PB n’ J – Not Just for the Kids

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!

PB n’ J Awesomeness

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?

P.S. – Have you entered my Eat.Think.Smile Giveaway yet? Get to it! Contest ends tomorrow at 8pm (EST).

    I still enjoy the PB&J. During college training trips, it was my staple post-morning workout snack before hitting the beach. Instead of making two sandwiches though, I would make a double decker. I would use 3 slices of bread and stack them so the middle piece had PB on each side. It was, and still is, a glorious creation!

    I love pb&j. It’s really good as-is, but I try to healthify it a bit by using sliced apple, sliced banana, or berries in place of the j. I have to admit though, Trader Joe’s has an awesome fig butter that I’ve been using lately. Deeeelish!
