It’s official, I have found a sandwich that has surpassed the PB & J! This sandwich is one of a kind and has replaced the classic sandwich in my life. Sorry PB & J, I’m breaking up with you, no hard feelings though, I just needed to move 3.PNG-19

Goodbye PB & J, Hello Strawberry-Coconut Grilled Almond Butter Sandwich! Here is a new way to enjoy an amazing and healthier take off a classic sandwich. If you haven’t tried the strawberry-coconut almond butter combo, I highly suggest you do before you miss out on your whole life, it’s life changing. This sandwich is not only awesome because of this combo, but because it is not made on normal bread (we are not normal here), it is made on quick bread, think banana, zucchini or better yet, Manna Organic’s Carrot Raisin Bread!photo 4.PNG-13

If you haven’t heard about Manna Organic’s yet, Im here to tell you about this company! I have the privilege of sampling three of their products: Carrot Raisin bread, Banana-Hemp Walnut Bread and Fig and Nut Manna Butter, all of which were amazing!

Our signature product is the fully sprouted MANNA BREADยฎ, cake-like, free of salt, no oils, no sweeteners, no leavening agents. Manna bread is moist and delicious, high in protein and fiber.

  • The Ultimate Grilled Almond Butter Sandwich + Manna Organics Review!


    • 2 slices any kind of quick bread (I used Manna Organics Sprouted Carrot-Raisin bread, but you can use banana bread, zucchini bread, etc. get creative!!!)
    • 1-2 tbsp almond butter
    • 2-3 strawberries (I used frozen and thawed so it created a "juice")
    • 1-2 tbsp unsweetened flaked coconut
    • butter, coconut oil, coconut spread etc. for grilling


    1. 1. Spread almond butter on bread, top with strawberries and coconut, make a sandwich, spread with butter/coconut oil and grill your little heart away!

    Ok so a Strawberry-Coconut Almond Butter Sandwich sounds pretty epic – but, you go and grill it and that takes this sandwich to an uber epic level! I’ve never had a grilled nutbutter sandwich before – I cannot wait to try this! Happy Friday!

    That Fig and Nut Butter looks awesome! I need to check out the Manna Organics company, they sound really good. I have made grilled SunButter and jam sanwiches for my kids before (they have peanut and tree nut allergies) and they absolutely love them!
