This tasty recipe is a Lily Favorite. It is one of the most kid friendly recipes in my book. And honestly adult friendly too, I love them myself! It’s sort of a twist on the typical PBJ sandwich but adds just a tad more nutrients. One thing I always have on hand in my freezer are tortillas, they are a staple in our house. As a kid I honestly can’t remember eating many quesadillas but have really grown to love them as an adult. You can pretty much throw anything in them and it tastes good! Like this recipe, what kid doesn’t love some peanut butter, banana, and chocolate chips. Yep I said chocolate chips! This is the surprise ingredient in this magical creation that is going to leave your kids plates clean and them wanting more.
Here is what you need: a skillet to warm up the tortillas, some good quality PB, one banana, and chocolate chips- which are totally optional. If not doing the chocolate chips try drizzling with some raw honey. Or you can do neither. This recipe is pretty versatile and can be made to suite you and your kiddos taste preferences!
*You can skip the warming up process all together, I have done that when in a hurry but the warmness makes them extra yummy and sort of melts the chocolate chips leaving them all gooey inside.
Original Recipe from Budget Bytes
- Pack of 8 inch organic whole wheat tortillas or sprouted grain tortillas (like these)
- 2 tbsp Peanut butter, or nut butter of your choice (this is my all time favorite PB)
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tbsp chocolate chips*optional
- Raw honey for dipping or drizzle inside*optional (here is where I order my honey from check them out!)
- Warm skillet to low- medium heat. Spread PB over the inside of the quesadilla, lay on the thinly sliced banana slices on top of PB, and then sprinkle with a few chocolate chips. Wait until the chocolate chips are getting a tad melted then flip the other side of quesadilla over the filling and flip for just a few seconds until both sides are golden brown and a tad crispy.
- Use a pizza cutter to slice quesadillas into little triangles that are easy for little hands to manage. If you don’t have a pizza cutter, that is ok. I just have found that pizza cutters are a great tool for quesadillas but a knife will do too. Enjoy!
