PB&J Makeover
Not all PB&J sandwiches were created nutritionally equal. It all depends on the quality of the ingredients that you use.

If you use white bread, corn syrup-filled peanut butter and refined sugar-filled jelly, the result would be a sandwich that will skyrocket your blood sugar, promotes fat storage and leaves you feeling hungry a short time later.

However, if you make this recipe, with sprouted grain bread, true peanut butter made from one ingredient: peanuts, and fruit preserves that are naturally sweetened with fruit juice rather than sugar, then the result would be a nutritionally dense food that would promote stable blood sugar levels and provide you with hours of sustained energy.

Servings: 1

Here’s what you need…

  • Sprouted grain bread
  • 1 Tablespoon pure peanut butter (no added sugar or corn syrup)
  • 1 Tablespoon natural fruit spread (no added sugar or corn syrup)
  • ½ of a banana, sliced
  1. Spread one piece of bread with peanut butter and the other with fruit spread. Line one side with the sliced bananas and sandwich it.
  2. In a grill pan over medium heat, grill each side until grill marks appear and the sandwich is warmed.
