Feeling hungry? This mini peanut butter & jelly sandwich cereal recipe is guaranteed to be your new favorite treat. It brings back awesome childhood memories, tastes incredible, and is so freakin’ adorable I can’t even handle it. It’s a no-bake, no-cook recipe, so pretty much everyone is capable of making it — toddlers, adults, and everyone in between. It’s the latest addition to my mini cereal recipes, coming after a long line of winners such as mini Pop-Tart cereal, mini s’mores cereal, and mini brownie cereal. Perfect for a Sunday morning treat to recover from a long weekend, or even for a kid’s birthday party, this recipe is sure to wow everyone.
Although it’s made with just three ingredients this recipe has tons of variety. Switch up the flavored jam for any kind you’d like: strawberry, grape, or try blueberry, like what I used here. Swap out smooth peanut butter for crunchy, or almond butter if you’re looking to get a little healthy over here. And last but not least, skip the French toast cereal, and opt for traditional bread toasted to a crisp as your basis for this recipe. However if you do use bread, I have a few tips for you: Instead of cutting your bread pieces beforehand, toast your bread, cover it with PB&J as you would when making a regular sandwich, and then cut it into tiny bite-sized pieces. Another word from the wise? If you’re using regular toasted bread, I recommend serving it as is instead of in a bowl of cereal to avoid a soggy bowl of food. If you’re making these for a party, the bread idea looks super cute served with toothpicks in them to indicate finger food, or alongside other mini recipes.
This is for sure one of my favorite recipes to create. While it can be a bit time consuming depending on how many you’re wanting to make, let me be the first to say: IT’S. SO. WORTH. IT.
- 1 box French Toast Crunch
- 1 jar smooth peanut butter
- 1 jar jelly
- Spread peanut butter onto one side of one piece of French Toast Crunch cereal. Spread jelly on top of that. Place one plain piece of French Toast Crunch cereal on top of the jelly, and press together gently.
- Serve on their own, or in a bowl of milk. Enjoy!
