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.

I’m so excited to share this smoothie bowl recipe with you for a couple reasons! First, you know how much I love chocolate, especially paired with peanut butter. Is there a combination more delicious? I think not! My kids can never say no – and neither can I. ;)

Second, this recipe is from my friend Alison Lewis’ book 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes. Yes, 200 recipes! Smoothies are a great way to pack in lots of fruits and veggies in your family’s diet, and smoothie bowls make them even more fun. They’re super creamy, and you can top them with all your favorite toppings. A great interactive meal for kids!

The big difference between a normal smoothie and a smoothie bowl is the texture. You want your smoothie bowl to be super thick – almost like soft-serve ice cream! Between the thick texture and the chocolate-peanut buttery deliciousness, this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl will have you thinking you’re enjoy dessert for breakfast.

Smoothie bowls couldn’t be simpler to make. All you have to do is throw your ingredients in a blender, blend, and pour into bowl. You could even prep some DIY smoothie freezer packs ahead of time! Of course, I’d argue that the best part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings. The possibilities are endless! For this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl, we love banana, chocolate chips, chia seeds, and a touch of extra cocoa powder. I can never say no to more chocolate!

All of the recipes in 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes are great for breakfast or snacking, and I know your kids will love them. Be sure to get your copy on Amazon!

The peanut butter and fruit combo is hard to beat, and it’s even better on a delicious tortilla. Of course, use gluten-free if you need to! You can also use a seed butter if your child is allergic to nuts. It’s totally customizable so everyone can enjoy these delicious wraps. Plus, they’re super easy to make with common ingredients you probably already have.

The best part? You get to sneak some veggies in! The carrots add a nice crunch and a little extra sweetness. The granola on top is the icing on the cake! My absolute favorite recipe is this grain-free vanilla granola, but you can use whatever you like. I hope your kids enjoy these delicious wraps!
