Gooey Grilled PB&J
You can either use the bread recipe from my previous blog, or your favorite whole grain bread. (Keep in mind that the purpose of this sandwich is to give your kids the best nutrition from a fun meal...so make sure that the bread doesn't have any refined grains or white sugar).
-Spread one side of each piece with some coconut oil, flip them over, and spread the Acai Berry Jam (you can get the recipe from a previous blog post) on one side, and organic almond or sunbutter on the other (make sure you're getting "peanut butters" made without hydrogenated oils or sugars...and raw nuts are the absolute best)
-Press them together and grill in a panini maker, George Foreman Grill, or just in a saute pan until golden brown!
-Serve with a nice, big glass of unsweetened almond milk, a side of carrots or celery (with the Chocolate Banana PB Frosting Recipe mentioned in a previous blog), and a wet paper towel!
-Your kids are going to gobble up this warm, gooey, messy, HEALTHY sandwich, and never know that they're having something healthy for their bodies!! Good work, Mom!!
-Note: For a little extra fun...before grilling, get some fun shaped cookie cutters and cut the sandwiches into fun shapes, or letters to spell words...then grill! Even the most skeptical eater can't resist a heart or dinosaur-shaped sandwich!!
