Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich Recipe

Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich Recipe

When I had morning sickness snacking on peanut butter was one of those things that helped ease my symptoms.  It wasn’t long before I was tired of plain old peanut butter sandwiches so I had to come up with some creative ways to eat peanut butter.  One of my absolute favorites is this apple peanut butter sandwich that I came up with…with the help of my mom who suggested adding a little nutmeg.  Thanks, Mom!

Feel free to adjust the sugar and spices to suit your tastes but don’t skip the grilling part.  Grilling the apples is what makes them soft and so yummy!  I hope you’ll give the recipe a try and if you do please let me know how you liked it.  Thanks!
