Peanut Butter and Jelly Panini

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Missy1toe

This recipe is simplicity itself and delicious because of the heat. The panini maker puts beautiful grill lines on the bread and melts the peanut butter and jelly inside. This is as different from a regular PB&J as a scooter is from a bicycle. Try it, you and your kids will love it.

Made for Pick a Chef Spring 2008. I didn't expect this to be so incredible; both the PB and J change composition entirely - you need to try it to see how good it is! I used sprouted whole grain bread and cut it with a cookie cutter for fun. I will warn you that this makes a big mess-I have the panini maker with the plates that go in the dishwasher but if you don't, get ready for some scrubbing! Highly recommended!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slice bread (I prefer multi-grain for nutrition)
  • real peanut butter (from Wholefoods of Wild Oats)
  • grape jelly


  1. Spread peanut butter liberally on one slice of bread.
  2. Spread jelly on the other slice.
  3. Put the two pieces together.
  4. Place the sandwich on a pre-heated panini maker.
  5. Close the top and cook three minutes.
  6. Remove, slice in half and serve.
  7. (If you have toddlers, you might wait a minute to let the bread cool slightly for them).
