Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (a.k.a. PB&J) are the staple childhood sandwiches in the US. Kids eat it at home, take it in their lunchboxes to school and feel nostalgic about it when they grow up.
Even though this famous sandwich is not very well known elsewhere, peanut butter lovers from any destination could appreciate the comforting sweetness and richness of this combination. I know I did the first time I tried it! The sandwich I had also included slices of banana and strawberries, and it quickly became my go-to breakfast when in a hurry.
For this reason, I have decided to launch the PB&J sandwich in its Latin version: namely, turned into a burrito. Adding bananas and dried coconut to the basic peanut butter and peach jam recipe, I’ve brought some extra sweetness and Caribbean swagger into the preparation. Perhaps this will become the new kids’ favorite snack? Offer it to your children and let them decide!
