“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.

    I remove the skin from the apples then chop them up in food processor and layer this on top of the peanut butter -which makes it edible and easily digested for even the youngest kids -love my PB& A sandwiches :-)

    A star is born!! I have never had the pleasure of this combo either. I shall try it with granny smith apples cause that’s what on my counter. Toasted good wheat bread and creamy PB……………..sounds good to me, thanks.

    Great video!! Here’s one I bet you say yuck to unless you try it. Peanut Butter, Crisp Sweet Pickles (Homemade is best) and Mayo. I got this from my father and have eaten it all my life and I am 61. The last guy I shared this with laughed at me until I got him to try a bite. The last time I saw his wife she said he had eaten every sweet pickle in the house!
    Enjoy..I dare you.

    My son is 19 and we have eaten apples and peanut butter since he was 2. I have also made them into sandwiches, but I like adding a slice of American Cheese as well. It is so yummy and contains foods from almost all the food groups. If you like trying new things… try peanut butter and raisin sandwiches. They are real good too (don’t be shy with the raisins).

    I have a peanut butter and banana sandwich almost everyday! I use high fiber, low fat bread and it fills me up for hours! I will have to add this great variation to my repertoire! Alden looks like a super chef in the making, just following in your footsteps, how fun!
