60 Second Lunch: 6 Twists on PB&J


The simplest, scrumscious-est (I just made that word up), sandwich out there. Kids and adults alike enjoy the crunchy, salty, sweet mix of PB&J. But as great as this lunch option is, eating PB&J every day can get a bit… stale. Which is why we’re bringing you:

6 Spins On The Classic Sandwich


1. AB&B (Almond Butter & Banana)


With less sugar and fat than the classic, AB&B is the health conscious PB&J lover’s option. Spread both sides of the bread with protein/iron rich Almond Butter, then slice a potassium filled Banana on top. Close your sandwich up and take your first delicious, fiber-y bite.

2. N&SB (Nutella & Strawberry)


The N&SB is a recent addition to the PB&J family, and it was an instant hit. Succulent, chocolatey Nutella compliments fresh, sweet strawberry in an Italian (sort of?) version of this American classic.

3. CO&J (Coconut Oil & Jelly)


I guess this is more of a toast than a straight sandwich, but I feel strongly that it still counts. Toast both pieces of bread and spread a dollop of coconut oil on to both sides. Add your favorite jelly (I personally love raspberry preserves) and enjoy!

PS This would also taste AMAZING on an english muffin.

4. PB & A (Peanut Butter & Apples)


This is a cross between the classic Peanut Butter & Banana sandwich and Apples Dipped in Peanut Butter snack. It’s definitely the crunchiest PB&J family sandwich I’ve ever tried (you can make it even more so with crunchy peanut butter), and it’s a great one to pack for lunch because it does not get soggy. Ever.

5. PB & C & H (Peanut Butter & Cinnamon & Honey)


This is definitely more of a snack sandwich than a lunch sandwich, but either way it’s super scrumptious. Spread both sides of the bread with Peanut Butter, add a sprinkle of Cinnamon and a drizzle of Honey.

PS This would taste GREAT toasted!

6. PB&J on a B (Peanut Butter & Jelly on a Bagel)


This is MY FAVORITE off all of the PB&J varieties. Especially if you toast that bagel up first just slightly, so that the inside is still chewy but the outside is crunchy. This is not a variety I would recommend making at home, however, because your local bagel store can probably make it 100x better.

Do you have a favorite PB&J variation that’s not listed? Share it with us! I would love to try it out.
