These snack-wiches or un-wiches for lack of a better name are SO much fun because they switch up the old peanut butter and jelly routine. I just did a segment on Studio 5 show demoing how to make 5 of them. You can check it out here. They were a huge hit on the show and are getting pinned all over the place. I think you will LOVE them as much as we do here at our house. Plus it is a sneaky way to get more fruits and veggies in your little ones as well as yourself. Isaiah favorite sandwiches are the apple and pear sandwiches with peanut butter and honey. These un-wiches are great for me as well because I can’t have wheat and I don’t love the taste or starchiness of most gluten free breads.
