This is the perfect nice and simple snack with only raw ingredients that can be made before-hand so you can grab and go. It does get a little messy, but that’s what makes it fun!

Grab a serrated knife and slice a large apple into rounds, the seeds should come out easily with a gentle flick. Spread your homemade peanut butter and freshly made jelly between the rounds and slice in half or in fourths for bite sized yumminess and serve! Spice it up with a sprinkle of Cinnamon.

Jelly Time:

The first way to make your very own homemade jelly is to take the pulp from a recent fruit juice and re-process in your juicer, food processor, or blender and you can create a simple fruit puree that can be used for anything!

The second method you can use that will give you the option to create a chunkier texture is to take your fruit and just mash it. The juices from the fruits will help create a spreadable consistency.

Homemade Peanut Butter:

This is a very simple recipe that involves peanuts and a food processor, although if you purchase the raw un-roasted peanuts still in the shell you might need to make a movie night of it with your friends. I personally un-shelled the peanuts while my sister watched me struggle  for an hour trying to get each and every peanut  out. It was a rewarding experience and I had no qualms throwing those nuts in the food processor until they became nothing but ball of peanut butter.

It took quite a bit of coercing, but eventually I was able to evenly process all of  the peanuts into a dough-like consistency, so I added a bit of water to make it more spreadable and that seemed to do just fine. Although if you would like a more flavorful peanut butter you could try adding coconut or sunflower oil which will also create a smoother consistency. Maybe you prefer a sweeter flavor, coconut nectar would work and will also create a nice smooth butter so you wont have to add any oil.

Easy Leftover Recipe!!: If you have some extra peanut butter and jelly, toss it in a blender with a few bananas and you have a yummy peanut butter and fruit smoothie for breakfast! Woot woot!
