Note: April 2 is National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day
PB&J is a classic kid favorite, but for a child with diabetes you may worry that the traditional option is too high in carbohydrates for healthy blood glucose management. The standard sandwich made with white bread and packed full of sugary jelly can cause blood glucose levels to spike, but that doesn’t mean this sandwich has to be off limits. By simply replacing the white bread with Flatout, you can create a sandwich that not only tastes great, but is high in fiber, reduced in carbs, and contains little added sugar. A win for both parents and kids alike!
Whole Grain PB&J Pinwheels
- 1 Flatout Healthy Grains Soft 100% Whole Wheat Flatbread
- 4 teaspoons natural peanut butter
- 1 tablespoons no sugar added jelly
Using a pizza cutter, slice the flatbread into six long, even strips. Spread the peanut butter evenly over three of the long strips and then spread the jelly over the remaining strips. Place one jelly covered strip on top of a peanut butter covered strip (jelly side facing up). Slowly roll the strips into pinwheels and secure the end with a small smear of peanut butter to prevent the pinwheel from unraveling. Repeat with the remaining strips to create three pinwheels. Serve and enjoy!
