Peanut Butter and Jelly Spirals
- One 7 1/2-inch, whole-wheat, low-carb tortilla
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon reduced-fat peanut butter
- 1 Tablespoon strawberry all-fruit spread, or your favorite flavor
I dated a guy who loved peanut butter and jelly. One day, just when I’d thrown the last slice of bread into the food processor for breadcrumbs, he came home ready for a quick PB&J sandwich between appointments. I felt bad, so I offered to make him something, but he didn’t think he had enough time to wait. In a pinch, I threw the PB&J on a tortilla. He looked at me like I was nuts and ran out the door with it. The next morning, I caught him making another one — and I’d already restocked the bread.

Heat a medium-sized nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot, about 1 minute. Place the tortilla in the skillet. Cook until just warm, about 20-30 seconds per side. Place the tortilla on a cutting board. Spread the surface evenly with the peanut butter followed by the fruit spread. Roll into a tube. Slice into 8 equal pieces. Arrange on a serving plate, spiral side up. Serve immediately.
