What's your very most favorite PB&J combination?

I'm looking for a little excitement here. But it has to be something I can get fairly easily, so please, no flaked coconut grilled over a fire 200 miles east of Papua, New Guinea. Make it easy for me, okay?

        It is... try it.
        I actually make my own nut butter too, mix it w granola and sell it! Its my future retirement plan when I get enough courage to quit my day job. ;)

    2. Here in the Willamette Valley we get the best blackberries. My wife makes and cans blackberry jam in the summer so we have it year round. Obviously you won't have any of my wife's homemade jam but I' m sure any home made jam would do.

      My favorite is creamy Skippy peanut butter with the aforementioned jam served open face on a toasted English muffin.

        I'm with you. My fave is Teddie Super Crunchy PB w/ seedless blackberry jam!!

      2. Trader Joes peanut butter with flax seeds, apricot jam on darkly toasted whole wheat.

        1. Very simple; spoon, crunchy peanut butter, strawberry jam. No need for bread or anything else to muck up what i'm going after.

          1. Seek out the largest granny smith apple you can find. sliced thick spread sunflower peanut butter and apple butter between two apple slices, repeat... until that entire apple is inside your very happy tummy.

              Do you mean Sunflower Butter (made from Sunflower Seeds) or Sunflower and Peanut Butter (made from both Sunflower Seeds and Peanuts)?

                DougR, either works for me! I was referring to this product tho:

                  OK. I figured that you were referring to Sunflower Seed Butter, and that the word "Peanut" simply found it's way in there. Just wanted to be sure.
