Peanut Butter Cup Breakfast Quesadilla

Chocolate + peanut butter = best combination everrr.

Ghirardelli Chocolate

Creamy PB

My breakfast today was inspired by Reese’s peanut butter cups.

As I was packing this breakfast last night, Ryan asked “Where are the eggs?” He couldn’t understand how this combination constituted as a breakfast and I politely explained that it is breakfast because I’m eating it at breakfast time. πŸ™‚ Meal before 9 a.m. = breakfast.

I microwaved Ghirardelli 60% cacao baking chips on a Joseph’s tortilla until the chocolate was spreadable.

Joseph's Tortilla

I spread a big ol’ spoonful of peanut butter on the other half of the tortilla to round out my peanut butter cup breakfast quesadilla.

PB + Chocolate

Peanut Butter Cup Quesadilla

It was sweet, salty creamy, warm and delicious.

At first glance this might not appear like the healthiest breakfast, but the ‘dilla has protein from the wrap and peanut butter, fiber from the wrap, healthy fat from the peanut butter and satisfying sweetness from the chocolate. Nutritious is delicious!

Workout

I love BodyPump. It’s the best class ever! I love how it makes lifting weights a brainless activity. Monday mornings are often tough mentally for me and I am grateful for group exercise classes like BodyPump that take you through everything and challenge you along the way.

Do you like group exercise classes?


Today’s BodyPump class was a good one and I followed it up with 25 minutes on the elliptical with OK! magazine.

Jake, The Bachelor, was on the cover of the magazine… Tonight’s the season finale!!!

Any Bachelor fans out there? Who are you rootin’ for?

  1. The ghiradelli chips are like crack! I can never stop eating those babies.

  2. Heck yes I love Body Pump and Group Fitness! I love it so much, I got certified to teach it and now I am a group fitness instructor! That’s love right there. lol

    I’m rooting for Tenley all the way. Vienna is just to young in my opinion. Who knows!

  3. I’m rooting for Tenely but I’ve heard rumors Vienna wins… guess we’ll finally find out tonight!

    ps. Your breakfast looks delish! I love melting PB & Chocolate chips in oatmeal too!

  4. Your breakfast looks yum!

    I wish I liked body pump, but honestly I wasnt the biggest fan. I much prefer lifting on my own! But whatever works for ya know?!

  5. YUMMY breakfast…I so had that as a mini dessert last night πŸ™‚

    I know I might be the only one, but I’m rooting for Vienna! Tenley reminds me of the energizer bunny…she is so peppy and happy all the freakin’ time!
    lol

    have a great day,
    Sara

  6. What a fabulous breakfast! I’m a fan of the Bachelor and out of the 2 girls left, I like Tenley. I read realitysteve.com though, so we’ll see what happens.

  7. healthy schmelthy–that looks awesome!! those tortillas are great too, so versitile πŸ™‚

    TEAM TENLEY!

  8. Yummy breakfast! I agree 100%, breakfast = meal eaten before 9am!!

  9. Chocolate for b fast sounds good to me.

  10. Hey, how do you like the Jospehs tortillas? Ive tried the wraps and pitas but never the tortillas!

  11. I go through phases where I don’t care for group exercise classes or when I do. I never really liked group lifting classes, but right now I ONLY want to do the classes for the fact that it is mindless but still a great workout. I’m doing Group Power tomorrow for the first time actually. πŸ˜€

    And I hope Tenley wins but I doubt she will.

  12. I read Jake’s interview on People.com and even though I like Tenley more, it just seems like he’s going to pick Vienna.

  13. Well, I don’t really think he should pick either of them, mainly because I was Team Ali 100% BUT if I had to chose one I would pick Tenley. Vienna just so….ugh. I did think it was funny when on the WTA special, Gia said that Tenley “sh*ts rainbows.” It had me laughing soo hard. Anyway, I’ll stop rambling. Here hoping Ali is the next Bachelorette πŸ™‚

  14. What a perfect way to start of National Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day!!

  15. SO FUNNY! I use the EXACT same chocolate chips and have been eating a whole wheat tortilla with half peanut butter/half chocolate as a snack almost every day for the last few weeks. I agree with you- it’s SO YUMMY!!
