How To Make Peanut Butter Banana Roll Ups In The Air Fryer

Lay out the tortillas on a flat surface. Place a tablespoon of peanut butter on the tortilla, spreading until about 1/8” from the edges.

Place banana down in the middle of the tortilla. You can either cut the banana in half and then slice in half lengthwise if you are feeding smaller mouths or leave the banana whole (cut to adjust to fit to the tortilla). Sprinkle chocolate chips and roll tightly.

Place in an air fryer basket, air frying at 350° for 3 minutes.

Remove and top with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar if desired.

 

 

Tips and Tricks for Making Peanut Butter and Banana Roll Ups

  • Use Ripe Bananas: They provide the perfect amount of sweetness and are easier to roll up.
  • Warm the Tortillas: Heat them slightly in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to make them more pliable.
  • Spread Evenly: Make sure to spread an even layer of peanut butter on the tortilla to prevent uneven cooking.
  • Secure with Toothpicks: If your roll ups are coming apart, use toothpicks to hold them together while they cook.
  • Experiment with Add-ins: Try adding a sprinkle of cinnamon, a drizzle of honey, or some mini chocolate chips for an extra twist.

Delicious Variations

  • Nutella Banana Roll Ups: Substitute peanut butter with Nutella for a rich, chocolaty twist that pairs perfectly with bananas.
  • Almond Butter and Apple: Replace bananas with thin apple slices and use almond butter instead of peanut butter for a crunchy, fruity variation.
  • Strawberry and Cream Cheese: Spread a layer of cream cheese mixed with a bit of honey and then top with sliced strawberries. This combination is like having a fruity cheesecake in a roll-up.
  • Savory Peanut Butter and Banana Roll Ups: Add a sprinkle of sea salt, a dash of cayenne pepper, and a drizzle of honey to your peanut butter before rolling up with bananas for a sweet and spicy treat.

How to Store

While these will be best when they are first made, you can make them ahead or store leftovers. Place the cooled roll ups in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. If you plan to eat them on the go, you can refrigerate extra slices until ready to pack in a lunchbox or cooler.

Reheating Tips

When you're ready to enjoy your roll ups again, reheating them properly can help restore their original texture and flavor. For best results:

  • Microwave: Remove any plastic wrap and place the roll ups on a microwave-safe plate. Heat on medium power for 20-30 seconds to warm through.
  • Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the roll ups on a baking sheet and cover them with aluminum foil. Heat for about 10 minutes or until they're warmed through.
  • Air Fryer: An air fryer can also be used for reheating. Set the air fryer to 350°F (175°C) and heat the roll ups for 3-5 minutes.

FAQs

  • Can I use different types of tortillas? Absolutely! You can try using whole wheat, spinach, or even flavored tortillas for a unique twist.
  • Are there any toppings I can add after cooking? Yes! Try drizzling with chocolate syrup, sprinkling with powdered sugar, or topping with whipped cream for an indulgent dessert version.
