While weekend mornings are special, a chance to take my time making breakfast.  Sometimes, though, I don’t want to linger over the cooking.  Enter the very special and quick-cooking breakfast quesadilla; dressed up or down with whichever sweet or savory ingredients you have on hand.  These are a wonderful and colorful break from the speedy toast and oatmeal routine of typical Monday – Friday mornings.


  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • Sweet: nut butter + nut butter + bananas + berries
  • Savory: hummus + mashed black beans + salsa + avocado


  • Begin by spreading the base (almond butter or hummus) on the entire tortilla, then layer the rest of the sweet or savory ingredients onto half the tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half over the fillings, then toast in a pan without oil over medium heat until the outsides are slightly crunchy. Cut into wedges and serve.

Ready in about 5-10 minutes
Makes 1 quesadilla = 1 serving
