My kids love to spread peanut butter on their apples, so one day I thought I would take a favorite of theirs and just tweak it a little bit....voila, a peanut butter and apple sandwich. PB and J can get boring after a while and this provides a healthy alternative.

My wife loves this sandwich but I use a cheese slicer to make thin slices of apple to place between the slices of the peanut-buttered bread. Read More

I used to just slice a thin layer and place in the sandwich. Slicing is a really neat idea! For lunches I mixed the shredded apple in a little lemon juice to keep the apple from turning brown. Read More

An even healthier idea leave out the bread. Use sliced apples to dip into a little container of PB or cut apple in half core then fill each side with PB & put back together before bagging for lunch. Just pull apart before eating. Also celery sticks filled with PB or cream cheese with raisins on top are a healthy delicious snack. Read More

Simple and delicious - great for a quick snack! I love peanut butter and apples. It not only tastes good but it's good for you! I toasted my whole grain bread so the peanut butter go a little "melty" and instead of shredding the apple I just sliced it extra thin. I added just a bit of cinnamon to the apple and it was yummy. I can't wait to try this with crunchy peanut butter! Read More

Wanted to make another suggestion...try this combination on a tortilla and eat as a wrap. You could also try for a change using shredded celery or carrot in place of the apple. Read More

I call this the "apple pie" sandwich! I don't shred the apple but just cut really thin slices and stack as many as i can on the bread. I PB both sides so it will stick together and I add a little cinnamon!! YUMMMMMMM!!!!! Read More

i was delighfully surprised at how good this sandwich was! I used natural peanut butter and granny smith apples (the only apples I had on hand). The refreshing crunch and taste of the apple added a nice flavor. Will definately make again when we need a quick lunch! Read More

We love this sandwich and have made them for years with Granny Smith apples and crunchy peanut butter! Absolutely a nice alternative to the regular PB&J. We also sometimes substitute banana's for the apple! That is fantastic too! Read More
