Victoria’s luscious peanut butter and jelly sandwich is buttery, sweet and provides the perfect bite on the fold dripping with creamy goodness.



2 slices whole wheat bread, or any thin bread that can be folded in half

1 tabelspoon butter

4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

2 tabelspoons jam or preserves 


  1. Set the oven to broil on high.
  2. Place two slices of bread on a baking tray and place in the oven when heated.
  3. Toast the bread for about 5 minutes or until face up side is golden brown but not too crispy. Do not flip the bread over!
  4. Take the tray out of the oven and flip the toasts over so that the soft side is face up. Place a 1/2 tablespoon of butter on each slice.
  5. Let the butter melt slightly before spreading.
  6. Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on each slice. Don’t spread all the way to the edge. This prevents all of it from flowing out once folded in half.
  7. With a clean knife, spread one tablespoons of jam on each slice and swirl together slightly.
  8. Fold the slices vertically in half without tearing the toast.
  9. Serve immediately or wrap in parchment paper and save for later!


  • Pick a slice of toast that is symmetrical, and large and thin enough to fold in half.
  • Don’t spread the peanut butter & jelly all the way to the end of the crust. When you fold the toast in half, the fillings with spread perfectly to the edge.
