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.
So, Peanut Butter & Co. asks, “how would you revolutionize the PB&J .” They sent me two jars of peanut butter along with jars of their Seriously Strawberry Jam and Rip Roaring Raspberry Preserves. 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.
Coconut flour mini flat bread
Ingredients (2 slices):
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch salt
- Mix all the ingredients together.
- Split the doughy mixture into halves. Form a ball with each half and flatten to form a slice. Instead of using a baking sheet, I flattened the dough into silicone muffin cups. This helps create uniform shapes for the two slices.
- Bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes.
Assemble the sandwich, as desired.
I covered one slice with Old fashioned Crunchy and the other with Seriously Strawberry Jam, and stacked them together.
