Vegan Mofo 2013:10 Trader Joe’s Fig Butter loves PB & J

Since I’m covering my favorites in MoFo this year, I might as well tell you about my newest and easiest favorite, Peanut Butter, Fig Butter & Jelly sandwiches. (Really preserves, but that doesn’t have the same ring to it.) It may sound silly, but these have really become a staple in my diet lately. I’ve been eating them for breakfast, snacks, lunch, and I think once as a light dinner. I bought the fig butter on a whim at Trader Joes, not really sure what I was going to do with it. After trying it on PB&J, it has now become routine for me to make one once a day.

One layer of fig butter and a thin layer of jelly for a little extra sweetness.

At first I was taking them in aluminum foil, but once it became a habit, I switched to these less wasteful sandwich keepers. I bought them for Thomas for Christmas, but since he didn’t seem to be using them often, I’ve claimed one for myself.

See, I was nice. I left him the black one. :)

This might be something to try for those of you looking for a less sugary option to jazz up your peanut butter sandwiches. According to the label, fruit butters can only be called such if the fruit content is greater than the sugar content. I really like it a lot. I still do add a little of the preserves on there to get a nice salty/sweet contrast. Oh, and speaking of salt… I bought the low salt sprouted grain accidentally. Not bad, but not my favorite. I definitely prefer the regular kind. 🙂

Yes, I eat everything on china. Life is short.

This week was busy and a little light on the MoFo posts, but more are already in the works! I’ll have to get myself back on track this weekend.

Happy Friday the 13th!
