Today’s Recipe: Peanut Butter Berry–Wich
Peanut butter goes well with more than just jam, and this interesting combination proves it. This is delicious with whatever fruit is in season.
- 2 slices whole-wheat bread or Banana Bread
- 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon softened Neufchâtel (reduced-fat) cream cheese
- 2 medium strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1 teaspoon honey
Lay the bread slices on a work surface. Spread the peanut butter on one slice and the cream cheese on the other. Arrange strawberry slices in an even single layer on top of the peanut butter. Drizzle the honey on the berries and then place the other slice of bread with the cream cheese on top. Cut into halves or quarters. Recipe courtesy of Epicurious.com
