Healthy Chocolate & Banana Quesadilla is a quick and simple, 3-ingredient recipe that is loaded with 8 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber to fill you up and leave your sweet-tooth satisfied! This crispy tortilla is filled with bananas and Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter for an amazing breakfast or snack that the whole family will love.
If your goal in the New Year is to eat healthier, this quesadilla is a wonderful compromise for something sweet and satisfying. Instead of reaching for a candy bar or cookies that will leave you feeling hungry, whip up one of these easy quesadillas to satisfy your sweet craving. It has the perfect balance of sweetness from bananas and chocolate, with a hint of saltiness from the almond butter.
Nutella has been all the rage for the last few years, and while it does taste pretty good, it is loaded with sugar, 21 grams per serving in fact! It also falls short in many other departments. Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter has 3X more fiber, 2.5X more protein and almost half the carbs compared to Nutella! That alone makes it a winner for me, but the taste actually wins out as well. Instead of the sticky sweet Nutella, Justin’s has a slightly sweet and salty flavor that is much better in my opinion.
When strawberries are in season, feel free to throw some in the quesadilla with the bananas for a fun variation.
- 10" wheat tortilla (I prefer Carlita brand for the best texture)
- 1.5 Tbsp. chocolate almond butter
- ⅔ c. sliced bananas
- non-stick pan spray
- Spread the almond butter over half of the tortilla. Top the almond butter with sliced bananas and fold the tortilla in half. Spray each side with a quick shot of non-stick pan spray.
- In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the quesadilla on each side for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice in half and enjoy immediately.
