Are you ready to update your old fashioned PB&J recipe? These Protein Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches will give you fresh ideas that’ll easily fit your macros! From high protein to low fat, the choice is now yours with these 2 quick and easy to make healthy PB&J recipes.

For both of these recipes all you need is a bowl to mix your ingredients in and your choice bread or tortilla.

Protein Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

Add into a bowl 2 ounces of Greek yogurt, 1 scoop of your choice flavor protein powder, and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or other nut butter.

Change the flavor of your sandwich by mixing and matching your Greek yogurt and protein powder flavors.

Mix those ingredients together until creamy.

Take out 2 slices of your favorite healthy bread or whatever bread fits your macros and spread your creamy mix onto one piece.

On your other piece of bread spread 2 tablespoons of a low sugar jelly and close off your now high protein PB&J sandwich.

Pro tip? Toast your bread before spreading!

Low Fat Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

Add into a bowl 4 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter, 1/2 scoop of your choice flavor protein powder, and 3 ounces of Greek yogurt.

Again, change the flavor of your sandwich by mixing and matching your Greek yogurt and protein powder flavors.

Mix those ingredients together until creamy.

Take out a low carb tortilla and spread your mix inside of it. You’re going to roll this up so make sure to spread it towards one end of your tortilla.

Top that spread with 3 tablespoons of a low sugar jelly and roll it up as tight as you can.

Pro tip? Fry up your tortilla a bit after rolling it!

Other Healthy PB&J Tips

  • Make either of these the night before
  • Use your mix as a high protein spread or dip on other things like rice cakes
  • Make sure all of your flavors compliments each other
  • Change it up by adding in some ground cinnamon, nuts, sweetener, sugar free chocolate chips, fresh fruit, and so on

    Love you and love your recipes. I trained for 18 years and then got sick and was prescribed tons of medication. I went against all that I knew healthy eating and hard training. I lost my life for 8 years. Now I am back and found you and you saved me. I am back and will be in shape soon and mentoring others again. But I changed and you gave me hope with your recipes. Thank you ❤️I also have a sweet tooth and 40 pounds to get back to lean me.
