Recipes for College Students: Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Quesadilla

Hello fellow college students, bloggers, and random people on the Internet in search of the perfect breakfast, it’s your local source of delicious here to bring the ultimate satisfaction. That is, unless you don’t like bananas, or peanut butter, or butter, or chocolate chips. But who doesn’t like chocolate chips? No one. Good, I’m glad we answered that question. Now you have had your daily dose of sarcastic humor by yours truly (who else), onto the recipe! I’m sure we’ve all seen the many Pins on Pinterest featuring the infamous Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Quesadilla, as it has certainly made the rounds over the years. So here’s the thing, I finally decided to try it, and, let me tell you, it was absolutely delicious! Now, the Pinterest one is fine…but….I decided to bring this little delicacy to maximum goodness levels. Want to know how? Just follow the recipe below, you can’t go wrong.:) Well, actually, you could technically go wrong, if you think about it. But we’re not going to think about that! Because positivity is always best! Anyway, how can we fail with only five ingredients?:)

There are two ways you can cook this bad boy, in a grill, or in a pan on the stove top. I will be including both methods below.

The Ingredients: 1 whole wheat tortilla, 1 tbsp. all natural crunchy or creamy peanut butter, 1/2 banana, 1-2 tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate chips, butter or cooking spray.

Spread half of your tortilla with the peanut butter. Slice the banana and arrange the slices atop the peanut butter. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly atop the banana slices, making sure to keep all of the ingredients on one side of the tortilla. Fold the tortilla over to make it a quesadilla.

Grill It: Spray the inside of your grill (preferably the indoor, electric kind) with cooking spray. Place your prepared quesadilla into the grill and close the lid. Cook for 3-5 minutes. The grill should toast it evenly on both sides.

Fry It: In a small pan over medium heat, melt half of your butter. Add the prepared quesadilla, toast it evenly on one side. Add the remaining butter and toast the quesadilla on the other side. Turn off the heat, serve while warm, and enjoy!
