Almond Butter and Blackberry Sandwich

I was asked for advice on an easy gluten free vegan brown bag lunch option to pack. This post is for you!

Serves 1-2.

make your own blackberry spread:
  1. Place blackberries in a food processor for 10 seconds until they look like jelly! It's that simple. I know, right??
  1. If you like your bread toasted, please do so.
  2. Distribute almond butter evenly on one slice of gluten free bread
  3. Do the same with your homemade spread or preferred jelly/jam on the other slice.
  4. Flip the almond butter slice over onto the jelly slice, and complete your irresistible sandwich. Wrap it in tinfoil, and head out the door for your busy day. Your colleagues and friends will 100% ask you what you are eating, if it's good, and for a bite. Will you share your healthy lunch with them?
Side note: There was a year (or two or three) of my life when I ate an almond butter and blackberry sandwich every single day. THIS IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION :)


  1. Looks awesome, I am always looking for a great brown bag lunch will definitly have to try. Thanks!!

  2. Thanks! Let me know how it goes :)

  3. that seems way better than jelly or jam, which has added sugar! I love your quick and to the point commentary=)

  4. Thanks so much!! And yes, blackberry spread is my life LOL !

  5. When I was a nanny years ago, I used to make this peanut butter and jelly sandwich fried in butter for the kids. I am going to do the same but use coconut butter with your ingredients. It's a gooey mess but so delicious! Yummy!
