If you are a peanut butter fanatic like me, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups are going to be your next favorite treat. I probably don’t have to blab you much about how delicious, and perfect peanut butter and chocolate and banana combo is…. and that this combo is real energy boosting blast. BUT I can assure you that having a spoon of peanut butter a day is not only good for keeping you sane but also good for your overall health. Yup, you can go and indulge yourself with these rolls… and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats …. and Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bars. Just GO ahead.

Peanut butter is packed with nutrients – proteins, monounsaturated fatty acids (healthy fats), fibers, vitamins A and E, folate, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and many other amazing nutrients. It’s OMG, overwhelming! Peanut butter is really a versatile spread and although is high in fat and calories the good news is, you get a lot of nutrition from having these calories.

Peanut butter contains no saturated fats and can be consumed on a regular (daily) basis. It only contains unsaturated fats – good fat – energy boosting fats. This is another great news, this time for people who fear to gain weight by consuming peanut butter. Peanuts actually help you to lose weight! Aha, that’s right! … because they are so nutritious – makes you feel full quicker and keeps you full longer.

The best peanut butter is homemade one. Homemade peanut butter is ridiculously easy to make. But who has time, right? So if you’re reaching out in stores to get one, I have ONE IMPORTANT ADVICE. Make sure you buy only 100% pure peanut butter, without added refined sugars or palm oil. It will save you from unnecessary, unhealthy fats and sugar calories. Don’t destroy your healthy eating resolutions – just read the labels and ingredient lists.

Quick fun fact about peanuts: Did you know that peanuts are not even NUTS?! Peanuts, along with beans and peas, belong to the single plant family – legumes. Whoa… I know!! I was quite surprised when I found that out couple years ago.

While banana roll-ups are a quite popular kids snack, it really doesn’t have to be treat meant only for kids and school lunches. It’s perfect wholesome breakfast for the whole family. Or after-workout snack – it’s packed with proteins and fats – just one bite of these will boost you with amazing energy. You can even serve these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups as a romantic breakfast in bed for Valentine’s Day. I mean just look at these cute little bites. Would you like THESE to be served to you in bed?! I know you’d like that.

Banana roll-ups are usually made with tortillas, but these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups are a bit different. To make it more nutritious (and healthier) I rolled the banana in a crepe made of whole grain flour. Sweet and delicate, melt in your mouth crepe hugged the sweet ripe banana so perfectly. This snack is not only healthy – made with ALL NATURAL, nutritious ingredients – but also out-of-this-world delicious.

Making crepes at home is soooo easy. Crepes are like pancakes but only thinner. And you only need a few simple ingredients + non-sticking pan. I usually bake a bunch and have them stored in my fridge – for quick sweet snack or breakfast. You can fill crepes with anything – from homemade Blackberry Chia Jam to just cheese spread and fruits.

These crepes are made with whole grain flour – meaning more nutritious and of course healthier. I used spelt flour (dinkel wheat), but you can use any whole wheat flour you prefer. To sweeten crepes I used pure maple syrup, but not too much. The ripe banana gives enough sweetness so you don’t need to overdue with added sugars.

To fill these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups, I used smooth peanut butter – not the crunchy one. I also enhanced a peanut butter a little with vanilla extract and with some maple syrup… but you can totally skip syrup if you want. Both vanilla and syrup transformed this peanut butter into a silky smooth spread. A perfect fit for delicate crepe base.

Here’s why I love these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups sweeties so much. They are:
