Tasty Tuesday // Almond Butter, Banana, & Strawberry Chia Jam Sandwich

almond butter, banana, & strawberry chia jam sandwich // a simple 5-ingredient lunch perfect for PB&J lovers A perfectly messy, healthier take on the PB&J. I mean come on, you really can’t have a proper nut butter and jelly sandwich without having the jam ooze from the sides. If anyone has any solutions, I’m all ears! Anyways, you just need to stop what you’re doing and make this because nothing beats nut butter + banana + strawberry jam. 

almond butter, banana, & strawberry chia jam sandwich // a simple 5-ingredient lunch perfect for PB&J lovers I’ve made blueberry chia jam before and I gladly did it again this time subbing in strawberries and date syrup for a little natural sweetness. The date syrup I get is literally just made from dates! That’s it, one ingredient is all you need.

I brought it back to the basics with this strawberry jam to make the whole recipe refined sugar-free. And of course vegan & gluten-free as always!

almond butter, banana, & strawberry chia jam sandwich // a simple 5-ingredient lunch perfect for PB&J lovers My childhood inspired me to make this. Funnily enough, growing up I was always super picky and absolutely hated when my food touched. I’m pretty sure this was normal for a lot of kids right? I still feel bad for my parents though who literally had to feed me from those plates that have dividers for each portion. Anyways, a PB&J was literally the first sandwich I ever ate that had different types of foods “touching”. And I instantly fell in love.

It tastes better that way in my opinion. So yes, I was over generous with slathering on the almond butter and jam. I highly recommend you do so too.

Then nom away to your heart’s content!
