“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 :-)

    my favorite is PB and onion. It is yummy! Altho I have to admit I put onions in just about everything. My husband says the only thing I haven’t put onions in is my ice cream, and he is sure one day that I will try that too.
