RAWsome Tip Tuesday: Get Your PB and J On!

Everything has a day! And I imagine most little rawk stars would heartily celebrate a day dedicated to the sammie that defines childhood: Today is National PB and J Day!!

Is there a more perfect marriage of comfort flavor?

But commercial peanut butters can be full of naughty partially-hydrogenated oils and jellies are jammin’ with sugar. Blech. That’s nothing to dance about.

Here is our raw AB and J recipe that is full of nutrients and flavah! The bread does need to be dehydrated so if you want to save time, choose your own sprouted bread to use.

Let’s Fill Those Rumbly Tummies!
