Trade-Proof School Lunch Sandwich

  • 4 slices bread
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice or apple juice
  • 1/4 cup apples, chopped fine
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts, chopped walnuts, or crushed Cheerios

Put the peanut butter and juice in a bowl and whisk together until smooth, then add the apples, raisins, and whatever you choose for the ‘crunch’ element.  Spoon mixture onto bread slices, spread out and top with second slice of bread to make sandwich.

The orange juice keeps the apples from getting too brown, but be sure to wrap tightly in plastic.

This is a favorite sandwich of ours because it’s so versatile.  If we don’t have nuts in the house, we just crush up cereal like Cheerios.   Peanut butter and apples go naturally together and this way you can turn them into a filling lunch.  Use a good whole wheat bread for extra nutrition.
