3 Ingredient Snack Kids Can Make by Themselves: A Twist on Quesadillas

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Looking for a healthy after school snack that your kids can help make? Try making this fun twist on a kids snack staple: grilled peanut butter and banana quesadillas.

This versatile snack is perfect for after school, but can also be made for breakfast, lunch or even as a healthy dessert. You can use a variety of fillings instead of peanut butter like almond butter, jelly or chocolate hazelnut spread. You can also try a bunch of different fruits like strawberries and blueberries to keep this snack from getting boring.

Ingredients

  • Whole grain tortillas
  • Peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
  • Sliced bananas

Preparation

Spread the peanut butter (or whatever filling you choose) all over one side of the tortilla. Then place fruit slices or the jelly on half of the tortilla and fold it in half. You can serve just like this, or you can grill the quesadilla for a couple of minutes to get a crunchy tortilla and warm gooey filling. Simply heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Add a little non-stick cooking spray or butter to the skillet. Place the folded quesadilla in the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes or until the tortilla is golden brown. Flip the quesadilla and cook for another 2 minutes. Once cooked, place on a cutting board and cut into wedges.
