Their favorite breakfast..

What child doesn't love the sugared cereals, the buttered waffles, the pop tarts that are more like a cookie than a breakfast food. And, I too have given in to the little tyrant's pleas for the exciting new breakfast "thing". However, my children are school age, and I don't want them to be flying on a sugar high for their poor teachers. So, we came up with this breakfast. My almost 8 year old is a pro at making this, especially on those mornings when I can't get it together, which is often.. and well, that is a whole other blog entirely.

Are you ready for the ingredients?? Ok... one tortilla, one scoop of peanut butter, and about 15 chocolate chips. That is it. Let me demonstrate.

Spread the peanut butter over the tortilla... oh, and let me state that I usually use almond butter, but since I am living with people, I am at their discretion... and they buy Skippy!!


Sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the pb. Again, I usually use the dark chocolate chips from Trader Joe's... they buy Nestle.



Pop in the microwave for 15 seconds to melt together and you have one kid-friendly, lower sugar, and healthy breakfast. My son would eat this every day. We serve ours with a banana and milk (Almond for us) and I can feel good about at least one meal!
Tortillas are a wonderful invention for mothers. Fill them with whatever and kids will eat them... well, mine will. I have used them for pizza pockets, and just now Hannah had one for lunch with turkey and cheese and veggies. Let's all give thanks for the tortilla!!

P.S. My picky husband loves this breakfast too!

I will have to try that one!
My daughter(and me too) are hard-core cereal lovers. But, Hailey will eat plain tortillas so I'll give it a try!

That sounds realllly good. I think I'm going to add tortillas to my shopping list. I can't wait to try my two fave things PB and Choc. Mmmmm
