Healthy Back-to-School Lunch Options: CPB Sweet + Crunchy Wrap

September 30, 2010

This week we’re talking…CHOCOLATE. Yes, I’m actually suggesting that you send your child to school with a healthy chocolate wrap.

What? You don’t believe that is it healthy?

Oh contraire!

I’ve taken my inspiration from the PB&J with SB&G recipe. It is my favorite Flatout wrap of all time. Truly. I eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner.

So this week I present my own twist on that recipe incorporating chocolate, peanut butter, granola & bananas. The secret to making this healthy? Avocado puree in the chocolate!

Back to School Lunch Menu Day 14

A note to parents: Kids are more likely to eat this recipe if they don’t know that you snuck something healthy in there. Make this one in secret!

A big thank you to my guest chefs – Lily and Evie! Who better to dream up healthy school recipes then school children themselves?

Chocolate Pudding (recipe: Deceptively Delicious)

  • ¼ cup margarine spread
  • 1 cup avocado puree
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cornstarch

In medium saucepan, melt the margarine over a low heat. Stir in the avocado puree, sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla.

Cook, making sure to mash any leftover avocado lumps until mixture thickens. Off of the heat, gradually stir in the cornstarch. Serve

We’d love to hear your fresh perspective!

  • Do you usually include a dessert or treat item in your kid’s lunch?

    Thanks! Weren’t they just all cute and giggly? And let me tell you, that recipe is way yummier than I expected. Meaning: I ate it all and shared none of it. I’m not even ashamed.
