Quick and Easy Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwich

Some nights, we don't have time to make an elaborate dinner. That's when we decided to try these peanut butter and honey sandwiches!

When Daddy isn’t home for dinner, the boys and I cut ourselves a little slack. I don’t make a full meal because let’s face it, I would only be cooking for myself since the boys often don’t eat what we do. They have to try a bite of whatever I make, but their taste palates aren’t as refined just yet.

Last week, when Justin had a meeting to go to, we decided to try something new. Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwiches is another recipe that came from the wonderful little cookbook that Tyler received as a Christmas gift.

This was the winner for the night for a few reasons. The recipe was quick, it was easy, we had everything, they could help make it. And, bonus, I knew they would eat it.

Lately, both Tyler and Ryan have been enjoying a good PB&J sandwich at lunch. I figured this was similar enough that they would eat it, but also something different. They also like to eat peanut butter on graham crackers with raisins, so I know peanut butter is a hit with them. Personally, I can’t stand peanut butter, but they love it!

Step by Step

We started these by rolling out the bread, so it was thin and flat. The original recipe said to make each sandwich from one piece of bread, but that didn’t seem very practical. I was worried the sandwiches would be way too small. So we used two slices of bread per sandwich like you would with any other sandwich.

Once the bread was rolled out and flat, the boys used my biscuit cutters to cut circles into the bread, making the shape of the sandwich. I wasn’t so sure about this because it seemed like a waste of bread. I was planning to throw those pieces in the compost bin. We also had a great quick conversation about how this is fun and different, but it also would waste the bread, and we are trying hard to cut down on the waste we produce. So Tyler decided that he would go ahead and eat the crust while we were building the sandwiches so it wouldn’t be wasted!

They thought it was fun to use the biscuit cutters because it was like making Christmas Cookies! Then the asked if we could make cookies!

After they got the circles cut, I spread one side of each sandwich with a small scoop of peanut butter. On the other side, I added a small amount of honey.

Carefully stack the pieces together to form a sandwich. I found it easier to put the piece with peanut butter on top of the piece with honey since I was afraid the honey would run as I tried to flip it over. Use a fork to go around the edges and seal the sandwiches up, and you are done!

Tyler and Ryan loved these! We will definitely be making them again next time I need something quick and easy (and fun) for dinner.

  1. Your sons look so focused on the project! That makes it a double win…they’ll eat it AND be involved in taking care of themselves. People often forget about the sense of accomplishment kids get from doing things for themselves. I love peanut butter and honey. My go to meal whenever my hubby was gone was always breakfast fixings, but I like this better because you don’t have to COOK! Great job, mom.

    1. Thank you! They have so much fun and don’t realize just how much they are learning when we work in the kitchen together. Meals that are quick and don’t have to be cooked are my favorite for the nights it’s just the boys and me!

  2. It is so much fun having little hands helping in the kitchen. I often have my grandkids (especially my grandson) help….he LOVES it. These look like a fun and delicious way to spend a sleepover morning with Gramma.

  3. Wonderful you include your children and let them help in the kitchen. I always let my children help in the kitchen and they are wonderful cooks and bakers now.

    1. I’m hoping that, by fostering a love for cooking early, they are at least able to maintain a fairly healthy lifestyle as they get older since they’ll know how to cook more than just out of a box.

  4. I love the simplicity of this recipe! And you can get the kids involved too, so much fun! I guess it would work with tahini too, I have a whole jar that I need to use up! Brilliant idea!

    1. It made the sandwiches seem a bit more fancy to the boys 🙂 And they love peanut butter and graham crackers! My oldest asked for it for lunch for his birthday just yesterday.

  5. That looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it! I have been looking for this recipe. Thank you for sharing!!!

  6. Those remind me of finger sandwiches we used to have at tea time back in the UK. They were delicious snack foods. They do look tiny and not enough to be a meal. Anyeay, I wonder what those would look like grilled. Yum.

  7. It sounds delicious and so handy for tough nights! As for instance last night, my husband and I are both ill and nobody felt like cooking really!

    1. Yes, perfect for nights like that. I hope you are feeling better now. If you need a quick and easy dinner for the kids, definitely give this a try. They can help make them and it doesn’t make much of a mess to clean later, either.
