The Ultimate Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

ultimate pb&j sandwich

Peanut butter. Love it or hate it (and I find that people usually fall into one boat or the other!), you can't deny that it's a convenient option. Creamy, crunchy, or whipped, it's got texture, flavor, and, best of all, protein! Paired with its BFF jelly or its other pal, chocolate, it makes for a hearty and relatively healthy mid-day meal or nosh.

Today is National Peanut Butter Day and we're celebrating the ultimate snack food with a few updates on the traditional PB&J sandie. Upgrade your lunchbox game with these fun, creative, and yummy ideas. (And get the latest pediatrician-recommended guidelines for introducing your child to peanuts and peanut products, HERE.)

Shape It or Cut It
A cookie cutter instantly transforms a plain ole sandwich into a work of edible art. It's amazing how a heart-shaped PB&J can actually taste better.

A standard PB&J is fine and all, but pressed in a Panini maker, it's next-level delicious. Ooey-gooey, warm, and toasty it's crispy on the outside and melted perfection on the inside.

Swap Out Your Bread for Toaster Waffles via Ready Set Eat
Instead of white or wheat bread, try smearing your peanut butter and jelly on two toaster-oven waffles. It'll have the crunch and subtle sweetness you crave.
