Apricot Sunrise Wrap


Not all wraps have to be savoury

Not all wraps have to be savoury. This one is a favourite for breakfast, dessert, or as a completely nourishing after-school snack. The apricots provide iron, necessary for people of all ages, and the almonds provide essential fats to build healthy skin and a good immune system, as well as calcium for strong bones.

1/4 cup (60 mL) almonds, chopped
1 cup (250 mL) organic or soy yogourt (any flavour)
1/4 cup (60 mL) dried apricots, chopped
1/4 cup (60 mL) banana chips
2 tsp (10 mL) maple syrup
1 cup (250 mL) granola
2 Tbsp (60 mL) fruit-sweetened apricot jam
2 10 inch (25 cm) wholewheat tortillas

Toast chopped almonds in a 400°F (200°C) oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

In a large bowl, combine almonds with yoghurt, apricots, banana chips, and maple syrup. Fold in granola.

Divide jam equally between tortillas and spread evenly over each, leaving a 1 inch (2.5 cm) border around edge.

Divide granola mixture between tortillas and wrap, tucking the outer edges in as you roll. Enjoy! Serves 2.
