Breakfast Sushi

breakfast sushi | my skinny sweet tooth

Sushi isn’t just for lunch or dinner. Granted, you won’t find any fish or wasabi here. I’m talking about replacing all those savory elements with fruit and all good things to start your day off right. I’m also getting rid of the rice and replacing that with a low carb, high fiber tortilla. Basically, this is a no-fuss breakfast option to help pull you out of the typical cereal and bran muffin rut. Have your kiddos customize their own “roll”. They’ll have fun with it, too! Who wouldn’t love eating with chopsticks for breakfast?

Listed below are just two of my sushi creations, but the possibilities are endless. As I have more combinations, I’ll update this post 🙂 But go for it! Use what you have on hand and get creative!

banana and pear sushi

  • Servings: 1 roll: 3pp per roll
  • Print

1 tortilla (I use Olé high fiber tortilla)
pear, cut into match sticks
2T pb2, prepared (powdered peanut butter)
1T oats (optional)
chia seeds

•Mix pb2 and oats together and spread onto the tortilla
•Place pear sticks on the bottom end of the tortilla.
•Lay the banana on top of the pear, straightening out the banana carefully.
•Start at the bottom and begin rolling the tortilla all the way up.
•Once rolled into a “sushi roll”, use a serrated knife and slice the roll in half.
•Then cut those halves in half, and again with those halves so you’ll end up with 8 pieces.
•Take the 2 ends off and eat those 🙂
•Place the 6 pieces flat side down and top with chia seeds.

  1. Karen, I have a Facebook page dedicated to nutrition. I feature a recipe of the week, usually my own creation if no readers share any. Because my page is “evidence-based” I include the brief nutrition facts, which I calculate. A reader shared your innovative recipe. Would you mind if I featured it on my page this week (via Tumblr)? Obviously I would credit you and your blog.
