As I sit here indulging in an after dinner treat/desert of some almond butter and cool whip (both low in carbs), I longed for one of my ultimate peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Since childhood I have enjoyed pb&j and through my adulthood that fondness has remained.
My ultimate pb&j was like a club sandwich or triple decker made with three pieces of white bread. First rule is it needs to be fresh white bread, softer the better, first day wonder bread style. The top piece of bread gets the peanut butter, chunky or super chunk a MUST!! Apply generously then attach what will be the mid piece of bread to the bottom of the peanut butter section. Now the jelly, plain old welches grape, keep your marmalade or jams, just give me plain old grape jelly BUT sprinkle some raisin in the jelly once spread. Yes, my ultimate PB&J has three pieces of bread with chunky peanut butter AND chunky jelly.
Pour a big ole glass of ice cold milk and sit back and enjoy your simple but delicious creation. I guess that pretty much also sums up why I got diabetes and don’t eat carbs or sugar anymore! Lol
So what is your preferred variation of this simple yet delicious treat?
