Nut Butter + Jam Banana Quesadilla

Forget your classic PB & J. Swap out sugar-laden jelly for one made with nutrient-dense chia seeds and coconut sugar. Instead of sugar-infused peanut butter, look for healthier alternatives like Nuttzo, made with seven organic nuts and seeds. Here, the heat from the pan perfectly melts the nut butter and jelly into a delicious drool-worthy meal, snack or even dessert. Everyone in the family will love this, especially your kids.
