Recipes: Peanut Butter and...

Last week I asked for ideas of fridge-less foods I could use on a peanut butter sandwich. Here’s some.

Smart Start
grade: B
Peanut butter and Smart Start cereal is a good flavor match. The crunch of the cereal is nice, but overall this sandwich is a little dry. Definitely have a glass of water handy.

Cranberry Sauce
grade: C-

Definitely edible, and it has the advantage of looking and feeling like traditional PB&J. But the peanut butter overpowers the taste of the cranberry sauce. Also, I can’t save any cranberry sauce for later and a whole can of cranberry sauce is hard to stomach in one sitting.

Apples and Honey
grade: A+

Apples are like jelly that hasn’t happened yet. This is a perfectly delicious blend of flavors. Very, very tasty. A strong recommendation.

Oatmeal and Sugar
grade: B+
Surprisingly tasty. It turns peanut butter into a hot sandwich, which is a melty treat. I found that the oatmeal needed a LOT of sugar to compete with the peanut butter flavor.

grade: B-
Decent. The flavors blend well, but are not thrilling. And dry.

Got a fridge-less recipe to share? Leave it in the comments!

A big thanks to Heather and my mom for their input on this.
