack it right
Pack the wraps in a compartmentalized lunch container separately from other ingredients and snacks to keep the wraps from getting soggy or disheveled.
- Prepare for transport
Add your choice of side items to the empty compartments. Close the lunchbox and place it in a lunch bag with an ice pack.
