These Banana Nutella Quesadillas are full of chocolate and banana goodness. The buttery cinnamon sugar crust on the outside of each tortilla adds a nice crunch to this easy dessert.
Hhhmmmm. There is a half empty jar of Nutella sitting in our cupboard right now calling my name. What should I do with it? Well, other than just eat it by the spoonfuls. But who does that? Cough, cough.
Or we could make dessert quesadillas! Warm, ooeeyyy, goooeeeyyy, dessert quesadillas filled with banana slices and Nutella. I mean, that's the only logical thing to do, right?
My husband and I took a trip to St. Maarten years ago, and I ate Nutella crepes every single morning. It was absolutely fabulous! I'm feeling the urge to visit there again. But until then these easy pan fried dessert tortillas will have to do.
Somehow I have created full-blown snack monsters in our kids! They can eat a full plate of food at dinner, and then they turn around and say they are hungry for a snack an hour later.
Now don't get me wrong. We don't let them eat a snack every single night. Maybe just every other night. LOL! Most nights we just let them have a bowl of cereal and milk or a bag of popcorn before they head off to their beds.
But sometimes a delicious, gooey treat is fun to do! This is such a quick and easy dessert that tastes amazing!
Plus, your kids will think you are the coolest mom ever if you let them have bananas and Nutella before bed. True story!
