panino al burro di arachidi e gelatina/peanut butter and jelly sandwich

The quintessential brown bag lunch…a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Who didn’t find one, mushed next to an apple, in their sack as a kid at some point? Sitting next to classmates eating square cardboard pizza, some of us garbley chatted about this and that as our tongues admanantly stuck to the roof of our mouths because of the peanut butter bread moosh mix.

Ahhh, the memories.  Even with my fond lunchtime PBJ sandwich recollections, I do believe I am determined to see it cross over to meals. Remember my play date with peanut flour that resulted in Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes? And the sandwich’s cousin, PBB (banana) put into a cupcake, as Peanut Butter & Banana Cupcakes. You can imagine my excitement when I saw the Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars on Apple a Day. How did I miss the Bon Appetit recipe?

The voice behind Apple a Day, a teacher, positioned her post around the first day of school. Perfect…for her and me! Since I like to bring baked goodies into work for my new staff (which I can do easily now with such a small group), I thought these bars were ideal.

Packed and ready to go!

I doubled the recipe and baked them in a larger pan than Kelsey did, according to her note. So, my weren’t as thick. But, no biggie….these bars are super adaptable for preferences. And, they will disappear.  Peanut/Peanut butter lovers were asking for the recipe, a sure sign of delicious success.
