Peanut Butter Quesadillas
Here's a nice variation on the traditional pb&j. My grandkids love them. They're simple, quick and easy to make. Not only that, they taste great. For each one, take one 10" flour tortilla, and spread one side with 1 -2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Fold the tortilla in half. Now, you can either use some vegetable spray or melt one teaspoon of butter in a skillet. Next, heat the tortilla two minutes on each side until lightly browned. Let it cool for a few minutes, otherwise it will probably run and could get messy. Slice into wedges and use grape jelly as a dipping sauce. Or, as an alternative, you can also slice up a banana to put on top of the peanut butter before you heat it. Then use honey as a dipping sauce. You can even get more creative and add some chocolate chips to the peanut butter and banana combo. It's delicious.
I LOVE these! We use whole-wheat tortillas and the all-natural peanut butter. I've also sliced up apple in it and low fat yogurt makes a yummy dipping sauce too!
This was one of my favorite after-school snacks years ago. YUM!
Wonderful. I hope he likes it. As I said, my grandchildren love them, especially the dipping part.
Gotta try this. My grandson who has autism is on a dairy and egg-free diet. I'm looking for interesting things that will entice him to eat protein and ENJOY it.
