Try this for your kid's next lunch:
Makes 18 taquitos
18 small whole-wheat tortillas
4 apples, red or green, diced
1 jar (24 ounces) applesauce, no sugar added
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Mix diced apples with the applesauce in a bowl; stir in cinnamon.
Heat a griddle to medium high. Lightly coat both sides of the tortillas with oil using a pastry brush. Place 1-2 heaping tablespoons apple mixture in the center of each tortilla. Roll the tortillas to make a flute shape; carefully place them on the griddle, seam-side down.
Cook, turning, until the tortillas become crispy, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat; allow to cool before wrapping for lunch bags.
