Peanut Butter Quesadillas
Number of Servings: 2
Prep Time: 5 minute
Cooking Time: 6 minutes
2 Flour or Rice Tortillas
4 tablespoons of peanut butter
4 tablespoons of jelly – This is best with grape or strawberry jelly (in our opinion at least!) but any type of jelly, jam, or fruit spread will do.
1. Spread the peanut butter on one side of the tortilla, then spread the jelly on top. You can use more or less peanut butter and jelly if you want; it is up to your own individual preferences.
2. Place the second tortilla on top to make a “sandwich”.
3. Grill It! If you have a quesadilla maker, you can just place it in and cook according to the manufacturer’s directions. If you do not have one, don’t worry, you can still make these! Simply heat up a skillet with a small amount of butter and grill the tortilla for 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned.
4. Cut into wedges and serve.
There are a number of delicious variations for this recipe to consider as well.
Add some crunch and fiber with apples:
Apples also go really well with peanut butter, so this is another variation on the above recipe. The apples add a little crunch and a nice flavor. Simply substitute jelly with 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and sliced.
Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Quesadilla:
Another yummy variation is to use chocolate and banana instead of jelly or jam. Simply use 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 small-medium sized banana cut into slices.
