PB and J, two ways!
This is a new series we wanted to introduce to our blog, We will keep them short and sweet. Normally when we snack we try to keep the snacks quick, simple and easy to put together.
To kick off this series our snack of choice for the month of April 2017 was Peanut Butter and Strawberry jam on toast. A classic kids snack with a spin.
Start off by toasting your bread of choice, we’ve been loving this Ezekiel bread (we have the Low sodium version) This bread can be found in your local grocery stores in the freezer section. We love this sprouted grain bread, it really has been a game changer for us. We keep the bread in the freezer and when we want to enjoy a slice or two we heat it right up in the toaster. Honestly it may sound daunting to have to defrost the bread but it takes no time at all. We’ve even toasted some up on the stove top using a nonstick pan on medium heat. Since the bread has no preservatives (which is one of the things we love about it) leaving it in the freezer helps it keep longer.
Next choose your jam/conserve/preserve of choice, we picked up ours from whole foods it’s the 365 brand.
As for the peanut butter we went with the creamy version, Trader Joe’s also carries great options for both items.
Once your bread is all nice and toasted just apply as much or as little of peanut butter and jelly to it and enjoy! We know it’s so simple and takes us back to our childhoods, we just took it and tried to make it a bit ‘healthier’.
Tip – Second Option – PB and J Quesadilla style.
If you want something lower in carbs then you can grab yourself a low carb whole wheat tortilla and toast it up in a pan on the stove top and apply some peanut butter and jelly on one of each side, and enjoy this simple on the go PB &J.
(We ran out of the whole wheat tortillas that’s why there aren’t any photos of this version.)
We love PB and J sandwiches! Hope you all enjoyed this Snack of the Month Segment 🙂
