What Type of Bread Should I Use?

For this recipe we use whole-wheat bread, but feel free to use what you have at home. When shopping for whole-wheat bread, look for whole-wheat flour as the first ingredient. Whole-wheat flour contains the entire wheat kernel, including the bran and germ. Check out tips on how to buy the healthiest whole-wheat bread.

What Peanut Butter Should I Use?

There are many varieties of peanut butter to choose from at the supermarket. But which peanut butter is the healthiest? We recommend using natural peanut butter, which is made with just peanuts and sometimes a little salt. Read more about which peanut butter is best to use.

Can I Swap in a Different Nut Butter?

Absolutely! We recommend using nut butters with a "natural" label; confirm that the ingredients are just nuts and salt (or no salt).

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
