Welcome back to our short blog series. In part one, we began looking at four delicious ways to transform lunchtime meals from the same old, same old into something new and exciting using all-natural almond butter as the main ingredient. Here are some of our favorite lunchtime recipes we shared with you last time:
- Almond Butter Chicken Salad
- Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes
- Healthy Banana Nut Bread Smoothie
- Banana Slices with Almond Butter Spread
Below are four more ways you can liven up your lunches into healthy, enjoyable meals using natural almond butter.

Make Lunches That You Enjoy Eating Using Gourmet Almond Butter
Almond Butter and Jelly Toast
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches make for a quick and easy lunchtime meal, but why not change it up a bit? Use almond butter in place of peanut butter paired with your favorite jelly or fruit preserves. Want to add a little crunch to your sandwich? Add apple or pear slices! You can even add banana slices for a potassium-packed punch to your lunch. Skip the plain white bread made with refined white flour and opt instead for a hearty whole grain bread or English muffin.
Almond Butter, Jelly, and Fruit Pita Pocket
Pita pockets make a delicious pouch for stuffing all of your favorite ingredients into. You can’t beat a good almond butter, strawberry jelly, and banana slice pita pocket, but there are literally thousands of ingredient blends that will up your sandwich game. For instance, natural almond butter, chocolate spread, and raspberries are great sandwich ingredients for all you sweet tooths out there. You can also mix up an almond butter-based salad using chicken, tuna, hard-boiled eggs, walnuts, or tofu for a heartier pita pocket that is both sweet and savory.
A Lighter Lunch
If you’re always on the go and prefer a quick lunch that is easy to eat in the car, almond butter protein bars may be the right choice for you. Take our Almond and Seed Protein Bars, for instance. These are jam-packed with nutritious ingredients like almonds, pumpkin seeds, and chia seeds that are tasty and filling, especially when paired with a side of fresh fruit or crunchy veggies.
Make-Ahead Dip for Fruit
If you like a lighter lunch, make our Creamy Almond Butter Pumpkin Dip to pack in your lunch. Dip apple and pear slices, crackers, and even crunchy veggies like celery in this tasty, wholesome dip. It is easy to make, filling, satisfying, and absolutely delicious!
