By: Herald Staff Report,
Send the kids to school with this lunch that makes the grade.
18 small whole wheat tortillas
4 apples, red or green, diced
1 24-ounce jar applesauce, no sugar added
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Mix diced apples with the applesauce in a bowl; stir in cinnamon.
Heat a griddle to medium high. Lightly coat both sides of the tortillas with oil using a pastry brush. Place 1 to 2 heaping tablespoons apple mixture in the center of each tortilla. Roll the tortillas to make a flute shape; carefully place them on the griddle, seam-side down.
Cook, turning, until the tortillas become crispy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; allow to cool before wrapping for lunch bags.
Yield: Serves 18.
