PB & J Remix

Today’s lunch was a PB & J re-re-re-remix! Since I do not have any jelly in my apartment and I polished off my beloved apple butter weeks ago, I had to get creative to settle my peanut butter and jelly sandwich craving for lunch today.

To create my pb & j remix, I subbed out the bread in favor of a Tam-x-ico’s whole wheat tortilla to make a roll-up.

Fortunately the amazing people at Barney Butter sent me a delicious lil’ packet of almond butter that served at the nutty spread in my revised PB & J.

Creamy Almond Butter

This almond butter is so tasty! I bet I could eat an entire bowl full of it without a problem (though my thighs might disagree 😉 ).

In place of jelly, I used REAL fruit. Who would’ve thought!? I used frozen raspberries that I let thaw to add the sweetness normal jelly provides in a traditional PB & J sandwich.



The bad boy did not disappoint. Though my PB & J sandwich was more of a AB & R roll up, I enjoyed every last bite.

Is there anything almond butter wouldn’t make better???

What is your favorite kind of nut butter?

I am dying to try pumpkin seed butter, but haven’t had a chance to yet. Whole Foods has a machine that cranks out honey roasted peanut butter that is unbelievable!

Okay, all this nut butter talk is a little too much for a peanut butter lover like me… I’m officially salivating and I just finished lunch!
