Peanut Butter Logs Recipe is a healthier snack option and kids love them. Toasted bread is covered with peanut butter and breadcrumbs for a unique snack.
PEANUT BUTTER LOGS RECIPE
This is a great snack recipe. These peanut butter logs travel well, freeze well, and make great lunch box additions. (Make sure your school allows peanut butter snacks)
Perhaps the best all about this recipe is it uses day-old bread. So, when you’re bread isn’t as fresh as you like for sandwiches anymore, you won’t waste it. Simply use it to make these treats.
OUR CHILDREN’S NUTRITION
As Moms, we are crucial in the development of our children. We are the primary caregivers and are responsible for teaching our children the good, the bad, and the ugly. Hopefully, we teach them about safety, how to tie their shoes, why not to stick a knife in an electric outlet, and about good nutrition.
Today let’s talk about teaching good nutrition. We teach them to eat their vegetables, to make healthy choices and hope they follow our paths when they get on their own. Especially at snack time, children need to know they can have fun, tasty and nutritious foods. I’ll admit, I’ve pureed carrots and hidden them in spaghetti sauce before.
Since my boys love peanut butter, this recipe is a favorite. They are ‘starving’ when they get home from school and if I don’t have something nutritious prepared they’ll reach for the quickest and easiest snack available. That’s usually chips or cookies.
Obviously, that is not the best choice for them. However, if I have a nutritious option they are good with it.

- 8 slices white bread slices or whole wheat
- ⅔ cup creamy peanut butter
- ⅓ cup olive oil or avocado or liquid coconut oil
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Slice the edges off the bread and set aside.
- Cut each slice of bread into 4 strips.
- Toast the strips along with the edges and one whole slice at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
- The bread needs to be crisp. Crush edges and whole bread slice into crumbs. Add the cinnamon to the crumbs and stir. Set bread strips and crumbs aside.
- Combine oil, peanut butter, and sugar. Microwave and stir until smooth.
- Dip bread strips into the peanut butter mixture then roll in bread crumbs. Lay on a cookie sheet to set. If the peanut butter gets too thick, reheat it in the microwave and stir.

Miam, Miam as we said in French! I don't know this bread as we buy it at bakery. Most of the time, I do it at home with the toddler. I'll try your recipe. My partner and son are fond of peanut butter ;). Cheers 😉
