The King's Quesadilla

Elvis loved fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. He used to fry up his sandwiches in heaps of butter, using big slabs of soft bread, huge amounts of sticky peanut butter & bananas. My version is considerably healthier and lower in calories. Still, I have to warn you, while these are tasty little treats, one serving is plenty.


2 small white corn tortillas ( I use Tres Marias white corn tortillas by Pradera Natural Mexican Food Products)
1 Tbsp natural, organic crunchy peanut butter
1 banana, peeled & sliced thinly
1 tsp. organic peanut oil


1. Spread a thin amount of peanut butter on one of your corn tortillas. Don't go all the way to the edge or it will just bubble out and burn. Arrange your banana slices on top, cover with the remaining corn tortilla.

2. Heat a small amount of peanut oil in a non stick skillet on med heat. When the oil is hot, place your corn tortilla sandwich on the skillet. Cook each side until lightly browned. Cut into quarters while singing Love me Tender


  1. oooh. I don't know about this one. I'm not much of a PB fan. Perhaps if I drizzle chocolate sauce in there too!

  2. there are two types of people in this world.
    Those that like peanut butter, and those that don't. :)
    I have always fallen squarely in the those that do camp. That said, when was the last time you bought a nice jar of natural peanut butter? Perhaps you just need to give it another try again. :)

  3. Oh, wow. That looks amazing! Perhaps I need to recreate this with almond butter...

  4. I usually choose almond butter as well Anna- but for this treat I just had to go with the real thing.

  5. hey, this would be the perfect pick me up for us hypoglycemic/gluten/dairy free types. no blue christmas here :) thanks lori!
