Cucumber Peanut Butter & Jelly Recipe

Are you a fan of peanut butter and jelly snacks? Don't put it on bread or crackers - try a healthy version with cucumbers instead! It's low carb and delicious!

1/2 cucumber
2 Tbsp low-carb peanut butter
1 Tbsp low-carb raspberry jam

Slice cucumber into thin wheels. Put a portion of peanut butter onto each wheel and then dollop the jam on top. Munch and enjoy!

Note that both the peanut butter and jam in this case were made by Fifty-50 which is a Diabetic company. The Jam was only 1g and the Peanut Butter was 4g. The cucumber half is about .8g. At 5.8g this is a perfect snack for a person in maintenance but might be high for someone in the first 2 weeks. On the other hand I just ate this for lunch and was quite satisfied, so that would be a reasonable lunch carb count!

Servings: 1
Carbs per serving: 5.8g
