These Peanut Butter And Jelly Rollups are a fun way to have your favorite flavors! Easy finger foods for kids of all ages!
Peanut Butter And Jam Rollups
If you’re looking for fun brunch recipes or after-school snacks, you have to try these Peanut Butter and Jelly Rollups! A fun twist on a swiss roll dessert, this is a delicious treat that you can have at any time of day, any day.
Peanut butter and jelly is a classic combination that busy moms and college students turn to on a regular basis. I have probably eaten my weight in PB&J in my lifetime and I still make it for myself for breakfast regularly.
That said, plain old PB&J sandwiches can get a little bit boring when you make them all the time. That’s where these peanut butter and jelly rolls come in. I’ve seen peanut butter and jelly pinwheels in flour tortillas before, but nothing quite like these. They resemble french toast roll ups, but I find these even easier to make.
If you have picky eaters at home, this is one of the healthy breakfasts or school lunches that you can encourage. Use whole wheat bread and omit the powdered sugar if you want. Serve them with a glass of skim milk and some fresh fruit and these simple ingredients will give you and your kids energy for the day.
There is no set rule for how many rolls you can make here, so multiply the recipe by however many you need. They are vegetarian and one of those easy recipes that you can make at a moment’s notice since you likely have everything you need in the pantry and the fridge.
Finding a fun peanut butter and jelly alternative can be a bit daunting, but these rollups are going to be just the thing. Perfect as tea party sandwiches as well, these bring the classic pb&j to a whole new level!
PB&J Rollups Recipe
How To Make:
4 slices of bread
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup jelly or jam
2 tablespoon butter, softened
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet or a flat surface with parchment paper.
Cut the crust off each slice of bread with a knife or a pizza cutter, being careful not to cut too much off. You should still have four equal squares.
Place your bread onto the parchment paper lined cookie sheet and use a rolling pin to flatten the bread slices. Spread about half a tablespoon of butter on one side of each piece of bread.
Turn the bread over to the opposite side and spread a thin layer of peanut butter (approximately a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter). Make sure that your regular butter is now face down and you are spreading peanut butter on the plain bread.
Spread jelly on top of the peanut butter.
Gently roll up each slice, so that the peanut butter and jelly side is in the middle. Secure each of the pb&j roll ups with a toothpick.
Bake for about 7-8 minutes until the bread is golden brown.
At this point, turn the oven to broil and place the sheet under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until the bread turns golden brown. Watch carefully so that nothing burns!
Remove your rollups from the oven. Put some powdered sugar into a small bowl and take out a small colander.
Pouring the sugar from the bowl into the colander, sprinkle a little powdered sugar over the tops of the peanut butter and jelly roll-ups. You can skip this last step if you’d prefer to omit the sugar.
Serve immediately for the best results, although you can leave them at room temperature if you are making them ahead of time. Enjoy!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container or covered tightly in plastic wrap on a plate in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
What Kind Of Peanut Butter And Jelly Should I Use?
Use your favorites! Whether you like creamy peanut butter or crunchy peanut butter, choose your preferred texture and brand. I typically buy natural strawberry fruit spread, so we often have strawberry jam sandwiches, but you can choose what you have in your refrigerator.
Apricot spread, raspberry jam, grape jelly – any of them will work. This is an easy way to change up the recipe for each person’s preferences as well.
Can I Use Anything Other Than Peanut Butter For These Peanut Butter And Jelly Roll Ups?
Yes! If you are managing special diets, there are a few easy options to swap. SunButter is frequently used in place of peanut butter, but you can also use a low fat cream cheese. I grew up eating cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, so I can tell you firsthand that they’ll also be a huge hit!
