Why We Like It

While this recipe is ideal for lunch, you can serve these delicious and completely kid-friendly quesadillas anytime -- think afternoon snack, weeknight dinner, or even breakfast!

Saute the Apples:

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil)
  • 3 apples (cored and thinly sliced, unpeeled)

Add oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the apples, spreading them out evenly in the skillet.

Cover and sauté for about 7-8 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

Season the Apples:

  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Add to the apples and stir for one minute.  The mixture should thicken slightly.

Transfer the apples to a bowl and set aside.


  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 6 whole wheat flour tortillas (or 12 corn tortillas)

While the apples are still cooking, spread 2-3 Tbsp of peanut butter (or almond butter) on half of the tortillas.  Set aside.

Wipe the apple skillet clean with a paper towel and place a tortilla, peanut butter side up, in the skillet.  Top with the apple mixture (divided as needed), and then add another tortilla (without peanut butter) on top.

Cook until the tortillas are browned and crispy, carefully flipping to brown both sides of the quesadilla.  Repeat for each quesadilla.

Slice into triangles (a pizza cutter works great) and serve immediately.

Serve and Enjoy!
