PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY QUESADILLA

The peanut butter and jelly sandwich is probably one of the most iconic, well-loved sandwiches EVER. After seeing the viral Tiktok folded quesadilla EVERYWHERE online, I wanted to combine my love of the classic sandwich with my love of a good quesadilla (like my air fryer quesadilla). That's how this peanut butter and jelly quesadilla was created!.

Ingredients:

- Whole wheat tortillas - Peanut butter - Hemp seeds - Berries of choice - Bananas

Does it matter if I use fresh or frozen berries?

No! I will note that if you use frozen berries you should defrost them first and (try) to strain out the excess water or else your Quesadilla may be too soggy.

How can I add more protein to this pb&J Quesadilla?

I like making a little easy yogurt fruit dip with just plain Greek yogurt (or blended cottage cheese), a little cinnamon and a touch of maple syrup) as an easy high protein dipping sauce for this Quesadilla!

Do I need to use the hemp seeds?

No you do not. I like adding them in because they are a great, easy way to add in some extra nutrients (and as a dietitian I love doing this whenever possible). However, if you don't have any on hand don't worry they won't effect the taste of the recipe at all if you leave them out!

STORAGE

For best results I recommend eating this pb&J Quesadilla right away! You are able to store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. However I find after cooking, the tortilla will get soggy in the fridge (plus you won't be able to wait to eat it)!

Substitutions!

To make gluten-free: Use a gluten-free tortilla/ wrap as the base of your Quesadilla! To make vegan: This pb&J Quesadilla is already naturally gluten free (yay)! For a peanut free option: Swap the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter! To use jam instead of berries: Don't have any berries on hand- don't worry! You can easily swap the berries with 2 tablespoon of jam of your choice (I always recommend looking for a lower-sugar jam)!
