This week I thought I’d post about some of my favorite food items I’m using while doing the Weight Watchers Momentum plan. One of the foods I eat almost daily is Flatout Flatbread wraps.
I especially like their Healthy Grain Multi-Grain with Flax wraps I buy at Costco, though I’ve tried a few varieties at King Soopers (Kroger), too. Best of all they’re only 1 Weight Watchers POINTS per wrap and are high in fiber. They freeze well and are great for breakfast egg white burritos or wrap using a lean protein (fish, chicken or venison) and some lettuce.
Here’s a recipe I devised to finish up all the hard boiled eggs leftover after Easter.
Egg Salad with Peppers Wrap
- 4 hard boiled eggs – use 1 whole egg and three egg whites
- 2 Tbsp. Hellmann’s Reduced Fat Mayonnaise Dressing
- 1/2 cup diced peppers (red, yellow, orange and/or green)
- 2 Flatout Flatbread Multi-Grain with Flax wraps
- salt and pepper to taste
- Peel the hard boiled eggs and discard 3 of the 4 egg yolks.
- Put eggs in bowl and use a potato masher to smash up.
- Add mayo and use masher to mix well.
- Add diced peppers and salt and pepper to taste. Mash up again to combine.
- Lay 1 Flatout Flatbread on plate and cover with lettuce.
- Spoon 1/2 of egg salad mixture on to flatbread and roll up.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 with second flatbread, lettuce and rest of egg salad mixture.

Flatout Flatbreads for dessert? You bet!
Flatout Flatbreads are great for wraps, pizza and even panini. But what about a healthy dessert or sweet snack? Try my recipe using flatbread, peanut butter and banana.
PB & Banana Roll
- 2 Tablespoons peanut butter (I recommend MaraNatha organic no-stir peanut butter)
- 1 whole peeled banana
- 1 Flatout Flatbread Multi-Grain with Flax wrap
- Layout the flatbread out long side horizontal so it’s longer from left to right than from top to bottom.
- Spread most of the peanut butter in a line vertically down the center.
- Spread some peanut butter on the left edge, so when you roll the flatbread from the right, the peanut butter will act as a glue to seal your roll.
- Place banana on the right side of the flatbread, then carefully roll the flatbread all the way up. (If you are proficient with a sushi mat, you could use it to make a perfectly shaped, tight roll.)
- Since the banana probably isn’t as long as the roll, gently smoosh it with your hands and squeeze the banana so it reaches both ends of the roll.
- You can either eat it like a burrito, or slice it with a sharp knife into sections like a sushi roll.
Options: add a little cinnamon to the banana before you roll it up.
