In my humble opinion, peanut butter and jelly is one of the greatest combos out there. It’s my ultimate comfort food. Sick? PB&J. Sad? PB&J. Happy? PB&J. Truly – it’s something I can always go for. That’s why I’m so excited to share this PB&J Yogurt Bowl, which takes all the deliciousness of a classic sandwich and makes it a protein-packed meal. I’ve been making this bowl for breakfast and it’s super satisfying and keeps me full for hours (over 30 grams of protein, hello!).
This bowl is WW friendly and high in protein thanks to Greek yogurt, so it doesn’t rely on protein powder to keep you full. However, if you’re looking to add even more protein, you can absolutely add in a neutral protein powder that you like. You can also mix in unflavored collagen peptides, etc to sneak more into your diet!
Making a PB&J Yogurt Bowl
This bowl is a perfect breakfast option because it’s quick and easy to mix up (no cooking required). You could also make the base ahead of time and add your toppings when you’re ready to eat it, which makes this a great on-the-go meal as well. To make it, you’ll need:
- Plain greek yogurt (if following WW, opt for 0% fat)
- Powdered peanut butter (look for an unsweetened one)
- Vanilla extract
- Sweetener of choice (agave, honey, maple syrup, or a no calorie sweetener all work great- I personally use Swerve confectioner’s sugar replacement)
- Grapes (I used jelly berry grapes which literally taste like grape jelly – I found them at Wegmans. I would recommend any dark concord grape for a more jelly-like flavor).
- Optional toppings: flaked sea salt, crushed peanuts, extra peanut butter
In a mixing bowl, combine yogurt with sweetener, vanilla, and peanut butter powder. Mix until uniform. Top with chopped peanuts, grapes, flaked sea salt. If desired, mix some extra powdered peanut butter with a bit of water until runny and drizzle it over the bowl for extra peanut butter flavor. Enjoy!
