Peanut Butter-Plus Sandwiches

recipe
Half a sandwich makes a great post-exercise snack. Or enjoy a whole sandwich for lunch. Mix up a batch of the spread (it will keep in the refrigerator for several days), and make sandwiches as needed. The filling doubles as a tasty dip with apple wedges or strawberries.
