12 Dairy-Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Recipes (Beyond Sandwiches!)

1

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.
