PB & Vitamin A Sandwich


A PB & J with a veggie vitamin boost. Apple can replace the carrot for a sweeter sandwich, but make sure you remember to spread peanut butter on both sides, so the filling doesn’t fall out.This recipe comes to us from Meredith of Pittsburgh, PA.

Serves 1

  • 2 slices of whole wheat or whole grain bread, lightly toasted
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1 tablespoon raisins or dried cranberries, cherries or dried fruit of choice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Spread the peanut butter on both slices of toasted bread.

Spread the grated carrot over the peanut butter on one of the slices. Dot the carrots with the dried fruit, spreading them around evenly.

Drizzle the honey over the carrots and fruit. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover with the other slice of peanut butter coated bread.
