Peanut Butter Pita Pockets

Serving Size: 
1/2 sandwich
Cost Per Serving: 
  • 2 apples, pears, bananas, peaches, or mangoes 
  • 2 medium whole wheat pita pockets
  • 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter



  1. Wash and slice fruit.
  2. Cut pitas in half to make 4 pockets.
  3. Warm each pita half in the microwave for about 10 seconds to make them more flexible.
  4. Carefully open each pocket and spread about 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on the inside walls of each pita half. You may need to warm the peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds, especially if it has been in the refrigerator.
  5. Fill each pocket with sliced fruit.
  6. Serve at room temperature.
  • Try different fruit combinations, such as peaches, bananas, or berries.
  • Place prepared pockets in individual bags for a grab-and-go breakfast or snack. Take along milk or soup in a thermos for a carried lunch at work or on a walking trip to a park.
