Peanut butter ‘n jelly sandwiches are an incredibly popular lunchtime staple for kids all over the United States. I remember eating in the cafeteria as a young buck, when half the kids seemed to bring PBJ sandwiches to school every day. I was honestly more into peanut butter and honey sandwiches than jelly growing up. I still liked jelly, but I just preferred honey on my sandwiches, so that’s what I went with most of the time. Over the years, my preferences shifted away from PBH’s and PBJ’s to turkey, tuna, and BLT’s.
Thanks to many of your responses on my questions from the newsletter signup, I realize how many people want recipes that are kid-friendly. I know how confused I was when I first had to go gluten-free, so it makes perfect sense that many parents feel the same way when finding out their kid has celiac disease. I am going to be making gluten-free versions of many childhood favorites, from mac ‘n cheese to chicken nuggets and everything in between. Here is my first time creating a gluten-free peanut butter and jelly sandwich:
Ingredients (for one sandwich):
- 2 slices of gluten-free bread (Whole Foods and Udi’s are my favs)
- Peanut Butter
1. Slather peanut butter on one piece of bread and jelly on the other.
2. Put the two pieces of bread together.
3. Cut in half.
4. Serve and enjoy!
Yes, I know writing a recipe for something so easy seems a bit silly. However, I am gonna start posting more kid-friendly recipes, and starting with something super simple, yet still popular, seemed like a good idea. It also tasted great, so I’m happy with the choice!
