If you’re sick of your typical breakfast of cereal and toast, switch things up by enjoying any of these quesadillas that will satisfy your taste buds and give you energy to take on your day:
Peanut butter-banana quesadilla
It’s important to get some protein in your system in the morning to help keep you full until lunch and give your body some necessary energy. Spread some peanut butter across a whole wheat tortilla – stay away from the reduced fat peanut butter, however, because it actually contains more sugar than regular peanut butter. Slice some fresh bananas over the peanut butter and sprinkle a few chocolate chips over top. Fold the tortilla in half and brown on the stove until you get a golden crust on your quesadilla. This will melt the chocolate chips for the perfect touch of sweetness to your breakfast.
Blueberry breakfast quesadilla
Warm up a nonstick skillet over the stove while you get your quesadilla prepared. Smear some cream cheese spread over half of your tortilla. You can even opt for a flavored cream cheese to take the flavor up a notch. Then top your cream cheese with an even layer of 1/2 cup frozen blueberries. Fold your tortilla in half and brown for two minutes a side on the stove until the bread crisps.
Get creative with your lunch by trying out any of these simple quesadilla recipes:
