Recipe: Uncrustable alternative

Caroline Monaghan

My mother has been a Costco gold-star member since I knew how to walk through those sliding warehouse doors. But it wasn’t until 2015 that she purchased what would be my favorite lunch to this day:  Uncrustables.

Since the day she came home with the hefty 24-count box, I have grown to love the sandwich filled with two of the most flavorful ingredients in my life: peanut butter and jelly. But with a new year comes resolutions, and my mother had only one.

Albeit simple, it ruined my relationship with Uncrustables for good: all natural, all the time. In turn, that meant no more Uncrustables. Desperate, I searched the web for a recipe that would satisfy my cravings.

Luckily, I did not have to look any further than the first result and substitute the ingredients for all-natural options. For a true Uncrustable feel, cut off the crust and use a cookie cutter to make a circular shape.

Ingredients and utensils:

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 tablespoon all natural jelly (or jam, your choice of flavor)
  • Butter knife
  • Plate

Directions

  1. Lay two pieces of bread down flat on a cutting board.
  2. Spread peanut butter evenly onto one slice of bread using a butter knife.
  3. Spread jelly evenly onto one slice of bread using a butter knife.
  4. Press the two slices of bread together and cut the sandwich.
  5. Pair with a banana and a glass of water for a healthy, energy-boosting lunch!
