Peanut Butter Banana Pockets

Darren & I were out camping last week in the Smoky Mountains.  We’ve unintentionally made it out there the last four years in a row.  We mostly go out there for the fantastic driving roads and sights.  We planned some hikes so I knew it would be a good idea to pack some good snacks for on the trail.  I also packed enough snacks for the car for oh…3 weeks of road tripping.  Hey, it’s better than having to stop and grab fast food!  Or make a fire.

The views:

These pita pockets were inspired by one of my lovely coworkers- who frequently snacks on  peanut butter and bananas, wrapped in a tortilla.

Ingredients: (for two)

-2 Pita Pockets, I used Multi-Grain
-1 Banana
-1-2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter, I used Crunchy Natural Peanut Butter
-1-2 Tablespoons Granola

Spread peanut butter along bottom side of pita pocket.  Slice 1/2 of a banana (for each pocket) and place on top of peanut butter.  Sprinkle granola on top.

    Peanut butter and Bannana’s count me in, its one of the perfect combinations ever. I never thought of placing then in pockets but now you gave me an idea, great tip. Will do this for breakfast

      Yeah it’s great for when you’re on the go! If you like coconut, I’d bet some toasted would be good thrown in there, too!
