This is a great version of your basic peanut butter sandwich! Applesauce is used in place of jelly. Kids love it, and it has less sugar than regular jelly so it is much better for you.

I am 66 and have been eating this all of my life.. When I was a kid and was sick my Mom would grill a crunchy PB and mayo sandwich on plain ole white bread and serve it with a glass of icy cold milk. Today whenever I make one I want to put on my flannel jammies and wool socks so I can have this extreme comfort food. Read More

I'll try anything with peanut butter because I love the stuff so much but this just wasn't so good. Don't get me wrong I love applesauce too but I think these two things are best off separate.... Read More

This is good especially toasted. I kind of prefer apple butter (you can get it without sugar) but my kids liked this. They also liked having a little extra applesauce on the side to dunk the sandwich in. For those with wheat allergies this translates well if you are using spelt bread--the spelt bread is able to withstand the extra moisture from the applesauce better than wheat bread. Read More

This was good but I prefer classic PB&J sandwiches. After reading other reviews I mixed the applesauce with the peanut butter ahead of time then took the extra precaution of lightly toasting the bread to keep the applesauce from making the bread soggy. After mixing with the peanut butter it would've been fine on untoasted. I used honey wheat which is sturdier than your average white bread. If you'd like a less sweet PB&J sandwich this is definitely what you're looking for. Glad I tried it! Read More

I have not eaten this combination as a sandwich but for years my husband and I have made toast with peanut butter and applesauce(that is cold from the refrigerator). Cinnamon applesauce I might add! It is the best! Read More

I did not care for this sandwich. It tasted a bit too dry so I ended up dipping the sandwich in more applesauce. The combination of these two ingredients in a sandwich just didn't suit my taste. I'm sorry I wasn't able to give this recipe a good review but I am glad to see others enjoyed the sandwich. Read More

I've used both cinnamon and regular applesuace for these but the cinnamon is better. I wasn't sure if I would like this but it's a new favorite now and makes a quick lunch. Read More

One of my favorites. I suggest using Dave's Killer bread toasting your bread use either natural peanut butter or almond butter and either homemade or organic cinnamon applesauce. This is both my kids' and my favorite. Great breakfast food to jumpstart your day. Read More

Always a favorite in our family! We have used peanut butter and applesauce on sandwiches for years...as well as on pancakes and waffles. Best toasted and thicker bread....and does help on toast to kinda mix pb and applesauce together so it doesn't run off...as it is slippery. But so very yummy. Read More
