After-School Snacks: Three-Ingredient Apple Quesadillas

Searching for quick and easy after-school snacks for your kiddos? Give these Apple Quesadillas a try! We whipped up a batch in just about 15 minutes—perfect for empty stomachs in need of a quick-fix. They’re also super easy to customize to fit your family’s tastes. Swap out the cheese, throw on other fillings (sweetened dried cranberries! pecans!), and make a whole new flavor combination just for you. We love the tangy crunch of the apple with the creamy cheese in these. Because the tacos are smaller, they won’t fill up young tummies before dinner. If you need more, you can easily double the recipe.
