Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls – Servings: 1

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp of your favorite peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp of your favorite jam, jelly, or preserves
  • 2 slices of bread (we love whole wheat or white-wheat for this recipe!)

Directions:

  1. Remove the crusts from bread (save for breadcrumbs in another recipe). With a rolling pin or large soup can, completely flatten bread.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of fruit spread on each slice of bread.
  3. Roll each slice into a tight spiral. Cut each spiral into 4 pieces.

There are so many fun ways to change this recipe up. Some ideas include:

  • Swap peanut butter for almond butter or Nutella
  • Use sprinkles or granola to give the illusion of “roe” on top of the sushi
  • If using Nutella, swap fruit spread for coconut flakes, marshmallow spread, or thinly sliced bananas!
