Apples Honey Cheese Quesadilla

Apples Honey Cheese Quesadilla from weelicious.com

We've been going through a big quesadilla making phase in our house. Whenever we have fun eating or making something, we do it nonstop until we just burn out on the idea for a while. The most recent cooking adventures have been all different kinds of pancakes and homemade gelatos in any form or flavor. We’ve been whipping up banana almond, sweet potato and veggie pancakes, and coconut, strawberry, and burnt honey yogurt gelato (recipes coming soon!). We all love getting in on the act of creating ideas just based on what's in our fridge and this past week’s food obsession was quesadillas. Going beyond the traditional, I went so far as to put cream cheese and kiwis on some quesadillas before cooking them up (trust me_ not a good idea, they were totally gross).

You rarely see sweet quesadilla recipes, but I thought this cheesy quesadilla with apples and honey was a fun idea and Kenya enjoyed helping me prepare them. We made a few with apple sauce and some others with thinly sliced apples and they were equally delicious. Whenever you need a quick recipe that will satisfy a sweet and savory craving, try making your kids a batch of these.

    Love how fast, easy and healthy this is! I assume you can substitute the honey with agave? Still too worried to give honey to my one-year old...

      Dear Debbie,Food isn't easy.I have come to a standstill corecnning weight loss. My \"diet\" is lots of fruit, vegetables, herbs(I grown them self, a lot), bread with white cheese, one portion of dinner, no sugar, no chocolate, no ice, more fruit, and for supper more bread..and cheese. I have eaten cheese because I need extra calcium for my osteoporosis.In Norway we use either brown or white cheese, mainly. I prefer the white.Now my daughter tells me she saw a program about how the white cheese make the stomach blow up, due to some digestive processes.Dried friut should have the same bad effect.Is this something you are familiar with too?I have bought a 4 grain mix, no sugar added, and sour milk to replace my cheese meals, at least the one for breakfast.I am I on a right trail?It has been so disappointing not to loose more weight, since I feel I've cut so much from my food plan.I'm still writing what I am eating, so its easy to make adjustments.I also wonder about instant coffee. Is that bad for my cholosterol?I know I should work out more, but that doesn't come that easy.Working in the garden is a big hobby and joy to me. I hope that might be of some use fitnesswise too.Have a nice week end.From Felisol

    Well, after reading several of your recipies I was inspired and thought I had found the cure to boring lunches. I decided to start by making the above quesadilla for my son for breakfast. He loves honey, apples, cheese, and tortillas, so this should be a hit, right? Wrong. He ate two bites, under duress, and declared that he didn't like it. Then he burst into tears. Hopefully this will not be his response to other new recipies. At least I liked the quesadilla, so it didn't go to waste.
