More About This Recipe
Like most kids, mine are head over heels for classic kid sandwiches like PB&J and fluffernutters. But why serve them on boring old bread?
These fun variations take those classic sammies and make them extra special.

1. PBJ Quesdadilla
Okay, there is no cheese in this version of the quesadilla. But kids will love when you spread peanut butter on one half of the quesadilla and jelly on the other. Fold over to sandwich it. You can serve it just like that or heat it for about 3 minutes per side. If you heat it though, be sure to check the temperature of the jelly before serving.
2. Fluffernutter Taco
Peanut Butter. Marshmallow fluff. A pancake. No, really. Heat up a pancake (for a quick version, use Pillsbury Frozen Pancakes) and spread marshmallow fluff on one half of the circle and peanut butter on the other. Then, fold it over and enjoy.
3. Peanut Butter Banana Biscuits
Oh sweet comfort. I adore biscuits … don’t you? Try turning this favorite kid sandwich into a biscuit creation. Simply split the biscuit in half (I use Pillsbury Simply Biscuits), and spread peanut butter on half. Top with banana and close it up.
