This reminds me of how much I love banana and peanut butter together.

I use previously frozen banana, add some cinnamon. Excellent.

This is really enjoyable to eat. I didn't have any cashew butter so I used coconut butter in its place.

This is one of my favorite snacks to eat or breakfast on the go. I'll put them together, pack them in a bowl and take them for breakfast at work. They are a great "pick me up" that really satisfy.

This is really good. I've found that the more I pay for the cashew butter, the better these are. Not surprising I suppose. When I want to really treat myself I buy the expensive cashew butter!

I love these for breakfast. I avoided them for so long thinking they wouldn't be filling enough. Amaingly satisfying. I add flax seed to the cashew butter.

Great idea about the flax.  Will do that when I make it.

I love bananas with peanut butter but this just didn't do it for me. Perhaps it was the crunch of the romaine. I ate it but didn't care for the combination of flavors.

These cashew banana romaine wraps are very delicious and satisfying. So simple and quick to make- you have to try these! They remind me of eating banana and peanut butter sandwiches. Thanks for this recipe!
