I grew up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I mean who hasn’t? They are quick, easy and satisfying and certainly a majority favorite. With school back in full swing, it’s time to give the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich an upgrade. It’s the perfect gooey treat that packs well for a back to school lunch or even an after school snack. Not to mention, this version of the classic is full of nutrition.
And if your little one is allergic to peanuts, the use of almond butter in this sandwich is a definite plus.
