With school back in season, jazz up lunch with this fruity twist to traditional PB&J’s. All you need is a jar of natural almond butter (preferably unsweetened), ripe peaches, and sourdough or whole grain bread. For a little extra sweetness, add a drizzle of local honey on top!
Just a quick post for you all today as I have a bonus post coming your way tomorrow! This is one of those posts where I debated whether it’s too simple to post. But then I remembered that the whole point of this blog is to provide simple, healthy recipes to add some variety to your meals.
I love peanut butter sandwiches, with or without jelly. Yes, I’m one of those people who wanted my PB&J to be oozing with peanut butter and have just a slight spread of jelly. I also loved using banana slices instead of jelly or sometimes just a simple drizzle of honey on top of the peanut butter.
About a year ago I discovered the deliciousness of almond butter and banana sandwiches. And it got me thinking about other fruits that would be delicious with almond butter. Blueberries were an obvious favorite, but I was surprised to find how much I like the peach and almond butter combo.
As delicious as this is as a sandwich, my favorite way to eat this is as toast. However you eat it, I encourage you to indulge a bit and drizzle some local honey over the peach slices. For both the almond butter and honey, I used brands that I discovered at our local Farmer’s Market. Not only do I love supporting local businesses, but I’ve found the quality of these to be better than store bought. If you live in Colorado, I cannot recommend Bjorn’s Honey and PB Love Co. enough (and no, I’m in no way affiliated with either company).
If making toast, place bread in toaster first. Spread almond butter on bread, then place peach slices on top. Drizzle with honey. Top with remaining slice of bread (if making sandwich). Enjoy!
