After the holidays I always have a pep in my step to start the new year off being the best mom I can be. As the kids head back to school I’m excited to switch up things in their lunch box, but want to make sure they still eat so I’m making these mini-pancake PB+J sandwiches.
Of course my kids would pick to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday, and I want to give them something that will make them smile and will eat. That means Smucker’s sweet jam and Jif creamy peanut butter.
Have you ever taken a moment to really stop and look at the different types of Smucker’s jelly and jams? On my last shopping trip to ShopRite I took a close look and since I was planning to switch things up I decided to pick up both the sweet Smucker’s strawberry jam and grape jelly, they’re made with real fruit so why not. I also thought about letting the kids try the Jif crunchy peanut butter, but I know they’re creamy fans so I stuck with our staple, either way they are getting the fresh roasted peanut taste.
Constructing these mini pancake sandwiches is super easy. I do the prep by making my pancakes on the weekend. They are about and inch and a half in size and I just use a spoon to scoop out the batter and place it on my griddle. One batch usually gives me about 30 pancakes. I also keep the leftovers in the freezer so I easily pull the pancakes out to make these sandwiches.
Once I have all the pancakes made I take 3 that are about the same size and put a layer of Smucker’s jelly on one, a layer of Jif creamy peanut butter on another and top it off with one more pancake. Then I add a raspberry or strawberry or grape or whatever fruit you want to the top to finish it off.
What’s great is the kids love eating breakfast for lunch and this covers that, but it’s still so easy for me to make.
It gets better too, there’s an Ibotta coupon to save $.50 off each individual product, bonus $1 if you buy both. This offer is good from 12/31/2017-2/3/3018.
