Skip The Drive Thru: Make Peanut Butter Quesadillas At Home



I’m not sure that this is all that much of a recipe, but since it’s one of my children’s favorites I thought I’d share it with you!  These are an easy way to skip the drive-thru on a busy weeknight, and instead feed your kids a quick meal right at home.


When I made these Monday night, my kids begged for more, and asked why they weren’t on the weekly menu plan. (Of course, I have a few peanut butter lovers at home!)  While I do try to make slightly more substantial meals most of the time (because I’m supposed to, right?)  it is fun to make my kids a simple treat, and they were so good that I gobbled down every bite of mine too. 😉

  1. Thanks! I was wondering about this when you mentioned it on Monday and I’ve heard you talk about it before. My 12 yo and 15 yo would love these too. We can’t get enough peanut butter at our house! We may even try these for breakfast! Love the idea!

    • They’d be so yummy for breakfast (especially with bananas!) My son thinks we should try them with chocolate chips too 😉
