Banana and Peanut Butter Quesadillas
My wife and I broke out the quesadilla maker the other night. While we enjoyed our chicken and cheese, I was looking for some type of dessert to try. A dessert using quesadillas as the backdrop. What turned out was a play off of the ol' peanut butter and banana sandwich. Unfortunately this was not as good. The end result was a very dry and not too pleasing flavor of bananas. I went back to the drawing board and made a few other recipes that I will be sharing soon as well.

For now, here is a recipe that may work great for kids. These quesadillas are much cleaner than your standard peanut butter and banana sandwiches and I imagine with a bit of added creativity, they could be a great snack. Any suggestions?

Servings: 1-2

- Peanut butter
- 1 Large Banana
- 2 Large Tortillas
- Honey

Using a quesadilla maker instructions as a guide, layer the peanut butter, bananas and honey onto a tortilla. Cook until golden brown. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.

*Note: This may also be made in a microwave however that will not generate the crunchiness of a normal quesadilla. Maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing.

This reminds me of a recent Cooking LIght recipe for grilled peanut butter/banana split sandwiches - my husband and I thought the chocolate chips and pineapple preserves were over the top, but for a very informal dinner one night, made grilled peanut butter, banana, and raspberry jam sandwiches - mmmmmmmmmmmm. (We didn't have the strawberry jam called for in the original recipe). I think he used some smart spread on the whole wheat bread when he grilled it, and you can get whole wheat tortillas. Also, natural peanut butter may have part of the magic - I doubt homogenized peanut butter would have been as good. So, try raspberry jam, and a bit of smart margarine on the outside, I think you'll like it.

Instead of honey try strawberry or raspberry jam.
