      Chef's Notes:

      • For a richer flavor, stir 2 tbsp of low-fatcream cheese into the peanut butter mixture in step 2. Let cheese come to room temperaturebefore adding.
      • To serve as a dessert, add melted chocolatesauce or sprinkle a few chocolate chips inside the quesadilla while cooking.
