These sandwich wraps are a true family favorite! Amy happily packs one in her lunch practically every day … and then sometimes has one for an afternoon snack, too. Not kidding – total fave!

Even though it’s such a no-brainer, simple idea, I’m ridiculously excited to share something that we love so much with all of you – just in case you need a little shake-up for your same-old-same-old PB&J. Plus, my husband bugs me endlessly about why I haven’t posted this recipe yet. (Ok, buddy – here ya go! I’m also ridiculously excited that you can now move on to bugging me about something else! Ahem … xoxo …)

But this recipe really is so simple, so flexible, that I thought there just wasn’t all that much to say about it.

Slap some deliciously nutritious ingredients inside a Flatout flatbread, roll up, and enjoy!

That simple!

Oh sure, I could go on and on, detailing how the juicy apple marries perfectly with the chewy, tart cranberries, the creamy peanut butter, and the crunchy bits of granola. All true!

And I could mention the oodles of nutrition packed in there: vitamins and fiber and from various fruits, protein from the peanut butter, whole grain goodness from the granola … not to mention all the nutrition in the Flatout itself, which is magically loaded of fiber-filled whole grains, and a surprising amount protein.

Oh – and then I could dive into the vast array of options. Like, how you could make your sandwich wraps with all dried cranberries, or alllll raisins … or (gettin’ crazy here …) swap in some other dried fruits like chopped dates or blueberries. Whoa! And you don’t even have to use good ol’ peanut butter. Not with the vast array of nut butters on every supermarket shelf. Plus, if allergies are a problem, you can go for Sun Butter or nut-free Wow Butter. Or, hey – want more apples? Ok! Pile ’em on! How about trying pears instead? Ok by me!

You get the idea. It’s your wrap … I’m not making the rules!

Just throw it all together!

These sandwich wraps are so quick and easy! We just grab a Flatout flatbread (we’ve always got several varieties in the bread box and our freezer!), and spread it with peanut butter. Then we top it with matchstick apples slices (1), golden raisins (2), dried cranberries (3), and a final flourish of crunchy granola (4). You can even sprinkle on a little cinnamon if you’d like. And remember … you should definitely feel free to improvise! Swap in any other nut butter or nut-free butter you’d like, and play around with different fruits. We carefully measured it all out for you on the recipe card below, but honestly – in “real life” we never measure anything for this recipe! No stress here, friends!

But, seriously … far, far beyond ingredients and nutrition and all the obvious recipe options, here’s what I really want to talk about:

The name.

Not the “Granola Crunch Apple-Peanut Butter Sandwich Wraps” name. The unofficial one: Apple-Dapple Crunch Wrap Supreme. That’s what we actually call it in our house!

Although, at our house, most things go by entirely made-up, shorthand names.

Like our dishwasher. Who has time for all three syllables in today’s busy world? We’ve whacked that mouthful right down to six letters: we call it the dee-dub. Huh? I know. You’re not the only one who’s been confused by that. But stick with me: dee-dub. As in D-W (you know … Dish Washer). But again, saying “D-double-ewe” is a mouthful. So … dee-dub! We put our dishes in the dee-dub. Makes so much sense now, doesn’t it?

Similarly, take the word minivan, which we say sooooooo very frequently in our little carpooling world. Again, three whopping syllables. When you’re frantically searching for lost keys, scrabbling for cleats, and wondering where you left your cell phone, three syllables is two syllables too many. Problem solved: we generally just call it the “min.”

Our vocabulary is peppered with lots of other made-up words, too. I married into the term “flug” which Scott’s family uses to refer to any stray bit of fuzz or lint. Because when you desperately need to tell your friend that she’s got a “small speck of lint” on her sweater, it’s just so much faster to point and yell, “Flug!”

And of course, you THK regulars know that we absolutely jump at the chance to make up new holidays and christen them with whimsical (ahem … insane) names. My family can’t possibly be bothered with how long it takes to say that we’re having our “Annual Fall Get-Together in Combined Celebration of Halloween and Thanksgiving.” Too exhausting. We just have “Thanks-O-Weenie”! Ditto for our “Spring Reunion That Falls Between St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.” That, of course, would be “St. Peaster’s Day”!

So, anywho …

… that brings us to these sandwich wraps. And their name.

I just made them up one day, off the cuff – a day that I actually don’t have documented in my recipe notebooks and that I no longer specifically remember. But when you plunk a new recipe creation in front of someone, it’s always helpful if that recipe has a catchy name. Something so catchy that your diner can’t help but be instantly charmed and intrigued. And so, somehow, these were dubbed Apple Dapple Crunch Wrap Supremes. My family thought I was ridiculous (I am) and they giggled at me a lot (I didn’t care). But they also loooooved them.

I think your family will, too!

Oh – and if you find yourself short on time as you finish loading the “dee-dub” and dash for your “min” just in time for the afternoon’s carpool duty: it’s totally ok to cut the name right down, to just thrust four-syllables of “Apple-Dapple” into your hungry children’s hands.

Granola Crunch Apple-Peanut Butter Sandwich Wraps

Preparation 5 min. 2017-07-22T00:05:00+00:00 Cook Time 0 min. 2017-07-22T00:00:00+00:00
Serves 1 Sandwich Wrap     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Flatout flatbread (for this recipe we like Healthy Grain Harvest Wheat, Multi Grain with Flax, or Light Original)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 1/3 cup matchstick-cut apples (from about 1/4 apple – we like tart or sweet-tart varieties like Granny Smith or Honey Crisp)
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons granola (see note)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, optional

Instructions

  1. For each sandwich wrap, place a Flatout flatbread on your work surface and spread with peanut butter.
  2. Lay apple matchsticks evenly, lengthwise, down the center of the flatbread, as shown in the photos in the post. Sprinkle raisins, cranberries, granola, and cinnamon (if using) evenly over top of the apples.
  3. Beginning at one long side, roll the flatbread up.
  4. Cut in half and serve immediately, or wrap tightly and store in the refrigerator until serving or packing in lunch boxes.

Recipe Notes

Substitutions and Ingredient Quantities: As mentioned in the post, this recipe is incredibly flexible. Use it as a starting point, but feel free to get creative and sub in different fruits like fall pears, dried fruits like dates or blueberries, and different nut butters or even nut-free butters like Sun Butter and Wow Butter. We typically never measure exact amounts when making these wraps – don't worry too much over exact quantities for each ingredient, but instead combine everything in a way that you and your family will love best.

Granola: You can use any granola you'd like, including homemade granolas like our Easy, Healthy Applesauce Granola. If you purchase store-bought granola, be sure to read the nutrition labels carefully, as various brands and varieties differ significantly in their ingredient lists, amount of fats and sugars, etc.

We'd love to see your photos of this recipe! Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter and tag @TwoHealthyKitchens!

Inspiration: When I started making this recipe for my family, I didn’t work from any other recipe or cookbook. Just made it up. But then, as I was testing it to standardize everything for you and I began thinking about what I wanted to tell you in this post, I thought I vaguely remembered that the idea for adding crunchy stuff – like seeds and granola – to peanut butter sandwiches had definitely come from somewhere, years ago. Sure enough – I dug back through a bunch of my kiddos’ old cookbooks, and found a “PB and a Wrap” recipe and even a “Fruit and Peanutty Pockets” recipe that I know we riffed on a lot when my kids were younger. So, I’d be absolutely remiss if I didn’t give them a nod here, as I’m sure they were my inspiration, hidden somewhere back in my memory. That “Fruit and Peanutty Pockets” recipe was also part of the initial springboard for our Strawberry-Peanut Butter Quesadillas. You can find both those original recipes in the Better Homes and Gardens book Snack Attack: Return of the Munchies. It’s lots of fun! We have shelves full of children’s cookbooks, but this was always one of my kids’ favorites.

Granola Crunch Apple-Peanut Butter Sandwich Wraps — 28 Comments

  1. THIS is an amazing recipe and an amazing idea!
    It combines two of my favorite things in the world – cereal & wraps/burritos!

    That said, i would really like to make those delicious looking rolls, but i live in Germany and i’m not sure or i somehow know, that i’m not really able to get my hands on the mentioned flatbread. So i need to substitute them for something i can buy. How much different are they from wraps/(corn)tortillas?
    What’s the main difference? Are they thicker? (it looks like that)

    I would be amazing if you could help me out here, Shelley! 🙂

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi there! I’m happy to help – so sorry you can’t find Flatouts in Germany, but you definitely have options!

      I wouldn’t use corn tortillas for this specific sandwich wrap recipe, because I don’t think the corn flavor would go well with the peanut butter, etc. A wheat (flour) tortilla would probably be your best bet for these wraps. Of course, whole grain/whole wheat tortillas will provide more fiber and nutrition if you can find them (although probably not nearly as much protein as the Flatouts – it’s hard to beat Flatouts in that respect), but even plain (refined/white flour) tortillas will work – they’ll taste great but just not be quite so nutritious. Flatouts are maybe a tiny bit thicker than most tortillas, but not by much, so I think tortillas will work just fine for you.

      I’m not sure what other types of flatbread you might be able to find in Germany, but I find that most flatbreads here in America are too think to roll into a nice sandwich wrap. If you can find some other thin option, go for it! I hope that helps!

      And … you totally made me think of my beloved cousin, MaryBeth, who grew up here in Ohio but now lives in Germany. Last summer, she wrote a recipe post for this site about Garlic Lime Shrimp Tacos, and how tough it can be to find certain American ingredients and flavors she loves, now that she lives in Germany. If you’re interested, here’s the link to that: http://twohealthykitchens.com/2016/09/08/garlic-lime-shrimp-tacos/

      Thank so much for the great question … and good luck! 🙂 ~Shelley

      • No, i have to thank you for this awesome and fast reply and answer Shelley!
        Thank you so much!

        I know a place where i can find flaxseed tortillas i may go with them ^^
        And also thanks for explaining, that flatouts are more or likely just wraps/tortillas just a bit thicker with way more protein in it 😀
        I really thought they would be way different from “normal” wraps/tortillas.

        Other i had in mind where Gözleme (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6zleme) or Lavash/Yufka (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavash), since we have a great and active turkish community here in Germany, or some Naan Bread (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_bread) you can get from time to time in the supermarkets.
        But i think every of those option could kinda work. 🙂

        btw great blog article and recipe from your cousin (even the “typical” german picture made me chuckle a bit ^^). Those Tacos look very delicious too AND i can get all the ingredience! 😉
        (which really is some kind of trouble. Especially when you love american food/recipes and all the recipes that come up from the lively foodie scene)

        Thanks again, now i have definitively no excuse anymore to not make them! 😀

        • Oh, I’m so glad my suggestions and explanations helped you! And thank you for suggesting some of the products you thought you might be able to find that would work well for these sandwich wraps – your ideas could really help other readers in Germany, too! (Or maybe you’ll get extra lucky and Flatout will expand to lots of German distribution lol!). So glad you liked the Tacos in Germany post from MaryBeth – I loved her “German” photo shoot, but especially the gorgeous photos of the produce in her local market! Cheers – and I hope I’ll hear from you again soon! 😀 ~Shelley

    • Hi Jodi! Yes – they can be. We do that sometimes, too. The only two things I’d suggest if you want to make these sandwich wraps a couple of days ahead are 1) to definitely choose apples like Granny Smith that don’t brown as readily and 2) just be aware that the granola may not be quite as crunchy. We don’t find either thing to be a big deal and think they’re still really, really good when made ahead, but I wanted to be sure to give you a heads-up about those two things that will slightly change the finished recipe for you. I hope you and your family love them as much as we do! 😀 ~Shelley

  2. Where would I find the nutritional information on this recipe? I would love to take this to work for lunch but I journal what I eat and need some way to keep track of it.

    • Hi, Tina! Great question – and you’re definitely not the only reader who’s asked about nutrition info. There are actually some pretty specific reasons why we have (at least thus far) opted not to include nutrition info with our recipes, so let me offer a little explanation and further info on how you might more accurately calculate your own. We’ve actually debated since the beginning of this blog whether or not we should supply nutrition info (and address it in our FAQ (http://twohealthykitchens.com/about/).

      Especially with Gretchen’s (my original business partner’s) master’s degree in nutrition, she could easily have calculated that manually – plus there are loads of online calculators to use. However, for a variety of reasons, we have decided over and over again not to do that. One big reason is that we generally don’t specify exact brands (although one exception is in this post, where we specifically recommend using Flatouts), so the final nutritional profile of a recipe can vary widely, depending on the purchasing decisions our readers make. In the end, it could almost be a bit misleading to quote nutritional info, if readers make significantly different purchasing choices than we did in testing. Although that problem wouldn’t be a big issue with some of our recipes, it could be for a lot of other recipes on our site. For example, the final nutritional profile of our most popular recipe ever – our very simple 3-Ingredient Crock-Pot Chicken Tacos – could vary tremendously (particularly, in this case, the sodium) depending on which taco seasoning and which salsa someone purchases.

      My best suggestion would be to use your favorite online nutrition calculator. Do you subscribe to our newsletter? A few months ago, we sent out a whole list of different recipe calculators in our newsletter. Too long to publish here (this is already such long answer! ? ), but shoot me an email if you’re interested, and I can send that along for you!

      Also … having said all of this … I want you to know that we do get questions like this from other readers from time to time, too. As a result, we are always re-evaluating this very good question and exploring how we may be able to offer nutrition information in a way that we can feel good about – a way that’s helpful and not potentially misleading. So stay tuned …

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us! I hope these explanations help you out at least a little!
      Have a wonderful weekend! ~Shelley

  3. It sounds like these don’t last long at your house, but would these keep if I were to make a few ahead so they are grab and go ready? I’ve never used Flatout before so I didn’t know if the peanut butter would make them soggy.

    • Hi Kelly! The Flatouts should be just fine – the peanut butter shouldn’t make them soggy at all. The only issues you might possibly have (and they really aren’t big issues) when making these sandwich wraps ahead are that the apples might get a little brown (although sticking with apples like Granny Smith that don’t brown as readily helps), and that the granola won’t be quite as crispy-crunchy. We often make these ahead, too (usually for packed lunches), and despite those couple of minor issues, they’re still really, really good! If you give it a try, let me know what you think! 🙂 ~Shelley

    • Hi, Ann! So sweet of you to pop by – I’m delighted to hear from you! And yes … I think you nailed it exactly: “So simple yet so good!” This sandwich wrap idea really seemed almost too simple to bother sharing with our readers, but we loved it so much that I decided I just had to post it – and I’ve been shocked at the crazy-positive response! Even my mother-in-law called me, raving about what a great idea it was and how this would be just the perfect thing for her to pack on day trips and how she’d never thought of this before! It’s actually become one of my most popular pins on Pinterest at the moment, too! I guess it just goes to prove that sometimes simple really is better! 😀 ~Shelley

  4. Wow this looks great!! I’ve been doing banana and peanut butter wraps or apple, but this looks even better!! And it’s healthy, that matters a lot to me!

    • Thanks so much for the sweet comment, Clara! We do peanut butter in lots of ways at our house, too … but this sandwich wrap is such a favorite of ours! And I hear ya on the importance of it being healthy – it’s always my goal to find ways to make really delicious food my family LOVES … yet make it truly nourishing, too! These wraps definitely fit the bill! Enjoy! 😀 ~Shelley

    • I know what you mean about Flatout – between my freezer and my breadbox, we literally have probably 10 bags on hand at this very moment! We use them for so many things, in so many different ways, and I’m always happy about how much fiber, whole grains and protein they offer – and without too many unnecessary extra calories, either! And definitely – if you’re a peanut butter and apples kinda girl … you will totally be addicted to these sandwich wraps! My Amy, in particular, loves snacking on apples or celery, spread with peanut butter and sprinkled with dried cranberries (like in our Ants on a Log 2.0), so these wraps are absolutely perfect for her! Can’t wait for you to try them, too! 😀 ~Shelley

    • It really is super easy, and totally shareable (so you can snack right along with her! 🙂 ). I love that, with all the whole grains and protein, it’s really the kind of snack that will keep kiddos fueled up until dinnertime – through all those practices and after-school meetings and homework! Enjoy! ~Shelley

    • Bril!! That’s perfect! I seriously think I might have to start saying that (pretty sure my kids will hate me for it, but oh well 😉 )! And yes – those apple sticks are such a perfectly sweet-tart-crunchy addition … TOTALLY BRIL! ~Shelley

    • Oh, I’m so happy to have inspired you, Dorothy! There really are lots of terrific textures and such a great combination of flavors in this wrap sandwich. Plus, you can definitely feel free to riff on this idea anyway you like! Mmmmmmm … so many possibilities … Have fun!! 😀 ~Shelley

    • It really did instantly become a fave in our house, Cathy! 🙂 Between the crunch of the apples and granola, and the creamy peanut butter and chewy dried fruits, this sandwich wrap has so much textural interest and lots of great sweet-tart flavors going on! Enjoy!! ~Shelley
