I ate this sandwhich everyday when I worked (And I ate it just now for old time's sake. MMMMM). It's nummy. The microwave version makes the apples soft and reminds me of a PBJ Apple Pie Sandwhich. The skillet version keeps the apples crispier. I highly recommend Granny Smiths (I'm biased) and feel free to adjust ingredients to your taste. I use Smuckers sugar free jam. I've tried blackberry, apricot, and strawberry. As for the PB, you can buy it at Trader Joe's or at Each 2 tbsp. serving is 100 cals and 2.5g fat! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. LIGHTLY toast bread- just enough to firm it.
  2. Core the apple and cut in half.
  3. Set one half aside and thinly slice one half.
  4. Coarsely chop the other.
  5. Spread jam on one side, PB on the other.
  6. Place apple slices evenly over on top of one slice of toast.
  7. Sprinkle 1 tsp (or more) cinnamon, a pinch of both the allspice and ginger.
  8. Place other toast on top, spread side down of course.
  9. You have two options: Make it like a grilled cheese, or microwave it for one minute.
  10. Meanwhile, while cooking, place chopped apples in a ziploc with remaining spices and shake to evenly to coat.
  11. You have options here as well: You can add them to the skillet, nuke them for a few seconds, or eat as is!
  12. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorites! I use canned "no added sugar" apple pie filling. Yum! Also good in a wrap with some cream cheese or cottage cheese added.

An interesting sandwich. I have had grilled PB&J sandwiches in the past, but hadn't considered the addition of apples. I used a multi-grain bread, an all natural peanut butter, homemade chokecherry jelly (not sugar-free, but soooo good), and a Granny Smith apple. I cut the cinnamon back to just a sprinkle and omitted the allspice and ginger. A full teaspoon of the cinnamon would have been far to bitter for my taste, and I feared that the other spices would have also seemed overpowering. I slathered the outside of the sandwich with butter and grilled. I like the crispy bread, the creamy, melted peanut butter and the contrast of tart apples and sweet jelly. I would omit the spices in the future.
