Toasted Peanut Butter Sandwich


Another comforting childhood favorite! My mom, kids, and I still love this easy lunch (or breakfast).

Here’s what you’ll need!
Ingredients:
2 slices bread
1 tsp. margarine or butter
3 Tbsp. peanut butter

Directions:
1. Toast bread.
2. Spread butter on one piece of bread, and peanut butter on the other. Put bread together!

*Calculated from food packaging :
I used “Wonder” brand SmartWhite bread, “Country Crock Shedd’s Spread” brand margarine spread, and “Jif” brand extra crunchy peanut butter.

This sandwich provides a lot of nutrients if you use good bread!

Also, you can substantially lower the calories by reducing peanut butter to two tablespoons and substituting butter with zero-calorie butter-flavored spray.
