Nope. Neither “apple butter” nor “peanut butter” actually have “butter” made from any animals in them. (In case you were wondering.)

So now that that’s out of the way, check out one of Jason’s favorite sandwiches to bring for lunch!

All you need is three things: bread, apple butter, and peanut butter! It doesn’t matter what brand or variety you use—we’re happy as long as you’re eating yummy vegan food! Each of these things should be easily available at your local grocery store!

The sandwich you see uses two slices of pumpernickel bread (hint: try toasting the bread!). Then you just need to spread some apple butter on one slice and lots of creamy peanut butter on the other. That’s all! You’re all set!

I don’t know why I never thought of such an easy alternative to peanut butter and jelly, but that’s the point of these “sandwich of the week” blogs! We want to give you easy vegan foods to bring to school or work for lunch! Or if you’re lazy, you can eat ’em for dinner … ha!

What do you think … does this sandwich sound amazing or gross? Will you be making one sometime soon?

    You can usually find apple butter in every single store or apple mill around fall time. Sadly, it is usually a seasonal fall time treat, ya know?

    Wow, just made one but on toasted white bread. MMMMMMMM, gotta try it good and simple.
    Apple butter is when you cook apples till they get kinda gooey and they add ingrediants so its like a sweet apple tasting substance in the form of butter. Its kinda an appalachian food I think.

    It actually looks really good. But sadly, all I can locate in the store is the strawberry/grape jelly… I’ve never seen apple butter.
    But I think I’m going to go grab an apple and some peanut butter for a snack, seeing as it sounds wicked good now.
