{Recipe Redux} Nut Butter and Fruit Sandwich

After months of traveling, I am finally back on track with participating in the Recipe Redux monthly theme posts, and oddly enough this month’s topic is: Have Snacks. Will Travel.

My number one travel snack is peanut butter and jelly - or better yet - peanut butter with REAL fruit.

Using bananas is always a classic take on this sammy, but I like to experiment and use what is in season. And nothing could be more in season than blueberries at the moment. They pop and squirt in your mouth! A lot more action than plain ole jelly can claim.

Just the other day I went blueberry picking at a local farm and returned home with TONS of blueberries. Just $2.50 a pound! Colleen and I returned home with 2 - 7 gallon buckets. We gave some away and Colleen made 2 fantastic blueberry crumbles. The rest are frozen and ready to eat in no time.

Get creative and use different nut butters with different fruits. Sunbutter with thinly sliced peaches. Almond butter with strawberries.

This healthy travel snack packs nicely into a sandwich bag and doesn’t need refrigeration.

    Welcome back to ReDux - good to have you back on board. I adore PB&J and PB&Banana so why have I never thought to use other fresh fruit as well? Totally going to make this tomorrow before my flight - have all the ingredients on hand!

    This is a great idea! We get great blueberries here in NJ-grown in Hammonton, about 20 minutes from where we are in the summer. I love the PB & J idea to travel with (doesn’t spoil and my 4 kids will eat these sandwiches), but i love even more your idea on the blueberries in place of jelly. Fantastic!

    So glad to have you back to ReDux! And my kids would adore this sammie! We have lots of fresh blackberries from our neighbor…perfect in a sandwich!

      It’s great to be back! Blackberries sound just as good - glad to hear that your little ones are eating berries!

    I love the use of real fruit with this PB sandwich. So creative! I’d love some dried fruit in there too :) Options seem endless…

      Dried fruit sounds great too. A lot less messy :)
