Homemade Keto Peanut Butter and Jelly Recipe
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a staple is most households. Need a quick lunch? PB&J. Taking a trip? PB&J. Dinner wasn’t so good and you’re still hungry? PB&J.
The problem is, peanut butter and jelly isn’t keto-friendly. You’ve got high carb bread, and on that bread you’ve slathered on a thick later of high carb and high sugar peanut butter, and then on the other slice of bread, you’ve got a hefty layer of jelly, which is almost pure sugar.
So, what’s a person to do?? Live without the sweet, sweet necessity that is peanut butter and jelly? Well, of course not.
This homemade keto peanut butter and jelly is entirely keto-friendly! And don’t let the “homemade” part fool you, this keto-friendly sandwich is incredibly easy to make. Sure, this keto-friendly sandwich might require an extra step or two when compared to a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but the little bit of extra work is so worth it when you taste the finished product!
Another thing that makes this keto peanut butter and jelly sandwich so good is the use of homemade bread! We love to use our 90-second keto white bread recipe for this sandwich because it’s super easy to make and compliments the pb&j perfectly!
And just like a regular peanut butter and jelly, this keto peanut butter and jelly sandwich is the perfect packed lunch, snack, or… “supplement” to a flopped dinner. It is pretty much always my go-to.

This looks great and I may try this. Being diabetic, I have to watch carbs and sugar (and calories). However I have found that Smuckers has all natural, no sugar added, low carb (7 carbs per serving) and also they have Simply Fruit (no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. The bread I use is Kids My Keto and though a bit hard to chew, it is quite good.. i am looking into making my own Keto bread. So there are alternatives out there. Thanks for all the great recipes.
