Recipe: PB&J Sushi

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: none
Yield: 1 serving
Serving size: 3 pieces


  • 2 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
  • 1 tablespoon natural creamy peanut butter
  • ½ tablespoon sugar-free grape or strawberry jam


  1. Stack 2 slices of bread on top of each other and gently roll them out with a rolling pin to about ¼-inch thickness. They will stick together at this point, as if they are 1 slice of flattened bread. Cut off the crust on all 4 sides.
  2. Spread the peanut butter evenly over the whole slice of bread.
  3. Spread the jelly on top of the peanut butter, leaving about an inch on one of the edges without jelly. This ensures that the jelly does not squeeze out when the bread is rolled.
  4. Start at the edge with jelly, and carefully roll the bread on itself.
  5. With the seam side down, cut the "sushi" into 3 equal pieces.
