Do you ever find yourself stumped as to what to feed your kiddos? I am constantly on the hunt for new meal ideas for my girls that are not only appealing to them but also healthy and well balanced. This month my wishes were granted for a fantastic breakfast/snack to offer the girls. It was through my fantastic Secret Recipe Club assignment for the month of May that I discovered, Breakfast Quesadillas on My Hobbie Lobbie.
Trisha of My Hobbie Lobbie has a wide variety of recipes on her blog. They range from a vast amount of delicious Goan food from India to healthy options for breads and even sinfully rich dessert recipes. A well rounded collection of recipes. Honestly, it really wasn't easy for me to pick a recipe from Trisha's collection. Just as soon as I picked one I would then find yet another one that I wanted to make. But, as I stated above I am constantly keeping my eyes peeled for new, fun and healthy recipes to make for my precious girls. Breakfast Quesadillas won! Winner for me and winner for the girls too. They LOVED these delicious wedges of yumminess.
The recipe calls for a tortia that is slathered with peanut butter and then layered with banana slices and sprinkled with dark chocolate chips. Once the tortia has been folded in half it is then cooked in a frying pan on both sides until the insides become all warm and melty and the tortia is a pretty golden brown. Delicious. And yes, healthy.
I had lots of fun with this recipe as the second time I made it I switched it up a bit and made my own variation. I made a scrumptious almond butter, maple cream and strawberry version. Devine. Deliciously devine.
The possibilities are endless with these breakfast quesadillas. Imagine making one with Nutella, almond butter and banana slices or even cream cheese and green olives for a savory version. Yum! What version would you like best?
(recipe from My Hobbie Lobbie)
1 tortia - white or whole wheat
3 Tbsp peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
1/2 banana, sliced
10-15 dark chocolate chips
non-stick spray, butter or coconut oil - for greasing your frying pan
Spread peanut butter on 1/2 or all of tortia. Place banana slices over PB and then sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips. Fold tortia in 1/2 and place in a heated medium size frying pan that has been greased well. Lower heat to medium-low and cook each side until golden brown, about a minute on each side. Cut into wedges and serve. Enjoy!
Happy Breakfast Quesadillas Making!
