Healthy PB&J Sandwich with Cardamom Nut Butter & Blackberry-Chia Jam

by | Updated: September 4th, 2020

Ditch sugary jelly or jam for fresh blackberries with this healthy PB&J sandwich. With a pinch of cardamom in the nut butter, it’s a welcome upgrade to this childhood favorite. Cardamom has a zesty citrus flavor that’s sweet and spicy at the same time. Mixed with the nutty, rich taste of almond butter or smooth peanut, and paired with the sweet-tart tang of blackberries, well, we’d tell you how next-level it is but our mouths are too full of the next bite. You butter try this recipe!
