Works For Me Wednesday: Tortilla Snack

 I learned about this hearty snack at Backpacking class (I know, that is pretty much one of the most far-out classes offered at my school!). It worked really well for me when I was on a three-day backpacking trip, as well as now, whenever the hungries strike! This is a poor man's Power Bar, if you will.

What you need:

1 tortilla
Peanut Butter
Uncooked oatmeal

Smear peanut butter on the tortilla. Add honey. Sprinkle with a liberal amount of uncooked oatmeal. Roll up and enjoy!

You could probably add raisins, coconut, nuts, or whatever tickles your fancy. Personally, I find the original combination so good, I actually haven't experimented yet. Best of all, this is the only snack I can think of that actually satiates my appetite and doesn't leave me rummaging through the pantry again in ten minutes! Works for me!

P.S. For a really good homemade whole wheat tortilla recipe, look here. I substitute canola oil for the olive oil, because olive oil is too pungent for tortillas, in my humble opinion. :-) And I've found that cooking on an electric griddle works the best.

  1. This sounds great! I think my children would love it! Thanks!

  2. Sounds great. We do PB&J on tortillas as a picnic lunch for a while now. I will try it with the oatmeal too.

  3. Yum! My kids would love this. I love making the whole wheat tortillas, too. :D

  4. Nice to meet you at the beginning of your adventure! This is one of my kids' FAVORITE lunches! (Maybe I'll make one today...)

  5. I'll have to make those for my boys. They love any kind of "roll-up". Thanks for sharing!

  6. I do the tortilla and honey but I never have added oatmeal. I'll have to try that.
