Peanut Butter and Jelly 'Sushi'

My kids love to say they eat sushi, even if it is made with peanut butter. We incorporate peanut butter into my youngest daughter’s diet almost daily, per our doctor’s recommendation. She is severely allergic to tree nuts and has a slight allergy to peanuts. Because the peanut allergen levels are so low, her doctor suggested she eat peanuts daily so she doesn’t become more allergic to them. (Do not follow this advice without your doctor's recommendation.) Although we were nervous about this routine at first, the doctor was right: She’s never had a reaction to peanuts. Let’s just say it’s a good thing she likes peanut butter! Still, we have to get tricky to keep things fresh and new. Be sure to include a reusable fork.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
