Ok, I realize this is a totally kid-friendly recipe, but I couldn't help but share it. I read this in a romance book I was reading...one of the characters made this. It didn't have specific measurements so I kind of played around with it until it came out. I don't really measure the honey, I usually just pour it in until it looks good but I had to give an amount. You can adjust ingredients to your taste. My kids love this recipe...and I have to admit, for a peanut butter sandwich I enjoyed it as well.
- Mix peanut butter, carrots, honey, sunflower seeds and raisins in a bowl.
- Spread mixture on a slice of bread.
- Add sliced bananas on top.
- Top with slice of bread.
- Can store any extra mixture for another time.
Very good - I made this in a whole wheat tortilla for a healthy pack-able lunch. This worked great to take along on a long bike ride. I will definitely be making this again, thanks for posting.
Very yummy! I realized while I was making it that I didn't have any sunflower seeds so I improvised with chopped walnuts. This is a great breakfast or lunch, and definately not just for kids! Thank you!
Darnit, my review never showed up and I have to rewrite it... Made this last week and just got a chance to review it. I was in a really big hurry so didn't measure anything, just estimated. I halved this and tossed a couple slices of white bread into a baggie and mixed this up in a separate bowl. I only had pre-sliced, frozen bananas so opted to mash them into the pb mixture. I used 3/4 to 1 banana worth of slices. I used approx 1 to 1.5 T of honey, 1/8 cup of roasted/salted sunflower nuts, 1/8 cup shredded carrot, 1/8 cup raisins, and 1/2 - 3/4 cup Jif Creamy. I tossed it all into my lunch cooler and spread on the bread at lunchtime. I must admit this 30 year-old kid really enjoyed this. All the flavors went very well together and so did the various textures. If you choose to mash the banana instead of laying slices on each sandwich, refrigerating this will turn the banana brown (so this will take on a really ugly dark brown color), but it doesn't affect taste. Also refrigerating this might cause the raisins to get hard and chewy (it did to mine). This pb salad spread goes a long way depending on how much you want on each sandwich. I've eaten this many times since from the same batch. Makes a good and healthier version of a pb sandwich withotu sacrificing taste. Thanks for sharing this idea and making it into a good sandwich recipe. :)
