10. Peanut Butter Sandwich Bites


$0.10 per serving

To renew your energy during a hard run, it’s important to replenish the three main nutrients your body uses for fuel: carbs, protein and fat. Throwing together a few peanut butter sandwich bites before your run is a terrific way to ensure you can replenish all three.

Tweak this "recipe" however you like. Experiment with whole-grain or gluten-free bread, add raisins or walnuts, or switch up the nut butter to create the ultimate sandwich.


  • Bread (any kind)
  • Nut butter (any kind)
  • Jam or honey


1. Combine all the ingredients to make a sandwich.
2. Use a knife to cut into sections.
3. Pack a handful in a baggie to take on your next run.
