Apples Honey Cheese Quesadilla

Apples Honey Cheese Quesadilla from

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.
