PB Banana Protein Pop Tart

I cannot take credit for the idea of the healthy pop tart.  I’ve been seeing photos circulate like wildfire in the blogosphere, so I fully admit to seeing photos that inspired this fun little recipe.  I don’t know who was the first to do it, all I know is that there are oodles of photos flying around with every filling you can imagine.  This is my own recipe, and my kid-taste-testers loved it.  I’ve experimented with a lemon cream, pumpkin, chocolate-coconut, all with great success.  So take the basics of this recipe and go wild with other flavor possibilities.  Now: let’s talk macros.  The ratios here are spot on if you subtract the fiber from the low carb tortilla.  I generally don’t do this and count all the carbs when logging food.  We don’t painstakingly subtract every gram of fiber from every veggie in our mixed green salads, so why would we from our high fiber protein bars and tortillas?  But, the fiber will not impact your blood sugar here, so know that even though the carbs are slightly higher than your ratios might allow, it’s still a blood-sugar stable snack, and a sweet, satisfying one at that.  I think it’s a fun after school treat for the kids, or perhaps it’s your 3 p.m. snack.  If you find a low-carb tortilla with less that 15 grams of carbs, buy it and use it.  My tortilla had 18 carbs, but 9 grams were fiber.
