3 Simple Peanut Butter Pairings
August 30, 2016
One of the best things about peanut butter is that you can eat it any time of the day. Paired with a few equally delicious ingredients, Jif® Peanut Butter can be part of a lunch, a snack, or a scrumptious evening treat.
Banana Almond Butter and Jelly Sandwich
Consider this a yummy peanut butter and jelly sandwich for grown-ups—or for your kid at heart. Spread a thick layer of Jif Almond Butter on one slice of a baguette. Then add some Smucker's® Natural Concord Grape Fruit Spread to another slice. Top with banana slices and shredded coconut, and live the peanut butter dream.
On-the-Go Energy Bites
Tart and sweet with a little crunch—these bites are full of flavor and texture. To make, combine uncooked oatmeal, sliced almonds, and reduced-sugar dried cranberries with Jif Peanut Butter and Smucker's Strawberry Jam, divide in a muffin tin, and refrigerate until firm. This delectable no-bake twist on the classic pairing is a perfect midday pick-me-up.
Round and round we go, where we’ll snack, nobody knows! Core a red apple and slice crosswise into rounds. Top slices with Jif Creamy Peanut Butter and some yummy Smucker’s Concord Grape Jelly. Sprinkle evenly with oats and chocolate chips for a crunchy, chewy, kid-friendly bonus!
