Peanut Butter and Jam Rolls

So, I was browsing around Pinterest because I’m a big foody and I started searching up easy recipes to make for lunch. I’m a little lazy that way and love to make simple food because I more hate the idea of cleaning up afterward. So here I’m searching along Pinterest, looking at all the delicious food and I come across peanut butter and jam rolls. PEANUT BUTTER AND JAM ROLLS!? I know, I was super excited. I quickly clicked on the link and found the recipe and I thought it’d be fun to share.

Growing up as a kid I always loved having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and the thought of turning them into rolls similar to a cinnamon bun (which is also one of my favourites) was super cool. You can make these just for yourself (which I plan on doing) or you can share them with your family!

Here’s the recipe I found. I haven’t made them yet, so if anyone makes them please share your thoughts!
