Peanut Butter and Jelly, Naturally

Peanut Butter and Jelly has always been one of my favorite sandwiches, though my jelly has always been strawberry preserves. I love the bites of tart berries mixed in with the peanut butter. Happily, my sons love it, too. When they were little, I tried to serve them one for breakfast, and they thought I was crazy; after all peanut butter and jelly was for lunch. We still laugh about it until this day. I decided to re-invent this already perfect combination with a healthier version. I made my own Natural Peanut Butter consisting of just peanuts, and Healthy Strawberry Spread and replaced the sugar with a little bit of honey. I stopped short of baking my bread but made sure to get a perfect loaf of white.

Time-Saving Tips: Make the Peanut Butter and Healthy Strawberry Spread up to a week in advance and store in the refrigerator.

Let's see what we need.

We're ready to make the sandwich.

I guess you pretty much know how this works. I like to spread the "jelly" on one piece of bread and peanut butter on the other.

And then put the two pieces together.

It's ready! Total deliciousness every time.
