I don’t know about you but sometimes I get a hankering for a PB&J that I just can’t shake! Unfortunately, this all-time favorite comfort food isn’t necessarily SIBO friendly as well as being loaded with sugar and refined carbohydrates. Here is a cleaner option that is guaranteed to support your health and quiet your cravings! This recipe is rich in protein, healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants and makes for a perfect grab-and-go breakfast. As you make your way through the jar enjoy the cohesive flavors of nut butter and jelly, PB and banana, and finish it up with the creamy goodness of yogurt- which is not unlike the classic, refreshing glass of milk needed to wash down a sticky sweet PB&J.
- ⅔ cup White Mountain 24 hour yogurt or homemade 24 hour yogurt
- 1 banana, sliced
- ¼ cup peanut, almond, pecan, walnut or other seed/nut butter
- ¼ cup chia jam or your favorite compote
- Layer ingredients in a clean, glass jar as follows:
- 1st layer 24 hour yogurt
- 2nd layer sliced banana
- 3rd layer favorite nut butter
- 4th layer chia jam
- Add yogurt to the jar first, followed by a layer of sliced bananas. Add the nut butter to cover the bananas and a healthy scoop of chia jam on top.
- Store in airtight jar for up to 3 days. These are a great item to make in advance and take for breakfast or a snack during the work week!
Do you need to use a specific type of peanut butter?
Hi Jill! I’d recommend an organic peanut with ingredients of just peanuts and salt. Santa Cruz is a good brand. I’ll add a link to the recipe. That said, since peanuts are legumes, many people find them harder to digest. You might consider using almond butter.
I just ordered your book – as i have been recently placed on the sibo diet i am struggling with meal options so am looking forward to getting some help with this.
Thanks Jill! Please let me know what you think of the book and if you have any questions!
