Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls

Today I’ll be sharing a recipe for my kid-friendly, kid and momma approved Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls

I love making theseΒ for an unconventional breakfast, a light lunch, (I usually make 2-3 slices of bread’s worth for a meal) or as a quick snack.

If there’s fresh bread in the house I can’t help it! If eating PB+J as an adult is wrong I don’t want to be right!

These little rolls of nostalgia are great for kids AND adults!

My four year old adores these with creamy peanut butter and I love that I can basically keep the PB+J sushi in roll form (aka no slicing) and take it to go when we’re in a rush. Car food FTW!

To make this easy peasy peanut butter and jelly sushi, simply slice the crust off your favorite bread and slather half the slice with peanut butter.

Spread your favorite jam onto the other half and bonus points for anyone who adds ground flax seeds like I do (helloooo fiber!)

Then simply roll it, slice it, and scarf it!

This post is from 2011 (holy cow I’ve been blogging a long time) so now that we’re well into 2018 I think it’s time to go ahead and update this post with new photos and maybe some fun new sandwich-style sushi ideas as well. Stay tuned for the update – I can’t wait to get to work on this!

  • PB&J sushi is on the kids menu at one of the local sushi places.  Brilliant idea… I don’t like fish, so it’s what I order when I am dragged along with the sushi-eaters. πŸ™‚

    I can’t believe you are still without internet… I’d be clawing out someone’s eyeballs!
