Gluten-Free PB & J Rollups

These PB & J Rollups are perfect for toddlers and kids.

Having a successful cookout means having something for everyone.

Not all toddlers and kids love juicy cheeseburgers, bean dip and grilled sausage so we’ve made something a little more their liking. To finish off #CookoutWeek 2016 we’ve put together a fun finger-food that you just might find yourself nibbling on too: Gluten-free PB & J Rollups.

So much fun and super simple, this recipe takes less than 15 minutes to make. You can even make a bunch ahead of time and then pull them out when the time is right. Pair it with some fruit and some string cheese and you got yourself a perfect fun meal for all the kiddos to enjoy.

To start, grab a loaf of your favorite gluten-free bread and cut off all the crust. (Make sure to save this crust to make gluten-free breadcrumbs later). Then flatten each piece with a rolling pin and stack to the side.

Spread peanut butter thinly over 3/4 of each slice of flattened bread and then top with jelly. (Make sure to leave 1/4 of the bread without toppings). Roll each piece up towards the part without filling and then set aside. The part that was without filling is now filled in with all the extra PB & J!

This part is optional, but I like to wrap each rollup in saran wrap and then place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It really helps keep the shape since gluten-free bread isn’t as malleable as traditional white bread.

When you’re ready, take out the rollups, slice in 1/2 and serve!

  3. very simple recipe yet looks delicious. This is perfect for picnics since it’s easy to make and kids can actually do this too if you want some interaction with them in the kitchen. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will be making this very soon for my loved ones. By the way, wheat bread is fine with this recipe right?

  4. You can use wheat bread but it’s not gluten-free.
