Peanut Butter and Jelly Rolls Are a Tasty Treat

These peanut butter and jelly rolls include an upgrade over the standard PB&J sandwich – you use crescent rolls as a buttery, flakey replacement for regular bread. These are a perfect quick dessert or snack that both kids and adults will love.

Tasty Peanut Butter Roll Recipe with Jam

I might be over 40 years old (okay, late 40s), but I still love peanut butter and jelly! If you’re a big kid just like me, you’ll appreciate this jelly roll recipe. The best part is that it only has a few ingredients. Three to be exact!

You can handle a recipe with three ingredients, right? I’m saying that to myself. I think we all can handle it.

It includes an upgrade over the standard “PB&J with the crusts cut off.” You’ll use crescent rolls as a buttery, flakey replacement for regular bread. You can’t imagine how buttery and delicious these are!

You can make them with any kind of peanut butter, though creamy is my personal favorite. It’s fun to experiment with different types of jam as well.

We have a delicious strawberry freezer jam recipe you should definitely check out. There’s also a lemon blueberry jam recipe in our lemon blueberry cookies post.

Blueberry was used here, but raspberry or any other types of berry would also be interesting to try! You can pretty much pick any jam off the shelf that you think would be fun with peanut butter.

Don’t these peanut butter and jelly rolls look amazing? I could eat all of them in one sitting! Absolutely no judgements if it happens.

Store them in an airtight container, preferably in the fridge. They’ll last several days (probably 3 – 5 or so). When you bring them out of the refrigerator, let sit on the counter to bring back to room temperature.
