Almond-Butter and Banana Dessert Quesadillas

Mar 24, 2015

These yummy quesadillas are a fun change from the typical peanut butter and banana sandwich. Look for smooth almond butter with no added sugar or salt. Try different fillings, like raisins, dried cranberries or quick cooking oats.


  • 2 whole wheat tortilla
  • 2 Tbsp smooth almond butter (no added sugar or salt)
  • 1 medium banana, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp butter, unsalted


1. Spread the almond butter over the tortilla in a thin layer.

3. Lay down tortilla almond butter side up into frying pan.
4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over almond butter then evenly distribute bananas on one half.
5. Let stand for one minute then fold tortilla in half. Cut into two pieces.
