Breakfast PBJ & Banana “Quesadilla”

breakfast recipes Nov 03, 2019

Growing up, I lived off of PB & Js or peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I mean who didn’t?! And a good cheese quesadilla likewise made an appearance in our house on busy days when we needed dinner or a snack in a pinch. So why not combine the love for all of these favorites into one, delicious treat? Don’t worry, I left out the cheese on this one  .

For this recipe and any other time I find myself whipping up tacos, I always use my favorite Siete Foods Grain Free Tortillas. If you haven’t hopped on the Siete Foods bandwagon yet, this is the sign you’ve been waiting for! All of their products are gluten-free, nutritious and so tasty you’ll think you’re eating the real deal.

If you’re looking for another way to put those Siete Foods goodies to use on the savory side, give my Shredded Chicken Taco Bowls with Mexican Cauliflower Rice and Mexican Enchilada Casserole a try! Both scratch that itch for Mexican food without compromising nutrition.

For this sweet-style quesadilla, simply smear both tortillas with peanut butter (can sub your favorite nut butter of choice) and jelly. I used my Super Simple Raspberry Chia Jam which is easy to make, tasty AND refined sugar free, but any jelly or jam you love and have on hand works perfectly!

Throw on some sliced bananas and cook your quesadilla on both sides for a few minutes until nice and golden brown. I recommend Chosen Foods Coconut Oil Spray for cooking up this sweeter version. When warmed through, slice up your quesadilla, drizzle with honey, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and you’re in business.

While you truly can’t go wrong with the classic savory (check out this Loaded Chicken Quesadilla for a little inspo), mix up your breakfast or lunch routine with this sweet yet nutritious version that’ll take you back. I promise that your inner child and current self will both thank you  .
