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.

    Very creative! We’ve done peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but I never thought to add apple butter. Found you at Women Living Well.

      Yes! Do give it a try Gail and come back and let me know what you think. You never know what combination of ingredients are going to make it in a recipe because I prepare most things intuitively. That’s part of the fun!
