I make these when we go camping. Very hearty and filling.

- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 1⁄3 cups whole milk

My 19 year old son picked this recipe in his search for a healthy on-the-go breakfast. He really likes them. I did substitute a sweeter jonagold so I can slightly cut back on the honey. I also upped the apples to about 3 cups without a problem and subbed low fat milk for whole. I did put a really thin smear of almond butter on the tortilla before wrapping. I'm planning to double the batch next time and trying some with a brush of butter and baked till crispy. These are excellent reheated too. Thank you for adding another keeper to our recipe file :)
Very good, easy, and filling. I bought a package of tortillas and scaled the recipe accordingly. I left half my apples in bigger chunks and diced the rest, used skim milk, and low-sugar applebutter we put up last fall. I froze them all in large ziploc bags, and it is sooo easy to pull some out of the freezer, wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 90 seconds. My boys love these dipped in a mixture of peanut butter and maple syrup or honey. I love it becasue it is a quick breakfast, perfect for on-the-go and healthy to boot. Thanks for posting!
This was fun new recipe to try for a quick breakfast. It was a little too sweet for our tastes but a nice way to mix things up. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
