Good Morning Breakfast Rollups

A few weeks ago my refrigerator stopped working, so I have become very creative in the kitchen lately. (Luckily I had a queue of recipes for this blog ready to go!)  My fridge has been broken since two Sundays ago!  I’m sure it goes without saying that I am beyond thrilled to have the repair person come out today to fix the compressor!

Since I had to throw out most of the food in the fridge, eating healthy has been challenging. Let’s just say the people working at the Whole Food salad/hot bar have gotten to know me quite well!  Fortunately, I was able to salvage a few ingredients from the fridge meltdown, pun intended.  All of my nut butters, grains, and fruits/vegetables survived.

Back in my unhealthy days, my best friends and I would snack on a warm flour tortilla covered in mayonnaise… yes mayonnaise!!!  I cringe thinking about it.  Since I had tortillas and nut butter on hand, I went out to create a healthy version of my previous unhealthy snack. That’s when I created the Breakfast Rollups.

I started with organic sprouted grain tortillas…

Then I added peanut butter, sliced strawberries & bananas, and flax seed.

Sidebar: I love Trader Joe’s flax seed with blueberries.

Then I wrapped it up and microwaved it for 15 seconds.

The results were ooey gooey goodness.  I ended up making many varieties over Fridge Meltdown. (I may have named this period of time!)

My friend, Hosanna, gave me some homemade raisins that were plump and delicious.  I ate half the bag before they even touched the Breakfast Rollup, which has me thinking I need a food dehydrator.

What are your favorite dehydrated foods?  If you have a food dehydrator, what creative ways have you used it?

  1. I remember eating tortillas with mayo at Ashleigh’s house when we were little!! Haha.

    Looks like you have created a newfangled crepe! Yummy!!

  2. I usually go with whole grain bread but I do love tortillas… you just gave me another pre-run meal! Thanks! Is TJ Cocoa Almond Spread about the same taste as Nutella?
