As you may know, we are currently in the midst of National Peanut Butter Lovers Month – something I am more than happy to celebrate. With that in mind and with knowing I am all about quick and easy recipes it should come as no surprise that I am here promoting the classic peanut butter and jelly to you all. However, today we will be putting a bit of a spin on it!
First change: Slightly toast the bread. I.e. – It should be warm and almost crunchy, but not darkened at all.
Second change: Add a layer of sliced apples (I used Honey Crisp) in between the peanut butter and jelly layers.
Voila, peanut butter and jelly fit for the kiddos and the grown-ups!
Let’s be honest now, do you still enjoy your traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Do you add anything to it like honey, banana slices, or something else I haven’t thought of? My parents tell me that as a child I insisted on eating PB&J with a slice of ham in the middle. I have no recollection of this and that sounds SO disgusting to me now. Did any of you eat anything that gross growing up?
