Friday Foodie Finds #31

Posted Feb 01 2013 6:00am
As promised, this week's Friday Foodie Finds is all about peanut butter sandwiches!

Ashley's Coco-Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich  (V)

(2 of 9)

The vegan banana coconut patty is what makes this - and on an English muffin?
I think we all know what tomorrow's breakfast is going to be.
Celine's Peanut Butter Banana Bacon Sandwich (V) Untitled The bacon is actually the chickpeas - but they're prepared in a unique way! Ooh, this is a must-try, also!
I've never thought about adding chickpeas to a peanut butter sandwich, but it sounds like it could be really tasty - not to mention a great way to add even more of a healthy protein punch!
Dana's Peanut Butter and Basil Sandwich (V)
It's yet another unexpected flavor combo, but I imagine that it could be quite good - especially on fresh baguette with a nice, cold glass of milk on the side! I'm definitely of the opinion that chunky peanut butter (aka the best kind) is needed for this recipe.
Maria's Elvis Sandwich

Haniela's Grilled Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich (V)

I'll have to try making that one to share with my little sister the next time I'm home - I bet we'd both love it! 
We all get super excited when the baguettes at Harris Teeter's bakery go on sale :)

Anyway, remember my own unique nut butter sandwich  idea?

Well, I love dried cranberries! The only thing is that, since cranberries are such sour little fruits, dried cranberries always have some sort of added sweetener. While some organic versions are sweetened with apple juice, many are sweetened with lots of added sugar.

And sometimes it really can be lots of sugar. A little is fine, but at some point that healthy dried fruit snack becomes more of a candy kind of situation...

Choo Choo Cherry, Freckle Face Strawberry, Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry (teehee), and Goofy Grape are the four flavors out there to tantalize your taste buds!

All with less sugar than the usual.

Compare that to the 23g to 26g of sugar in many popular brands of dried cranberries! And there's added fiber - do you see that whopping 56% of your daily RDI for dietary fiber?

Kids may say they're not that into fiber, but they'll certainly be into these snacks!

These super-sweet cranberries are so a new favorite of mine as a topping for yogurt messes, ice cream bowls, and (yes) peanut butter sandwiches!

What's your favorite dried fruit?
What are your favorite things to add to a peanut butter sandwich?
Are you going to try any of the above combos? Which one?
