My Favorite PB&J

I just had to share one of our absolute favorite lunches that we enjoy a few times every week and are the most requested sandwich for the boys’ lunch boxes. We all love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but making them with our leftover Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes takes them to a whole new level of yumminess that we just can’t get enough of.

It’s not just our boys that love these fun sandwiches; Brandon and I are obsessed with them too! We’ll purposely make an extra batch of our favorite pancakes (in mini form though) on a Saturday morning to use for these sandwiches that day for lunch and throughout the week. So so yummy!

No sandwich bread? No problem!

Whip up a batch of our healthy Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes and then use the leftovers from breakfast and sandwich them together with your favorite peanut butter and jelly to create one of the most amazing peanut butter and jellies you’ve ever had!
