Breakfast Sushi Apple Roll Ups

We’re continuing breakfast week with a twist on fruit filled crepes for your kids!  We love crepes because they are the perfect vehicle for fruit!  Our goal at Super Healthy Kids is to make fruits and vegetables simple, fun, and delicious, and this apple filled crepe sushi breakfast does just that!

First, my kids chose the fruit.  And considering it’s the middle of winter here, the only fruit we can really count on getting is apples.  But we love apples anyway, so it was all good.  Apples are a great food to add to your families diet!  They’ve been shown to

  • Regulate blood sugar (none of those super high’s, followed by super low’s)
  • Be a great source of fiber
  • decrease asthma symptoms! (Source)
  • Be high in Vitamin C (oranges get all the credit, but apples are also a good source)
  • Taste delicious! Really, if there is any fruit that most kids will eat, it’s apples. They taste great!

So, first we chopped 2 apples, placed them in a microwave safe dish with a little cinnamon and 1/4 cup of water.   We cooked them in the microwave for about 5-6 minutes.

Then, we chopped the apples up in a food processor just pulsed for a minute! I wanted the apples to stay a uniform size, still be chunky, yet not be applesauce.

Then, we mixed up some whole wheat crepes! Knowing we were rolling the crepes and cutting them into sushi pieces, I didn’t worry about making them uniform in size, or even round! And they turned out all sorts of shapes!

Then, placing the filling in a single layer on one crepe, we rolled them up.

Then with each rolled up crepe, we cut them into 1 inch pieces.

And there you have it!  We loved making these and hope your kids like them too!  The crepes were so much easier to roll up than tortilla’s or other things we’ve tried to make “sushi” out of.  They were soft and pliable enough that it didn’t break when we rolled it!  We may have to experiment with lot’s of different fillings for this one.

I’m looking forward to trying this on the weekend. I love to try the new recipes on the weekend so I can be more confident during the week. You always make the ideas seem so achievable – and I must admit that they usually have worked like you have said they would. Thank you!

Michelle says:

Do these keep good? If I made them at night would it be good to throw in the microwave a few seconds in the morning? Would the crepe not be soggy

Kirsty says:

We made a gluten/lactose free version today, absolutely delicious! Thank you for a great recipe suggestion.

Amy says:

That’s awesome Kirsty- care to share how you did it? Gluten free flours?

Kirsty says:

Yes we used Doves farm plain gluten free flour and lactose free milk. We also used coconut oil to fry the pancakes in, probably not so healthy but delicious 🙂
