The combination of peanut butter and banana is a classic, as is banana and chocolate. Peanut butter and chocolate is a good one too. Put them all together, however and you have a feast in your fist.
TikTok Wrap Hack
If you’re on social media, you’re bound to have seen this TikTok wrap hack. It’s been doing the rounds for quite a while now. It took the foodie scene by storm once again a couple of months ago. Although it originally went viral on TikTok, you can find it on Instagram, Facebook and even Twitter too.
And no wonder. It’s such a clever idea. Instead of rolling up your fillings in a tortilla wrap, you fold them into quarters. You can make a delicious tortilla wrap with up to four fillings in no time at all. It’s super quick and easy to put together, the filling tends to stay put and it’s easy to eat too. Enjoy one for breakfast, lunch or supper. Or in this case, pudding.
But what makes this tortilla wrap hack so special, you may well ask? Well, it’s not only super simple to make, but it’s really easy to eat too. Just pick it up with your fingers and tuck in. No fuss and no mess. But even better than this, as you fill and fold, you create a stacked sandwich with alternating layers of filling and bread.
It’s also really good fun. You can even have a party with everyone adding their own favourite fillings.
Vegetarian Tortilla Wrap Filling Ideas
Apart from my peanut butter, banana and chocolate version, there are so many fillings to choose from. This particular tortilla wrap hack is a great way to play around with different combinations.
Cheese is a particularly good ingredient to use as it melts beautifully. It also helps the wrap to stick together. I always put it in the first or last quarter so it gets plenty of heat.
Here are three ideas to get you in the mood:
Breakfast Tortilla Wrap
Start with scrambled eggs or tofu scramble, follow with fried mushrooms then baby spinach and finish with grated cheese.
Vegan Mexican Tortilla Wrap
‘Bacon’, Lettuce and Tomato Tortilla Wrap
Start with a layer of vegan mayonnaise, then add a couple of slices of fried smoked tofu or vegan bacon. Follow these with a layer of torn lettuce and finish with sliced ripe tomatoes.
How to Wrap a Tortilla So That The Fillings Don’t Fall Out
Think of your tortilla as a clock face, divided into four quarters. See next section for step-by-step images.
- Cut a slit from one edge to the middle. You can use a knife, but I find scissors easier.
- Mentally divide the wrap into quarters.
- Working from the slit edge, spread each quarter with your chosen filling.
- Starting at six o’clock and working clockwise, fold each quarter over onto the next one until you have a four layered wrap.
- Cut the tortilla sandwich into two.
Peanut Butter, Banana & Chocolate Tortilla Wrap Hack
This way of wrapping tortillas has become one of our staples now. We eat them regularly, both savoury and sweet. But this peanut butter, banana and chocolate tortilla wrap hack is the one we come back to again and again.
Most opt for four different filling in this type of wrap, but I really like a repeat of the peanut butter. It’s only a thin layer, so there’s no danger of getting peanut buttered out. A double dose of savoury peanut butter really balances out the sweet banana and chocolate.
You only need four ingredients, a knife and a non-stick pan for toasting. Just follow the steps 1-8 below and the steps 9-10 further down the post.
For one person you will need:
- 1 wholemeal tortilla wrap
- 3 tsp peanut butter
- ½ banana – sliced
- 10g dark chocolate (I use 70%)
The result is not too sweet, wholesome and thoroughly delicious. It’s a great dessert that everyone can enjoy. Although we usually have it for pudding, it makes a rather good breakfast too.
Vegan, Gluten-Free and Child Friendly
You can adapt this peanut butter, banana and chocolate wrap so easily. If you use the right chocolate, it’s vegan and if you swap the tortilla for a gluten-free one, you’re covered there too.
If you’re making these for kids, just swap the dark chocolate for milk. Finally, if anyone has a nut allergy, try swapping the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter – assuming they can eat seeds that is.
Whilst you can eat this peanut butter, banana and chocolate wrap just as it is, it’s far nicer toasted. The whole wrap is warm, you get a nice crunchy exterior and a squidgy melted interior. Besides, despite what I said earlier about this TikTok wrap hack being a good way to stop your filling falling out, this doesn’t quite work with chocolate chips.
Once you’ve melted them, however, it’s a different story.
You can use a sandwich press to toast the wraps, but a non-stick frying pan works perfectly well. Place the wrap onto a hot pan, chocolate side down and leave to toast for a minute. Flip the wrap over and toast for a further minute. My cast iron skillet* is perfect for this job.
Cut into two pieces and eat straight away.
Tortilla Wrap Hack: Top Tips
Use wheat flour tortillas NOT corn ones. They need to be soft, thin and pliable and this is where wheat scores. You could make your own, of course. I have a lovely recipe for sourdough flatbreads. But I don’t manage to roll mine quite thin enough or regularly shaped enough to make this tortilla wrap hack work well. So I buy wholemeal tortilla wraps and use those.
If you want to make this tortilla wrap vegan, then make sure that a) the wrap itself is vegan and b) your chosen chocolate is vegan. Many bars of dark chocolate are made in a factory that process dairy chocolate too and manufacturers can’t guarantee they’re dairy-free.
Toast your tortilla wrap for a crispy outside and a soft, warm, melting middle. Use a sandwich press, or as I do a non-stick frying pan. My cast iron skillet* is perfect for this job. Toast on a medium high heat on one side for a minute, then flip over and toast the other side for a further minute.
If toasting your tortilla sandwich, don’t cut it in two until after you’ve toasted it.
When adding crunchy salad ingredients such as lettuce, keep them for the second or third quarters so they don’t get too much heat and wilt.
Cheese is a particularly good ingredient to use as it melts beautifully. It also helps to hold the sandwich together. I always place it in the first or last quarter so it gets plenty of heat.
