    Sugar is too high. I would remove the jelly and add strawberries. I’ve done this. Also use Jif Whips Peanut Butter. Only 2 gms of sugar for 2Tbsp

    • Shemar Moore’s Bae

      try natural peanut butter. No sugar compared to Jif or Kraft which is full of chemicals and sugars. look at your ingredients: MADE FROM ROASTED PEANUTS AND SUGAR, CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: MOLASSES, FULLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS (RAPESEED AND SOYBEAN), MONO AND DIGLYCERIDES, SALT.

  • I think this is a great recipe for a quick snack but I agree the sugar content is too high for a diabetic or pre diabetic. I would use the HEB crunchy peanut butter and a fruit spread or something sweetened with splenda. I intend to try it. Maybe I will check out the Whips PB.

    • Kingfisher

      Always use almond butter. Much better nut.

        I just made the switch and I love it!

  • Sierra

    If concerned about sugar/carbs I would use PB2 or a split of it and natural PB, and maybe a little less strawberries and 1TBSP jelly but add stevia or truvia

      What is PBS or natural PB, and where can one buy them.

        PN2 is a powder which you add water to to make Peanut Butter which is all flavor! The oil has been removed!!! I tastes wonderful. Most grocery stores carry it. Ask your grocery where it is.
