I was the odd kid out who didn’t really like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Squishy bread with all that gooey stuff in the middle was a little too soggy and unappealing to me. Of course, I never had a Pan-Fried Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich – that might have changed things. Even so, it wasn’t until later in life that I discovered this flavor combination could go way beyond sandwiches. These days, dairy-free peanut butter and jelly recipes, like the ones below, are some of my favorites.
Dairy-Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Recipes (Beyond Sandwiches!)
You can substitute almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter in any of these recipes if you need peanut-free options, or if you’ve run out of peanut butter! And if you’re seeking a healthier jam option for these recipes (or your toast!), try my Chia Jam Recipe.
