What better day to share one of my favorite PB&J combos with you then National Peanut Butter Day! This Grilled Peanut Butter Jam Nana Sandwich is my jam! Do people even still say that? A likes the name and S she just gives me one of those teenage looks. While last summer wasn’t the first time I made this Grilled Peanut Butter Jam Nana Sandwich but it was something magical about it last summer when we made it over the campfire, and then again, and to the point that I was making them for the whole group one night. It didn’t stop there. I wasn’t sure if it was the homemade sourdough that made it so different, the campfire, or the vanilla bean ghee we used. So this called for some testing, and lots of taste testing!
First I made it at home on the stove/griddle and yep still good. Then I tried it with coconut oil instead of the vanilla bean ghee and it wasn’t the same but still good. Then I tried it with another bread, Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Heritage Bread, using both ghee and coconut oil and yep still delicious. One morning craving it I even made toast, smeared it with peanut butter, swirled it with jam, and then topped it with caramelized bananas and it hit the spot. This combo is a winner no matter how you spread it, make it, or cut it! We won’t even get into how to cut the sandwich, do whatever works for you.
There is just something about a classic pb&j a craving I don’t think I’ll ever out grow. I go in phases where I eat them and then years back about 11 years ago when there wasn’t a single gluten free bread I liked and I didn’t have one for years but still had peanut butter oats or things with fruit or jam like my PB&J Overnight Oats, although back then they weren’t overnight. With the fresh sourdough if the timing is right and it’s nice and fresh it screams to be smeared with peanut butter and jelly. Even my husband makes them regularly. A Grilled Peanut Butter Jam Nana Sandwich is just an upgraded version of the classic, or if this isn’t your jam there is always peanut butter, banana, and honey another classic combo from my childhood.
