The King of Quesadillas
This recipe reminds me of something the King - Elvis Presley - would eat. His love of peanut butter and bananas is legendary so why not grill up a tasty version of this classic combination?
I would like to take full credit for this super easy recipe since both my children (well, all three of them if you count Eric), as well as myself, enjoyed this little concoction. However, it was our very own Jeannie C. who shared this recipe with me.
Spread all-natural peanut butter (or almond butter) on a 100% whole wheat tortilla.
Sprinkle a little cinnamon and slice bananas on half of the tortilla.
Fold in half and grill until warm and golden brown.
Slice, serve and enjoy.
How easy, easy, easy is that? And, if your kids are into dipping food into something, consider a side of plain yogurt or fresh fruit salsa for dunking and dipping.
This is a fast, nutritious lunch for kids and toddlers but would also be a great pre- or post-workout recovery snack for the kid in all of us.
Thank you Jeannie!
