This is my play on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, dessert style. It wasn’t my intent to create a completely raw version of the bread, peanut butter and jelly… it was more about the flavors. My dear friend Gina, is going to be hosting a gathering of colleges Saturday morning and wanted to supply some snacks that fit somewhere right in between breakfast and lunch foods. So, I thought I would create some peanut butter crackers and a berry jam for them as part of their snacks. I mean, who doesn’t like peanut butter and jelly?
I quickly wanted to give a shout-out to our guest appearance on this recipe posting today… drumroll please… my right hand! (see below) ‘and the crowd goes wild’ Yes folks, you never see my right hand in my photos… as I am a lefty. But a few days ago my husband came home with a surprise for me… it was a really cool micro planer!
A new kitchen tool! I put that darn thing to use that very afternoon. But, in my attempt to remove the “safety cover”, I grated the heck out of my left thumb. lol. I took a picture of blood running down my hand and texted it to my husband… “The grater works wonderfully honey, thank you hehe” It is going to bandaged up for a bit, so during this time, I am really trying hard to ambidextrous. :)
Lets get back to our treat here. These crackers are amazing all on their own. They are sturdy, crunchy and rich in peanut butter and banana flavor. I decided to sandwich in some fresh raw honey peanut butter that Bob and I made, along with a vibrant red layer of Strawberry Raspberry Jelly. If you are allergic to peanut butter you could use almond butter in its place. This is a wonderful treat that will satisfy both the belly and heart.
yields 36 crackers – 1 tray
Jelly: yields 1 1/2 cups
Peanut butter layer:
Because I can’t help myself, I took my silicone oven pad which is loaded with tiny squares and
pressed it on part of my cracker dough to see if you would leave a pattern… yep it did. haha
