Amp Up Your PBJ!

Hey guys! So today I went shopping with my mom, and then came home with a strong yearning for PBJ. But this time, I felt a little creative and wanted to, well, make an even yummier PBJ! :) I experimented with some stuff we had around the kitchen, and came up with a tasty treat to soothe my hunger. Low and behold, I now present to you the Extreme Yummy Super Duper Crunchy PBJ!! The recipe is as follows:

-2 slices of whole wheat bread
-JIF Peanut Butter (creamy, not crunchy)
-Smucker's Red Raspberry Preserves (Or jam of your choice)
-1 banana (ripe or rotten, doesn't matter!)
-Your favorite honey
-About 1/4 cup of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal

 Step 1: Spread a generous helping of JIF PB on both slices of bread. Don't be shy when doing this-peanut butter is the most important stuff in any PBJ and in life! When in doubt, add more!

Step 2: Let your dog(s)/cat/brother lick the knife! :) After they're done, be sure to rinse it thouroughly!

Step 3: Spread raspberry jelly on top of only one of the slices of bread.
Step 4: OK, this time you can lick the knife! Yummy! 

Step 5: Slice the banana (yes, I know mine looks gross-I actually prefer them squishy for PBJs!). Then, add as many slices as your heart desires onto the slice with the jelly on it.

Step 6: Add about 1/4 cup (or just a handful) of the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal to the side with just peanut butter.
Step 7: Now, squeeze some honey over the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal to taste!

Step 8: The moment of truth is upon you in the current position you have brought yourself to in this journey to create amazingness between two boring pieces of bread.....brace yourself, do 3 1/2 jumping jacks, and put the pieces together!

Ta-da! You did it! Now, simply slice (or not) and eat! :P

I hope you enjoy making this scrumptious sandwich as much  as I did! Be sure to comment and let me know how it turns out for you! I'd love to hear your suggestions! :)

Happy eating,
