Cinnamon Apple Quesadillas


One of my favorite quick, breakfast treats. You can make it gluten-free by using corn tortillas! Top this delicious quesadilla with honey, maple syrup, powdered sugar, or whipped topping. Serve as either breakfast or dessert!

1 quesadilla


  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, diced

  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or more to taste

  • 1 pinch brown sugar

  • 2 11-inch flour tortillas


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook apple, corn syrup, honey, maple syrup, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar in hot skillet, stirring every few minutes, until apples are slightly softened and caramelized, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer apple mixture to a bowl.

  2. Place 1 tortilla in the same skillet over medium-low heat; spread apple mixture on top of tortilla. Top with remaining tortilla. Cook until the bottom tortilla is golden brown, 1 to 3 minutes. Carefully flip the quesadilla and cook until the other tortilla is golden brown, 1 to 3 minutes more.
