Growing up, I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich almost every day for lunch. It was always the same: smooth peanut butter, grape jelly, and sourdough bread. Even though I don’t eat a pb&j every day for lunch now (sad), it’s still one of my all time favorite sandwich combos. So when the team at Peanut Butter and Co. challenged us to start a #PBJrevolution, I decided to get a little fancy and made peanut butter and jelly crepes.
Whenever I’m out for brunch I always think to order crepes just because they sound so much fancier than a plain ol’ pancake or piece of toast. And while crepes require minimal ingredients, I never think to make them at home. And then I received a shipment of these beauties.
My Peanut Butter and Co. treats included Old Fashioned Crunchy, Smooth Operator, Seriously Strawberry Jam and Gorgeous Grape Jelly. These ingredients were just begging to be made into a crepe, and thus peanut butter and jelly crepes was born.
I used spelt flour as the base for my crepes which was a nice change of pace from traditional wheat, and used honey in place of granulated sugar. And let me tell you, there is nothing better than a spread of peanut butter and jelly on a warm, fresh crepe.
