PBC&J Grilled Peanut Butter and Chocolate with Jelly Sandwich Recipe

 The idea for the recipe came to me while eating the PB&J sandwich I brought with me to eat for lunch.  I was starving and yet could barley eat this tasteless thing I had packed for the day.  I started thinking of how I could make it better.  Grilled with chocolate?  I ate just enough to hold me over, and when I got home I took the same tasteless sandwich I was eating earlier and added chocolate and grilled it with olive oil in my cast iron skillet.  Wow!  Night and day.  It was so good I've been craving it often for lunch.  Why did I not think of this before?  It's so simple and good!



  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • mini bittersweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (so it melts easily)
  • organic or natural peanut butter (if it's not natural or organic it will have partially-hydrogenated oils in it)
  • your favorite organic jelly (most fruit, like strawberries and raspberries are on the dirty dozen pesticide list)
  • good quality virgin olive oil (I use Trader Joe's Spanish Olive Oil, it's cheap and great quality)
  1.  preheat a cast iron skillet on medium to high heat and use canola oil to coat the pan
  2. spread the peanut butter and jelly on the bread as shown in the pic above and put together
  3.  put olive oil on one side of the sandwich and place that side on the skillet, turn heat to medium
  4. put olive oil on the non grilled side and flip as soon as the bread if golden brown (be careful not to burn it)
  5. once both sides are golden brown your done.  Enjoy with a glass of milk!
