Peanut Butter, Jelly, & Dried Apricot Sandwich

Print Recipe

It's hard for us to admit that improvements can be made to a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, but apparently it's true. This exceedingly simple twist on the classic adds a textural element that you didn't even realize was missing from the original incarnation. Adding some dried fruit, be it apricots or peaches, or even apples, adds a dense chew to each bite that makes it so incredibly satisfying. Power up before a big game with one of these or power down with one at the end of a school day.
