Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich

“What? You’ve never eaten an apple peanut butter sandwich?!” declared my young friend Aldie (11) upon hearing that no, I had not, and indeed somehow that rite of childhood had passed me by. “They’re so easy! And good. And good for you,” she added. You know what? She’s right. PB&J, move over. It’s time for PB&A.

For those of us who might have any lingering doubts as to how truly easy this sandwich is to make, Alden has prepared a short video on exactly how to make one. (Food Network, watch out!)

Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich Recipe

  • Prep time: 4 minutes

One apple will yield enough apple slices for 2 to 4 sandwiches, depending on the size of the apple and the size of the bread.



  • Apple
  • Peanut Butter
  • Sliced Bread


1 Quarter, core, and slice the apple into thin slices.

2 Spread peanut butter over one slice of bread, going all the way to the edges. Make sure to use enough peanut butter so that the apple slices stick.

3 Place apple slices over the peanut butter in a single layer. Top with another slice of bread. Cut in half.

    Add me to the list of people who have never tried an apple peanut butter sandwich! I always struggled to get the right ratio of peanut butter to apple when eating them as slices… but this idea is FANTASTIC!! I can’t wait to try it out… thank you Alden!!

    Adorable, and I couldn’t agree more! If you add a drizzle of honey and a little sprinkle of cinnamon, your apple & PB will be even better…and PB & strawberries is great too.

    Love this! I’ve only ever tried the PB&J and PB&Banana sandwich variety. This sounds lovely! Cute video too.

    Excellent video – you’re right – the next Food Network star in the making!
    Banana butter and almond butter sandwich is good too!
