2 whole-wheat tor­tillas ¼ cup sun­flower seed but­ter* 2 ripe ba­nanas, peeled and sliced 1 ta­ble­spoon ground flaxseeds 1 ta­ble­spoon maple syrup

DI­REC­TIONS

Place the tor­tillas on a clean, flat sur­face. Spread 2 ta­ble­spoons of sun­flower seed but­ter over one half of each tor­tilla. Place half of the ba­nana slices in an even layer on top of the seed but­ter. Sprin­kle each with half of the flaxseeds and driz­zle with half of the maple syrup. Fold the bare side of each tor­tilla over the cov­ered half to form half-moons. In a large fry­ing pan over medium heat, toast the filled tor­tillas, turn­ing once, un­til they be­gin to puff and turn golden on both sides, about 5 min­utes to­tal. Trans­fer the tor­tillas to a cut­ting board and let cool slightly. Cut each tor­tilla into 4 tri­an­gles and serve warm.
