For most of us, this weekend will be the last camping weekend of the year, the official end of Summer Holidays before the children head back to school. Labour Day weekend has always been my favorite weekend of the summer, especially as a child; camping with family and friends, delicious meals and yummy campfire treats! Campfires always seems to be the center of any camping trip, maybe it’s because of those delicious treats we like to cook over them. Traditionally, campfire foods are high in fat, sugar and sodium, usually not the healthiest choices. This weekend instead of indulging in those “not so healthy” treats, try making something new, something more nutritious like these CAMPFIRE BANANA TACO ROLLS!
1 soft flour tortilla (whole wheat for more fibre)
Blueberries (chocolate chips as a sweet treat)
Spread the tortilla with peanut butter. Peel the banana and place it on top of the peanut butter in the tortilla. Sprinkle on some blueberries or chocolate chips. Roll it up. Place in foil wrap and let it cook over the campfire for 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool and serve. Enjoy!
