Today’s This Week’s Cravings theme is NUTELLA DAY (PEANUT BUTTER, ALMOND BUTTER & MORE) and I’m sharing Peanut Butterflies, which made the kids go crazy with joy. This is a really simple recipe adapted from a really fun cookbook I found at the thrift store for $1, the Disney Royal Recipe Collection. The kids love to look through it and find recipes that they can help make.
The original for this recipe is called “Circle-wiches” and is a traditional two slice of bread sandwich cut into a circle and filled with peanut butter, bananas and raisins. Not having an appropriately-sized circle cookie cutter and not trusting my ability to cut a circle that didn’t look wonky, I dug out our butterfly cookie cutter (you could use any shape you want!). Since my bread was the shorter homemade variety, I cut one wing out of each slice of bread and made open-faced butterfly sandwiches.
- 2 slices Wheat Bread
- 2-3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 4 slices of banana
- 2 tablespoons raisins
The kids went absolutely nuts for these. And I actually thought they were pretty tasty, too.
