I am one of those weird people who enjoys apples on sandwiches.

However, I’d never considered fruit on a sandwich until a friend and I stumbled into a little sandwich shop the day we were apartment hunting in Mississippi… and not to sound dramatic or anything, but my life was changed.

I was skeptical about going into said sandwich shop, but my friend insisted, and I figured why not? If nothing else, we’d get a taste of the local flavor and a much-needed break from looking at various too-expensive apartments.

Needless to say, the sandwich I ate was absolutely delicious, combining sweet and savory perfectly.

And during the next year and a half, I spent quite a bit of time at this sandwich shop. Not only was it near my home, but it was also located on the main thoroughfare of the town, making it easy for me to pop in on a busy day of covering the news and pick up my favorite sandwich to consume on my way back to the office.

And though I haven’t been to this sandwich shop in nearly five years, I still think about it… and have started making myself sandwiches that celebrate the combination of sweet and savory.

This Toasted Almond Butter Sandwich with Apples and Honey is a fantastic snack or lunch for anyone, but I’ve found it’s particularly delicious on the days I am running.

Yes, this pregnant gal is talking about running, something I have admittedly not done in entirely too long due to the lingering heat in Texas. That being said, this toasted sandwich was one of my favorite pick-me-ups during marathon training, and I’ve been wanting to share it with y’all for a while now.

It’s simple, it’s delicious, and it’s sweet and savory… what’s not to love?

    Almond butter and honey are a great combo.

    • Erin

      I agree with you, Skye! This is such a fab combination!

  2. Sonya

    This sounds yummy. I’ve gone grain-free recently. So I really miss sandwiches. I would love to try this one though. I use to really love eating peanut butter and honey sandwiches.

    • Erin

      I wonder if you could try this with some grain-free bread, Sonya. I don’t know much about grain-free products, so I don’t even know if that’s available, but it’d be worth a shot if you’re missing sandwiches! If nothing else, maybe slather some peanut butter and honey on an apple and enjoy it that way, sans-bread!

    • Erin

      Thanks, Jenna! I’m totally obsessed with apples right now, too!

  3. Jeanae

    I love trying new, and different combos for sandwiches.

    • Erin

      You and me both, Jeanae! Let me know if you give this combo a shot!

  4. Alli

    I love, love, love apples in a sandwich. Sometimes I just pile on the mixed greens, slice an apple, drizzle with low fat Asian Sesame dressing and throw it all in a wrap or pita pocket – the perfect lunch! I’ll definitely try your sandwich. Looks delish!

    • Erin

      Alli, I love, love, love apples in a sandwich, too! Your combo sounds wonderful and oh-so-easy to put together and delicious to boot!

  5. Madison | Wetherills Say I Do

    Wow, I would have never thought to do this! But it looks sooo yummy. Apples and peanut butter are my GO TO snacks!

    • Erin

      It’s a strange-ish combination, but it’s quite wonderful, Madison! I’d like to thank pregnancy for this idea. 😉

  6. Winnie

    This is definitely my kind of a sandwich 🙂
    I actually have almond butter at home
    And we love apples and honey together 🙂

    • Erin

      Glad I’m not alone with this sandwich, Winnie! Almond butter, apples and honey all together are so wonderful and delicious!
