The peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an iconic sandwich that’s enjoyed by people of all ages. There’s the classic peanut butter and jelly or jam spread between two slices of bread. Common choices include grape jelly or strawberry jam. Enjoy it as is, toasted, grilled, or even deep fried. Then there’s the many variations on the sandwich, adding ingredients like sliced bananas or apples, or substituting other foods in place of the bread. In addition, you can just take the peanut butter and jelly flavor combination and incorporate it into granola bars, oatmeal, smoothies, cookies, cakes, and more. The creations are endless.

I decided to simply put together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but instead of the regular white or wheat toast, the bread is made with coconut flour and resemble mini flat breads. The coconut bread requires minimal effort and only a handful of ingredients.
