This delicious, comforting PB&J Crisp tastes just like a childhood classic!
Remember, back at the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic, when everyone was scrambling for toilet paper and comfort food? And then we gained the resulting Covid 19 pounds, and in response, grew pandemic gardens and only ate fresh plant-based foods to get some sense of control? And then remember a month or so after that, (I can’t really gauge time anymore) when we all just settled into a happy medium of semi-panicked, semi-healthy, semi-comfort food consumption?
Remember all that? Is it just me?
This recipe was born out of all that Covid culinary confusion. It was born on a day when I knew I should grab a handful of grapes, but I just wanted to eat peanut butter out of the jar. (Maybe with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in because
the world is ending why not?). It was born reminiscing of simpler days, when mom (remember when we could be around our moms?) would make peanut butter jelly sandwiches to eat for lunch at school (remember when school was a physical location kids went to everyday?).
Full of equal portions of healthy and not healthy, with a solid dose of comfort mixed in, this PB&J Crisp is just what we need to feel a little more human. And also to use up that bag of grapes wilting in the fridge, because let’s be real, no one really wants to eat grapes instead peanut butter out of the jar right now.
Stay safe and healthy, friends! We’ll get through this!
