Toasted Almond Butter & Marmalade Sandwich with Turkey Bacon

I saved the best for last! This recipe for a Toasted Almond Butter & Marmalade Sandwich with Turkey Bacon is one of my favorite recipes from my “Lighten Up Cozy Comfort Foods” that I created for the Almond Board of California.

This quick and easy meal is a fun twist on your regular, old peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I promise it’s even more delicious. Made with low-calorie whole wheat bread, turkey bacon, creamy almond butter, and orange marmalade, it won’t wreck your diet either. This warm, melt-y, and satisfying sandwich is less than 350 calories!

  1. This looks yummy! Can you tell me your favorite brand low calorie wheat bread? I Have yet to find one that has any flavor. So I resort to having the yummy bread that is 110 calories, open faced. Which is way less fun than a real sandwich, KWIM?

    1. @Jessica: Hi Jessica, I thought I would chime in because I use low calorie bread as well. I use Sarah Lee 45 calorie bread and I love it! Prior to discovering it, I used Sandwich Thins made by Arnold or Thomas. I think that Sarah Lee has a much better taste and is more like traditional bread than the which thins, which is why I made the switch.

  2. almond butter and bacon? interesting….. i would have never thought to put those two together and i’m not sure it sounds super appealing… though sometimes those random combinations make for the best flavors!

  3. Good one! I eat a lot of PBJs and whenever I take the time to toast the bread, instantly it seems more special. Thanks for sharing … I’m pretty sure I could make this for my husband for a dinner and he would be excited.

  4. Oh sweet lord this sandwich reminds me of one of my favorite sandwiches I’ve EVER tried back when I lived in Chicago. I need to try this one out!

  5. wow, I was looking for something to make for breakfast this morning before work. We were out of eggs and did not have much in the fridge so I searched online for almond butter and this came up. It just so happened I had some marmalade and turkey bacon but had never thought to put them together, especially not with almond butter. I made this sandwich and not only is it delicious, it’s very filling. I was not able to finish the whole thing. I was satisfied and I did not feel like I undid my whole day with an unhealthy breakfast. Thank you!
